Can I Use Flavored Oreos for the Crust?
Definitely! I love using different flavored Oreos for the crust to change up the overall flavor and vibe. You can even try using Red Velvet Oreos with this recipe instead of the original Oreo flavor, to make everything red and white, otherwise feel free to experiment with the different flavors and see which flavor combination you like best.
How to Check if a Cheesecake is Done
It can be tricky to see if your cheesecake is done baking, especially since it takes quite a while to cool even once it’s taken out of the oven. This means that it continues to cook even once it’s already out, which can affect the overall baking time.
If you’re uncertain about the doneness of your cheesecake, be sure to check these:
- Check the texture of the cheesecake. The outer part of the cheesecake should be firmer than the center of the cheesecake.
- Cracks are normal. It’s normal for cracks to show on the surface of your cheesecake. If there are none, it’s usually a sign that it’s still underbaked.
- Check the internal temperature. The internal temperature should be between 150 and 160ºF.
