Oreo Cheescakes

6 Oreo Cookies
4 ounces cream cheese at room temperature (half a pack)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon flour
1 egg yolk (if you double the recipe just use the whole egg)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

chocolate chips or Oreo pieces for toppings

If you want to cheat to bring your cream cheese to room temperature, just remove it from the wrapper and microwave it for about 30 seconds at 20% power.

Preheat the oven to 350. Line 6 muffin tins with cupcake liners and put an Oreo in each.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar and flour until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until well combined. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of batter onto each Oreo.  Bake at 350 for about 14-17 minutes, or until the cheesecake looks set and not browned.  Remove cheesecakes from muffin tins and  top with 5 or 6 chocolate chips or  Oreo pieces while they're still warm.
Once the cheesecakes are completely cooled, store in the refrigerator.
