I probably tell you every year that Halloween is my least favorite holiday. But you know, the older I get, the more I come to appreciate it to the point where I’m feeling pretty OK with Halloween this year. This is probably due to the fact that I am not really being forced to participate for pretty much the first time ever. We’re not having our usual team costume contest at work and instead are just bringing in candy to office trick-or-treat… Which is more than fine with me! And our friends who throw an annual Halloween party have deemed it a 20s party, which means I can put on my sequin dress, curl my hair, and call it a night. Happy Halloween to me.

But I will still never turn down the chance for Halloween candy and pumpkin goodness. And probably if you forced me to put on a costume to obtain said candy and pumpkin dessert, I would do so. But begrudgingly. And since I’m an adult and all, I can eat all the candy and sweets I want, whenever I want. While wearing pajamas if I want. Which is pretty much par for the course for me.

As the pumpkin spice obsession has progressed, I’ve become far pickier about what pre-packaged items I enjoy, but I will forever love Pumpkin Spice Oreo cookies. They’re seriously dangerous for me and probably should not be kept in my house. It’s a good thing they’re only around for a short time and relatively difficult to find.

Instead of gobbling up an entire package of them in one sitting this time around, I decided to make Pumpkin Spice Oreo Mini Cheesecakes. These little treats all involve a cookie, pumpkin spice cheesecake filling, whipped cream, and a candy pumpkin on top! The cheesecake filling is simple to whip up.

I was going to create a Oreo cookie crust, but then decided to just drop the cookies in the bottom of a cupcake paper in a muffin tin. Way easier!

Top with the filling, bake for 20 minutes, let cool, and then top with whipped cream and pumpkins. Plus a little extra cinnamon.

Give me a few of these on Halloween and I am a happy girl. Although, if I received these at a house while I was trick-or-treating, I’d be totally weirded out. I have issues accepting homemade food from many people and I’m pretty sure you learn at age 4 not to accept home-baked treats or really anything unwrapped from a stranger’s house. I do, however, admit that this would be tempting.

These are perfectly portioned, which is both good and bad. Good because one is probably the recommended dessert serving size. And bad because you’ll probably want at least three and then you’ll feel piggy eating three little cheesecakes. But not so piggy that you’ll turn them down.

Being an adult is weird, isn’t it? You’re finally at an age where you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want. But you’re also at an age where you understand nutrition and health and why you shouldn’t eat a muffin tin full of mini cheesecakes or your entire Halloween candy stash. It just isn’t fair.

If you like cheesecake, you’ll definitely be into these little cheesecake bites. The cookie crust ends up a bit more cake-like since it’s not a pre-baked crust; but it complements the consistency of the cheesecake quite well.

And you’ll be happy to know that I still had plenty of Pumpkin Spice Oreo cookies left over after making these.

I know you were worried. I’m considering stocking up before they’re gone for another year (I mean, if they even come back next year… What if they don’t?!), but I also know I may turn into a child and lose my self control. And with a whole ‘lotta candy coming in this weekend through Monday, I definitely do not need any additional ways to tempt myself.

    I totally get what you mean! I can now have sugar whenever I want and how much I want, but sheesh – why do I feel so guilty? (Well, that is, until I put all guilt aside and have a third cheesecake… ;D ) What a fun recipe and creative way to use the Oreos!

    Not a huge fan of Halloween either, but these sure do look good! Wonder how many of these would fit in my Trick or Treat bag? 🙂

  3. How adorable! These are so tempting that I’d want to eat more than one and think that they are little so it’s not too bad, but then realizing that I’ve probably just eaten 3 and it was more calories than a huge hunk of cake, LOL 😀 Funny being an adult, isn’t it? The food guilt factor is way up there. However, it is Halloween and calories don’t count on Halloween. Right? Right 😉 That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! Pinned! Happy Halloween!

  4. what a fun halloween treat! wait, scratch that. i’d eat these anytime of year! 🙂 yum!

  5. Yep! Give me a few and I’m a happy girl, too! So fun, my friend!!
