Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes
2 250g Packages of Cream Cheese - Softened
1/2 cup Sugar
2 Lg. Eggs
12 Oreo Cookies
1 tsp Vanilla
Cupcake Cup Liners
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line your cupcake tin with the cupcake liners.
Separate the Oreo cookies - place the plain half of each cookie into the bottom of each liner. (Outside of the cookie facing downward.) Set aside the 12 halves with the cream.
In a medium bowl, add the sugar, eggs and vanilla to the softened cream cheese. Mix on low for 30 seconds with a hand mixer - then beat for 90 seconds on medium speed, until mixture is smooth.
Add the remaining halves of the cookies into the mixture and continue to blend until cookies are mixed into the batter.
***TIP*** Break the cookie halves into 4's for easier blending.
Pour mixture into the Cupcake Liners, place in to preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes - or until center of the cheesecakes have began to set.
Immediately remove Cheesecakes from the tin using a fork to scoop them out, and place on a tray. Refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours.
