No Bake Mini Oreo Cheesecakes
This delicious recipe is so easy to make and you don’t need a ton of ingredients!
For the Crust
- 1 cup Oreo crumbs
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
For the Filling
- 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup sour cream, at room temperature
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- a pack of foil wrappers
- 12 standard muffin pan
- a stand mixer
Prep Time: 10 minutes // Chill Time: 4 hours
Make the Crust
Step 1. Line 12 standard muffin pan with foil wrappers.
Step 2. Combine the Oreo crumbs and melted butter in a small bowl. When combined, they should have the texture of wet sand. Divide the crust evenly between the muffin tins and pat it down to evenly coat the bottom.
Note: The bottom of a shot glass works perfectly to pack the crust tightly into the muffin pan.
Make the Filling
Step 3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar until it is light and fluffy– about 3 minutes.
Step 4. With the mixer on low, add the vanilla extract and salt. Mix to combine.
Step 5. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream using the wire whisk until stiff peaks form— about 2 minutes on high speed.
Step 6. Add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and fold it gently to combine.
Step 7. Divide the filling evenly between the muffin tins. I use a ¼ cup cookie scoop to ensure they are all the same size.
Chill & Serve
Step 8. Place the cheesecakes in the fridge to chill for at least 4 hours, although overnight is preferred.
Step 9. Serve chilled as the cheesecakes will soften as they warm. Leftover cheesecakes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Step 10. If desired, top with whipped cream or crushed Oreos.
For a smoother, finer crust, remove the filling from the Oreos before turning them into crumbs.
Your cream cheese and sour cream must be at room temperature for them to incorporate smoothly. If you forget to set them out, you can microwave them for 10-15 seconds but make sure not to overheat them (you want them just barely warm, not hot).
You must use heavy cream in this recipe. Milk will thin the cheesecakes and they will not set properly.
