oreo mini cheesecake

baking is one of the most relaxing things i can do. i love the smells, the decorations, the mixing, the mashing! it's wonderful! my youngest sister's graduation party is tomorrow and one of the desserts (trust me, there will be many!) are cheesecakes. these little precious delights are super easy and delicious! i did a few with the regular gram-cracker crust, but i experimented a little with an oreo crust, which turned out wonderfully! 

{ingredients - gram-cracker crust}
1 1/2 cup gram-cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 butter (1 stick)

{ingredients - oreo crust}
1 1/2 cup crushed oreos (about 10-12 oreo cookies)
1/4 butter (1 stick)

{ingredients - filling}
3 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla

first, preheat oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit and line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

then mix the cream cheese in a mixer till it's fluffy. once fluffy, add the can of sweetened condensed milk. 

like this! :) make sure it is mixed well! this part is extremely important because you don't want any chunks of cream cheese in your cheesecakes! make sure it's nice and smooth! 

while your mixing the cream cheese with the sweetened condensed milk, make the crust. for the either of the crusts, just add the ingredients together (melt the butter first) and put them inside the cupcake liners while patting them down. 

(the two on the upper right are gram-cracker!)

now you want to add your eggs and vanilla to your smooth cheese mix.

see how smooth and creamy this is!

then fill your cupcake liners with the batter, but do not fill to the top! they will spill over in the oven and make a big mess. typically one large spoonful will be enough for each cheesecake! then bake for 20 minutes!

add mini oreos to the tops of the cheesecake for an extra special treat! it also helps distinguish the oreo from the gram-cracker crust!

once bake, they should look like this! a little puffy. (these are the gram-cracker ones)

and wa-la! cute mini oreo cheesecakes!
