Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes with an Oreo Cookie Crust

Something that has always shocked me are the blog posts that receive the most traffic. Two of my top ones are the post about the adventure that Emily and I took to Satan’s Kingdom in MA and my recipe post about Mini Cheesecakes with an Oreo Crust. I love that people keep searching for those things and come to my blog that way. Unfortunately, with the cheesecake post the photos are awful. (must redo post and photos!)

Since the mini cheesecake post is such a hit I figured that making an autumnal version would be a hit for this time of year. At least I know it was well received with the contractors I work with. I brought dozen over for them (in addition to some peanut butter and jelly cookies) and I heard they went quickly at an afternoon meeting.

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes with an Oreo Cookie Crust

*makes 18*

Ingredients

  • 2 eight ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin purée (or cooked, mashed, drained fresh pumpkin)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 18 oreo cookies

Process

  1. Line 18 cups of 2 muffin tins with linens. Place 1 whole Oreo cookie at the bottom of the liner.
  2. Combine the softened cream cheese, eggs, sugar, pumpkin purée, vanilla extract, and spice. Beat until completely smooth. Divide evenly among the liners.
  3. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, or until the centers are just set. Cool completely before serving.

    WOW, how did I never think of something so delicious AND simple????? LOVE this!!!!!

    I tend to overthink things ;-)

    But I can think of so many ways to make this, flavor combinations, WOW!!!!! Thanks! :-)

  2. I need to make these for hubs sometime. I’ve meant to make something similar but whenever I buy oreos we manage to eat them before I can bake with them :)

  3. I love that you used whole Oreos as the crust! It seems like most recipes call for crushed ones. I wanna try these soon!

    There oughta be a special award for someone who uses whole Oreo cookies for a crust. Sounds yummlicious. I had deep fried Oreos at Coney Island this past summer. Amazing stuff.
    Awful glad I found you on the NaBloPoMo blogroll – happy posting & baking.
