No bake Oreo cherry cheesecake is decadent and delicious. Made with a delightful mixture of crushed Oreo cookies, butter, cream cheese, whipping cream, and cherries, it is so easy to make. The most difficult part is waiting for it to set in the fridge. Believe me, your family and friends will go crazy over it.
There are a few tips to making this recipe. To begin with, any kind of cream cheese can be used, but Philadelphia is usually the best. Just be sure it is plain and not flavoured and it is at room temperature.
Vanilla Oreos are the best to use, as they are somewhat neutral in their flavour, but any flavour will suffice. It really depends on your taste.
I often get the question what type of whipping cream should I use, or can I use all purpose cream. The answer is, you want whipping cream that is above 30 percent fat content or it will not whip up properly. You can get away with all purpose cream or other cream, if you make sure it is super cold before you try and whip it.
As far as the cherry topping goes, I simply use a can of pie filling. You can make it from scratch if you want to do the extra work.
