Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

Today I found two boxes of cream cheese in the back of the fridge. They were past their best-by date so I needed to use them soon. A large cheesecake usually denotes a special occasion, but mini bouts of specialness are sometimes just as important. Since I also had a package of Spring Oreos that I had grabbed from the Easter clearance section a few weeks back, I knew just what to make – Mini Oreo Cheesecakes would fit the bill perfectly without much fuss or other ingredients.

These little Mini Oreo Cheesecakes turned out to be just what I needed!

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

The instructions for these mini Oreo Cheesecakes are just as simple as the ingredients:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Place cupcake liners into your muffin pan.
  3. Place an Oreo into each liner.
  4. Mix the Cream Cheese, Sugar and Vanilla on medium speed of your mixer.
  5. Add the Eggs and mix well.
  6. Pour the mixture on top of the Oreos to 3/4 full. Mixture will be thick.
  7. Bake @ 325°F for about 20 minutes or until you see the first little bit of browning on top of a single muffin.

The cheesecake will be soft and moist as will the Oreo. It’s sort of like the cookie has been dipped in milk, the texture totally compliments the cheesecake and does not fight it at all. This recipe makes a dozen cupcakes.

Store these mini oreo cheesecakes (if any are left!) covered in the refrigerator. They are best if eaten within 2-3 days. After that time, the waxy taste of the oreo filling begins to take over the muffin.
