Pumpkin Spice Oreo Cheesecake bites

PUMPKIN OREO CHEESECAKE BITES

2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1/4 c. milk
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
 1 package Oreo cookies
Whipped Cream, sweetened

Preheat oven to 350 degree's.
With an electric mixer beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the sugar and cream again. Add the eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Beat in the pumpkin, milk and spice. Make sure the batter is well incorporated.  Place cupcake papers in 2 cupcake baking pans. Split apart 24 Oreo's. Place the side with the filling still attached in the bottom of each cupcake liners, filling side up.Pour about 1/3 c. cheesecake batter over each Oreo until the liner is about 2/3 full. Place the remaining Oreo side's on top of the batter.  Bake for 20-22 minutes.
(I ran out of Oreo's before I finished, so I'm missing a few tops)

Cool in pan for 15-20 min before removing and placing on a wire rack to finish cooling. Once they have been cooled completely, store in the fridge. When ready to serve, top with the sweetened whipped cream and Oreo sprinkles.

The original recipe called for a whole cookie in the bottom of the cup

I found after making this batch, that we liked them better with just the 1/2 cookie in the bottom
