How to Make a 3-Step Cheesecake

With the holiday season approaching rapidly, dishes need to be made, but time doesn’t stand still just because we don’t have time to prepare for them.

Luckily, with simple recipes like the 3-step cheesecake, you don’t have to visit family/friends empty handed.

Required Ingredients:

2-8 oz. of 1/3 fat Cream Cheese

1 tablespoon  of Vanilla flavoring

1 1/4 cup of sugar

2 large eggs

Pie crust (store bought or home-made)

Optional Ingredients:

One container of whipped cream

Chocolate jello


Oreo pie crust


1. Mix all the pie ingredients together with a hand blender on medium until the mixture is smooth.

2. Pour the mixture into your desired crust and bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.

3. After removing it from the oven, place the cake in to the refrigerator and leave it there until completely cooled.

The next steps only apply to those who plan on adding the whipped cream topping to their cheesecake.

4. Pour half a bag of jello in to the tube of whipped cream and stir until the dry contents are no longer visible.

5. Spread the mixture over the top of the cake.

6. Pour some of the Oreos in to a zip-lock bag and hit them with a mallet until they’re of your desired consistency. If you don’t have a mallet, you can crunch them up with your hands.

7. Spread the crunched up Oreos over the cake.

For a strawberry-based cheesecake, replace the chocolate jello with strawberry jello and use a regular crust instead of an Oreo crust.
