Here are some tips for making this Strawberry Crunch Cheesecake:

  • I typically make this cheesecake in a traditional round form, but it could also be made as “bars” in a 9×13 inch dish or as miniature single serving cheesecakes made in muffin tins.
  • This cheesecake will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week, or it can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
  • Go ahead and experiment with this recipe! You could use any other combination of topping and “crunch” flavors. One delicious choice could be blueberry topping and crunch made with blueberry gelatin.

These are the ingredients that you will need for this delicious shortcake cheesecake:

  • Golden Oreos
  • Unsalted butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Granulated sugar
  • Sour cream

  • 30 golden Oreos
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter melted


  • 24 oz cream cheese softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • tsp vanilla extract

  • 11.75 oz strawberry topping (ice cream topping)


  • Preheat the oven to 350° and grease a 10 inch springform pan.

  • Beat together the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth and well combined. Add in the flour, sour cream and vanilla and beat again. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and mix in between. Pour the batter over the crust in the springform pan. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the center is just set.

  • When the cheesecake is done, remove it from the oven and pour the strawberry topping on top. Spread the topping all over the top of the cheesecake. Sprinkle the cookie/gelatin mixture over the topping.
  • Cool in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours before enjoying.
