Oreo Cookies Torte

Η συνταγή και στα ελληνικά στο τέλος της ανάρτησης!

From the 70’s and on, Greece started to export not only its fruits, vegetables, olive oil and other produce, but also young people who wanted to either study abroad or complete their studies at a university outside the Greek frontiers.

In this way, an interaction started among this country’s inhabitants and the cultures of the other European countries. Until then, the palette of Greek deserts consisted of traditional, purely Greek sweets such as mastic, spoon sweets, sweet pies or desserts that were brought by the Greek refugees who came from turkey such as baklava, kataifi, galaktoboureko and so on and so forth.

With this mingling of people this palette has started to get influences from other countries and in particular from the French desserts.

In Greece, we buy our desserts mainly from pastry shops that carry a variety of sweets mainly influenced by the French and the Italian ones. Of course they sell traditional Greek ones, but the majority of people prefer to buy the ones that are made according to French or Italian standards.

Several French and Italian pastry chefs visit our country, invited by companies that sell in bulk the ingredients to the pastry shops, to demonstrate their techniques and ways to prepare these types of sweets to local professionals.

Admittedly, French are by far the best pastry chefs in world followed by the Italians. Their sweets are elegant, light in texture, just rightly sweet and airy! As it was only natural, housewives were also influenced by this wave and they started creating tarts, éclairs, tortes, croissants, tiramisu, etc. When someone has his/her birthday or Name Day, we prepare a torte, that is, something that has a ganache on top and a thin layer of spongecake underneath. Contrary to the US, cakes are considered to be a simpler form of sweet that we make for everyday consumption. In special events, as the above mentioned ones, we prefer to make a torte as luscious as possible.

This dessert is influenced exactly by this notion and follows the trend that has started in the 70’s and continues to dominate the Greek pastry market.

It is very simple and very easy to make, yet it looks very elegant and luscious. I served it when some friends came over and everyone thought that it took me hours to make it. The truth is that I spent no more than 30 minutes to make it. Nevertheless, it needs about two hours in the fridge for the cream to stabilize.  So, if you want to make it, you should bear this in mind and have the time to let the cream become firm.

  7. If you are going to use it the next day put it in the fridge again covered with cling film.
  8. In a blender crumble the cookies finely.
  9. Take a bowl, add the cookies and the butter and with your hands mix them so they make small crumbles like the ones in cheesecake.
  10. Take a spring form pan with 25 cm / 10 in. diameter and throw the cookie crumbles.
  11. Pat them with your hands to make a crust that covers the bottom of the spring form just like you do in the cheesecake.

  13. Put again in the fridge until the time you will serve it.
  14. Five minutes before serving time take the torte out of the fridge.

Ingredients/ Συστατικά
Για το Ganache
  • 400 γρ. κουβερτούρα 60% κακάο
  • 240 γρ. γάλα
  • 400 ml κρέμα γάλακτος 35% λιπαρά
  • 2 κ.γ. ζάχαρη άχνη

  • 2 κ.σ. λιωμένο βούτυρο ή μαργαρίνη
Για τη Διακόσμηση
  • 1 πακέτο μπισκότα OREO
  • Σιρόπι καραμέλας για παγωτά
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
Για το Ganache
  1. Βράστε το γάλα.
  2. Σε ένα γυάλινο μπολ τοποθετήστε τη σοκολάτα κομμένη σε κομματάκια και ρίξτε το ζεστό γάλα.
  3. Ανακατέψτε να λιώσει η σοκολάτα τελείως και βάλτε στην άκρη.
  4. Στο μπολ του μίξερ σας ρίξτε την κρέμα γάλακτος και τη ζάχαρη άχνη και χτυπήστε με το σύρμα μέχρι να πήξει και να έχει την υφή του γιαουρτιού.
  5. Σιγά-σιγά, προσθέστε τη λιωμένη σοκολάτα στην κρέμα γάλακτος και ανακατέψτε απαλά με μια σπάτουλα να ενσωματωθούν.
  6. Αν θα τη χρησιμοποιήσετε αμέσως βάλτε τη στην κατάψυξη για 1 ώρα ή στο ψυγείο για δύο ώρες σκεπασμένη με μία μεμβράνη.
  7. Αν σκοπεύετε να τη χρησιμοποιήσετε την επόμενη μέρα βάλτε τη σκεπασμένη στο ψυγείο.
  8. Σε ένα μπλέντερ θρυμματίστε τα μπισκότα.
  9. Πάρτε ένα μπολ, προσθέτουμε τα μπισκότα και το βούτυρο και με τα χέρια σας αναμείξτε έτσι ώστε να γίνουν μικρά θρύψαλα, όπως στο cheesecake.
  10. Πάρτε ένα ταψί με αποσπώμενα πλαινά και με διάμετρο 25 cm και ρίξτε το μπισκότο.
  11. Πατήστε με τα χέρια σας να κάνει ένα ομοιόμορφο στρώμα που θα καλύψει το κάτω μέρος του ταψιού, όπως ακριβώς κάνετε στο cheesecake.
  12. Βγάλτε το ganache έξω από το ψυγείο και απλώστε το πάνω από τη βάση.
  13. Βάλτε ξανά στο ψυγείο μέχρι την ώρα που θα σερβίρετε.
  14. Πέντε λεπτά πριν από το σερβίρισμα βγάλτε την τούρτα έξω από το ψυγείο.
  15. Αφαιρέστε το δαχτυλίδι που καλύπτει τις πλευρές του ταψιού.
  16. Θρυμματίστε τα μπισκότα Oreo και απλώστε τα στην κορυφή έτσι ώστε να καλύπτει ολόκληρη την επιφάνεια του γλυκού.
  17. Ρίξτε από πάνω το σιρόπι καραμέλας ή σοκολάτας, το ίδιο που χρησιμοποιείτε για το παγωτό σας.
  18. Είναι έτοιμη για σερβίρισμα.
