I love Oreos..and cheesecake. Why not mix the two? The recipe below is the most similar to the one that was made for this post. The only difference is that instead of jello, we had crushed Oreos as the based instead. I also love how the pineapple chunks that are incorporated with this recipe make an interesting texture and added sweetness, that is not too sweet.
Oh, and this is a no bake recipe. A nice plus am I right?

Ingredients (All rights go to their respected owner, full recipe can be found here)
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 250 grams softened cream cheese 1 block
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 sachet Knox unflavoured gelatin
- 1 cup crushed pineapples drained well from the can
- ¼ cup cold water
- ¼ cup boiling water
- 1 85 grams packet Jello Strawberry (Wasn’t used in our version, we used peaches on top as an added touch)
For the Crust
- 1 and ½ cup graham crumbs (Used an Oreo base instead)
- 1/3 cup melted butter
Make the Crust
Combine melted butter and graham crumbs in a bowl and dump to a 9 x 13 dish. Spread the mixture across the base of the dish and using the base of a measuring cup, press the crumbs firmly against the surface of the dish to form a crust. Refrigerate.
Make the Pineapple Cheesecake Filling
In a sauce pan over medium heat, heat together cream cheese and whipping cream stirring often until cream cheese softens and melts. Add the crushed pineapples and sugar and continue to stir mixture until smooth. Mixture should be ready before it reaches the boiling point. Turn off heat.
Sprinkle knox gelatin over 1/4 cup cold water and let stand for about 3 minutes. The mixture should look thick and grainy. Add 1/4 cup boiling water and stir mixture until the grains are dissolved. Stir gelatin into the cream cheese mixture. Let mixture cool to lukewarm and spoon on top of the prepared graham crust in the baking dish. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours or until set.
Prepare the strawberry Jello according to package directions and gently pour over the set cheesecake gelatin. Refrigerate until set. Serve cold.
