Nutella Cheesecake

Servings: 14

Preparation time: 2 hr and 35 min

 

Ingredients

    Crust

  • 250 g (about 30 oreo cookies), cream removed
  • 6 tbsp (80 g) unsalted butter, melted

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 35 oz (1 kg) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (175g) heavy cream + 2 tbsp, cold
  • 2/3 cup (190g) Nutella
  • 1 cup (200g) sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs, room temperature

Nutella Topping

  • 2/3 cup (190g) Nutella
  • 1/3 cup (80g) heavy cream

Directions

 

1.Prepare the crust: Preheat oven to 350 F (180C). Remove the cream between oreo cookies and crush them using a food processor. Melt butter and pour over the crushed cookies. Process until evenly moistened. Press cookie mixture with the back of the spoon into the bottom of a 10-inch (26 cm) spring form pan (with a removable base). Bake for 13-15 minutes. Set aside to cool completely.

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

3.Prepare the cream cheese filling: In a bowl combine the sugar with cornstarch.

4.In a large bowl beat the cream cheese with 3/4 cup heavy cream until well combined and the mixture seems fluffy as the heavy cream has whipped a bit. (This is very important, because this is what makes possible creating the 2 layers effect.) Gradually add the sugar mixture and mix until creamy and smooth. Add vanilla extract and mix again until well combined. Add eggs one at a time until each egg is incorporated.

5.Reserve about 1/3 of cream cheese mixture in a separate bowl. Add Nutella and 2 tbsp of heavy cream over the reserved 1/3 of cream cheese mixture and mix well until incorporated.

6.Pour the white cream cheese mixture over the prepared crust. Carefully add Nutella mixture on top and use a rubber spatula to spread evenly.

7.Bake for 45-55 minutes on 300F (150C). Turn off the heat and leave it another hour in the oven.

8.Remove and run a sharp knife completely around the inside edge of the pan. Let it cool completely at room temperature.

9.Prepare the Nutella topping: Bring cream to a boil and pour over the Nutella. Mix well and spread evenly over the cheesecake.

10.Cover and refrigerate overnight. Decorate with some chopped hazelnuts before serving if desired.
