I immediately thought, cheesecake! Who doesn't like cheesecake? Well, actually, I don't, BUT most people do, so I figured cheesecake would be a good option.When I found a recipe on Kraft's website for mini oreo cheesecakes I knew I found a delicious option, and I have to say an easy one too! For someone who isn't a cheesecake fan, I surprisingly made these, pensively tried one out, and fell in love. I have to say it may be the Oreos (another sweet treat I like). I promise I don't have THAT big of a sweet tooth.
With an entire Oreo cookie as the base of these mini cheesecakes, and a creamy filling, these were a hit at the game night, right along with Cards Against Humanity. If you haven't played this game before, try it out, it definitely gives a good laugh or two and will make for a good night, just like these mini Oreo cheesecakes...so try them out too!
Mini Oreo Cheesecakes - Makes 18
8 Oreos chopped up (to top the cheesecakes)
1 1/2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
18 cupcake liners
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place cupcake liners in muffin tin. I used two muffin tin trays to make 18 mini cheesecakes. Place 1 cookie in each cupcake liner.
Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Lightly beat egg in a bowl and add to the cream cheese and sugar mixture. Blend together. Then add salt, vanilla and sour cream. Beat together.
Spoon mixture on top of each oreo in each cupcake liner about 2/3 of the way up the cupcake liner. Bake for 20 minutes or until centers are almost set. Cool and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Once cooled remove the cupcake liners and place on a serving dish.
