Yummy! This is an awesome twist on the oreo cheesecake cupcakes. These were so good and I could barely wait for them to chill. They were a little difficult to get out of the pan without messing up the liner, which is weird because Peabody didn’t seem to have that problem. It might be because I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I halved the recipe and got 10.

Peabody’s 37th Birthday Circus Animal Cookie Cheesecake “Cupcakes”

16 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
¼ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup Greek yogurt (2%)
1 bag Circus Animal Cookies

Preheat oven to 275F.
Line muffin tins with cupcake liners (preferably white). Place a pink (they show up better…cookie racist perhaps?) cookie at the bottom of each cupcake, sprinkle side down. Set aside.
Using a stand mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating for about 1 minutes. Scrape down the bowl after each addition.
Add vanilla and Greek yogurt, beat until incorporated.
Crush up remaining Circus Cookies. You can use as many or as much as you want. I just used the rest of the bag because I really like the cookies. Add them to the cheesecake batter and mix until the cookies are throughout the batter evenly.
Pour into prepared cupcake liners.
Bake for 22 minutes, rotating half way through.
Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Chill in fridge in muffin tins for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Recipe makes about 14.
