Save

There are many different varieties of rich, creamy cheesecake and several delicious recipes for the crust. It is a great dessert for holidays, birthdays or just about any occasion. The crust is easy to make and just as important as the cheesecake and topping.

Things You'll Need

  • Kitchen knife
  • Mixing bowl
  • 9-inch springform pan
  • Large spoon
  • Nonstick spray
  • 14 chocolate cream cookies
  • Cutting board
  • Chop the chocolate cream cookies into small pieces. Scoop up the chopped cookies and place them in your mixing bowl. The cookie cream creates a nice moist cheesecake crust.

  • Crumble and mix the cookies with your hands. Continue mixing until the cookies become a nice powdery mix.

  • Coat the bottom and sides of your pan with a nonstick spray. Use a generous amount, as you can't over spray.

  • Spoon the cheesecake crust mixture into the pan, making sure it's evenly distributed. Move the pan gently from side to side, leveling out your mixture.

  • Press the crust mixture into the pan. Cover the bottom and bring the mixture ½-inch up the sides. Use the bottom of a glass to press the crust flat and even.

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F and bake the cheesecake crust for 8 to 10 minutes. Baking will seal the crust and prevent cracks.

Tips & Warnings

  • For a more classic version of a cheesecake crust, mix together melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and sugar, and use this mixture in the recipe.
  • Cool the cheesecake crust completely before filling.
  • Don't overbake your cheesecake crust. Overbaking can result in a dry or burnt crust.
