These Lemon Creme Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes are a bright, summery twist on a treat you’ve probably seen before. OK, I know I said I was going to ease into the new recipes, but HELLO, have you seen the fun new flavors of Oreos that are out for the summer?! I had to get my hands on some.

So somebody tell me, why in the world would they ever stop making Jell-O Pudding Pops? I mean, weren’t they like the best summer treat ever?! Don’t tell me that they weren’t flying out of the freezers. I mean pudding…  on a stick…  Bill Cosby? Come on. And another one – Magic Middles cookies. Chocolate chip cookies filled with creamy chocolate frosting – hello?! Pure genius! I used to eat off the edges, pull them apart, then lick out the frosting.

Well my mom, she used to love a now-discontinued Girl Scout Cookie – Lemon Pastry Cremes. So when Carrie posted a photo of these new Lemon Twist Oreos on Instagram, I knew I had to buy them for my mom. To be honest, they aren’t exactly the same – a little crunchier than Lemon Pastry Cremes – but they are quite tasty. And as soon as I saw them, I thought of making a summery version of those Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes that you have probably seen floating around on Pinterest or something.

I decided to top them with some Lucky Leaf Blueberry Pie Filling, because I just love the classic combination of lemon and blueberry. And I was too lazy busy to make a fresh blueberry compote. But feel free to leave ’em plain, use a different fruit, or even just sprinkle on some fresh berries.

  1. Maddie

    This is kind of a silly question, but did anyone else’s curdle because of the cream cheese and the milk? Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong? I would love to make them again, I just need a little help!

  2. Oh how I wish that Oreo variety’s available in The Philippines. 🙁 All I see are the chocolate and strawberry only. 🙁 It looks very easy and delicious tho! 🙂

  3. Monica

    Oh. my. goodness. All I’ve seen so far for the summer flavors is watermelon… which were delicious and the pack was gone before the week was out. Now I’m going to have to watch out for the lemon ones. And probably get 2 packs so I can eat one and make these with the other lol!

  4. Dear Brianne, I found your site through Whimsy Wednesday. These look like a fun little treat to have in the summer…and when its this hot out, the easier the better. I haven’t seen the new oreo flavors out…lemon twist sounds good! Blessings, Catherine

  5. Nancy @ gottagetbaked

    These look so adorable and yummy, Brianne! I love the lemon and blueberry together, perfect for summer. I think I’ve seen lemon Oreos on the shelves here (but I may be mistaken since we don’t get nearly all the fabulous foods that are sold in the US). If not, I could probably use the golden oreos and make lemon cheesecake for the same flavour profile. This is a fabulous recipe for your first food post back!

  6. I just love how simple and delightful this recipe is! A very cute and easy potluck dessert that I’m definitely going to have to give a go at making. 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing! (And I’ve yet to try the lemon creme oreos, but they sound yummy!)

  7. Kim@Treats & Trinkets

    I totally have a pack of those Oreos in my pantry. How fun are these cupcakes! I’ll have to try them out
