1 – 16 oz (455 g) tube chocolate chip cookie dough, room temperature
2 – 36 oz (1 kg) boxes brownie mix, prepared according to package directions
24 oz (680 g) cream cheese, softened
½ cup (100 g) sugar
1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
1 large egg
40 double cream Oreo cookies
whipped cream, to serve


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Line a 9-inch (22 cm) springform pan with 2 layers of plastic wrap long enough to hang over the sides of the pan.

Evenly press the cookie dough into a circle on the bottom of the pan, then fold the plastic wrap over the top.

Undo the hinges of the pan and freeze the cookie dough disk.

Close the pan, then spray the bottom with cooking spray.

Then pour in the brownie batter.

Spray the bottom and sides of a 5-inch (12 cm) wide cake pan with cooking spray, then press the cake pan into the brownie mixture until the brownie batter reaches about halfway up the smaller pan.

Bake for 35 minutes, then let cool for about 5 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 300° F (150° C).

In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg until there are no lumps and the batter is smooth.

While the brownie is still warm, gently flip the pan and press down using oven mitts to remove the small pan from the center of the brownie batter. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Arrange a single layer of Oreo cookies (about 14-15 cookies) over the brownie batter. The cookies should be as close together as possible.

Pour the cheesecake batter over the cookies and spread evenly over the top.

Press down on the pan to release any large air bubbles, then bake for about 40 minutes. Then freeze until the top of the cheesecake is slightly firm, about 30 minutes.

Arrange another layer of cookies on top of the cheesecake layer, then place the frozen cookie dough disk on top.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Let cool completely, then open the springform pan. Slice the cake and serve with a dollop of whipped cream topped with another cookie for decoration.
