I guess a trend is emerging. Oreo Cookies. I love Oreo’s and think they make everything better.
Therefore, mini cheesecakes with an actual WHOLE Oreo crust.
These are not something you eat on a first date. Or at a work party. Or any party really.
I made these for a party. My brother-in-laws 30th Birthday bash. I guess I am a bit of a jerk for serving these at a party. But they are soooooo good and everyone loved them, so it really doesnt matter. They probably made for some awkward conversation/judgment.
You know why, right?
Because Oreo’s stick in your teeth and on your lips and tongue and they hold on for dear life.
I sometimes forget that you have to be careful not to smile or talk while eating anything Oreo. I am then reminded when I see someone make the mistake of opening wide and displaying a mouth of complete black.
Yikes. I guess as long as everyone partakes in the dessert eating, you won’t be the only one who looks like you were chowing down on some potting soil in the yard.
All that being said, I hope I have not scared you away from these amazing little cheesecakes. I don’t know why I said all those terrible things about eating Oreos…
Forget I said anything.
Just eat them. Enjoy them. And if you are on a first date, pretend you are a zombie. I would laugh if you did that! But please don’t blame me if they are grossed out and don’t answer your calls…
Shall we begin?
Bring 4 bricks of cream cheese up to room temperature (this pic is just 2)
Then whip it together
Add some sugar
Add some Vanilla
Add some sour cream.
Mix them in with a spoon, and lick the spoon to death.
Line cupcake tins with paper liners and put an entire Oreo in the bottom. I used regular and Double stuff. You can also do any of the different flavor Oreo’s (next time I will use peanut butter Oreo’s).
Thank you Mikey, for your perfect teeth and this beautiful bite!
Mikeys favorite dessert is Cheesecake. Therefore, he loves me a little bit more after trying these 🙂
Lastly, thanks to the phenomenal Amandeleine for this wonderful recipe. Check her out!
Recipe: Mini Oreo Cheesecakes
42 cream-filled sandwich cookies, such as Oreos, 30 left whole, and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 whole cookie in the bottom of each lined cup.
Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Gradually add sugar, and beat until combined. Beat in vanilla.
Drizzle in eggs, a bit at a time, beating to combine and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in sour cream and salt. Stir in chopped cookies by hand.
Divide batter evenly among cookie-lined cups, filling each almost to the top. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until filling is set, about 22 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate at least 3 hours (or up to overnight).
