Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes

Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. You can freeze the cheesecakes, in an airtight container for up to 1 month. If freezing, allow the cheesecakes to thaw before serving. I love to have these in the freezer for a quick weeknight treat.

Can I use different types of cookies for my Cookies and Cream Cheesecakes?

One of the great things about using Oreo cookies, is that they are always coming up with fun new flavors. You could use any of the Oreo cookie flavors in this recipe! These mini cheesecakes would be delicious with mint Oreos, red velvet, or even peanut butter. You could also use a different type of generic cookie for this and skip the Oreos altogether.
