Strawberry Lush Cake
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 18 Golden Oreos
- 3 tablespoons butter melted
- 2 (8 ounce boxes) cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon orange extract
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 4 cups strawberries hulled (1 1/2 cups chopped and 2 1/2 cups sliced)
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Spray 8 x 11 inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Pulse oreos in food processor until crumbed. Combine with melted butter. Press into casserole dish evenly and place in freezer.
- In stand mixer combine cream cheese, sugar and orange extract. Mix on medium high until well combined and creamy; scraping the sides. Fold in sour cream and chopped strawberries. Evenly spread over the cookie crust. Freeze for 1 hour.
- Add sliced strawberries evenly over dessert and place back in freezer while you make the whipped cream.
- Add whipping cream & powdered sugar to mixing bowl. Beat just until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over dessert. Serve immediately.
When whipping cream it is helpful to put your mixing bowl and beater in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to making. You can make this in a 9 x 13 but I would increase the Oreo cookies to 25 with 4 tablespoons of butter and add 3 cups of sliced strawberries.

I would love a slice of the Strawberry Lush Cake for dessert! Such an amazing treat!
Looks SO good! Excited to try this.
I love anything strawberry and this looks delicious! I am so excited to try it out!
Can I use a hand mixer for the Oreos instead of food processor? Don’t have processor
Just load them in a Ziploc storage bag and break them up with a rubber mallet or rolling pin.
I will definitely try this recipe.
Thanks for sharing-))
Could a Graham cracker crust be substituted instead of the cookies?
Yes that would be delicious as well! Enjoy!!
I made this and took it to work today. Everyone totally loved it. I thought it was super great and have had two pieces so far 🙂 Thanks so much for the delicious recipe Beth. I am going to try your banana cake real soon.
You are most welcome Cindy! I am so glad that everyone liked it! So yummy!
can you use any other fruit –im allergic to strawberries— raspberries or black caps
Yes you can. Sounds like a plan!!
Do you take out the cream of the Golden Oreos ? Cookies
No please leave the cream in the cookies.
Recipe doesn’t say whether you remove the cream centers from the Oreos. If so, could you use those Pepperidge Farms Chessman cookies instead? I love the flavor of those.
You do not remove the cream filling. You could try it with the Chessman cookies. If it seems too dry to press together add 1-2 tablespoons more butter.
OK, I guess it would be like making a graham cracker crust but with the cookies instead. Will try that, thanks!
Can you use frozen berries ?
I do not recommend it because the added moisture might make the crust soggy. Sorry!!
Hi! I can not find sour cream in my place. Is there a way to make sour cream at home or substitute for this? Thank you. Really want to try this. Looks so yummy.
You can substitute plain Greek yogurt! 😉
I’ll be making this for a family get together, could this be made a head of time and put in freezer?
I would not freeze after putting on the whipped cream. You could make this up to the whipped cream part and store tightly covered in the freezer. Remove and add the whipped cream before leaving for the party. Love a good party!
thanks I will be making this for sure!
Does it refrigerate well? I would like to make it in the morning and serve it for guests in evening
Yes it does refrigerate well. Sounds like a plan! 🙂
Could you use blueberries instead
Yes indeed you could. I love blueberries!!!
I have some pecan sandies..thinking of using them for the crust. Has anyone else tried this idea. Recipe sounds very good
My Mother used to make a dessert that actually called for Pecan Sandies, so I say yes.
Sounds like a great plan. 😉
I don’t have orange extract, and I likely won’t purchase any. How about orange zest instead?
Yeah I think that might work. Let us know!
I have made this up to the cream cheese, sour cream strawberry mixture….in freezer just now. Can I wait until tomorrow to add last layer of whipped cream, strawberry mixture…right before serving?
It already smells delicious!
Yes you can wait. I would cover real good in the freezer. Take out while you are making the whipped cream since you will have it in the freezer all night. Add the strawberries and the whipped cream and serve! 🙂
Thank you…I did cover….I will let you know what my friends and I think!
Sounds great. Let me know what you think Mary!
It was a huge hit! Refreshing, light , and yummy!
Oh so glad it was a hit. You are getting my Friday off to a great start! 🙂
This sounds delicious & my Granddaughter loves strawberries. I do not have a stand up mixer only a good portable one – can this be used for the cream cheese mixing step??
Yes indeed you can!! 🙂
I made this for a 4th July Family party. wow was it good! I ate more than I should have but it was Love at first bite.
That is too sweet. Thank you so much. LOVE the compliments so much!!
Can you substitute vanilla extract for the orange?
Yes of course you can. It will give you a little bit of a different flavor but still delish!!
Sorry that was to have said *try instead of fry….lol.
Can you use regular whipped cream that’s already prepared instead of the whipping cream? …and if so….do you still add the powered sugar? Thanks for the recipe…always love to fry things made with strawberries.
Sure you can use prepared whipped cream and skip the powdered sugar. I knew what you meant. 🙂
Do you mean freeze in freezer or should you have used refrigerator. Didn’t quite understand freezing the fresh berries. Do you make day before or few hrs before serving. Sounds good.
You should just place in freezer just in the intervals that are called for. That is to help freeze the layers to make the different layers easier to spread. When complete it should be stored in the refrigerator. Please let me know if you need more clarification. Happy cooking!
How do you store the leftovers, in the fridge or freezer?
Fridge! Sorry about the delay!
Made this last summer! It was delish. It would be good with a vanilla wafer or shortbread crust too. Definitely worth making again.
Thank you! Yes it would be!
