Mini mint oreo cheesecake bites
- 7.5 oreo mint thins yes that's right, 7.5, so you can either eat half a cookie while making them or put it away for another time
- 1 Tbsp melted reduced calorie margarine
- 3 oz softened light cream cheese
- 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp flour
- 1.5 Tbsp liquid egg whites
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 1 Tbsp milk
- Preheat oven to 350F, line a 12 hole mini muffin tin with paper liners.
- Take 6 of your oreo's (leave 1.5 aside for topping) separate them and place the cream center in a small bowl.
- Crush up your cookie pieces into a crumb, mix cookie crumbs with melted margarine.
- Divide your cookie crumbs mixture over your 12 paper liners, pushing down on them.
- Bake in oven for 5 minutes then set aside, leave oven on.
- In a bowl beat together your cream cheese, sugar, flour, egg whites, peppermint, oreo cream centers and milk. Spoon into your 12 muffin cups and bake in oven for 14 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then chill in fridge for at least an hour.
- Carefully cut your remaining 1.5 oreo cookies into 12 pieces (8 per full cookie) and when ready to serve cheesecakes top with a little whip cream and cookie piece. Makes 12 mini cheesecakes at 2sp or 1pp each
- *Please note, don't add whip cream until ready to eat as it will melt. Also if you can not find the thin mint oreo's you can use regular oreo mint cookies, just less, but you would have to check point differences though.
