Oreo Cheesecakes from Hell or that other place.
I made these to-die-for Oreo Cheesecakes for a high tea today. I thought I’d share the recipe, because you ought to make them and then have a sugar high headache like I have now. Here are some more photos, they’re super quick and easy, using a cookie for the biscuit base saves loads of crushing-mixing-chilling time.
See? There’s the cookie.
I’ll share the recipe, as I adapted it a little, using less eggs and cream cheese, fewer cookies and made it all metric. Also, as my stick blender died, I mixed it all by hand. I have found using a fork to work up the cream cheese, alternating with a whisk makes a good smooth cheese filling, so don’t let not having a good mixer stop you! Sooo, adapted from the above link, here’s what I did…
Cookies ‘n’ Cream Mini-Cheesecakes
- two boxes of Oreo cookies, I used 20 for the cup cake bases, and chopped the rest to add to the filling
- 750gms cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
- 1 cup sour cream
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat oven to 140 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 cookie in the bottom of each lined cup.
- Beat cream cheese until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Gradually add sugar, and beat until combined. Beat in vanilla.
- Drizzle in eggs, a bit at a time, beating to combine and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in sour cream and salt. Stir in chopped cookies by hand.
- Divide batter evenly among cookie-lined cups, filling each almost to the top. Bake until filling is set, about 22 minutes (mine took about 30 minutes). I always let my baked cheesecakes cool in the now switched off oven once set, this seems to prevent the tops splitting. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or up to overnight).
Voila! I usually get all over the top with cheesecakes, sprinkling on flaked or grated chocolate, but ah, these are already unbelievable rich. You could crumble cookie bits on top if you bought extra cookies if you wanted to really go all out.
Do you need to see another photo?
Last one, now go make them!
