This gluten free Oreo cheesecake recipe is honestly one of the easiest desserts you could make – perfect for the summer when it’s too hot to cook.

It would be a fabulous BBQ or picnic dessert, but is also a real crowdpleaser if you want a simple Christmas dessert or Thanksgiving sweet idea too.

Using gluten free Oreos (or the supermarket equivalents) nobody will even know this is gluten free. I fed it to all the gluten-eaters I could find to double check!

Ingredients

There’s a printable recipe card below, but here are the ingredients you will need to make my No Bake Oreo Cheesecake.

For the gluten free Oreo crust you will need:

  • Gluten Free Oreos: If you’re in the US or Canada you will probably be able to source gluten free Oreo cookies a lot easier than I can in the UK. Gluten Free Oreos are not widely sold in the UK and are therefore very expensive due to import taxes! However, any free from substitute will work though. You can find Gluten Free Cookies and Cream biscuits in the free from aisles at Asda, Sainsburys, Tesco and Morrisons. I tried the real thing when I was in Vancouver and these are a very good alternative, trust me!
  • Butter: This helps to bind the base together. I always use unsalted butter.

For the Oreo cheesecake filling you will need:

  • Full-Fat Cream Cheese – It’s essential you use full fat cream cheese in this recipe. Using a low fat version just won’t work! Any brand works but I recommend Philadelphia for the best quality. Mascarpone is a good alternative.
  • Vanilla Extract – Most vanilla extract is gluten free but always double check when buying.
  • Icing Sugar – Adding icing sugar (powdered sugar in the US) is essential for adding a sweetness to the topping.
  • Double Cream – Delicious double cream is whipped up in the cheesecake topping, helping it to firm up. In the US use whipping cream or heavy whipping cream.
  • Gluten Free Oreos: Crushed Oreos are folded into the cheesecake mixture which gives a lovely speckled texture and cookies and cream taste throughout.

Recipe Tip

You absolutely MUST use a full-fat cream cheese when making a no-bake cheesecake. If you use a low-fat or non-fat cream cheese you will just find the topping does not set.

I always recommend Philadelphia as my favourite brand to make cheesecake with as it’s super thick and creamy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I remove cheesecake from a springform tin?

Nobody wants to spend hours waiting for a cheesecake to chill for it to fall apart at the last minute! To remove a cheesecake from the tin, simple unclip the spring then carefully run a butter knife around the inside edge, gently separating the cheesecake from the tin. Lift the tin off of the base, then use a small spatula to perfect any knocks or scrapes!

How to store your Oreo cheesecake

This no bake Oreo Cheesecake recipe must be kept in the fridge but you can do this for up to 5 days. You can also make it ahead of time as long as it’s kept refrigerated.

Can I freeze no bake Oreo cheesecake?

Yes, you can freeze a no bake cheesecake! If you’re making this ahead of time you can freeze the whole thing and then defrost in the fridge overnight. Or, freeze any leftovers in slices with a sheet of baking paper between them so they don’t stick together. Then you can defrost a slice at a time!

Help – I don’t have a food processor!

If you want to make a biscuit cheesecake base without a food processor don’t worry, you can do this easily! Simply pop the Oreo biscuits in a sandwich bag, seal it up and bash it with a rolling pin. Once the Oreos have turned to crumbs you can add them to the melted butter and mix. This is how we made cheesecake bases as kids, and it’s certainly a great stress relief!
