Wednesday, December 29th: Martha Stewart's Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes
Well, the second attempt at Oreo cupcakes was much more successful than the first. For the recipe I chose a safe option, Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes from Martha Stewart. My cupcakes didn't turn out as neat as her pictures but they were tasty so I've deemed them a success.
Martha Stewart's Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes RecipeMakes 30
42 Oreos, 30 left whole, and 12 coarsely chopped
2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
1 cup sour cream
Pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 whole cookie in the bottom of each lined cup.
2. With an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat cream cheese until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Gradually add sugar, and beat until combined. Beat in vanilla.
3. Drizzle in eggs, a bit at a time, beating to combine and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in sour cream and salt. Stir in chopped cookies by hand.
4. Divide batter evenly among cookie-lined cups, filling each almost to the top. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until filling is set, about 22 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate at least 4 hours (or up to overnight). Remove from tins just before serving
