  1. These little cheesecakes were fantastic. I was looking for something that my kids could help make because they seem interested in cooking right now. This was perfect. Very easy and sooooo delicious. Had a wonderful creamy texture and the oreo at the bottom made a great crust. Thanks for posting this recipe.
  2. This was soo quick and easy, besides that, they were very nice. I had some friends over for dinner, I made a meal for which I normally serve fruit as dessert, but knowing they are dessert freaks this seemed a good solution. I split the recipe in three, easy when you look at the ingredients. Had 5 mini cheese cakes which everbody loved! I crushed the Oreo's and I added some vanilla extract.
  3. I made these for dessert for a corn beef and cabbage supper at my church. In keeping with the St Patrick's Day theme, I used the mint Oreo cookies (crushed) and used green food coloring in the whipped cream for the topping. Personally I found these to be a little too sweet for my taste but they were decorative enough for a large crowd.
  4. Delicious. I made some modifications. (I didn't have enough oreos for 24 cupcakes...I only had 6 so I just made one third of the recipe instead). Instead of using the whole oreo sandwich at the bottom, I just separated each oreo, scraped the cream off, and used each oreo half in the bottom of the cupcake liners(ended up getting 8 cupckaes that way). With the remaining oreos (about 4 oreos), I crushed them and mixed them into the cream cheese mixture. I also added vanilla into the cream cheese mixture. I spooned about a tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into each cupcake liner and baked for 17 minutes. It was fantastic. I gave it 4 stars because it definitely needs the vanilla. To save some time, there's no need to crush the oreos to make the bottom crust, after baking, the oreo at the bottom of the cupcake liner softens up quite nicely, and is delicious (it doesn't stay crunchy at all). Next time I will make this using the full recipe. Highly recommended.
  5. Thanks, Stacylu, for a great recipe!! These were a breeze to make. I made them for a sunday afternoon ladies get-together and everyone thought they looked and tasted great. I did'nt use the whipped cream but drizzled a little chocolate over the cream cheese mixture. They looked very professional. The only 'problem' I had if you could call it that, was I got about 36 cheesecakes, instead of 24. Thanks again. I'll be making these again.


  1. I used dulce de leche cookies instead of oreo's with a graham cracker crust. I crushed half of the pack of cookies and put inside of the batter. I did use 1 cup of brown sugar and a 1/4 cup of white sugar.
  2. I made these twice so far, the first time they turned out quite badly since a) I was unaware what 'softened' really meant (Microwave cheese in 2 * 30 sec intervals) and b) The whole oreo as a base proved to be a bit overpowering if you dont add enough cream cheese batter. However I have made them again, this time softening the cheese and using a split oreo as a base and they turned out quite good, very fast and easy to make, good for parties :) Update: I made them for a third time, now substituting half of cream cheese for mascapone cheese .. a real winner :)
