A video from ‘Instagram famous’ baker Eloise Head showing viewers how to make Oreo cheesecake cookies from five ingredients has gone viral on social media.
The 26-year-old, who is the founder of FitWaffle Kitchen, an Instagram page dedicated to decadent desserts that take just a few minutes to prepare, has amassed almost 25,000 likes on the clip since it was shared on October 17.
In it, the self-taught chef from London whips up a batch of the indulgent biscuits from butter, cream cheese, granulated sugar, plain flour and a pack of the iconic chocolate biscuits.
Ms Head, who shot to online stardom when a baking craze swept the globe during the first COVID lockdown, makes the cookies by hand without an electric mixer and says they are easy enough for anyone to do the same – even baking beginners.

‘If you love Oreos you need to try these – you don’t even need eggs,’ she wrote in the caption.
To make the cookie dough, Ms Head whisks 115 grams of unsalted butter with 115 grams of cream cheese until the texture becomes light and fluffy.
Then she adds 200 grams of sugar followed by 120 grams of flour in thirds, gently folding in until just combined.
Next, Ms Head mixes broken Oreos into the dough before leaving the mixture to set in the fridge for roughly one hour.
