Miniature Oreo Cheesecake
3 pounds cream cheese
2 3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla-bean paste or pure vanilla extract
1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies
To make the filling: Place sugar and cream cheese in a mixing bowl and mix on medium speed until soft (6 to 8 minutes). Use a rubber spatula to scrape bowl often to ensure even distribution. Turn mixer on low, then slowly add eggs and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Remove bowl from mixer. Scoop batter into prepared cups until almost full. Bake for 30 minutes or until top of cheesecake is slightly golden. Refrigerate at least 24 hours before serving.
To make the garnish: If desired, top each slice of cheesecake with 1 ounce of real whipped cream and a broken chunk of an Oreo cookie.
