For my dad’s birthday, I wanted to make him something edible and fun. I was kind of short on time so I needed a recipe that would be pretty easy to whip up. Knowing that he loves cheesecake, I decided on a recipe for miniature Oreo cheesecakes. Surprisingly simple, these cheesecakes are paired with an Oreo on the bottom which serves as a ready made crust! The procedure required next to no preparation time and ending result was delicious!
*To ‘enhance’ the chocolatey flavor of the cheesecakes, I crushed about seven cookie wafers of the excess sandwich cookies and mixed them into the batter.
- 2 (250 g) packages Cream Cheese, softened
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 12 OREO Cookies (or any sandwich cookie of your choice)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each just until blended. Place 1 cookie in bottom of each of 12 cupcake liners. Fill with batter. Bake 20 minutes or until centers are almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours.
