I enjoy making small desserts because everyone can get their own and when dealing with kids many arguments can be avoided with this recipe for No Bake Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake. Kids these days are more “alive” and notice things that adults would not.
They are more talkative and oh boy! they sure do ask lots of questions! We do and we don’t celebrate Halloween because of culture differences, weather, mood we are in, etc… any reason one can think of. And trying to figure out what to make or cook has been a bit of a challenge because everything is double or triple the sugar content. Adults always say they will be going on a diet after the holidays but I think we should do the same for kids also. Diet time for them after Halloween!
This recipe is from “My Baking Addiction” blog featuring this dessert for Valentine’s Day. But who can wait for Valentine’s Day and why not make it for Halloween? It has Oreo cookies that resemble dirt and the strawberries mixed with cream cheese can be passed for a hint of blood. Not too gruesome, still not scary, but hey, who can pass off a good dessert.
The recipe has been updated to add lime juice, and almond extract. One thing I noticed when I made this dessert the first time is, by not removing the cream filling in the Oreo cookies, the crust was too moist and overall the dessert was too sweet.
I opted for a thinner crust because the filling is a bit too much and I used organic sugar instead of Truvia Baking Blend also. But besides that, it is a nice creation, good dessert to enjoy anytime. By the way, this is a winner with kids.
Note: No Bake Strawberry Oreo Cheesecake can be made in advance. Less sugar is used in this recipe because of personal taste. The more sugar added, the sweeter the dessert will be. Removing the cream filling from the cookies will make the dessert less sweet.
