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