Saturday Night Snacks

February 21, 2012

Ok folks, it’s Saturday night and yes, I’m watching this week’s 30 Rock and drinking wine but I did do something productive today, I swear. Would you like to know what? Believe me, you do.

Via tastespotting, I happened across this little gem.

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes.

Oh.My.God.

Oreos?

Cheesecake?

You heard me.

These were so easy to make, I mixed up the batter while enjoying a movie in the living room, and they cook in under a half hour.

I think all I really have left to say is…you’re welcome. Oh, and the recipe.

MINI OREO CHEESECAKES
printable recipe
16 ounces cream cheese
2/3 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup sour cream
1 package regular size Oreo cookies
1 package mini Oreo cookies (chop about 1 cup to use in batter, the rest are garnish on top)

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Place one full size Oreo cookie in the bottom of every mini cheesecake cup. This will serve as the “crust” of the cookie.

Beat the cream cheese for several minutes until it is smooth and creamy.

Add the sugar and salt. Add eggs one at a time until incorporated.

Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice. Fold in the sour cream and chopped Oreo cookies and mix until combined.

Pour the mixture into the prepared cups and bake for 22-25 minutes (the tops should spring back slightly when touched).

WHIPPING CREAM TOPPING
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/8 tsp. unflavored gelatin
2 tsp. corn starch
2 tbsp. instant vanilla pudding mix

Combine all ingredients and beat for several minutes until the cream thickens and soft peaks form. Pipe onto tops of cheesecakes and garnish with a mini Oreo.

 

I didn’t make the whipped topping, but upon trying them, I think something moist and light to top it off would only add to it’s creamy deliciousness, so give it a try.

Big thanks to Sprinkle Charms for this exceptional long-weekend delight, we’ll be lucky if they last through Monday.
