Cookies & Cream Cheesecake

Wanting to make Oreo cheesecake cupcakes, I searched the internet for recipes.  They all had sour cream in them and I did not want to run to the store for one ingredient.  I took this recipe and altered it.  

What you need:
Pam spray
18 Oreo cookies, crushed
2 tbsp butter, melted
3 pkg. Philadelphia Cream Cheese blocks
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs

Make it:
Preheat oven to 325. Spray cupcake pan with Pam spray.  Put Oreos into a large ziploc.  Crush them with a rolling pin until finely crushed.  Pour them into a measuring cup.  Put aside 1/2 cup of Oreo crumbs.  Melt 2 tbsp of butter into a small bowl.  Mix the 1 cup of Oreo crumbs into the butter.  Press the Oreo crumbs into the cupcake pan evenly.  
Beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low.  Then mix in the 1/2 cup of Oreo crumbs.  Scoop evenly into cupcake pan.  Bake on 325 for 20 minutes.  Let cool and then refrigerate.
