I am sharing a very easy recipe for Mini Oreo Cheesecakes plus a tip for transporting the cheesecakes. Do you stress out when you have to make something for a party, a wedding, a shower, and you have to transport your dish to another location?
This is my favorite thing to make, because it is very easy to make, easy to store, easy to transport, and everyone loves them. But the best thing about this is you can make it ahead of time and freeze until the day of the event. This is also a great thing to make when you have to make more than one dish. I usually make these two or three days before I need them, and I store them in the freezer. I usually feel great in knowing that one of my dishes turned out well and is ready.
The crust is a regular size Oreo cookie. Drop the cookie in a muffin pan lined with a cupcake liner. The cookie should fit perfectly, but if the cookie looks a little small, it will still work. Place the cream cheese mixture on top and bake for 15 minutes. Top with whipping cream and a mini oreo cookie, and that’s it!
You can make these cheesecakes the day before the event and store them in the refrigerator overnight. If you make the cheesecakes any earlier, you need to freeze them because the cookie crust will become too soft in the refrigerator. Before freezing, wrap the containers tightly with plastic wrap.
I purchase these plastic cupcake containers. They are perfect for keeping the cakes separated. After the cheesecakes cool, I place them in the container, and refrigerate until ready to serve or transport. The cheesecakes will stay in perfect condition when moving the containers around.
I usually add the mini oreo on top after I take the cheesecakes out of the refrigerator or freezer.
These mini Oreo cheesecakes make a beautiful presentation at tea, shower, or any party event, plus they are incredibly delicious.
Mini Oreo Cheesecakes
- 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 box mini Oreos cookies
- 1 pkg regular Oreo cookies

Place one Oreo cookie in the bottom of a good quality cupcake liner.
Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add the egg. beat on low until combined. Spoon over the Oreo cookie.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until the center is set. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Place on wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

I love the sound of these little cheesecakes. I too hate having to transport food. At Christmas I made a family trifle and transported it 2 mile down the road to my parent’s house and finished the cream layer just before serving. That usually works well. But in a few week I’m making a special birthday cake and transporting it 25 miles – that’s certainly going to take some thinking about! #YumTum
These look absolutely delish and so delicate, a great addition to any party! plus oreos are one of my Fav’s ! Thanks for sharing on #YumTum
Thank you Charlotte and thanks for hosting the link party!
I really like the idea that they can be made ahead of time. That is always very helpful. The cheese cakes look delicious and very festive.
These are so simple and pretty! What a fun treat for a party!

Sherry, My guys would love these! Easy to make ahead and store. But I also have to tell you that your photography is beautiful! Just really lovely. Well done recipe and photography!
Thank you Lynn. I have been trying so hard to improve my photos. I finally found the right spot in the house to take food pictures. I have to work on taking photos of room now.
Yum, and I could easily make these gluten free with the gluten free version of oreos. Thanks for linking up to Talk of the Town!
Yum! I’m sold on the WHOLE Oreo in the crust! My Oreo- and cheesecake-loving husband would go crazy for these.

Thanks Abby! I did not know about your link party. It looks like a great one. I linked two projects and I will be a regular! Thanks.
These mini cheesecakes are right up my son’s alley. He loves baking and wants to put oreos in everything! I’ll share this with him. Thanks so much for linking up at Inspiration Thursday. Have a great week!
Oh my word! These look amazing 🙂

These look SO yummy! Thanks for the tip about buying the plastic containers at Walmart too.
Thanks for linking up at Talk of the Town – I’m giving you a shout-out on Facebook, and pinned it to the Knick of Time party board! 🙂
Thanks Angie for pinning and sharing!!
Sherry, first off the pictures of this dessert on your site look absolutely gorgeous. I love the new look, it’s so you.
And this dessert is right up my alley. I recently found gluten free sandwich cookies, and I fell in love. I’m thinking that for our pillow palooza party we will be making these as a little refreshment for those who come. Pop in a gluten free cookie and I can eat them too. I’m so excited!
Thanks so much for sharing I’ll let you know how things go. But I’m sure they’ll be a hit.
Thanks Nikki! I haven’t thought about making these gluten free. That’s a great idea!
