Oreo Cheesecake Bites
These Oreo Cheesecake Bites are light in texture, yet ultra creamy. I bet you won’t be able to eat just one!
It’s been so long…waaaaaayyyyy too long…since I’ve held a newborn. And right now I’m wishing I could just hop on a plane to NYC to visit my friend Joanne and her precious son. James was born just a little over a week ago, and he’s a handsome little fella (here are some pictures!), for sure. I’m so happy to see this dream of Joanne’s and Pete’s come true.
Today we’re celebrating Joanne and Pete and James with a virtual baby shower, and I can’t wait for you to dig in to this amazing spread!
Check out these Oreo Cheesecake Bites (I had to make amends with my waistline after making this sweet treat…this recipe is so awesome good!) and all the rest of the baby shower food and drinks made by Joanne’s blogging friends. Find the full list of recipes with links later on in this post. Enjoy!
Cheesecake is a weakness of mine (not to mention, Oreos!), so I was selfish in making a recipe for this baby shower that I knew I’d personally want to eat. But…I also know how much Joanne loves her dessert. And I’m positive that if we were together, we could make a good dent in this pan of cheesecake. She’s the kind of friend that would never let me eat dessert all by myself. ;)
I oftentimes hear people say, “I’ve never made a cheesecake because they’re so hard to make.” To that, I say, “Phooey!” I’ve baked many different cheesecakes over the years, and for the most part, find them easy to make. There are definitely some finicky ones that are more involved. But this recipe is definitely not one of those. This recipe for Oreo Cheesecake Bites is a breeze to make. No special springform pan or water bath is needed. If you have a 13″ x 9″ pan and a desire to eat a cheesecake made by your own two hands, this recipe is for you!
This Oreo cheesecake is light in texture, yet extremely creamy. I topped the bites with swirls of whipped cream, plus a mixture of sprinkles, with little blue hearts for sweet baby James.

Oreo Cheesecake Bites
Yield: 48 cheesecake bites
- 42 regular Oreo cookies, divided
- 5 T. unsalted butter, melted
- 32 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 c. sour cream
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs
- whipped cream and sprinkles, optional garnishes
Heat oven to 325°F.
Line a 13″ x 9″ pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. In a food processor, pulse 30 of the Oreos (use the whole cookie) until finely ground. Drizzle in melted butter and blitz a few times to evenly combine. Press onto bottom of prepared pan.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with electric mixer until blended. Add sour cream and vanilla, and mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed after each, just until blended. Roughly chop remaining cookies (reserve all the tiny cookie crumbs) and gently stir them into batter. Pour mixture over crust. Sprinkle top of batter with reserved tiny cookie crumbs.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until center is almost set. Let cool completely at room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Use foil handles to lift cheesecake from pan before cutting into bars. Mine are cut into 1-1/2″ squares, but you can make them bigger or smaller, whatever you like.

If you want to make these Oreo Cheesecake Bites without the blue sprinkles, here’s a bit more inspiration for you. I simply sprinkled the whipped cream with chocolate sprinkles. You could also use finely crushed Oreo cookies…or anything else your little heart desires! :)
