Is the cheesecake layer similar to a regular cheesecake?

The cheesecake layer for this Oreo Cheesecake in a Jar Recipe is more akin to mousse in texture and fluffiness than a cheesecake. It’s not dense like a New York cheesecake if you will. I actually prefer this lighter, fluffier cheesecake layer as it’s not as heavy if you will.

Do I have to use 8oz jars?

No you do not! You can use smaller or larger jars. You’ll just have to adapt the recipe for larger jars. This recipe we managed to get 6 Oreo Cheesecakes in the 8oz jars so you may have to do a bit of math based on the size of the jars you’re using and how many desserts you want.

 For jars larger than 8oz you’re probably going to want to do more than 2 layers of the Oreo crumble layer and the cheesecake layer. In the end there’s no wrong amount of layers, it’s whatever you like!

Why You’ll Love Oreo Cheesecake in a Jar

  • No Bake. Besides being so scrumptious I love that it’s no-bake. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cursed the cracks that have shown up after I baked a cheesecake. While the cheesecake still tasted good, I hated seeing cracks and felt like I had to cover them up lol As well no hot oven on to heat up the house during those hot summer months. 
  • Dessert jars are just easy to serve. No slicing and having anything fall apart when you put it on the plate. Just serve the jar and a spoon and you’re good to go.

  • Easy to put away leftovers. Leftover Oreo cheesecake what’s that? Kidding well maybe but if there are some because it can still be rich, you just put the lid on and put it back in the fridge. Easy peasy, no looking for containers, which was not always easy with a full-size cheesecake. 
  • You can customize this dessert to fit in any size jar you want. 
  • Make this Oreo Cheesecake in a Jar ahead of time. In fact the longer it chills the better the cheesecake layer is!
