Oreo Cheesecake (Baked)

Who will turn down if someone offers you a slice of Oreo Cheesecake? I think I will be one of them.  I don't really like desserts that are too creamy and rich. 

I used to like the dense and rich cheesecakes but it seems that my taste bud has changed over time.    It's not that I don't eat it anymore, I still take a bite.  However, I am no longer craving for it or eat more than a bite.    

Why I baked?  

This is specially baked for my younger daughter to curb her craving.     

In this picture, the cake may look big.  In actual fact, it's just a 4" round cake.  I only used 125g of cream cheese since this is a rich cake, I will not want her to overload with high calories and fat. 

My daughter didn't know I baked the Oreo Cheesecake, when I gave it to her that morning, she was so delighted.   She brought it to school to share with friends and it was well received by them.   

Are you one of the Oreo Cheesecake lover?  Enjoy baking!
