I think everyone in my family is a self proclaimed cheesecake addict.
Well, everyone except my little brother. He’s 5. Don’t worry, he’ll catch on 😉
But anything with the word ‘cheesecake,’ even if it’s just implied (like with these ‘cupcakes’) is sure to be devoured. Chocolate cheesecake, strawberry cheesecake, bourbon pumpkin cheesecake, turtle cheesecake, lemon cheesecake, any cheesecake… you name it, I’ll try it and most likely LOVE it.
Did I also mention that my sister is also a dedicated lover of Oreos? I’m sure you can guess who BOTH batches of these went to. Oh yes, we made them…. twice. They are worthy, trust me. I am the cheesecake queen after all.
They came together rather quickly and baked up nicely. I added extra oreos for the full ‘cookies and cream’ effect. The only thing I would change next time is to dial back on the sugar. These are SUPER sweet.
The worst part, waiting for them to come to room temp. Arg. The horrah!!!
A HUGE thanks from both my sister and myself goes out to Nina from Nina’s Cupcakes for choosing this recipe. You made the cheesecake/cookie lovers in my family VERY happy 🙂 Head on over to her blog for the recipe. Or you can find this in Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes book.
Up next month: Snickerdoodle cupcakes. These are addictive and perfect little tea cupcakes!
