Making our first Oreo Cheesecake!

Sometime last week, the two superheroes were in the mood to attempt, for the very first time in their lives... *ahem* making our first cheesecake! OMG. Haha. And this time around, Superhero W was around to help out Superhero S in the "baking" or "cooking", whichever. :p

We started off with no utensils, no ingredients and no knowledge. But the one thing we had was a strong urge that says "We want to make CAKE!" Haha. No... not that cake. Since we had no prior knowledge of making any cakes whatsoever, and for the fact that we don't have an oven to play around with but only a fridge, our options were instantly limited to making only non-baked cakes.

Superhero S actually bookmarked Chef Y's Oreo Cheesecake recipe and like I've mentioned before, I'm no good when it comes to learning from online recipes or cook books. Which explained the fact that I had to read and digest the entire recipe so many times it's too embarrassing to tell here. Haha. *blushing*

So we went over to Tesco and bought all the necessary utensils - whisk, baking pan, aluminium foil, measuring cup, measuring scale; and the ingredients - cream cheese, full cream milk, butter, castor sugar, whipping cream, jelly (which I bought in a desperate measure to replace the no-show gelatin) and of course...the Oreo biscuits!

We followed the recipe...and voila! Here's a peek... before it's off to the fridge.

I left it in the fridge overnight, all the time praying hard that our Oreo Cheesecake would work. The next morning... our little beauty awaits!

Arhhhhhhhhhh...... Fresh from the fridge. It looks almost like the photo inside Chef Y's recipe. OMG. So delicate and I can seriously smell the strong! So by now, I'm sure by now you'd think that we must have successfully made our Oreo Cheesecake eh? Now here's the kicker, somehow... our beautiful Oreo Cheesecake doesn't have the texture of a normal cheesecake. *pauses*

Ahem... in fact, it felt exactly like ice-cream. Or to be more accurate, it felt and tasted exactly like a super duper rich, Cookies 'n' Cream ice-cream. We weren't sure whether or not we should actually rejoice for the fact that we somehow turned a cheesecake into some Haagen Daz ice-cream. Haha.

I'd think it has something to do with the missing gelatin, or probably the temperature in my fridge. Oh well, haha...anyhow, we're more than happy to settle with our first Oreo Ice-Cream.

Oops... I meant, Oreo Cheesecake! Haha. *wink wink*
