Oreo Brookie Cheesecake made with a chewy brownie bottom, chocolate chip cookie cheesecake filling & Oreo whipped cream! A chocolate dessert dream!
1. Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Line a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan with parchment paper in the bottom and grease the sides.
2. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar and vanilla extract.
4. Add the eggs and mix until well combined.
5. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and mix until well combined.
6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
8. When the brownie is done baking, reduce the oven temperature to 300°F (148°C). Remove the brownie from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
9. Remove the sides of the springform pan, wash, respray with non-stick spray and reattach to the springform pan bottom, with the brownie still on it. You can skip this step, but I find that the edges of the final cheesecake look best if you wash the sides of the pan before adding the cheesecake filling.
1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and flour on low speed until well completely combined and smooth. Be sure to use low speed to reduce the amount of air added to the batter, which can cause cracks. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
2. Add the sour cream and vanilla extract and mix on low speed until well combined.
3. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing slowly to combine after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure everything is well combined.
4. Stir in the chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chips.
5. Pour the cheesecake batter evenly over the brownie.
6. Wrap the outside of the pan with aluminum foil, then place the springform pan inside another larger pan. Fill the outside pan with enough warm water to go about halfway up the sides of the springform pan. The water should not go above the top edge of the aluminum foil on the springform pan.
7. Bake for 1 hour. The center should be set, but still jiggly.
8. Turn off the oven and leave the door closed for 30 minutes. The cheesecake will continue to cook, but slowly begin to cool as well.
9. Crack the door of the oven for 30 minutes to allow the cheesecake to continue to cool slowly. This process helps prevent cracking.
10. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and water bath wrapping and refrigerate until firm, 5-6 hours or overnight. I like to gently jiggle the cheesecake around inside the pan to loosen it from the edges of the pan before I put it into the fridge. It can help the pan sides be removed later. Once completely cool and firm, remove from the springform pan sides and place on a serving plate.
1. To make the whipped cream, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, cocoa and vanilla extract to a large mixer bowl and whip on high speed until stiff peaks form.
2. Stir in the Oreo crumbs and chopped Oreos.
3. Pipe swirls of the whipped cream around the outside edge of the cheesecake. Because of the chunks in the whipped cream, it’s best to use a round tip. I used Ateco 808.
4. Fill in the center of the cheesecake with the remaining whipped cream and top with additional chopped Oreos and chocolate chip cookies.
5. Refrigerate cheesecake until ready to serve. Cheesecake lasts best for 3-4 days when well covered and refrigerated.
