  • For the Crust:
    • 30 OREOs, crushed
    • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • For the Cheesecake Batter:
    • 24 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup sour cream
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • Gel food coloring (black, dark blue, pink, and purple)
  • For the Decorations:
    • Galaxy sprinkles
    • Silver sugar sprinkles


  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C) and line a 9×13-inch baking pan with foil.
    • Mix the crushed OREOs with melted butter until well combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of the pan to form a firm base. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove and set aside.
  2. Cheesecake Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Incorporate the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully mixed in before adding the next.
    • Stir in vanilla extract, sour cream, and flour until the batter is smooth.
    • Divide the batter into four separate bowls. Using gel food coloring, tint each portion with one of the cosmic colors: black, dark blue, pink, and purple.
    • Randomly drop spoonfuls of each colored batter onto the prepared crust. Use a butter knife to gently swirl the colors together, creating a marbled galaxy effect.
  3. Baking and Setting:
    • Tap the pan lightly on the counter to even out the batter.
    • Place a cookie sheet filled with water on the bottom rack of the oven to prevent cracking.
    • Bake the cheesecake for 45 minutes or until set. Allow to cool in the oven for an hour with the door slightly open, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight.
  4. Decoration:
    • Before serving, sprinkle the top with galaxy and silver sugar sprinkles. Press them lightly into the surface to ensure they stick.

Baking Tips:

  • For the crust, use regular OREOs instead of double-stuffed ones to ensure a firmer base.

  • Allow the cheesecake to cool gradually in the oven to minimize the risk of cracks.
