Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

I love classic couples.  Peanut butter & Jelly.  Cereal & Milk.  Scarlet & Rhett.  I have another couple to add to the classics.

Oreos & Cheesecake.

And cookies.

I'm actually pretty indiscriminate when it comes to what goes with my cheesecake.  I love it on its own.  I love it with fruit.  I llloooveee it with chocolate.  Oreos are a no-brainer, but I'd never actually tried it before these cookies.


I had no idea what I was missing.

These cookies are buttery, sweet and loaded with cheesecake-y goodness.  So, if you happen to have some cream cheese and Oreos left over from Cookies and Cream cupcakes, then make these.  If you don't, go buy them anyway.  You don't want to miss these cookies.

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies


Ingredients:

1 stick butter, at room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup crushed oreo 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375.  

Crush the oreos and put them in a small bowl.

Mix together the butter and cream cheese until fully combined and creamy.  Add the vanilla extract and mix, scraping down the sides.  Next, add the sugar and combine.  Mix in the flour.  With a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.

Make 1 1/2 - 2 inch balls with the dough, and roll the dough balls in to the crushed oreos.  Place on a baking sheet covered with either parchment paper or a silpat, and bake for 12-15 minutes.  The cookies should be browned on the edges but still puffy in the center.

  1. I need to make these. Or I need someone to make them for me because I think I might faint when I have to use a stick of butter and 3 ounces of cream cheese ;)
