Sour Cream Oreo Cheesecake Bites Recipe
- 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.)
