Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

Ready for something else sweet from me?

K, good.

These little pretties are a combo of the world’s most perfect cookie and cheesecake.

It’s like they got married.

But cheesecake is a little clingy, so I don’t see a divorce in their future.

I’m just wondering – does anybody ever get tired of Oreos? I can’t buy one package of the damn things without both my kids and husband all hiding it from each other in crazy random spots in the pantry.

My husband is a big kid when it comes to cookies and cake. Oh, and ice cream and most types of candy.

And gum…he swallows his gum – isn’t that gross? Wonder if he have a big sticky ball of gum stopping up his intestines.

I know, ew. Bless his heart.

You can top these with melted chocolate if you want – I did half with and half without. Here’s the printable –

  • Add one egg at a time, beating in between.
