Yum! Finished in 4 bites. 🙂

This was my first batch of oreo cheesecake cups. I’ve adapted this recipe from a number of sources, cross-referring here and there to get the best mix. This is a really easy dessert to make – and yes I love making every bite-sized in this house so its 1) convenient to bring out to offer to other guinea pigs 2) easy to eat. 

Oreo Cheesecake Cups

(makes about 13 mini cupcake cups, more or less depending on how much oreo base you make)

12 oreo cookies, finely crushed 
1 8oz container cream cheese (no, you cannot use cottage cheese.)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk (optional, I did this recipe twice and this didn’t make much of a difference)

3 coarsely crumbled oreo cookies 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. 
  • Combine crushed cookies and butter in a medium bowl. 
  • Grease about 10 mini cupcake tins to begin with. How many cups you finally end up with will depend on how thick your cookie base is. 
  • Drop about 1/2 tablespoon of cookie mixture into tin and press in with back of a spoon. If you prefer a heartier crust, feel free to add more as crust remains soft after baking and will still be easy to eat.
  • Set aside. 
  • Cream the cream cheese and sugar until well combined in electric mixer. 
  • Add egg and milk until well combined as well. 
  • Stir in coarsely crumbled cookies. If you want a grey tone, crumble them more finely. (Pictured above)
  • Pour cheesecake mixture into tin almost to the very top. 
  • Optional step: Either sprinkle top of mixture with fine oreo crumbs
    Crumb version.

    OR quarter more oreo cookies and stick it on top of the mixture as decoration.

  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and cool at room temperature, then chill in fridge till ready to serve. (Best left for 2 to 3 hours at LEAST.)
  • Will still taste good (or even better!) up to 4 days later. 🙂

I love this recipe! Its relatively fuss-free and utterly delicious. Von said it tasted like Starbucks cheesecake. Not sure if thats a complement to me considering how many bad experiences I’ve had with Starbucks’ cakes (Singapore Starbucks, please QC!). But on the whole this is one dessert I really enjoy consuming myself. 🙂 
Rating: 4.5/5
Would I bake this again? Yes I will and I have! Its a really fun item if you want to bake for a party without going through too much trouble and still have something that tastes good enough for the occasion.
