Oreo Chocolate Cream tart

1 Apr

Puttered around the supermarket this morning and found Oreo biscuits for $1.  Naturally, I bought multiples.  Here’s experiment #1 with Oreo’s, which I have dubbed an Oreo Chocolate Cream Tart.  Eating it now, it’s pretty fab.  And easy to make.

Ingredients:

1 packet Oreo biscuits

80g butter

250g cream cheese, softened

dash vanilla extract

1/2 cup caster sugar

1 teaspoon gelatine, dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling water (prepare at start to allow for cooling time)

dark chocolate, to decorate

 

 

Finely crush the Oreos in a food processor.

Biscuits go in...

...Dirt comes out!

Melt the butter, and mix in with the biscuits.  Find a tart case, put baking paper on the bottom and butter up the sides a little.  Pour the biscuit/butter mix into the case and spread out to make a, well, for want of a better word, case.

The sides don't particularly matter, you can trim it later.

Place in a 170 degree oven for about 10 minutes, then let cool.

Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract with a mixer.  Mix in gelatine/water.  Pour into tart case.

Ready to pour...

All in!

Place in fridge until set (about 2-3 hours).

Ready for decorating

Once set, you can decorate it.  Let’s face it, that tart looks damn boring.  I melted some dark chocolate and drizzled it on top.  Simple, but it certainly improves the look.

Wait until the chocolate is set to serve

To cut, place a sharp knife in boiling water, wipe it off, then slice.  Stops the sides being marred with crumbs, etc.  Dust with cocoa powder to serve.

Voila

Serves…um…I’m going to say 8.  It’s pretty rich, small serves are best.

Next time: Oreos and … Peanut Butter.
