Mini Lemon Oreo Cheesecake

Mini Lemon Oreo Cheesecake - make tasty mini cheesecakes in just a few easy steps!

Hi friends! Ok – so have you TRIED the new Lemon Oreos? I have to be honest, I haven’t been the hugest fan of all the new flavors out there. I have dabbled in Candy Dipped Golden Oreos and ok, those were really good. And yes, the Birthday Cake Oreos are also pretty tasty, but nothing quite beat that chocolate original. Maybe until now. The Lemon Oreos are divine. DIVINE. So of course you have to be a fan of all things lemon, but I am so that works out just fine for me. And after eating a few in my favorite fashion (with a glass of milk), I had an AHA moment – Lemon Oreo Cheesecake! Yes, perfect. And that’s just what I’ve made, in a mini cupcake style.

You’re going to want to whip up all the “cheesecake” ingredients in your mixer and add a good amount of CRUSHED LEMON OREOS in that mix. Oh man, just the thought of it makes my mouth water. Lemon Oreos!

Then line a muffin pan with cupcake wrappers, plop down a FULL Lemon Oreo at the bottom and fill with your cheesecake filling. Then you bake, refrigerate and voila! A tasty Mini Lemon Oreo Cheesecake!

I’m not going to talk about how many I ate of these that first day. Thankfully I only made a handful (since I’m the only one who eats cheesecake in my home – what was I thinking?!). But they were oh, so yummy!

    Made these today and mine don’t look as good as yours do, but they are dee-lish! I can completely understand why you don’t want to talk about how many you ate! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. These look so good — you can’t beat lemon in spring! I am a little jealous that we don’t get all the flavoured Oreos in Canada, only regular chocolate and golden :(

  6. So…don’t laugh, but I didn’t even know there were lemon oreos!
    Your mini cheesecakes are so cute–great use of these oreos I didn’t know existed! Plus, everyone digs individual desserts. Makes things more fun.

    Thank you for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo. It’s nice to have you stop by!

  7. Oh. My. Goodness. These were to die for! So easy and delicious! I am a huge fan of the lemon Oreos so when I saw this, I knew I had to make it right away. Thanks! Will def be returning to this recipe throughout the summer :)

  8. Hey! Thanks for sharing these at Domestic Superhero Pinworthy Projects link party last week! I am going to be featuring them tomorrow at the weekly party! I can’t wait to make them! Thanks!

    Wooo! I love lemon so I made these the week I found the recipe. I had enough left in the bag to make them again tonight, but I noticed I missed a step in the directions. I didn’t use any crushed lemon oreos IN the recipe. Either way, they were delicious and pretty cost effective since one bag of oreos can make two batches. On my 3rd attempt at making them, I’ll actually crush up some oreos to taste it that way too!

    • Oh awesome, Courtney! I’m so glad you liked them. I don’t think the crushed Oreos are necessary, but I’m sure you’ll love adding them as well! Thanks for stopping by!

      • Since I can’t tolerate gluten, no Oreos for me :-( but not to be deterred from lemony lusciousness, I’m just making the filling and putting it in aluminum cupcake liners! Thanks for the recipe and the 30 other suggestions…there are a few of those I can adapt, as well! ♡

  10. Ok I’m a card carrying idiot so I’ll ask are you taking out the filling of the cookie or leaving it in?

    • Hi Ellen – great question! The WHOLE cookie! At the bottom of the cupcake cup I put in a whole cookie and when I crushed the Oreos for the cheesecake I also crushed the whole cookie. I hope that helps!

  11. Kimberly,

    I found this on Pinterest. I made it. SO easy. I used the “birthday cake” flavored Oreo’s (since it was for a birthday).

    This was so easy and is my new “go to” when I need easy ‘finger food’ desserts for an event. Can’t wait to try with a little cherry or raspberry on top of the cupcake.

    Thanks for the inspiration. Never would have connected to your site, but had to come back and rate and give you a hearty “thanks”!

  13. Stopping by from Wednesday Whatsits. I haven’t dabbled in any of the Oreo flavors. We don’t buy a lot of this stuff and when we do, its small packages and we keep it simple. I have been experimenting more with lemon flavor things these last few months. I adore cheesecake. I might have to see if my local store has these Lemon Oreos and maybe make these for a special weekend treat.
