Oreo upside down mini cheesecakes

Oreo upside down mini cheesecakes

These are delightfully simple to make, and can be made ahead a day (or two) or even frozen for up to 3 weeks! I made these for a bake-sale at church recently and they were quite the crowd pleaser. You can serve them upside down un-molded from the cupcake liners, but I chose to serve them as is, with a dollop of whipped cream on top and some chocolate-n-vanilla sprinkles (from an ease-of-handling cum hygiene point of view). Do try 'em out!
