Oreo Mini Cheesecakes

Yes! It’s here! It’s COOKIE SEASON! Pretzel M&Ms have been bought, butter is being hoarded, and things are about to get real in my kitchen. As per our yearly tradition, Danielle and I have been swapping ideas for a few weeks now, and we debated our choices in a Google chat on the weekend, as well as addressed controversial subjects such as coconut in butter tarts.

Before I get going, I thought I’d post a few easy treats this week that I haven’t shared before, as a few people (well, one, that’s you Weedy), asked for suggestions for things to make. These mini cheesecakes are an easy treat that uses one bowl and takes about 20 minutes to pull together, with whole Oreos making the easiest crust ever. Perfect for a last minute or late night baking session, when you need something in a flash.
