Oreo Cheesecake Bites
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 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!
Oreos and Cheesecake Are Two Of My Favorite Desserts
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. ;)
These Mini Oreo Cheesecakes Are So Easy To Make
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.
What Pan Should I Use?
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!
But…if you’d actually like to make this cheesecake in a springform pan, I’ve also included instructions in the recipe card. I use a 10″ springform pan and it turns out PERFECT!
What Is The Texture Of Oreo Cheesecake Bites?
The Oreo cheesecake bites are 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. Note that if you are using a springform pan, the cheesecake will be much taller, and will have a more dense and creamy texture.

How Else Can I Decorate These Oreo Cheesecake Bites?
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! :)
- 42 regular Oreo cookies, divided
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 32 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon 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, and set aside.
- In 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 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 for next step) and gently fold them into the batter. Pour mixture over crust.
- Sprinkle top of batter with reserved tiny cookie crumbs. And then bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until center is almost set. Remove from oven and 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'd like to use a springform pan, grab a round 10" springform pan with tall sides. Wrap heavy foil around the bottom and up the sides. Use the same ingredients and instructions as if you were using a 9" x 13" pan. The only thing that will be different is that the baking time will need to increase, as this variation in the springform pan will yield a much thicker cheesecake. Bake until the center is almost set, about 80 minutes (1 hour and 20 minutes).
