How to Make Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

These Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes are made up of three simple parts, the Oreo bottom, the pumpkin cheesecake, and the chocolate spiderweb top! For full recipe details, including measurements and baking time, see the recipe card down below. Here is what you can expect when making this recipe:

A Note About Cream Cheese:  

When making any cheesecake, I always use Philadelphia Cream Cheese! That brand just has something about it that makes for the perfect cheesecakes. Be sure to leave it out for a couple of hours to soften.

Preheat + Prep

Preheat the oven and line a muffin tin with cupcake paper liner. Drop an Oreo in the bottom of each liner.

Make Cheesecake Batter + Bake

In large bowl, whip cream cheese and sugar together until smooth.

Stir in vanilla, pumpkin, egg, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour and salt until combined.

Scrape sides of bowl and whip mixture until completely smooth.

Spoon mixture evenly over Oreos. Bake until cheesecakes have set. Remove from oven to cool.

Allow to Cool

Transfer warm cheesecakes out of tin and finish cooling on cooling racks. Gently remove paper wrappers.

Decorate the Cupcakes

I did a fun spiderweb design on the top with melted chocolate but that is optional. See below on how I made the design. If you opt out of the spiderweb design, consider topping these with homemade whipped cream.

Keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve!  Told you it was easy!

How to Make the Chocolate Spiderweb Design

This fancy design is actually quite easy to achieve! But if you are still worried about it, I’ve got step-by-step instructions down below 🙂

  1. Once the cheesecakes are completely cooled remove from the muffin tins and the paper liners.
  2. Microwave chocolate chips and vegetable oil until smooth and completely melted.
  3. Spoon melted chocolate into a piping bag with a small round tip or into a plastic baggy with one of the bottom corners snipped off.
  4. Pipe in a spiral on top of cheesecakes. Drag the end of a toothpick through the chocolate (from the center to the edges) to create a spiderweb look.
  5. Repeat with remaining cheesecakes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Storage + Make Ahead Directions

Since we have cream cheese in these, they need to be stored in the fridge. Store in an airtight container large enough to not disturb the spiderweb design. These will stay fresh for 1-2 days.

Make Ahead – These are great to make ahead. I would suggest making the mini cheesecakes, allow them to cool completely and then store in the fridge until ready to add the spiderweb design or frosting, etc.

    Hi Lauren!!! I just wanted to let you know that your Halloween oreo pumpkin cheesecakes are going to be the “hit” this year for my little italian kindergarten children! Yes,that’s right ….YOUR GOING INTERNATIONAL!!!!!!! 🙂 :):) I’m from Chicago,moved to Italy 42 years ago….miss my never forgotten BEAUTIFUL country…..and now I’m teaching english to…. 38 little curious “volcanoes”….( three to six years old 🙂 ! ) Italy doesn’t celebrate Halloween…..BUT I SURELY DO !!!!! and I get my little ones to celebrate it with me !!! so, this year,I’m going to bake your cheesecakes for them all. You know, Lauren,it’s only about two years that they sell Oreo cookies in the stores here in Italy…..(I’m not kidding you !!!!) It’s been 40 years since I ate my last one……CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT???????? but ,anyway, now they’re here ( AT LAST!!!!) the only thing is that there isn’t the halloween type of Oreos so I’ll probably try to take them apart and try coloring the cream orange….I’m going to try baking them a bit before halloween so I can test the way they come out…..thank you so much for sharing your recipe with … !!Love and kisses…..from Italy……and me 🙂 :):) !!!!!!

    I recently found this blog (and am so in love with it), this is the first recipe I tried. I wanted it for the pumpkin cheesecake combination with the oreo crust, not necessarily for the (totally) cute Halloween theme since I didn’t find it until after Halloween this year. So I didn’t use Halloween Oreos and didn’t do the spideweb. I made this dessert for a neighborhood wine night that we do, and received a mixed review. I had people who loved the Oreo that had softened and absored some of the cheesecake flavor and others (like myself) who loved the pumpkin cheesecake portion but could go either way about the Oreo with it. The Oreo at the bottom was still a little hard on some of the cheesecakes, and perfect with the others. I would want to find a remedy to make it more consistent next time I make them, I may dip the Oreos in milk or something before baking next time to soften them… not quite sure. Overall, definitely a fun recipe and easy to make. AWESOME cheesecake and spices with the pumpkin ( I love that it didn’t call for pumpkin pie spice which I’m sick of 🙂 ) I would use the same concept next time and leave out the Pumpkin until next Halloween. Can’t wait to try another one of your recipes very soon!

    I didn’t expect much with this recipe. I was pretty sure I would not like it in fact. Was I wrong! I am not a big pumpkin fan but it turned out wonderfully! This recipe is a keeper!

  13. Sarah @ Confessions of a Slacker Mom

    It’s possible that I love you and hate you all at once. These just skyrocketed to my must-do list. Going to have to pin this one for sure!

    they look yummy! I’m done with my Halloween baking this year (ie: eyeballs, cupcakes) but I filed this recipe for next year. Thanks!!

    OK, I’m seeing a possible treat to make for my recital on Sunday. So colorful, and frankly, Halloweenish! I’ll be looking forward to the rest of your ideas!

    Oh my gosh. I am not typically a huge fan of cheesecake- but I have to say, these are really cute and the pumpkin makes them kinda irresistible!
