Chocolate Cookie Crust with cheesecakeChocolate Cookie Crust is the perfect base for so many desserts, especially my favorite copycat recipe, Olive Garden White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake. Made with only 2 ingredients, this crust is also a very simple recipe.

You can use any chocolate wafer cookie to make this crust. However, I prefer Oreos, mainly because they’re easy to find at the store and pretty much the texture and taste that I want for my crust.

The funny thing is, I couldn’t really find any other chocolate wafer cookies at all. There were chocolate graham crackers, but that’s just not the same as a chocolate cookie. So, Oreos it is.

I also choose to make this crust without all the cream filling in the Oreos. A little bit of icing still clings to the cookies, but for the most part, this crust is all cookies.

It’s easy to make, requires no rolling, and it tastes really good, especially with raspberry swirl cheesecake.Chocolate Cookie Crust Pressed into Springform Pan
