Cheesecake can be difficult to make, especially if you’re looking for that perfectly smooth, creamy top.


These indulgent pumpkin bites are easy to make with your kids. Even if it comes out of the oven looking less than perfect, a healthy dose of kid-favorite Oreo cookies and Cool Whip will cover it up.


Add fun sprinkles, gummies or fall-themed decorations for the perfect classroom treat or potluck dessert.

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 24 Oreos, split in half

  1. Beat the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.
