Oreo Cheesecakes

My boyfriend loves Oreos and he loves Cheesecake, so for part of his Valentine's Day present I made him delicious Oreo Cheesecakes. I will pretty much use any excuse to bake new things. I am not exaggerating when I say that baking is my life passion. It makes me feel complete. My hope for this blog is that some of you will find the inner baker inside of you. These cheesecakes take a little time, because with all cheesecake recipes you have to allot time for refrigeration. So make these in advance for anything you are planning to bake them for. They are creamy and of course full of Oreo cookies, and really what could be better.
Oreo Cheesecakes: Makes 12
For the Crust: 
10 Oreo Cookies (put into the food processor and made into crumbs)
1 tbs of unsalted butter softened 
For the Filling:
12 oz of cream cheese
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 egg
3/4 cup of Oreo cookies( crush them a little) You can use as many Oreos as you want. If you want more or less, it doesn't matter.
Whipped Cream:
8 oz of whipping cream
1 tbs of sugar
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
First, preheat your oven to 350 and spray vegetable oil on your cupcake tins. 
Then, place the Oreos for the crust into the food processor and combine until they are crumbs. 

Then, add the butter to the bowl and combine,
Then, press down the crust into the bottom of the cupcake tins. 
Bake the crust for 5 minutes.
Then, make the filling. In a mixer, mix together the cream cheese and the sugar. 
Then, add in the vanilla and the eggs, and mix until well combined, 
Then, add the Oreos and mix until combined. 
Then, scoop the mixture into the tins on top of the crust about 3/4 full. 
Then, bake them for about 17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

Then, let them cool for a little bit and remove them from the tins. 

Then, make the whipped cream. Pour the whipping cream into the mixer and beat until it becomes stiff like whipped cream. Then, add in the vanilla extract and the sugar and mix until well combined and stiff. 
Then, put the whipped cream on top of the cheesecakes.
Then, I topped mine with a piece of Oreo. Then, keep them refrigerated.
