Mini Turtle Pumpkin Cheesecakes


Mini Turtle Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Yields: 12 mini cheesecakes


12 Oreos

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1 egg, room temperature

3/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix; I use Libby’s), room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon all purpose flour

1 cup caramel sauce (from scratch or the store)

3/4 cup chopped pecans

2 ounces semi-sweet baking chocolate



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with liners. Place one Oreo in each liner.
  2. Make sure your ingredients are all room temperature to avoid lumps!
  3. Beat cream cheese with a hand or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until smooth. Beat in the egg, sugar, and pumpkin puree, mix until smooth. Add vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and flour, mix until smooth.
  4. Spoon cheesecake mixture over Oreos in prepared pan. (Fill the muffin cups about 3/4 full using about 1/4 cupfuls of the cheesecake mixture per liner.)
  5. Bake for 22-25 minutes until the cheesecakes loose their glossy top. Some may start to crack around the edges, and a toothpick will come out clean from the center of the cheesecake. Cool completely to room temperature then chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  6. When serving: unwrap each cheesecake. Stir pecans and caramel together in a small bowl. Melt chocolate according to package directions in a small bowl and then place the melted chocolate in a ziploc baggie with the tip cut off. Spoon some of the pecan caramel mixture over the top of the cheesecakes, then drizzle with chocolate.
  7. Store in refrigerator. Will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container or you can freeze the cheesecakes without the topping for up to one month.

Oreo Cookie Crust


Oreo Cookie Crust

Yield : 1 pie crust (9″)


25 Oreo Cookies (your favorite flavor)

5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

5b 5


  1. Finely crush your cookies. I like to use a food processor for this step, but you can also place the cookies in a plastic bag and roll the sealed bag with a rolling pin. If you’re using a rolling pin, seal the bag but leave about an inch open for air to escape. You’ll have to put some muscle in it to get a fine crush. The crust sticks together best when the cookies are crushed finely.
  2. NOTE: You do NOT need to remove the filling from the Oreo.
  3. Stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together with a fork. Press crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of a 9″ pie plate. Chill until ready to fill.
  4. For a no-bake pie: chill the crust about 30 minutes before filling, then fill/chill as directed in the recipe.
  5. For a crunchier no-bake filling pie: bake the crust for 8 minutes at 350°F then cool completely before filling.
  6. For a filled baked pie: press the crust into the pie plate and then bake about 8 minutes at 350°F. Fill with filling and bake as directed in the recipe.
  7. This crust can also be pressed into a 9×9 inch pan for pie bars or used as a cheesecake crust in a 9-10″ springform pan.

Frozen Oreo Peanut Butter Cake


Frozen Oreo Peanut Butter Cake

Yield: one 8″ cake


Oreo Crust

  • 1 package oreos
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Peanut Butter Layer

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 container cool whip

Oreo Layer

  • 10 oreos, pulsed but not into fine crumbs
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups cool whip

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 & 1/2 cups chocolate chips, chopped finely
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • Powdered sugar, optional

Oreo Buttercream

  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2-2.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp oreo crumbs, reserve from the oreo crust


Oreo Crust

  1. In a food processor, pulse 1 package of oreos into crumbs. Reserve 2 tbsp of oreo crumbs to make the oreo buttercream. Combine the rest of the oreo crumbs in a bowl with the melted butter. Mix until the oreo crumbs are thick. Press the oreo crumbs into the bottom of an 9 inch round springform pan, making the oreo crust as even as possible. Place the pan in the freezer.

Peanut Butter Layer

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and cream cheese, beat using an electric mixer until smooth. Add in the cool whip and mix by hand until incorporated. Spread the peanut butter layer on top of the oreo crust, making it as even and smooth as possible. Place the pan in the freezer.

Oreo Layer

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the roughly pulsed oreos (not crumbs) and cream cheese, beat using an electric mixer until smooth. Add in the cool whip and mix by hand until incorporated. Spread the oreo layer on top of the peanut butter layer, making it as even and smooth as possible. Cover the pan in plastic wrap and return to the freezer for at least 3-4 hours, or overnight.

