No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

You wouldn’t judge someone if they ate half a no bake Oreo cheesecake in just a couple of days, would you? I’m asking for a friend.

PIN IT NOW to save for later!

This No Bake Oreo Cheesecake is easy, fast, foolproof and filled with Oreos!! It's the perfect summer recipe!


Well, it’s starting. We’re on tap to get our first triple-digit day here in Sacramento this week. I don’t know why I’m surprised – this happens every year. May creeps into June and the temperatures creep upward and then BAM: sweltering heat.

Everyone gets up in arms about how it’s 100 degrees! OMG! It’s so hot! But really, it’s Sacramento in June, what do we expect? (And, BTW, by everyone I mean me.)

Admittedly, Sac is better than Phoenix. I’m sure it hit 100 at our old house in March, so I won’t complain too much…

But I’m still going to complain a little. After all, if I lived in San Francisco this week I’d be putting on jeans and gloves. It’s only going to be 70 there, and foggy. I love the fog. I miss the fog. If I could live in SF again I swear I would never ever complain about the fog again. I’d embrace it like the heaven it is.

I’d also embrace a slice of this cheesecake. It’s pretty heavenly too.

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Recipe

Once the temps start climbing I do not want to turn on my oven. A running oven means a hotter house which means more A/C which means that my electricity bill makes me have to work harder, which means I have to bake more. It’s a vicious cycle.

That is, until you bring no-bake cheesecake into the equation. I can make no bake recipes all summer long and it doesn’t make me cry when I read my PG&E bill.

Adding Oreos to the no-bake cheesecake is just, let’s say, the icing on the pie.

This recipe can be made in under 20 minutes, I promise. You start with a no-bake Oreo crust. You can make your own there with that little how-to post, or you can buy one from the store. Then comes the fun part: the no bake cheesecake!

No bake cheesecake is one of my favorite pies to make because it’s fast, easy, and it works every time. It’s totally no-fuss! Start with a brick of cream cheese that you’ve let soften on the counter for at least an hour. (Honestly, that’s the hardest part of this recipe – remembering to leave the cream cheese out!)

You sweeten the cream cheese with sugar and vanilla and then you add the fun part: the Oreos! I coarsely chopped some Oreo cookies and then mixed them into the cream cheese with my hand mixer. Doing this breaks up the cookies even more and gives that all-through-the-cheesecake Oreo look.

You know, like this:

How to make a No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

Then, to give the cheesecake it’s volume, you fold in a container of Cool Whip.

The hot button question: can you use fresh whipped cream? Yes, but only if you’re serving this pie the same day. Fresh whipped cream doesn’t hold up like whipped topping does and it tends to weep and flatten over time. So if you’re making and serving this pie within a couple hours, it’s probably okay with the fresh.

Fold in your whipped topping, fill your pie, and chill for at least an hour. Before serving, top with some more whipped topping and crumbled cookies. Because, duh, that makes it better.

No bake cheesecake is a winner all year long, but especially in the summer.

Just be careful around it. Before you know it, you might eat half a pie! #wishIwaskidding

  1. I just made your Oreo crust last night and it was amazing. So now the only thing to do is make this. This recipe looks so easy but yet looks so amazing. It`s making me crave a large slice now and it`s only 6 a.m. I`m going to have to try this one very soon.

  2. Dorothy, the heat is making you delusional. You would never love SF fog because it’s terrible. Cold, damp, awful. I love the restaurants in SF and the great fitness opportunities. The hills and fog? Noooo.
    I wish we could swap climates. But in a way it’s better that you are where you are so you can make amazing no-bake cheesecake. I love this flavor. I mean, it’s Oreo. What could possibly be better?

  3. I can’t believe it’s that hot up there! San Diego is so chilly in May and June that I wear tons of layers on my evening runs. Yeah, for real. Like it’s low 60s and damp and windy and sorry I’m a wimp LOL  I love that this is no-bake. That makes is wayyyy too easy to enjoy 🙂

  4. i totally would not judge. I would be the one asking if I could dig in with you! 🙂

  5. I totally will not judge you Dorothy! It just looks so good! Luckily in New York we haven’t gotten too hot yet so I can still use my oven. I don’t think I could survive 100 degree temps!

  6. *Gasp* 100 all ready? It is 55 where I am and I think it is warm! I wish I lived somewhere with temperatures like Sac. This cheesecake looks like the bomb, oreos and cheesecake are just made for one another! P.s Not judging, it looks so tasty, your *friend* must of enjoyed every bite!

  7. So glad to see those crusts didn’t go to waste! This looks crazy amazing and loving that it’s no-bake!

  8. Oreos and cream cheese – I am SO there! This looks like my ultimate dessert Dorothy! And there’s never any judgement around here 😉

  9. Wow, this looks great! I don’t supposed the other half is in the freezer with my name on it??? lol

  10. Enduring sub-zero temps in Minnesota for 15 years has made me so heat tolerant. I almost love it. Almost. I’m a summer gal at heart. BUT that doesn’t mean I can stand the oven on…no-bake treats FTW.

  11. I miss SF, too!  Even the sound of the foghorns at night. Last summer we spent a few days in San Diego, and it was sooooo hot, and a lot of people don’t have air conditioning because they depend on ocean breezes (which were not blowin’ when we were there!).  Glad to have a no-bake dessert!

