lovely little recipe

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

When I first heard of this recipe I knew it was the perfect recipe for my boyfriends birthday treat. It combined two of his favorite things, cheesecakes and Oreos. It was my first attempt at cheesecake anything but it was so easy, and declicous!

Cheesecake Ingredients:
Makes 24
3 Packages - 8 oz Each of Cream Cheese, Softened 
(softened means to leave it out for an hour or so)
24 Oreo Cookies
8-12 Additional Cookies, Chopped
(one pack of Oreos is enough for this recipe but if you are planning on doubling you will need more)
3 Eggs
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Don't forget cupcake liners!

-Preheat Oven to 350*
-Place a single Oreo in each cupcake liner.
-You will also want to clear space in the refrigerator for your 
cheesecakes when they come out of the oven.

-Place your additional Oreo's (I used 12) into a plastic baggy and crumble them up.

-Mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together until well blended. 
-Add in eggs one at a time. Mix well.
(I highly recommend using an electric mixer for this recipe)
-Add in your Oreo crumbles.

-Using a tablespoon, spoon the cheesecake mixture into your Oreo cups.
-Bake them at 350* for 15-20 minutes.

-Let your cheesecakes cool on the counter for bout 10 minutes.
-Place cheesecakes in fridge for at least one hour.

Topping Ingredients:
Whip Cream
Mini Oreo's
(you can also use Oreo crumbles or chocolate drizzle)

To present mine, I took my cheesecakes out of the wrappers.
I would possibly change how hard the Oreo crust at the bottom is. 
Maybe adding a teaspoon of milk onto each Oreo before the mixture goes on top.
I will say that a few days later the bottom was much softer. 

Overall super duper easy to make and yummy!

I hope you lovelies enjoy!
