Cookies & Creme Cheescake Cupcakes

Easy and Tasty...what's a better combination than that?!?
 My mom just bought me Martha Stewart's book titled Cupcakes (you can imagine what it's about). Just flipping through the book makes me want to get out the mixing bowls and the muffin tins. I saw this recipe and knew I had to make these. I love Oreos...most of my milk consumption is done only as a side to Oreos. I originally made these for a party, that was subsequently cancelled because of bad weather (its been raining here a lot). I've been eating these over the past few days...which I don't know if that's good or bad. But thankfully my brother gave them a thumbs up, so I sent some home with him. So here is another Martha Stewart creation: 

  • 1 pkg of regular Oreos * 30 left whole and 12 coarsely chopped
  • 2 lbs of cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs, room temp, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Pinch of Salt

How-To-Make These Delicious Treats
  1. Preheat oven to 275. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 Oreo in the bottom of each lined cup.
  2. With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat cream cheese until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Gradually add sugar (about 1/4 cup at a time), and beat until combined. Beat in vanilla.
  3. Drizzle in eggs, a bit at a time, beating to combine, and scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Beat in sour cream and salt. Stir in chopped Oreos by hand.
  4. Divide batter evenly among cookie-filled cups, filling each almost to the top**. Bake rotating tins halfway through, until filling is set, about 22 minutes. Transfer tins to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate (in tins) at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). Remove from tins just before serving.
* Martha says 42 creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos. When I went to buy the Oreos, I grabbed a box of double stuffed but DS Oreos have less than 42 per pkg. So I recommend just buying regular.
**Trust that Martha always knows what she's talking about...there is plenty of filling for 30 muffin tins to be filled...actually there was enough for my mom and I to taste <insert eat spoonfuls of> a bit.

If you like cheesecake, Oreos, or cookies&creme ice cream, you'll like these! Hope you Enjoy!
