Firstly, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius and line a 10 inch (25cm) springform pan with two layers of cling film which is long enough to hang over the sides. 

Take your Gookie Dough and press it evenly into a circle along the bottom of the pan and then fold the cling film over the top. Unclasp the pan and freeze the cookie dough disk. Then reclasp the pan and spray the bottom with cooking spray. Pour in your prepared brownie batter.

Spray the bottom and sides of a 5 inch (12cm) or deeper 8-inch wide cake tin and press the greased cake tin into the brownie mix until the matter reaches halfway up the sides of the springform pan. Bake for around 30 minutes then chill for about five. 

Now reduce the oven temperature to 150 degrees Celsius. In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, vanilla, sugar and your egg until there are no lumps and a smooth batter has formed. 

While the brownie is still warm, rotate and press down on the inner cake pan using oven gloves to push the cooked brownie even more up the sides of the springform pan into an even ring. Chill for 30 minutes. 

Arrange a single layer of the Oreos roughly 14-15 on the bottom of the brownie shell as close together as possible. Por the cheesecake mixture on top of the cookies and spread evenly. Tap the pan to release any air bubbles and bake for about 40 minutes until the cheesecake is slightly bouncy in the centre. Then freeze until the top of the cheesecake is slightly firm. 

Now add another layer of Oreos on top of the cheesecake layer and place the frozen Gookie Dough disk on top. Bake for 15 minutes. When out of the oven, chill completely, slice and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and an extra Oreo for decoration! 

Tah-Dah! Super rich dessert with a gorgeous crunch of Oreos. Complete dessert GOALS! (Recipe from Tasty).