Chocolate Ganache

  1. Chop the chocolate chips into fine pieces. Place them in a heat proof bowl. In a small saucepan, bring the heavy cream to a boil over medium-high heat. Pour the heavy cream over the chopped chocolate. Allow it to set for a few minutes. Then gently stir until smooth. If the chocolate seems too runny, allow it to sit at room temperature for a few minutes, this will help it thicken up. If it continues to be too runny, whisk in 1 tbsp of powdered sugar at a time until you have the right consistency.

Oreo Buttercream

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and vegetable shortening, beat using an electric mixer until fluffy. Add in the 2 tbsp of reserved oreo crumbs.
  2. Begin to add in the powdered sugar, about 1 cup at a time. Slowly beat the mixture until the powered sugar is incorporated. Continue this process, adding enough powdered sugar to make sure the frosting isn’t too wet.
  3. Transfer a portion of the frosting to a large ziploc bag or piping bag. Push or squeeze the frosting down, getting rid of any air pockets. If using a ziploc bag, cut half one corner, making a hole between the size of a dime and a penny. I used a piping bag fit with a wilton 2D tip.

To assemble

  1. Remove the cake from the freezer. As this time, remove the sides of the springform pan. Place the cake on a cake stand. Allow the cake to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. Pour the chocolate ganache on top of the cake, spreading it evenly around the top of the cake with a spatula and allow it to drizzle down the sides.
  3. Pipe dollops of oreo buttercream around the edges of the cake.
  4. Place oreos in some of the dollops of buttercream if you desire.
  5. Leftover cake should be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in the freezer for up to 2 days.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes


Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cheesecakes


Oreo Cookie Crust

18 whole Oreos (Double Stuf or regular)

1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Filling

16 oz (448g) full-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature

3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar

1/4 cup (60g) yogurt*

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup (180g) mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (or regular size)

homemade salted caramel sauce (step-by-step photos included)



Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line two 12-count cupcake pans with 18 liners.

For the crust: In a food processor or blender, pulse the whole Oreos into a fine crumb. Stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together in a medium sized bowl. Press 1 heaping Tablespoon of mixture into the bottom of each liner, see picture above for a visual. You should have enough for 16-18 cups. Bake in batches for 5 minutes and allow to slightly cool as you prepare the filling.

For the filling: In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the sugar and yogurt and beat on medium speed until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla extract and mini chocolate chips.

Spoon batter into the crusts until nearly full. Bake each pan for 20-23 minutes. The centers will still be slightly jiggly, that’s OK.  The centers may also have risen up quite a bit, but they will deflate as the cheesecakes cool. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely at room temperature, at least 1 hour. Transfer to the refrigerator and allow to chill for at least two hours.

Right before serving, top each cheesecake with salted caramel and additional chocolate chips, if desired. Cover cheesecakes tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Store cheesecakes (without caramel) in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

Additional Notes:

*Sour cream OR nonfat, low fat, vanilla, plain, Greek or regular yogurt is OK.

Oreo Cake


Oreo Cake

Yield:  two 9″ cake

A rich double chocolate layer cake with two layers of Oreo cookies inside, a thick cream filling, chocolate buttercream, and an Oreo cookie crumb coating. For extreme chocolate and Oreo lovers only!


Chocolate Layer Cake

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not dutch process)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature2
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup full fat sour cream or full fat Greek yogurt, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup hot coffee or hot water
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chopped (I used 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • 1 15.25 ounce package Oreos

Oreo Cream Filling

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup shortening3
  • 2 and 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk or cream (cream preferred for best texture)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Chocolate Buttercream

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream (cream preferred for best texture)
  • 16 additional Oreo cookies, pulsed into a fine crumb




