Cheesecake has stood the test of time, being first served at the Olympics in 776 BC. Modern day cheesecake was created when America gave birth to cream cheese in 1872, and it’s been a thing ever since (duh!).
When oreos started becoming mass produced in 1952, it was only a matter of time before oreo cheesecake was created. Since then we’ve seen all the incredible variations: cupcakes, tarts, no bake, baked etc. Here we have the ultimate baked oreo cheesecake cupcakes.
Make them for a mouthwatering treat at home, or serve them up for a party. They are particularly good for birthday parties, and we’ve had great success with them for kids birthday parties. They always seem to disappear, probably because they are so light and fluffy!
How to make oreo cheesecake cupcakes
To make this recipe, you’ll need a 12-cup regular muffin pan like this one with some regular size paper cups to fit inside. We recommend white color cups to show off the Oreo hiding in the bottom! The cookie should fit comfortably into the bottom without too much wiggle room.
Once the cookies are in the paper cups, you can make the homemade cheesecake filling. Any brick cream cheese will do, but if you want the BEST cheesecake, one of our secrets is going to the deli counter at the supermarket and ask for fresh deli cream cheese. It’s softer that the packaged variety and has no preservatives for the best flavor. If you’re looking to make a skinnier version, then go for light cream cheese, which is a perfectly acceptable substitute for this recipe.
Mix the cream cheese with the rest of the ingredients in a bowl to make the filling. Beating the ingredients together at high speed is what gives the fluffy texture, so get it nice and smooth! We’ve also included crumbled oreo pieces in the filling for extra flavor – don’t worry, they soften up during baking.
Once you’ve finished making your filling, spoon it into each cup until they’re almost full…
And into the oven they go to bake for about 20 minutes at 275°F. Note that this is a cooler oven then usual to keep the cupcakes extra moist and avoid browning.
These cupcakes will quickly become your new favorite dessert! They are great served warm out of the oven, but equally good chilled if you want to make them ahead of time.
