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.
Mini Upside Down Oreo Cheesecakes
Logan loves cooking!
Heat oven to 350º F. and place cupcake liners in a 12-cup muffin tin. Add an Oreo cookie to each liner. Coarsely chop the remaining cookies and set aside for later.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until well combined. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix well. Add eggs, one at a time and beat until just blended.
Stir in the chopped cookies and spoon into the muffin cups. Bake 20 minutes or until centers are almost set. Cool and refrigerate in the tins for 3-4 hours.
Remove cheesecakes from the muffin tins.
The mini upside-down Oreo cheesecakes are a big hit! And Logan is an excellent baker!
