Cookies and Cream Mini Cheescakes

This is a Martha Stewart recipe. I love her recipes and the minute I saw this one I knew it would be no exception. I love cookies and cream, so to combine it with a cheesecake sounded like a great idea.

This recipe is easy because you are making mini cheesecakes. My 9 year old daughter and I worked on these one Saturday afternoon and we had lots of fun making them. It was an easy, yet really good recipe for her to help me with. We worked on them together and then took them to a church dinner and they were a hit.  I did not bring any home and that is always a sign of a good recipe.

The one thing about this recipe is that it makes a lot.  This worked great for me because I was taking it somewhere, but if you are just making these for you to eat at home, I would half the recipe. The original recipe also said it made 30, I got 42 of them, which is more than my family would eat.

This recipe came from the Martha Stewart Cupcakes cookbook, but it is not exactly a cupcake.
