Fresh and sweet: Oreo “kwarktaart”
I was looking online for a translation for “kwarktaart” in English, but it appears to be a very Dutch dish so I’ll just keep saying kwarktaart. It’s a fresh, no bake cheesecake like treart, made out of quark and whipped cream and in this case: OREO.
Does it need any more introduction? Who wouldn’t love a delicious fresh piece of kwarktaart with pieces of Oreo, on top of a thick bottom made out of Oreo? Well I sure would and my bet is you will too!
I made this cake during one of my baking days on which I bake a lot of things in one sitting so I can work them out for the blog. Because it’s not a good idea for me to eat all of it, I took this cake to my inlaws and even the biggest nitpick that never tries anything new absolutely loved this one. And that’s about the biggest compliment I could get.
What you need
- 2 packs of Oreo
- 50 grams butter
- 500 grams quark
- 250 ml whipped cream (unwhipped)
- 150 grams sugar
- 2 packs of Whip it
- Mixing bowl
- Food processor
- Cutting board
- Sauce pan
- Springform (18-20 cm)
- Save the kwarktaart for max. 2 days in the fridge
Take the Oreos out of the pack and put 5 cookies aside. Put the rest of the cookies in the food processor and grind them into fine crumbs. Put the butter in the sauce pan and melt it. When it’s completely melted you pour the butter into the cookie crumbs and stir well.
Tip: don’t have a food processor? You can also crumble the Oreos by putting them in a plastic bag (close it good!) and hit them with a rolling pin.
Put a piece of baking paper on the bottom of the springform and pour the butter/cookie mixture in it. Spread it out equally. Use the back of a spoon to spread it out and press it well so it sticks together. Put in the fridge for 10 minutes so it can cool and harden.
Put the quark, whipped cream, sugar and Whip it in the mixing bowl. Use the mixer to mix it for 3 to 5 minutes until it starts to get firm.
Tip: for this recipe I used Whip it because it’s vegetarian and this way I could serve it to everybody. It works just as good as gelatin and you don’t taste any difference.
Chop the last 5 Oreos on the cutting board and put them into the quark/whippedcream mixture. Gently scoop through, don’t use the mixer.
Take the springform out of the fridge and pour the quarkmixture on it. Spread it out equally and again use the back of a spoon to smooth it out. Put the kwarktaart in the fridge for 2 hours so it can set.
