Easy Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes are a delicious twist on your standard cupcake. It’s a strawberry swirled mini cheesecake that sits on top of a lemon cookie. What’s not to love?
As far as I can tell, Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes originated with Martha Stewart’s Cupcake cookbook back in 2009. Since then it’s been a popular dessert ever since. I decided to give my own twist on it, and instead of cookies and cream, I have given it my own lemon strawberry twist.
Can I Eat These Warm?Of course, you can, but just like cheesecake it better served cold. In fact, I would even refrigerate them a little bit before I even bit into them.
Can I Use a Different Jam?Yes, you can. We think strawberry jam goes the best though with the lemon sandwich cookies. If you do have a whole bunch of jams already in your fridge it could be a fun experiment to make cheesecake cupcakes with different flavors.
What kind of sandwich cookie should I use?In the photos and video we used a lemon Oreo cookie as our cookie base. We found that it gave the best flavor combination. Lemon paired with strawberry is a winner! You may also use vanilla Oreos (or their off-brand generic counterparts) or even regular Oreos.
