Gourmet Cupcakes: Oreo Cheesecake Bites Recipe

By: Izzy
These mini cheesecake bites are creamy and smooth mini cheesecakes with Oreo crust at the bottom. I’ve included some easy tips for you to make the best bite-size Oreo cheesecake cupcakes. A perfect dessert at any party!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Total: 35 minutes
Servings: 16 mini cheesecakes


  • 22 Oreo cookies, Chop 6 of them into small pieces
  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, or plain Greek yogurt


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. (Make sure your oven temperature is accurate, as a higher temp can cause the cheesecake to crack.)
  • Place cupcake paper liners into a muffin tin pan. Add one Oreo cookie into each paper cup. Set aside.
  • Add softened cream cheese and sugar to a medium mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed using a hand mixer.
  • Then add vanilla and eggs. Mixing well until smooth without lumps.
  • Add sour cream, mix until combined. Tap bowl against your countertop a few times to release any large air bubbles.
  • Stir in chopped cookies, and mix generally using a spatula. (Be careful not to crush oreos into smaller crumbs.)
  • Spoon the batter on top of the oreo, filling each to almost the top. Note that cheesecake won’t rise as much as a regular cupcake.
  • Place in the lower third of the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes until the edges just start to turn brown. Note that classic cheesecake is supposed to look pale, so you’re not looking for golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to cooling racks.
  • Chill in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight. Serve and enjoy! (You can store them in the fridge for up to 5 days.)
