Tempted by Cheesecake…..Sure why not? With Halloween and Thanksgivin coming up in a few weeks I figured I would tempt you with some  Oreo mini Cheesecake.


Since It’s practically a tradition that this time of year, anything that can possibly be flavored with pumpkin and/or pumpkin pie spice will be flavored with them. The list gets longer with every passing autumn.
Did you hear? … The pumpkin flavor craze has infiltrated our favorite cookie, and while they aren’t available in stores yet, according to a few lucky people who have gotten their hands on the them - new flavor combination will be a huge hit ! So I decide to jump into that train and add some pumpkin flavor to classic Oreo mini Cheesecake.

    I absolutely love pumpkin cheesecakes and this mini version looks just perfect! One question, any tips for getting them out of the muffin tin? Thanks, I’m looking forward to making these with the leftover pumpkin puree sitting in my fridge.

      I’m so sorry, Jen! I have never had a problem, and feel horrible that yours aren’t coming out.
      I’m using a convenient mini cheesecake pan where the bottom of each well is covered with a removable disk
      that can be pushed up through the hole in the bottom.
      This makes the cheesecakes simple to remove once they are baked.
      But i think you can try dipping your knife into water and them loosening the sides.
      Hope these will be helpful
