cookies n cream mini cheesecakes

I love finding new cookbooks st the library. Not only does it keep me from spending forty dollars at a bookstore, I can try out the recipes and see if the books worth owning. It’s like a test drive with no strings attached. Except late fees, though- I always seem to get those.Whoops.

The cookbook I got the recipe from was a Martha Stewart Cupcakes, and I cut the recipe in half- mainly because I was really cheap thrifty, and didn’t want to spend $10.00 on 32oz of cream cheese.

Even cutting the recipe in half, it still yielded 17. I thought it would make 15, but I lucked out, I suppose!

See how easy they are?

1) one bowl- mix batter

2) the “crust” is an Oreo!

3) scoop batter

4) bake!

I love only having a few dishes to wash….I also love me some cookies n cream anything.

Oooo! Another good thing? They bake at a nice low temperature…so it doesn’t get that hot in the kitchen. Because it’s hitting the 90s here. That’s hot, man!
