Individual Oreo Turtle Cheesecakes

I doubled this recipe and got 19 cheesecakes. Everyone LOVED these! I used Smuckers ice cream topping and put it on after I got to church. I made these for breakfast treats for Sunday School. They were super easy to make and tasted like they took a long time to make!

Individual Oreo Turtle Cheesecakes
yield: 9-12 cheesecakes

12 Oreo Cookies
1-8oz. package cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup store bought caramel sauce {use your favorite brand}

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Place one oreo cookie in the bottom of each tin and set aside.
In a large bowl, whip cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Stir in egg and vanilla. Scrape sides and whip again until there are no lumps. Spoon cheesecake batter over oreos evenly. Depending on how deep your muffin tins are, you should get anywhere from 9-12 individual cheesecakes. Top with pecans and mini chocolate chips. Bake 15 minutes or until completely set. Bring to room temperature. Remove paper liners carefully and refrigerate until cold. To serve, place on serving platter and top with caramel sauce.

Tips from reviewers:   double filling—get 20 or more……melt caramels for a thicker topping
