Mini No Bake Orange Oreo Cheesecake

For this Father's Day, I thought of just having a simple celebration with Big Guy and the little ones at home, for the benefit of our expanding waist lines due to lack of exercise. Guess finding time to work out is common problem for FT working moms or stay at home moms.  So while the elder was out for his swimming lesson with the daddy, I made these little cuppies and when they were home an hour plus later, it's ready to serve! 

I didn't have any heavy cream or sour cream at home, so I used the recipe that calls for yogurt instead. This is pretty much a trial attempt, I didn't even use proper measurement as I'm only making 4, so a lot of estimation and test tasting involved.

Glad they came out alright and everyone enjoyed it. 

Ready to make some? Here it goes...

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Waiting Time: 1 hour
Serve for: 4-6 medium cupcake size


(A) For the base
6 tablespoon Oreo cookies crumbs
1 table spoon melted butter

(B) For the Cheesecake
227g cream cheese (1 tube)
1/2 teaspoon orange zest 
4 teaspoon sugar
1 medium orange, juiced
2 teaspoon gelatin powder
113gm or 1/2 cup plain or vanilla flavored yogurt
2 tablespoon of Oreo crumbs (optional)

The Making:
1. Line 4 medium cupcake holders with paper cupcakes. Use the most basic one as you will remove them before servig, or use a silicon cupcake holders instead.

2. Mix the melted butter with Oreo crumbs (short cut: heat up the mixture in microwave for 20-30 seconds!).  Using a spoon, press the mixture onto the base of a cupcake holder for up to about 2cm height.

3. Mix gelatin and the orange juice, stir to mix well and leave aside. We'll come to it later.

4. In a clean mixer bowl, mix sugar, cream cheese and orange zest, whisk till it reaches a creamy and smooth texture (there shall not be any more lumps)

5. Heat up the gelatin orange juice in microwave for 20 seconds (too little to use a stove for this task). stir to reduce the heat and mix it into the cream cheese mix. Add some Oreo crumbs if you are a Cookie Monster like me.

6. Scoop the cream cheese mixtures into the cupcakes laid with Oreo crumbs. Tap lightly on table top to avoid holes in the cream cheese mixtures. Sprinkles some chocolate chip on top.

7. Chill the cheesecakes for at least an hour before serving. Dig in and enjoy!

Simple, isn't it? I told you so. *wink*

Happy Father's Day! 

Original recipe adopted and modified from My Kitchen Snippets. She has tons of interesting recipes there..


• If you can't find ready packed Oreo crumbs (normally available under bakery section), you can use normal Oreo cookies, just remove the cream filling and crush the cookies using a rolling pin.

• Have a sweet tooth? Increase the sugar used. I have reduced the amount of sugar used by at least half as I do not encourage too much sugar in my kiddos' diet to avoid them from getting hyper active.
