Oreo and Berry Cheesecake Cupcakes

I bake for many reasons and on many occasions: birthdays and dinners are a given, when I’m happy, when I’m stressed, when I’m sad and need to get my head clear and not think of anything. I realise that food doesn’t solve problems, but it does make you feel much better, even if only temporarily 😛

I checked what I had in my cupboard and made these little delights!

INGREDIENTS: (makes 6)

1 pack of Oreo cookies (7 cookies)
20gr melted butter
250gr cream cheese
3 tbsp sugar
1egg
orange zest
Orange juice from half orange

2 tbsp Mixed Berry jam+1 tbsp water

6 Strawberries

Turn oven on 180°. Blitz the Oreo cookies until they are crumbed and then combine the melted butter (either with your hands or with a fork).

Line a cupcake tray and fill the holder with the cookie base. Press firmly so the cookies stick to the liner and bake for 5 minutes.

When they are cooling, whisk cream cheese, sugar, zest and juice together and finally add the egg. Pour the batter in the holders and then bake for 25minutes.

When mine came out they weren’t solid like normal cupcakes, but I assume this is because of the absence of flour keeping it together so they were slightly wobbly.

Let them cool completely before putting them in the fridge. Put the jam and the water in a bowl and microwave for 20seconds, this is to substitute making a berry sauce. Mix it well cover the cheesecakes. Finally place a strawberry on top.

If you try use the silicone liners, as they are perfect for this type of thing. I left them in Italy 😦 but I’ll have to invest in some quite soon again! 🙂

Peel the cheesecakes and this is what you should get 🙂

  1. I’m here at my desk doing all sorts of business transactions and documents for tons of polpe and reasons and NANCY pops up on the screen. IT ISN’T FAIR!!!!!! I’m drooling AND I’m TRYING to control my cravings for all food, let alone your wonderful delights. I hope whoever has the pleasure of tasting your goodies realizes just how very lucky he/she is.

    1. THANKS! Simone is “sharing” them with me at the moment, I made only six and this time for myself rather than for anyone else so hopefully they will last the week as breakfast 🙂
