Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

12 Oreos plus more for crumbling
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line muffin pans with paper liners or foil cups.
Split the cookies, keeping filling on one cookie. Place filling covered cookie in bake cups, filling side up. Set aside.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla till smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs just till well mixed. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into bake cups. At this point you can crush the remaining Oreos and sprinkle the fine crumbs over the cheesecake mixture, or you can break up the Oreo halves and stir them into the batter.
Bake, uncovered, in 325 degree F oven for about 25 minutes or till set. Cool in pan set on a rack. Cover and chill. Makes 12

These were pretty good! I liked the individual size of the cheesecake, as well as it is easy to serve. I made these for a Halloween party so I lined them with Halloween liners, but this recipe could easily be used for any holiday. It would be awesome with the holiday colored Oreos too!
