OREO Mini PHILLY Cheesecakes
These were absolutely fantastic! They were so easy to make and were gone in less than 10 minutes. I followed the suggestions of many other reviewers and added 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract to a double batch of batter. I also used double stuffed oreos that i soaked in milk for a couple of seconds. Also, I used semisweet chocolate chips for the drizzle on the top. Also, i would suggest using foil cupcake wrappers instead of paper ones because the oreo stuck to the bottom a bit. I brought 24 of these mini cheesecakes to a tennis team dinner and everyone loved them! definitely a keeper.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Very good frosting!!! Taste is great. I halved the recipe and used more sugar. Used 8 ounces of cream cheese, 3 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar, 1/3 cup butter, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Found that it wasn't very fluffy but very creamy and smooth. I was expecting a fluffy icing, so that's the reason for only 4 stars. However, the taste was wonderful. There was enough (with the measurements above) to not overly frost about 20 devil's food cupcakes.

Whoopie Pies I
Overall, these were pretty awesome.The cake itself is absolutely fantastic. I did have to bake them around 13 min. for them to cook through. Just to warn you, the cakes do spread quite a bit when they bake. The only problem I had was with the filling. Too much shortening in my opinion. Maybe added marshmallow (the traditional whoopie pie filling) would be better. I ended up adding a splash of milk, a bit of butter, and a tiny amount of flour to cut the sweetness. I am somewhat of a whoopie pie snob because where I live, they are very popular. I've had some pretty good pies but this recipe has the best cake portion hands down. The filling just leaves something to be desired.
