  • Beat cream cheese, eggs, and sugar together in a bowl until smooth.

  • Put 1 cookie into the bottom of each paper liner. Spoon the cream cheese mixture atop the cookies.

  • Bake in preheated oven until nearly set in the middle, about 15 minutes.

  • Move tins to a wire rack to cool slightly before refrigerating until the cheesecake layer sets firmly, about 3 hours.

Cooks' Note:

To make a holiday version, add 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract, a few drops of red or green food coloring, and 2 or 3 crushed candy canes to the cream cheese mixture. Use candy cane Oreo(R) or peppermint wafers for the cookie base. Sprinkle finished cheesecake with more crushed candy cane or holiday sprinkles.

I make this in regular sized muffin tins with mini chocolate chips added to the cheesecake. Best to beat the cream cheese first, until it gets really light and creamy, then add other ingredients. This really makes a huge difference in the outcome. Read More

I added 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla and I piped it into the mini cupcake tins lined with papers. I tried spooning it in, very messy. I don't have a piping bag either, I used a ziplock with a hole in the corner. Read More

I made this with regular sized Oreos and cupcake liners, not the minis, and added a 1/2 tsp of vanilla. This was simple to make and is a family favorite. Next time I will add a small amount of chocolate chips. Read More

I made the recipe as is, and they turned out ok. I think the cheesecake part needs a little something more. Maybe some crushed cookies, maybe a little vanilla? Otherwise, they taste good and kids will love them. Read More

I used this recipe twice once followed and did the Oreo. But this time I used it for a whole cake. It had to stay in the oven a little longer but it turned out great. Didn't change the recipe at all. I will definitely use this again. Read More

These turned out very well. Perhaps my idea of a "mini-muffin cup" is different than other people's but an Oreo won't fit into one of what I consider to be "mini". I crushed the Oreos and put them crumbs in the bottom and it worked just fine though. Other than cutting the recipe in half I made no other changes and these were great! What a lifesaver! My daughter wanted cherry cheesecake and Oreo cheesecake for her birthday tomorrow. I made each of those. The Oreo isn't setting up and a fridge avalanche destroyed the cherry one. So I hurried and whipped up some of these and everyone can just add Oreos or cherries as they see fit. Read More
