Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes

Oreo cheesecake = YUM! These little cupcakes are perfect because they’re cheesecake with Oreo chunks in them and even an extra Oreo at the bottom. I love that you can actually see the Oreo at the bottom through these cupcake liners.

This recipe comes from Martha Stewart’s cupcake cookbook and it doesn’t disappoint. These were a big hit which is no surprise. I left my chunks fairly large in the cheesecake batter because that’s how I roll. Feel free to chop yours up smaller if you want. (Sorry for the lack of photos, these were so good we started gobbling them up as soon as they were chilled).

Yield: 30

Ingredients:

42 cream-filled sandwich cookies, such as Oreos, 30 left whole, and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
Pinch of salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 whole cookie in the bottom of each lined cup.

With an electric mixer on medium high speed, 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, rotating pan halfway through, until filling is set, about 22 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). Remove from tins just before serving.

    I’ll have to try adding sprinkles to cupcake batter. I love the patriotic colors! I made something for the inauguration too!
