Oreo Cheesecakes

April 12th, 2015

The way I used to eat Oreos was dunking them in a glass of milk for a few seconds so that the cookies soften up. The best part was when the glass of milk gets flavored with the Oreo cookies, which reminded me of a chocolate Oreo shake. It’s been awhile since I actually bought a package of Oreos, until now, to make these mini Oreo cheesecakes. The Oreo crust was amazing and adding crushed Oreos to the cheesecake filling intensified the flavor even more.

These Oreo cheesecakes are a great alternative if you’re looking for other flavors of cheesecakes. Since I have been using a lot of berries lately in my desserts, I wanted to try a different flavor. Not to mention, one of my favorite ice cream flavors is cookies and cream, so these cheesecakes are up there in terms of one of my favorites.
