Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes

These were easy to make and took little prep time. The crust/base of these little cheesecakes consist of an actual, whole Oreo cookie. Leaving the cookie intact provides a solid base that gets soft as it bakes and chilled. Additional chopped Oreos get mixed into the cheesecake batter along with sour cream, which adds a a bit of tanginess to the sweetness of the cheesecake batter. These treats are great for parties or a large crowd due to its individual serving size. These treats are rich and creamy.

42 cream-filled sandwich cookies, such as Oreos, 30 left whole, and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds (32-oz) cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
Pinch of salt

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners.
2. Place 1 whole cookie in the bottom of each lined cup.
3. With an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat cream cheese until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
4. Gradually add sugar, and beat until combined.
5. Beat in vanilla.
6. Drizzle in eggs, a bit at a time, beating to combine and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
7. Beat in sour cream and salt.
8. Stir in chopped cookies by hand.
9. 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.
10. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). Remove from tins just before serving.

Yield: 30 cheesecakes
