Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

I needed a little amuse-bouche for my friends who were coming over to learn the basics of baking cheesecakes.  These mini Oreo cheesecakes came together quickly, especially when you use an Oreo instead of a cookie crumb crust.  I made some of both versions.

My taste testers were split on which they preferred as I made some with the Oreo as a crust and some with cookie crumbs as the crust. The Oreo fans liked the cookies and cream combo and the cookie crust fans enjoyed the more prevalent chocolate taste from the ground cookies.  You can’t go wrong with either version.

If you’d like a more traditional cheesecake recipe, these Mini Vanilla Bean Cheesecakes are phenomenal!

Whether you make this mini cheesecake recipe for after school snacks, a dessert buffet, or a gift for friends or neighbors, they are definitely a tasty treat. Who doesn’t love having their own personal dessert? Plus, they’re small enough that you can go back for seconds.

If you’re in a hurry, using a whole Oreo as the crust instead of mixing up chocolate cookie crumbs and butter and pressing them into a muffin tin is a super easy alternative. My husband loves any excuse I have to keep Oreos in the house!
