Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes

I have to start by saying, I'm not a huge fan of cheesecake.  My husband, however, is.  Because of this, it's not something I typically make because he could never eat an entire cheesecake himself.  Well, he could but it wouldn't be good.....  But when cheesecake is coupled with something else delicious, such as oreo cookies, well then, that's a different story.  I'm in!

This recipe is easily halved or quartered.

makes 30 cheesecake cupcakes

42 Oreos, 30 left whole and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds (32 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 275°. Line standard muffin pans with liners. Place 1 whole cookie in the bottom of each liner.
Beat cream cheese at medium speed using an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar, beating until combined. With the mixer running, drizzle in eggs and vanilla. 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 before serving. Store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

  1. How many packages of Oreos will be needed? I have no idea how many are in a package of regular ones (since I always get the Double Stuff ones haha). These look like a great party treat!!! Thank you for sharing! :)


  2. Hi Staci! I've been waiting patiently for this recipe! Thanks for sharing! Sounds yummy! Blessings from Bama!

  3. Amber - I make 1/4 or 1/2 the batch because it's just 2 of us and I use almost 1 package of cookies so I believe if you made the full recipe you would need 2. It would say on the nutrition label how many are in the package.

    Felecia - I'm sorry it took so long to get it posted. Hope you enjoy it!!

  4. As a fan of both Oreos and cheesecake, I think this looks awesome!! I'm thinking it may be the perfect Easter treat.

  5. I have this recipe pinned, I've been meaning to try them! Waiting on an occasion so I don't eat them all myself though. :)

  6. We now that sounds like a very good combination. I like that it uses four eggs also. I am always looking for ways to use the plethora of eggs I get around here.

  7. I can not begin to tell you how happy my husband would be if I would make this for him! I do spoil him with what he likes, so I will get some Oreo's on the shopping list and surprise him with these soon :) Pinning!
