For the Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 16 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (like Oreo)
  • 1 cup of cherry pie filling

For the Topping:

  • Additional cherry pie filling
  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh cherries for garnish (optional)


Step 1: Prepare the Crust

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the chocolate cookie crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar. Stir until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  2. Press the cookie mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to form an even crust. Place it in the refrigerator while you prepare the cheesecake filling.

Step 2: Make the Cheesecake Filling

  1. In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it becomes smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the granulated sugar and vanilla extract to the cream cheese and continue to beat until the mixture is well combined and fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until it’s fully incorporated.
  5. Now, fold in the crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, creating a delightful cookies and cream cheesecake filling.

Step 3: Assemble the Cheesecake

  1. Remove the crust from the refrigerator and spread half of the cheesecake filling evenly over the crust.
  2. Spoon the cherry pie filling on top of the cheesecake layer and spread it out evenly.
  3. Carefully add the remaining cheesecake filling, smoothing it over the cherry layer.

Step 4: Chill and Serve

  1. Cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until it’s set.
  2. Once set, remove the cheesecake from the springform pan and place it on a serving platter.
  3. Top the cheesecake with additional cherry pie filling and a generous dollop of whipped cream.
  4. For an extra touch of elegance, garnish with fresh cherries if desired.

Tips for Success:

  • Ensure that your cream cheese is at room temperature for a smooth and creamy filling.
  • Don’t rush the chilling process; allowing the cheesecake to set properly is key to its texture.
  • Experiment with different flavored cookies for the crust for a unique twist on this classic dessert.
