I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes.  Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies?  Not Me!  Especially the double-stuffed Oreo cookie, it’s one of the best cookies for dunking into a cold glass of milk.

I went out yesterday to do my weekly shop, came home, and before I was able to bring in the first grocery bag Matt was hunting for the cookies and cream ice cream. Much to his disappointment I forget to put it on the list and came home without it. Luckily I remembered the Oreo cookies.  I could have made my own ice cream but unfortunately my freezer is jam packed and haven’t been able to fit the ice cream bowl into it for weeks.

One of Matt’s favourite desserts of all time is cherry cheesecake and I thought to myself why not Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes, that should satisfy his craving.

Plus these cheesecakes are super easy to prepare, everything comes together in one bowl and there’s no crushing chocolate wafers with a rolling pin, then melting butter, baking the crust first and then baking a second time when filled.

Drop an Oreo cookie into each muffin tin, make filling, add chopped cookies, bake, and enjoy, how easy is that?

One tip I will leave with you, keeping in mind this will be difficult, you must chill them for at least 4 hours, but if you can muster up the willpower, they are at their best if you can chill them overnight.

These are the perfect individual-serving delights for an office party, school treat, and would definitely be a hit for a kid’s birthday party.  You can serve them plain or add a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and top with a small Oreo cookie or sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookies.  When I’m hosting a kid’s party I always have at least one Oreo cookie treat.  These Oreo chocolate cookie pops are always a huge hit too and they are so simple to make.

Just a little warning, once you try these Oreo cookies and cream cheesecake cupcakes, there’s no going back, absolutely mouthwatering and scrumptious!  If you enjoy Oreo cookies as much as I do you may also want to try these mini Oreo key lime pies or for chocolate lover’s, Oreo chocolate truffle tart with chocolate glaze.

I can’t wait to try my hand at homemade Oreo cookies.  I was searching for recipes the other day and it was a bit overwhelming there were so many to choose from.  I finally bookmarked two, Jamie’s homemade Oreos and Patricia’s chocolate sandwich cookies with vanilla cream filling.  I couldn’t believe my eyes and I’m sure you can imagine my surprise after going through so many recipes I learned both Jamie and Patricia used the same recipe from Retro Desserts written by Wayne Harley Brachman.  Both posted rave reviews and I’m looking forward to baking a batch soon.

    I dunk mine into my cup of tea, mmm delicious. Grace you should come along and make the desserts for when I visit the festival in the sky.

  2. Grace Says:

    Tea, coffee, milk, anything works for me, fudgy o’s are great too, do you get those in Scotland? Ryan, Are you going to go? I think that is just spectacular, dinner in the sky, who would of thunk it. Wish I could go, would be an amazing experience.

  3. Marly Says:

    Did you know oreos are “accidentally” vegan? It’s the processed comfort food of many vegans…and this recipe is definitely veganizable. I know, I know, not really a word, but I’m going with it. This looks like such a fun recipe. I can’t wait to try it!

  4. Grace Says:

    so easy Marly, the cookies go a little soft after baking, tastes like you’ve dunked them in milk, so good

  5. Ryan Says:

    Yes you get them over here.

  6. Gale Reeves Says:

    I love how the Oreo stencils the bottom of the white cupcake liner. Does it just do that after refrigerated? Or, did you add Pam or something to the liner?
    Great shots!

  7. Grace Says:

    Thanks Gale, here’s the story, I saw a ton of photos of these little gems and you could clearly see the Oreo cookie in all the photos. Of course when I went to turn mine out, I couldn’t. You could clearly see the shape of the Oreo but very little definition. So I took a small pastry brush and dipped it in water and ran it across the bottom and voila you could see the definition. Not sure if my liners were a little thicker (Wilton brand) but I had to fiddle with it to get the shots. Next time I make the recipe I think I will go with a thinner, cheaper, paper liner and keep my fingers crossed. I thought once it dried the definition would disappear but it didn’t.

    Oh my god! I’m ogling at the this!!

  9. Grace Says:

    Thank you Ambika!

  10. Sandie lee Says:

    Oh these look and sound yummy!!

    I love Oreos and usually take 3 double stuff, put them in the microwave for 10 seconds – until the middle gets warm and gooey – them take off the cookie part of two of them and spread their stuffing part onto one cookie…so gooood :)

  11. Grace Says:

    Oh that sounds so good, I must try that!

  12. nothingprofound Says:

  13. Grace Says:

    Thank you

  14. anna Says:

    Grace, you are a genius!!! What a novel idea and as always, so elegant. I actually got excited when I first spotted those little treasures on the Community blog. They just jump off the page. Congrats on another fun and great recipe. Thanks for sharing.


