Process the Oreo cookies in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. Drizzle in the melted butter while pulsing. Give it a stir to make sure the crumbs are coated in the butter.
Press the crumbs into a 9-inch springform pan on the bottom and slightly up the sides. Place it in the freezer while you assemble the filling.
In a large bowl, whip the cream cheese with an electric hand mixer, until smooth. Add the granulated sugar, powdered sugar, vanilla, and peppermint extract, mix to combine, set aside.
In a medium bowl, whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks, make sure not to over-mix. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture gently until there are no streaks.
Tips and Recipe Variations
- Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese filling gently so you don’t deflate the air.
