Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Crust:
  2. Take the separated cookies, and pulverize them to a fine crumb.
  3. Mix together crumbs, butter, and sugar.
  4. Press into the bottom of a 9 inch spring-form pan.
  5. Preheat the oven to 325 F and prepare a water bath in your huge pan.
  6. To prepare the water bath simply fill the pan with 1 inch 1 1/2 inch of hot water, and place in the oven.
  7. Wrap the bottom of the spring-form pan with a layer of saran wrap, and a layer of foil, then tie the top edge of the pan with kitchen string.
  8. Make the Batter:
  9. Beat together the cream cheese and sugar for no more than 1 minute.
  10. Mix in the eggs 1 at a time until just barely incorporated.
  11. Slightly mix in the cocoa powder.
  12. Then add in the sour cream, buttermilk, vanilla, vinegar, and food coloring and mix until just blended. DO NOT OVER MIX YOUR BATTER!!! This is very important, it will create bubbles in the top of your cheesecake making it look like the moon.
  13. Pour the batter into your oreo crust.
  14. Bake for 10 minutes at 325 F, reduce the heat to 300 F and bake until the center is set*
  15. Make the Frosting:
  16. Mix together the cream cheese, butter, and creme from the oreos until smooth.
  17. Beat in the vanilla and almond, then mix in the powdered sugar until it is thick and sweet.
  18. Frost your cheesecake and decorate with desired sprinkles.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Since most of its calories come from fat, sour cream has a bad reputation for being an unhealthy food. However, fat is an important part of the diet and studies suggest people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who reach for reduced fat products. That said, fat has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, so if you are counting calories to lose weight, you might want to try substituting greek yogurt for some of the sour cream in recipes that call for a lot of it.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If you need to soften a block of cream cheese before using it, you can unwrap it and heat it in the microwave on high for 10-15 seconds at a time until it is soft enough.

  • If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, just pour a tablespoon of white vinegar into a glass and add enough milk to make one cup. Let sit for about five minutes, and voila, a great buttermilk substitute!

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Don't despair if you don't have powdered sugar on hand. All you need is granulated sugar and a good blender. Pour in the granulated sugar and blend at a high speed until you have a powder.