  15. Grace Says:

    Thank you Anna, I just loved your chocolate cupcakes with ganache, absolutely stunning and I just wanted to dive right in!

  16. SurlyE Says:

  18. Julia M Lindsey Says:

    Those are beautiful. They would be perfect for a shower or birthday party

  19. Jenn Says:

    Oh those are gorgeous! I especially love the pics of them upside down to show the cookie, so pretty! I bet they were pretty yummy too :)

  20. Grace Says:

    Thank you Jenn

  21. Your Southern Peach Says:!! I am totally trying these. They are absolutely adorable and I love that they are in the liners! PERFECT for parties. Thank you so much and I can only hope mine come out half as pretty as yours.

  22. Kae Says:

    how long do you bake them for?

  23. Grace Says:

    They took 28 minutes to bake for me but I have talked to a few people that had to prolong the baking time by 10 minutes. I use an oven thermometer because my stove is a little older and I never trust to heat to the appropriate temperature. When they are done you may think they aren’t but they do set in the fridge.

  24. oreoHATER Says:

    i actually do hate oreos. a lot. but this looks DELICIOUS.

  25. Helen from Melbourne, Australia Says:

    Just got mine in the oven….doing a test run for a birthday party. Hope they turn out ok.

  26. Mandi Says:

    These were absolutely scrumptious! I made them for a Halloween party and was disappointed when I got them out of the oven because they didn’t look half as beautiful as yours but they were delicious and a huge hit! Thanks for posting!

  27. Potato Chops and Boneless Chicken Says:

  31. Grace Says:

    Thank you Susan!

  32. Vanderbilt Wife Says:

    Oh my holy cow. Those look divine.

  33. Grace Says:

    They taste even better!

  34. Glucometer Reviews Says:

    Oh wow! That looks absolutely delicious, I love how you took an old favorite and added your own twist. You also did an amazing job with the pictures, I will definitely try this recipe over the weekend.

  35. vivian Says:

    Thanks for the recipe! I tried it once and it tasted awesome.

    Do you think it’ll work without the sour cream? Can I substitute it with something else?

  36. Grace Says:

    Hi Vivian, I think you could substitute the sour cream with yogurt (strain in a cheesecloth lined colander to remove some of the excess water) or creme fraiche, mascarpone would be delicious as well. Let me know which one you choose. Merry Christmas to you and your family Vivian.

  37. Lisa Says:

    So it’s 4 (8 oz.) standard pkgs. of cream cheese, yes?

  38. Grace Says:

    You are right Lisa

  39. Helena Says:

    Perfect combo!

  40. Noname Says:

    I made this for my family and they were okay. I do not think I would make them again.

  41. Grace Says:

    I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy them. They were quite popular in my home and with my son’s friends. We are big cheesecake lovers.

  42. Mikey A Says:

    I think these actually came out better after leaving them in the freezer over night. Excellent either way though.

  43. Grace Says:

    What a great idea, will have to try that next time. Thanks for the tip and happy you enjoyed them.

  44. Erin Says:

    I just made these for our Super Bowl party tomorrow – they’re delicious!! Thank you for sharing the recipe, my husband is going to pass out when he sees these…

  45. Grace Says:

    Very happy you enjoyed Erin, enjoy the game! Matt’s invited the boys tomorrow, so I will be busy getting all the eats ready in the morning. There will be a lot of busy kitchens tomorrow.

  46. Michele Says:

    I just made a batch tonight for my husband’s birthday ( he loves oreos!), but I only have one muffin tin. Is it okay to put the filling in the fridge until I can make another batch? And if so, for how long?

    (: Thank you so much!!!

  47. Grace Says:

    Sorry Michele just getting your comment, not sure if you’ve already handled this but I think I would put the additional paper liners close together in a corning dish and fill. My concern is that the filling would set after a period of time. Let me know how it goes.

  48. Michele Says:

    Thanks! I actually left them in a container overnight, and the next day it was fine except that the oreo bits softened and when mixed dissolved into the filling. :) It was still really delicious, though the cookie bits were pretty much gone. Thanks so much for the recipe! My husband LOVED it. ♥

  49. Grace Says:

    I’m so happy you enjoyed them Michele, everyone loves them here.

  50. amy Says:

    is this possible with a portable oven? :O

    like a flavorwave oven? :\ since there’s no preheating and stuff

    i really want to make this!!

  51. Grace Says:

    Hi Amy, I’m not sure what you mean by a flavorware oven, is that a toaster oven?

  55. Sharon Says:

    How do you make the filling?

  56. Sharon Says:

    I mean the filing on top.

  57. Grace Says:

    Hi Sharon are you talking about the topping on the last cupcake with the chocolate shavings scattered on the plate? If so, I topped with a sweetened whipped cream – here’s the link to that recipe –
