Mini Upside Down Oreo Cheesecakes

by Alli

My grandkids are constantly asking me about my blog and are always interested in helping in the kitchen! They especially love making Mini Upside Down Oreo Cheesecakes. 

My grandson, Logan, loves to help his mom out in the kitchen on a regular basis. And when he’s at my house, he’s always asking if he can help out with the cooking, etc. (I do hope this lasts!)

So you can imagine his surprise and delight when I asked him to make something to share on my blog. When I asked him what he wanted to make, he didn’t hesitate for a second. He blurted out, “Cookies and cream cheesecake!”

We found the perfect recipe for him to make all by himself.  It’s Upside-Down Mini Cheesecakes.

I did supervise while Logan measured, poured, and mixed. He whipped up the mini upside down Oreo cheesecakes all by himself. The only part I had to play in the baking of the cheesecakes was placing them in the oven and pulling them out.  

I feel he’s a tad too young to come in contact with the oven yet, but his poppy has taught him how to make coffee with the Keurig, but that’s another story!

The recipe is a simple cheesecake recipe and calls for cream cheese, sugar, eggs, sour cream, vanilla, and Oreos. It bakes for 20 minutes and after cooled, is placed in the fridge for 3-4 hours.

Here’s how Logan did it! Oh yeah, he just had to wear one of his hats! The first step, of course, was giving those hands a good washing before beginning.
