These oreo cheesecake cupcakes are baked in a low-temperature oven to become fluffy and light. They’re perfect if you want a quick dessert idea to serve up at home.

They are particularly good for birthday parties or special occasions like Mother’s Day. We’ve packed them for school lunches and kids just love to show off the hidden oreo on the bottom.

How to Make Mini 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, like this:

Once the cookies are in the paper cups, you can make the homemade cheesecake filling in a mixing bowl.

A medium-size mixing bowl and a hand mixer work well…

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 25-30 minutes at 300°F, a slightly cooler oven than usual. UPDATE: We increased this from 275°F after some of you reported it wasn’t cooking fully at higher altitudes.

It’s a balance because going above 300°F can cause the cheesecake to crack and brown on the surface, while cooler may leave it mushy especially if you have a weak oven. An oven thermometer is a handy tool if your oven is not that reliable.

They taste so good after being chilled for a few hours, but you can serve them warm out of oven. It’s a great make a head recipe.

Tips and Tricks for Making Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes

  1. While any brick cream cheese will do, we always find that fresh cream cheese from the deli counter produces the best flavor.
  2. Ensure your cream cheese is softened before mixing – here are tips on how to quickly soften cream cheese.
  3. Bake at a lower temperature than usual 275-300°F to get a lighter color and avoid browning or cracking. Here are pictures showing them baked at different temperatures.Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes Baked at Different Temperatures
  4. If you want a substitute for sour cream, greek yogurt or any thick yogurt will work well.
  5. To make this recipe lighter and healthier, use light cream cheese and nonfat sour cream.
