Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes
42 chocolate/cream cookies, such as Oreos – 30 left whole and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs, room temperature and slightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners and place one whole cookie into the bottom of each cup.
Beat cream cheese until smooth with an electric mixer, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Gradually add sugar and beat until fully combined. Add vanilla and beat to combine.
Drizzle in the eggs, a little at a time, beating until incorporated and scraping down the bowl as needed. Beat in sour cream and salt. Gently fold into chopped cookies by hand.
Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each one nearly to the top.
Bake, rotating the tins halfway through, until the filling is set, about 22 minutes.
Transfer tins to wire racks to cool completely.
Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. I let them sit in fridge overnight.
Makes 30 cheesecakes.

Ok, I get Mom Of The Year Award for making these! I made them for DD cheerleading sports banquet and all the kids gobbled them down and gave me comments like, Mrs. Cromer, these are awesome and so on and so on!
I tried them out on my co-workers first to see how they liked them and they were a hit with them as well! I thought these were a rich tasting dessert but no one agreed with me! They didn't think they were rich at all so maybe it was just the time of morning that I tried one, 6 am! :)
