- 10 Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
- 12 ounces cream cheese 1 1/2 bricks, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- a pinch of kosher salt
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- zest of one lime
- juice of one lime
- about 3/4 cup lime curd*
- 1/2 cup heavy cream whipped softly with 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 6 thin slices of fresh lime cut in half
Lightly mist a mini-cheesecake pan with non-stick spray. Place the Oreos in a food processor or mini-chopper, and process until fine. Stir in the melted butter, and divide the mixture equally between all 12 wells of the prepared pan.
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Place the cream cheese, sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a large mixing bowl, and beat on medium-low speed until smooth. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula, and add one egg. Stir until combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl again, then add the second egg. Stir in the heavy cream, vanilla, lime zest, and lime juice.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, and bake for 22-28 minutes or until the sides of the mini-cheesecakes are set but the centers are still slightly jiggly. Cool completely at room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours before unmolding.**
Spread about a tablespoon of lime curd on the top of each mini cheesecake. Top with whipped cream. Garnish with a thin slice of lime.
*To make lime curd, follow this recipe, substituting lime for lemon in equal measure.
**This dessert is good cold, but it's even better at room temp! It's easier to unmold them if they're cold, but if you can, put them on a serving dish and let them soften up a bit before serving.
