28. Cookies and Cream Cheesecake

Vegan cheesecake is a great way to dispel those stereotypes about granola-munching wheatgrass-sipping vegan hippies. Look for Trader Joe’s brand chocolate sandwich cookies, Newman’s Own Organics cookies, or use plain, mint, or chocolate Oreos, which may not be healthy, but are absolutely vegan!

SERVES 6

14 cup soymilk

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 (8-ounce) container vegan cream cheese

1 (12-ounce) block silken tofu

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons vanilla

14 cup powdered sugar

14 cup maple syrup

14 cup oil

8–10 vegan chocolate sandwich cookies, crumbled

1 Vegan Cookie Pie Crust (see recipe in this chapter)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Whisk together the soy milk and cornstarch in a small bowl. Using a handheld or stand mixer, combine the soymilk with the cream cheese, tofu, lemon juice, vanilla, powdered sugar, and maple syrup and blend until completely smooth. Slowly add oil on high speed until combined.

3. Stir in crumbled cookies by hand and pour into prepared crust.

4. Bake 40–45 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then chill. Cheesecake will firm up more as it cools, so avoid the temptation to overbake.
