Oreo Cheesecake Cookies



Today I made these to feed my ongoing fetish with cookies and cream flavors. When I snuck a taste of the dough, I thought they'd be more than excellent cookies. But then after I tasted them baked, they weren't half as good as the dough. Usually this is the case with cookies - the dough tastes better than the actual cookie - don't know why I was surprised by this, then. I think they'd go awesome with a tall glass of cold milk, though.

Yield: About 1 dozen cookies

½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup Oreo cookie crumbs

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and well-combined.

3. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and mix until the ingredients are well-combined. Add the flour and mix on low until the flour is incorporated. Stir in the mini chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.

4. Place the Oreo cookie crumbs in a small bowl. Scoop the cookies into about 1½ to 2″ balls and then roll in the cookie crumbs. Place the cookie balls on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the tops are slightly puffed.

5. Cool on the pan for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
Enjoy!

  2. I'm not sure there's a better combination, Oreos and cheesecake! And in a portable little cookie! Fantastic!
