It’s hard to resist anything “mini”. For one thing, they’re so darn cute. For another thing, since they’re so small, you can technically eat a lot of them without worrying about your love handles. And it’s no different for these Mini Oreo Cheesecakes. So, stick around to learn how you can make a batch or two for yourself.
Let’s first start out by saying that these Mini Oreo Cheesecakes are a Pinterest favorite, with over 200K pins. So, it’s safe to say you won’t be disappointed with these adorable little desserts.
The two-ingredient crust – made with only crushed Oreos and butter – makes a tasty foundation for the cheesecake. All you do is crush 12 Oreos and mix with melted butter before pressing a small crust into the bottom of a mini cheesecake pan.
You can bake these crusts and set them aside while you make the cheesecake filling. All you’ll need is some cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, vanilla extract and one egg. Just be sure these ingredients are at room temperate for a nice, smooth filing.
Then, top your pre-baked Oreo crusts with the cheesecake filling before baking them in the oven. You’ll need about an hour for them to get to room temperature, and you can even chill them in the refrigerator if you like to serve them cold.
And if you want to add a touch of elegant decadence, you can whirl up some homemade whipped cream to top them off before serving them. Bon appetite!
