I know I’ve already posted a Oreo Cheesecake recipe over here. But these mini ones are too cute not to post about. As you probably already know I love cheesecake. This one is no exception, the Oreo cookie top with the chunks of Oreo evenly distributed make it one of the most scrumptious cheesecakes ever. This cheesecake is also aesthetically appealing, the Oreo cookie top surreptitiously hides the infamous cheesecake cracks creating a picture perfect cheesecake. Because this cheesecake contains Oreo Cookies I feel it’s important to address a topic: Oreo Cookies vs. Chips Ahoy Cookies. I’ve always been an Oreo Cookie girl, as a matter of fact an Oreo Cookie anything girl, because the flavor has always appealed more to me. But some of my friends enjoy Chips Ahoy Cookies. I don’t understand why. I will never understand why. The world is a confusing place. Anyway the moment you’ve all been waiting for the cheesecake!
