Last week I mentioned that I didn’t like cheesecake when I was little. I probably thought there was actual cheese inside and I didn’t like cheese, which is a shocker because I thought all kids LOVED cheese.

I am so glad there isn’t real cheese inside cheesecake and I am so glad that I actually like cheesecake now.

Actually I like cheesecake so much I ate an entire 8 piece cheesecake by myself in the summer. Granted, it took like 3 weeks. And I think I might have shared one slice with Ryan. But it was the kind of cheesecake you keep in the freezer (so dangerous) because you can pull out a piece whenever the craving hits.

I’ve also learned cheesecake is the only dessert I can’t say no to. I’ll pass on ice cream, brownies, cookies or pie if I’m full, but there is ALWAYS room for a bite of cheesecake.

Although, I am partial to having chocolate in my cheesecake so if you offer me a fruit cheesecake, I’ll probably ask for chocolate sauce :)

Making individual cheesecakes in a muffin pan is an awesome way to get all of that delicious cheesecake flavor without the time commitment and water bath that larger cheesecakes require. Plus when you make mini cheesecakes you don’t have to worry about your cheesecake cracking or sinking in the center – thumbs up!!

These mini oreo cheesecakes only call for 7 ingredients! Oreo crumbs and butter for the crust and cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, and oreos pieces for the cheesecake batter.

The time breakdown is – 5 minutes to prep crust, 5 minutes to bake crust, 5 minutes to prep cheesecake, 15 minutes to bake cheesecake, then at least 2 hours to refrigerate the cheesecake before serving.

Waiting is the hardest part, right?!

  • 1 and 1/2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, added one at a time
  • 1/4 cup oreo crumbs plus 4-5 whole oreos broken into larger pieces (just not crumbs)

Directions:

Crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  2. Line a regular sized muffin pan with 12 muffin liners.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the oreo crumbs and melted butter until it resembles coarse sand.
  4. Put 1-2 tbsp of oreo crumbs in each muffin cup.
  5. Use a 1/3 cup (or similar) to press the oreo crumbs down firmly into the pan.
  6. Bake the crust for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool while prepping the cheesecake.

Cheesecake

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth, 2-3 minutes.
  2. Beat in the sugar and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  4. Then add the oreos crumbs and larger oreo pieces, mix with a spatula.
  5. Place a little more than 2 tbsp of cheesecake batter in each muffin cup.
  6. Top the cheesecakes with additional oreo crumbs or larger oreo pieces if desired.
  7. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the center of the cheesecake is only slightly jiggly.
  8. Allow the cheesecakes to cool to room temperature then place them in the fridge for at least 2 hours to chill before serving. If refrigerating overnight, loosely cover the cheesecakes in plastic wrap.

  1. These cheesecakes look seriously incredible- and perfectly portioned!

  2. These look divine! How well does this recipe double? If I double all the ingredients would it work out well? 

    • Hi Herra! Yep, it should work well, you’ll get about twice as many cheesecakes!

  3. Can these be frozen? I would love to make a huge batch, then freeze to have when craving them. Or when my 2 brothers beg me to make a cheesecake lol

    • Hi Josie! I am not entirely sure as I have not frozen mini cheesecakes before. You could try googling that to see!

    • have you tried feezing these yet? I would like to make them early and freeze them for a couple days before a party :)

      thanks!

  4. How many is this supposed to make?
    I doubled checked all my measurements and still had alot left over.

  5. SO delicious, but I had so many crumbs left over. I crumbled the 2 cups in a mini food processor and added the 4 tbsp of butter. After 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp in each cup I had almost a cup of leftover crumb. Perfect amount of cheesecake filling as per the recipe for 12, however.

  6. These look delicious ! Beautifully executed – I absolutely love mini cheesecakes! Here’s a little hint if you’re feeling lazy, or might be short on time – one step you can skip over is making the crust – simply drop a whole Oreo into each cupcake liner.
    If you’re in the middle of making these, and find you’re short on Oreos (ummmm…no, that’s NEVER happened to me, why do you ask??) you can garnish with mini semi sweet baking chips, too.
    Love the photos!

  7. When you say Oreo crumbs, does that mean just the cookies and not the cream? Or do I crumb them with the cream too?

  8. Hi,

    what is the size of the liners? is this 4oz?
    also I believe this recipe is also applicable in smaller size (bite size 3/4oz), its just that I need to adjust the baking time and also the portion of crust 

  9. The amount of ads and pop-ups on your blog make it completely unbearable to read anything. It is very annoying.

    • Hi Keith, I am providing free recipes for you and need to pay for hosting, site design and maintenance, ingredients, and all the work I put into recipe development, photography, writing and promoting the post. When you consider all of that, I hope you can understand why I run ads on my blog.

  10. Hey
    I made these last night. They are awesome!! They are soooo light and fluffy ad chock full if oreo. I did tweak the recipe a bit tho. Instead of a crumb crust i dropped one oreo into the liner. After that i popped the filling in. Also instead of chopping all the oreos up and mixing em in i broke each oreo into 4 pieces, then after putting the cheesecake batter in the liner i stuck in about 3-4 of the pieces depending on their size. I had to do that tho cuz i needed to yeild 72 cupcakes and 1/2 needed to be red velvet oreo and i was short on time. I also added frostings to mine to give em an extra pop! My cousin made them mostly from scratch. One was a whipped chocolae fudge cream cheese frosting. The other was a whipped pink fudge velvet cream cheese frosting.

  11. I honestly can say these were a hit, with my family. I did have left over ingredients. So I made extra.

  12. im deff going to try with my little girls

  13. This recipe is so light and perfectly sweet (not too sweet)! I got many compliments at the party. Thank you for the recipe!

  14. These are so pretty and most important lip smacking good! Your recipes are very easy to make! Thank you for sharing with us! Merry Christmas!

  15. Hi Beth! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe, making these all the way over in the Netherlands ;)
    I was just wondering how big the cups you use are? Or how much weight of flour/sugar one cup translates to?
    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi there! 1 cup is a standard US measurement. You can probably use google to see how to convert the measurement into what you need.

  16. I used a mini cupcake pan and put 1 tbsp of crust in each liner. I used the top of a wine bottle to smash it down and then put as much cheesecake goo would fit to fill. I was left with more than half the filling leftover. Math is hard. I will have to make more cheesecakes. They’re in the oven as I type.

  17. My electric mixer just broke ughh. Do you think I can mix the cream cheess by hand??

  18. Made these for my fiancé and best friend (both HUGE oreo fiends). They didn’t last long and are literally begging me for more! Thank you for the amazing recipe!

  19. I’m gonna try these as soon as possible! I’ve never made a cheesecake so I hope it’s going to go well!

  20. Yes, please!! These look fantastic!!

  21. when u say sugar u do mean regular sugar correct ?
