Description

The inspiration for this recipe came from the Allergy & Free From Show last week. I was discussing favourite free from recipes and my love of cheesecake with the guys at the Udi’s stand. They gave me a packet of their new gluten and dairy free oreo style cookies to so I could experiment with them as a cheesecake base – and this recipe is the result! The cherry choc chip oreo style cheesecake – all gluten and dairy free.

Enjoy!