  1. Position oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat to 350°F (177°C). Generously spray two 9-inch cake pans with nonstick spray. Line the bottom of the pan with Oreos in a single layer; I fit about 15 Oreos in each pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, blend the cocoa powder, sugar, cake flour, baking soda, and salt together on low speed for 30 seconds. Add the eggs, oil, sour cream, and vanilla and mix for 1 minute on medium-low speed.
  3. Remove the bowl from the mixer and add the coffee and chocolate chips; stir to combine. Some of the chocolate chips will melt as you stir. Try to avoid over mixing the batter.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans over the Oreos. Bake for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  5. While the cake cools, make the Oreo Cream Filling. In a large bowl, using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and shortening together on high speed until fluffy. Add the confectioners’ sugar, 1 cup at a time, alternating with the milk/cream and vanilla. The filling will be very thick, but you may add more milk/cream if you prefer. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  6. While the cake cools, make the Chocolate Buttercream. In a large bowl, using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter on high speed until fluffy, about 1 minute. Beat in the cocoa powder and vanilla on low speed, then add the confectioners’ sugar 1 cup at a time, alternating with the milk/cream. The buttercream will be thick. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  7. Once the cakes are cooled, assemble the cake. Place 1 cooled layer on a cake stand or large plate, Oreo cookie side down. Using an offset spatula or knife, cover the top with a 1-inch thick layer of Oreo Cream Filling. Top with the 2nd cake, Oreo cookie side up. Cover the tall layer cake with chocolate buttercream. Working quickly, cover the cake in Oreo crumbs. This will get a little messy, but just pat them up the sides with your hands and all over the top of the cake.
  8. Slice and serve cake. Leftover cake can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  9. Make ahead tip: The cake layers can be baked, cooled, and covered tightly at room temperature overnight. Likewise, the frosting and filling can be prepared then covered and refrigerated overnight. Assemble and frost the cake the next day when you are ready to serve. Frosted cake can be frozen up to 2 months if you have room in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving. Honestly, it tastes much better fresh!

Additional Notes:

  1. If you do not have cake flour, simply replace with all-purpose flour – remove 3 Tablespoons of all-purpose flour from the called for amount (1 and 1/2 cups), then add 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch. Sift the all-purpose flour and cornstarch together before using.
  2. Room temperature ingredients (egg, sour cream) are required for the cake recipe. Since using hot coffee/water, you do not want cold ingredients – cake will not bake properly with varying temperatures of ingredients.
  3. Shortening is required to replicate the taste an Oreo cream filling. If you want a thinner filling, that doesn’t quite taste like an Oreo cream filling – use 1/4 cup butter instead of shortening.

Red Velvet Oreo Brownies



Red Velvet Oreo Brownies

Yield: 8″  X 8″


Red Velvet Brownies

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (21g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon liquid or gel red food coloring
  • 3/4 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup (95g) all-purpose flour

Cookies ‘n Cream Frosting

  • 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 and 3/4 cups (210g) confectioners’ sugar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons (30-45ml) heavy cream (aka double cream, whipping cream)
  • 6 Oreos, crushed

Chocolate Ganache

  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate*
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream (aka double cream, whipping cream)
  • 2 Tablespoons (30g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature



  1. Set out the butter you’ll need for the frosting and the ganache, so they come to room temperature as you prepare the brownies.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line an 8×8 baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides to lift the brownies out of the pan. Set aside.
  3. Make the brownies: In a small bowl, beat the 2 eggs together. Set aside. Melt the butter in a large microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until melted. Stir in 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, cocoa powder, salt, food coloring, and vinegar. Mix each of those ingredients into the batter in that order. Whisk in the eggs, then fold in the flour until completely incorporated. Do not overmix. Pour the brownie batter into prepared baking pan. Bake the brownies for 22-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly clean, with a few small moist crumbs. Allow the brownies to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then transfer to the refrigerator to cool completely.
  4. Make the frosting: With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium-high until light and creamy – about 1 minute. Add the confectioners’ sugar and 2 Tbsp cream, beating on medium until creamy. Add 1 more Tbsp cream until the frosting is spreadable consistency. You want it to be thick so that the frosting layer stays neat when you cut into the brownies. Fold in the crushed Oreos. Lift the cooled brownies out of the pan and spread them with the frosting. Stick them into the refrigerator as your prepare the ganache. You want the frosting to slightly chill on the brownies.
  5. Make the ganache: Break up the chocolate into small pieces in a medium bowl. Heat the heavy cream until boiling, either in the microwave or on the stovetop. Pour boiling cream over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Cut in the butter, one small piece at a time, and stir until smooth. Spread over frosted brownies. Chill for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
  6. Cut the brownies into squares, wiping your large knife off with a wet paper towel between cuts so that the layers stay neat. Cover brownies tightly and keep chilled in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Additional Notes:

*I have never had luck making ganache that tastes right or is the correct consistency when using chocolate chips. Please use pure chocolate.

*You may double this recipe in a 9×13 baking pan. The oven temperature remains the same for baking the brownie layer, but the bake time will be 35-45 minutes.
