Sharon's Expert Tips:
Store any leftover cheesecakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for two to three days. If you have any leftover cupcakes, they can be frozen for up to a month. If frozen, allow them to defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
You can also use a mini-muffin pan and mini-Oreo cookies to make delicious mini cupcakes. This recipe makes 48 mini-sized cheesecakes.
It's important that your cream cheese is at room temperature. If it's not, it will not mix well with the other ingredients and you will have lumps. To bring it to room temperature, either leave it on the counter for an hour or so or unwrap and place in a microwave-safe dish, and microwave for 30 seconds.
To bring your eggs to room temperature, either leave them on the counter for an hour or so or place the eggs in a bowl of hot water for ten minutes.
