Ingredients:

Bottom Crust:

  • 22 Golden Oreos, crushed
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter

Filling:

  • 4 (8 oz) packages cream cheese
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Jar of Smucker’s strawberry ice cream topping

Topping:

  • 12 Golden Oreos, crushed & divided into 2 bowls (one for plain Oreo topping, one for strawberry ones)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons softened butter
  • 3 tablespoons from a small package of strawberry gelatin

Directions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the outer perimeter of your springform pan with aluminum foil and generously apply butter to the inside to prevent sticking.
  2. Crust:
    Crush the Golden Oreos, incorporate melted butter, and press into the bottom of your springform pan.
  3. Filling:
  • In a large bowl, place one 8-ounce package of cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, and cornstarch. Beat with an electric mixer on low until creamy.
  • Beat in the remaining 3 packages of cream cheese. Increase the mixer speed to high and beat in the remaining sugar, then beat in the vanilla.
  • Blend in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Blend in heavy cream.
  • Spoon 1/2 of the cheese filling on top of the crust. Spoon half the jar of strawberry topping, drag a butterknife through to marbleize.
  • Spoon the remaining batter and repeat the strawberry process on top. Bake for 1 hour or until slightly jiggly.
  1. Crumb Topping:
  • In a small bowl or food processor, add 12 Golden Oreos and pulse into large crumbs.
  • Add softened butter and mix gently to make pea-sized pieces stick together.
  • Set aside 2 tablespoons of plain crumbs. Pour strawberry jello powder over the remaining crumbs and continue pinching the pieces together.
