  2. Golden oreo cookie (with filling) or cookie wafer only (without fillings)? I've found and used dark oreo wafers for crusts just like this description, but I can't find the plain golden wafers. Do I separate the filling from the standard grocery store cookie, or leave the filling as part of this recipe?

    2. I made this recipe twice now and I can tell you, its both. Use the cream amount listed in the recipe then thin it with milk if needed.

    3. Are the directions under topping used for the entire top layer of the cheesecake? Or just the accents?

  6. I am confused...Is this supposed to be baked in a bain-marie like most cheesecakes?
    It says to:
    "Wrap pan with heavy duty foil. Place springform pan in a large baking pan. I use a 9x13 pan. Fill pan 1/2 way up the side of the springform pan.
    Remove springform pan from 9x13."
    There is no mention about the hot water.

    1. I also have a question about the oreo crust.
      Most cheesecake recipes have you bake the crust (usually graham cracker, sugar & butter) first, this recipe only says to freeze it then pour the batter in and bake.

    2. Pouring the batter into a frozen crust just before baking will result in a softer crust in the final cheesecake. I usually bake cheesecakes in a Bain Marie with hot water. You'll also want to make sure the outer pan is no higher than your springform pan for even heat distribution.

  9. The cake looks like it has a cream layer ontop of it with caramel swirled in, are the directions listed under topping also what is used ontop of the cheesecake where the caramel swirls are as well? Or are there supposed to be seperate directions for that as well?

    1. the toppping is mentioned as the icing, if you want the swirls, use caramel in a squeeze bottle to paint your lines across the top, then drag a knife tip or toothpick across to create your design, there are many youtube videos on painting plates for reference
