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.

Oreo Ice Cream

One of my favorite memories growing up is eating homemade snow cream.  Have you done that before?  It has now become a tradition with my kids as well.  Actually, my middle son loves to just pick up handfuls of snow and eat it.  I prefer it in the form of ice cream.  🙂  My husband makes it the best!

Since it isn’t winter, we have to settle for regular ice cream in our handy dandy Cuisinart ice cream maker.  I am NOT complaining about that though.  It has churned out some mighty fine delicious ice cream for us! Like my recently posted Heath Bar Ice Cream.  Today, I am sharing one of our favorite recipes.  This is our version of Oreo (or cookies & cream) ice cream.  It is creamy and delicious with small chunks of your favorite Oreo cookies.

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Oreos, chopped into small pieces

  2. Pour it into the ice cream maker and make according to your machine’s directions.
  3. A few minutes before the ice cream is finished, mix in the Oreo pieces.

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you should seriously think about getting one.  We make so much more ice cream now that we bought a new one where we don’t have to mess with that rock salt, etc.  I highly recommend this Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. There’s nothing like a good batch of homemade ice cream.

You won’t believe how much fun you can have with your own ice cream maker!

I’ve got lots more fun ice cream recipes to come!

The cool thing about Oreos is that I remember eating them back when I was younger.  Now the tradition continues on with my kids, and probably their kids one day too!

It is so fun to watch how people eat them so differently too.  My daughter eats the cream out of them and leaves the chocolate cookie.  My middle son licks the cream out of the middle and then eats the chocolate cookie.  My oldest just puts the whole cookie in his mouth and enjoys.
