No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake in a Jar Recipe
No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake in a Jar is a simple yet decadent dessert. The jars are layered with cookies and cream flavor of crushed Oreos, cheesecake filling and finished with whipped cream and cookie crumbles. You’ve got to love single serve desserts like these that are yummy, easy to serve and transport!
These dessert jars boast Oreo cookie crust layers and a soft and fluffy cheesecake filling. They are so quick to put together, the hard part is waiting for them to set in the fridge. They’re fabulous single serve desserts and soooo easy to transport so they are literally perfect for almost any gathering you’ve got to go.
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.
