Oatmeal Cream Pie Cheesecake
When I was a kid I loved the Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies. I have so many memories of coming home to open one after school. I love sharing that classic treat with my kids through this recipe. Let’s get started!
- Oatmeal Cream Pies
- Cream Cheese
- Powdered Sugar
- Lemon Juice
- Half and Half
- Buttercream Frosting
- Cheesecake Flavored Instant Pudding Mix
How To Make Oatmeal Cream Pie Cake
Start by lining your pan with parchment paper and then a layer of cream pies. Cut some of the pies in half so you can then also line the sides of the spring-form pan.
Set that aside and then make your cheesecake batter. Like with other cheesecakes, make sure your cream cheese has softened before mixing. Use a stand mixer or a hand mixer to get the cheese nice and creamy before adding in the lemon juice and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, mix together half of the pudding mix and half of the half and half. When that is all combined, add it into the cheese mixture.
Pour the mixture over the cream pies, smooth out the top and let it set up in the freezer for a couple of hours.
When the cake is ready, add dollops of icing around the edges and top with crushed oatmeal cream pies and chunks of some of the cookies as garnish.
This cake isn’t just really tasty, it’s so pretty!
Do I have to use a spring form pan?
The short answer, is no. But, when it comes to cheesecakes, they make life much easier. Spring form pans have removable sides, so when your cake is cooled you can easily remove it from the pan without damaging the cake at all.
