Halloween Mini Cheesecakes

These are supposed to be a gross color they were for a Halloween party :)    

22 mini Oreos
(2) 8 oz packages of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Orange gel food coloring

1.Preheat oven to 275. Line muffin tins with paper liners, and place an Oreo in the bottom of each liner. Crush remaining Oreos in a ziploc bag and crush them up.

2.In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar, and continue to mix until combined. Mix in vanilla extract then add eggs and sour cream, mixing well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl using a spatula, making sure everything is combined.

3.Stir in a small amount of  food coloring, adding a little at a time until the desired color is reached. Add the crushed oreos, and stir to combine.
4.Spoon batter into liners, filling almost to the top. Bake for 22 minutes, turning pan 180 degrees halfway through the baking time. Remove from oven, and cool completely on a wire rack. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, before serving
