Halloween Oreo Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Did everyone have a good weekend? If you follow me on Twitter, then you’d know that Saturday was a huge baking day for me and I got about a million recipes tested AND photographed! What a long day that was! But, there really was nothing better to do with all the rain we were getting! And, I needed to make this recipe for Day 1 of Halloween Treats Week! Aren’t these individual cheesecakes so darling! I just love ‘em!

This recipe is not only just adorable, but really easy to make! You should also have most of these ingredients on hand which is always a bonus. You may have to pick up some of these Halloween Oreos and maybe some cream cheese, but other then that, everything else could be considered a pantry item.

So, here’s what you do: Line a muffin tin with those cupcake paper liners and drop an oreo down in the bottom. Then you whip up some cream cheese with pumpkin, spices and a few other cheesecake culprits like eggs and sugar. Spoon that over the oreos and bake! That’s it! I did a fun spiderweb design on the top with melted chocolate but that is optional! Keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve! (Told you it was easy!)

If you are short on time, but need to make something for your kids’ Halloween parties at school or bring something to work, then these Halloween Oreo Pumpkin Cheesecakes would be a good option! So, get your Halloween baking groove on and whip some of these babies up! You’ll be glad you did! :)

Halloween Oreo Pumpkin Cheesecakes
yield: 12 individual cheesecakes

Ingredients:
1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
pinch of salt
12 Halloween Oreos
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners. Place 1 oreo in the bottom of each muffin tin. Set aside. In large bowl, whip cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Stir in vanilla, pumpkin, egg, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour and salt until combined. Scrape sides of bowl and whip mixture until completely smooth. Spoon mixture evenly over oreos. Bake 20-25 minutes or until cheesecakes have set. Remove from oven to cool. Once cheesecakes are cool enough to handle, remove from muffin tin. Remove paper wrappers. Microwave chocolate chips until smooth and completely melted. Spoon chocolate into a piping bag with a small round tip. Pipe melted chocolate in concentric circles on top of cheesecakes. Drag the end of a toothpick through the chocolate to create a spiders web look. Repeat with remaining cheesecakes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Oh my gosh. I am not typically a huge fan of cheesecake- but I have to say, these are really cute and the pumpkin makes them kinda irresistible!

    It’s possible that I love you and hate you all at once. These just skyrocketed to my must-do list. Going to have to pin this one for sure!

    I didn’t expect much with this recipe. I was pretty sure I would not like it in fact. Was I wrong! I am not a big pumpkin fan but it turned out wonderfully! This recipe is a keeper!

    I recently found this blog (and am so in love with it), this is the first recipe I tried. I wanted it for the pumpkin cheesecake combination with the oreo crust, not necessarily for the (totally) cute Halloween theme since I didn’t find it until after Halloween this year. So I didn’t use Halloween Oreos and didn’t do the spideweb. I made this dessert for a neighborhood wine night that we do, and received a mixed review. I had people who loved the Oreo that had softened and absored some of the cheesecake flavor and others (like myself) who loved the pumpkin cheesecake portion but could go either way about the Oreo with it. The Oreo at the bottom was still a little hard on some of the cheesecakes, and perfect with the others. I would want to find a remedy to make it more consistent next time I make them, I may dip the Oreos in milk or something before baking next time to soften them… not quite sure. Overall, definitely a fun recipe and easy to make. AWESOME cheesecake and spices with the pumpkin ( I love that it didn’t call for pumpkin pie spice which I’m sick of :) ) I would use the same concept next time and leave out the Pumpkin until next Halloween. Can’t wait to try another one of your recipes very soon!

    Hi Lauren!!! I just wanted to let you know that your Halloween oreo pumpkin cheesecakes are going to be the “hit” this year for my little italian kindergarten children! Yes,that’s right ….YOUR GOING INTERNATIONAL!!!!!!! :) :):) I’m from Chicago,moved to Italy 42 years ago….miss my never forgotten BEAUTIFUL country…..and now I’m teaching english to…. 38 little curious “volcanoes”….( three to six years old :) ! ) Italy doesn’t celebrate Halloween…..BUT I SURELY DO !!!!! and I get my little ones to celebrate it with me !!! so, this year,I’m going to bake your cheesecakes for them all. You know, Lauren,it’s only about two years that they sell Oreo cookies in the stores here in Italy…..(I’m not kidding you !!!!) It’s been 40 years since I ate my last one……CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT???????? but ,anyway, now they’re here ( AT LAST!!!!) the only thing is that there isn’t the halloween type of Oreos so I’ll probably try to take them apart and try coloring the cream orange….I’m going to try baking them a bit before halloween so I can test the way they come out…..thank you so much for sharing your recipe with …..me !!Love and kisses…..from Italy……and me :) :):) !!!!!!
