Halloween Pumpkin Mini Cheescakes

Ingredients

• 12 Halloween Oreos

• 1 (8 oz.) pkg. light cream cheese, softened

• ¼ cup sugar

• 1 egg

• 1 Tbsp. light sour cream

• ½ tsp. vanilla

• ½ cup canned pumpkin

• Red and yellow food coloring

• ¾ whipping cream

• 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar

• ½ tsp. vanilla

• Halloween sprinkles

 

 Instructions

 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

 2. Line a 12 count muffin pan with cupcake liners (I like to use the foil ones for this). Place one entire Oreo into the bottom of each liner.

 3. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together with a hand mixer until creamy.

 4. Add the egg and beat it until smooth.

 5. Add the sour cream, ½ tsp. vanilla, and pumpkin and beat again until smooth.

 6. Add some red and yellow food coloring to the batter until it reaches a nice orange color. You want it as close to the orange frosting in the Oreos as possible. It will darken a little while cooking. I believe I used 4 drops of red with 2 drops of yellow.

 7. Divide the batter evenly between the 12 liners.

 8. Place in the oven and bake for 20-22 minutes. Cool in pan for 15-20 min before removing and placing on a wire rack to finish cooling.

 9. While the cheesecakes cool, beat the whipping cream until firm. Then beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla until blended. Pipe whipping cream on the cheesecakes and sprinkle with sprinkles.

 10. Keep refrigerated until serving. Makes 12 mini cheesecakes
