Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes a la Martha Stewart

Oreos are arguably the best cookie ever made.  I have a predisposed adoration for these chocolate and vanilla cream confections due to the fact that my grandfather worked at Nabisco.  Let’s just say as kids, my sister and I played the Memory game, with a Nabisco version that was the cookies as the playing cards, and the whole game board smelled like Oreos.  I have yet to be able to shake this infatuation with Oreos.

At my last job, I was known as the baker in the 13 person office, so when it came time that I received a promotion, the running joke was that the promotion was not official until I brought in a baked good to celebrate, so that is exactly what I did!  Now, I don’t know anyone who could deny themselves of an Oreo, ever! so I decided to make the Martha Stewart Oreo cheesecake cupcakes from the Martha Stewart Cupcake book (a should be staple for the home baker). They were a huge hit!  Even the people who didn’t like cheesecake, liked these cupcakes.  A full Oreo at the bottom of the wrapper, with crushed Oreos in the cheesecake batter.  What could be better?! The cheesecake is a good glass of milk substitute :)
