RECIPE: Oreo cheesecakes
I hosted a tea party a few weeks ago and made these as one of the desserts. They're better made a day ahead of time so the cookies can soften up a little bit.
OREO COOKIE CHEESECAKES Â makes 16
20 Oreo cookies
16 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
Dash of salt
2 Tbs. flour
3/4 cup sour cream
3 Tbs. sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 16 muffin cups with paper liners. Separate 16 cookies in two, leaving the OreoÂs cream filling on each cookie half and placing any half into each cup liner, filling side up. Make crumbs out of the 4 whole cookies and set aside.
In bowl of electric mixer, combine cream cheese, sugar, salt, flour and eggs. Beat for 4 minutes. Place one tablespoon of the mixture on top of each cookie half. Sprinkle the cookie crumbs on top and add the remaining cream cheese mixture on top of the crumbs. Bake for 20 minutes; remove from oven.
Combine the sour cream and sugar. Spread each cake with the mixture. Return to the oven for 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and place remaining cookie halves on top of each cheesecake, filling side down. Cool and then store in the refrigerator. Serve chilled.
