Today’s post is all about Mini Oreo Cheesecakes.  I told you something good was about to come.  How can you possibly go wrong when Oreos and cheesecake are involved?  These are the perfect size so you don’t have to feel guilty about having a sweet little treat!

I have another awesome round up of yummy stuff to share with you later this week.  I think I have added about 10 pounds on just scouring the web to find them all for you. So much good stuff.  You are going to LOVE it!

I am also working on some great Thanksgiving recipes to share with you.  I know we are all looking to the web and Pinterest in search of the perfect ideas for the holidays. This blog is going to be filled with great ideas so keep checking back often!  I promise you will NOT be disappointed!  I might also be sharing a few holiday craft ideas as well.  🙂

Now back to what you are waiting for… Mini Oreo Cheesecakes please take the stage!

These are not hard to make at all and they are sure to be a hit!  I have seen some people who don’t mess with crushing the oreos and making the crust that way.  Some people just stick a whole oreo in the bottom of the cupcake liner and let that be the crust.  Either way… it’s yummy.  Go for whichever one suits your fancy.  I personally prefer the traditional crushed oreo/butter crust so that is what I did here.
