Ingredients

For the crust

  • 3 Tbls unsalted butter melted
  • 18 golden Oreos

For the strawberry sauce

  • 1 & 1/2 Cup strawberries medium dice
  • 1 Tbls granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbls water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch

For the cheesecake filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 Cup sour cream
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

For the topping

  • 8 golden Oreos crushed

Instructions

For the crust

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place 18 golden Oreos in a food processor. Pulse until it forms crumbs, add in the melted butter and pulse again until crumbs are covered in butter.
  • Press crumbs into an 8-inch baking pan lined with greased foil or parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, take out and let cool on the counter.

For the strawberry sauce

  • Place strawberries in a saucepot with 1 Tbls sugar and 1 Tbls water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes until soft. You should stir this every few minutes.
  • Combine lemon juice with cornstarch and stir into mixture and simmer an additional minute until thickened. Place strawberry mixture in blender and pulse until completely smooth*. Place in a bowl and set aside.

For the cheesecake filling

  • Place cream cheese, sour cream, granulated sugar, vanilla, egg, and flour in a food processor. Pulse until smooth and combined. Pour on top of Oreo crust and smooth out evenly.
  • Pour the strawberry sauce on top of cheesecake. Bake at 325°F for 36 minutes or until cheesecake is just slightly jiggly.
  • Take out of the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Crush remaining Oreos and sprinkle on top, gently pushing into the bars. Let cool completely on the counter.
  • Place in a fridge covered and let sit for at least 3 hours until cutting into squares.

Notes

*This is the most important step if you do not want the strawberry sauce to sink into the cheesecake.
