- 42 Oreo cookies, 30 left whole and 12 coarsely chopped
- 4 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- Pinch fine sea salt
Preheat the oven to 275°F (the low temperature helps keep the cheesecakes smooth and creamy). Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 whole Oreo cookie in the bottom of each lined up.
In a large bowl use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth and combined. Gradually add the sugar and beat until combined. Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs, one at a time, until combined. Beat in the sour cream and salt. Stir in the chopped Oreo cookies with a rubber spatula.
Divide the batter evenly among the cookie-lined cups, filling each almost to the top. Bake, rotating the pan halfway through baking, until the filling is set, about 22 minutes. Transfer the muffin tins to wire racks to cool completely. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
Gonna make these today!!!!
I see the non-lightness as being a pro! I hate eating cheesecake that’s so light it feels like I’ve just eaten air. So I’m all for this. I love the Oreo on the bottom! And the peanut butter. And everything else. 🙂
Pretty sure no movie will ever replace The Parent Trap as my favorite, no matter how old I get. That scene changed my life!
I love Parent Trap! Lindsay really was the cutest thing back then. Not sure what happened to her now.
Anyway, so glad you thought of making this! It’s such an awesome combo!
Lindsay Lohan changed my life with the peanut butter & oreo combination. And these cheesecakes look even better than that- definitely going to try making them.
Oh my word, these look amazing. It’s like all my favorite things in one dessert!
The peanut butter and oreo scene in The Parent Trap remake is one of the best parts of the movie! I can’t wait to make this recipe for holiday parties. Maybe my friends and I will watch the movie and remember the innocent Linsay Lohan while eating these cups. 🙂
Ooooh, love this idea!
