Had always wanted to give a baked cheese cake a try. I've done chilled cheese cake before but not the baked version.
Found this recipe online for oreo cheese cupcakes (original recipe from Martha Stewart's Cupcakes), but I had made several changes to the amount of ingredients since I only had 250g of cream cheese.
This is a very simple recipe, yet it yields cupcakes with great flavor.
250 g of cream cheese
1/4 cup of caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 large egg
1/4 cup of sour cream
a pinch of salt
Preheat over to 140 degree celcius.
Line muffin tins with paper liner and place one whole oreo cookie at the bottom of each paper cup.
With a mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth and add in sugar, followed by vanilla and sour cream. Beat until well combined.
Add in about 2-3 crushed oreo cookies into the batter.
Scoop the batter and fill in the paper cups until almost full.
Bake for about 22 minutes until the mixture is almost set.
Transfer to wire racks to cool and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee... mmmmm yum!!
* the above yields about 15 cupcakes.