  12. Yummers!! Oreos + Cheesecake= my favorite things!! 🙂 

  13. I get the feeling that a certain someone in my life might never forgive me if I scroll past this recipe without making it for him…

  14. Ohhh this certainly looks dreamy! And when served cold on a hot day? Oh man, it’s already making me happy!! =)

  15. No bake and oreo in the same title?! I’m sooo sold 🙂

  16. I have no shame with cheesecake..especially the no-bake variety. They’re so fabulous and easy! Thanks. 🙂

  17. I have made a version of no bake cheesecake that will last a week in the fridge using heavy cream. The key is to use clear unflavored gelatin mixed into the cream cheese mixture before folding in the whipped cream and refrigerating for at least 4 hours to set. You will bloom the gelatin into about 1/2 cup water while you beat the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until fluffy. Heat the gelatin over low heat but do not boil. Stream gelatin into the cream cheese mixture as you beat it. Quickly fold in whipped cream, our onto prepared crust and refrigerate. Making it this way makes the cheesecake less sweet.

  18. Oreo cheesecake is my sons favorite~ thank you for a less labor-intensive version! yummy!

  19. It’s official: I need copious amounts of this fabulous cheesecake. 

  20. That oreo cheesecake looks so yummy and easy to make! Love that it’s no-bake too!! 🙂

  21. I can’t even imagine what 100 degrees feels like anymore.  I can’t remember living in Chicago.  But I do want a serious bite out of this epic pie.  Yes epic!

  22. Cheesecake is the magic word for me! I want this!! 

  23. I would only judge you if you didn’t save me a slice. Then again, I could also forgive you for that too! I love a good Oreo cheesecake! 

  24. We are nowhere near 100 degrees, but it is HOT here and I am definitely not turning my oven on for any reason! Love this cheesecake! It looks so creamy and cool and delicious!

  25. This is totally the type of dessert I could eat. all. by. myself. It looks SO dreamy!

  26. Oh my word! YES, Please!!!

  27. Oreo cheesecakes are my weakness so I would totally not judge! It looks amazing! Love that it
    s no-bake! Perfect way to beat the heat!

  28. Wow, this Oreo cheesecake looks amazing, yet so simple to make!

  29. You know how I feel about cheesecake goodness 😉  I love that this is no bake…perfect for the steamy hot summer months!  We don’t get that hot until July or Aug. though!

  30. Oh man, this cheesecake looks so good! I love Oreos and they do so well in no-bake things. Thank goodness we haven’t hit triple digits here in Alabama yet. I will make sure to have some of this cheesecake ready whenever that happens. 😉

  31. Wow, how easy! I can’t wait to make this for my little boys! They would be in heaven. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  32. Why ounces? I find them so confusing as its a weight and a volume. So when I see ounces I’m like am I using a measuring cup or a scale. You should use things like 8 fluid ounces instead of just ounces if it’s volume.

    • I wrote 1 container (8 ounces) Cool Whip because that’s the size of the container I used. Cool Whip containers come in 2 or three sizes so it’s important to say which size container I used. I did not measure it, by scale or cups or otherwise. I just used the 8 ounce package.

  33. I visited your website. Thanks your have many tips. I like your post. Thanks again.

  34. Hi, just made the cheese and it was great. One thing that could be good to mention (I’m a novice here) is to remember to thaw the cool whip about 4 hours before beginning.  All the places that carry cool whip or similar are frozen.  Thanks for the great write up. 

    • I wish I had read this before making it 🙁 I bought frozen whipped topping (I’ve never used it in a recipe before) and put it in straight out of the freezer so I had to kind of beat it in and it flattened.

  35. Looks yummy!!!! Something I’d make for my nephews and niece! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  36. Love the receipts..cannot wait to try them all. Thank you  .

  37. I make a similar no-bake cheesecake, minus the Oreos, and I love it. I can’t wait to try it with Oreos! I’m making it right now.

    One tip that I’d give is to use powdered sugar instead of granulated. It blends into the cream cheese so much easier and smoother. 

    My recipe is way sugary-er – I use one 8 oz package of cream cheese, one of 8 oz cool whip, and 1 cup of sugar. I could definitely see cutting back on some of that sugar though. 

  38. Has anyone tried adding dry Oreo pudding mix to this for more Oreo yumminess ? I don’t know if that’s a real word ! LOL

  39. I was looking for some no-bake desserts through the Google search engine, when I found your blog. I’m a HUGE fan of Oreo cookies!! I can’t wait to make this mouthwatering dessert. Best of all, I don’t have to share!! 🙂

  40. This is such an easy and delicious recipe, I love it! Thank you!

  41. This was absolutely amazing! I used home made whipped cream instead of cool whip and just chopped up the oreos in my food processed and I was so happy with the result! Thank you for posting! 

  42. This was great! So easy and delicious! 😊 

  43. What about the white icing looking stuff around the crust? I don’t see anything for that. just the pie filling

  44. I was done at the “no bake” part. . .then add Oreo’s and I’m sold!

  45. I just found this and it looks so good! Can it be frozen?

  46. I wouldn’t judge…because I could probably eat the whole thing in a few days (who stops at half?) 😉

  47. Oreo Cheesecake cookies are my husband favorite recipe.I loved your way of cooking.So delicious and yummy.Cheesecake RECIPES has a unique taste. Before this I made Chicken Keema Paratha Recipe from best cooking source, Sharing a link with you: ( ).

  49. If there’s a vanilla crust, can I substitute the oreos for fruit?
