Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Today Is

We woke up early this morning to my youngest ask me for chocolate. I realized that hey we have no snacks! So we made cookies =)  You will never ever want to make another cookie again.

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 (the dough will be soft, don' t worry if it doesn't scoop into a well-formed ball, the crumbs will help hold it together)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.

  1. Oh-mi-gosh that looks so sinful and good. Ahhh I am supposed to be on a diet but oh my. I may just have to go get some oreo's just so I can make these.

  2. I have to follow you after this recipe!!! I am sooo going to get the ingredients I am missing during this weeks grocery shopping.

  3. So these cookies don't need eggs, baking powder or a baking soda? They hold together ok?!

  4. Thank you ladies!! and Nope Meg they don't need any of them! They hold together great =)

  5. I tried to make these yesterday and they were a HUGE fail. I followed the recipe exactly and even tried to play with the temperature to see if that would help. They just melted and never formed into cookies. And all the butter made them really greasy feeling.

  6. To the comment above ^^

    I am not sure what happened with your cookies but I followed the recipe exactly and mine turned out fantastic!

    My family really likes chocolate so I added a bit more chocolate chips and I really covered mine with Oreo crumbs and they were delicious!

  7. I am sorry yours never turned out. I don't know what could have happened. Mine have turned out great every time...They are a holiday favorite.

    and to the last comment I am glad they turned out great and that you and your family enjoyed them =)

  8. how many cookies does this recipe make? I'm going to a cookie exchange on sunday and want to make 5 dozens

  9. Just wanted to follow up on my comment. I doubled the recipe, but used a whole pack of cream cheese (8oz) Chilled the dough over night which made it easier to work with and I ended up with 6 dozens of thin mint sized cookies. They were very yummy. Thanks for the recipe.

  10. I made these today and they turned out perfectly. Didn't change a thing. To me, they are very rich. My daughter (who is in college) asked me to make them for her to take to a study group tomorrow where they share food cause she likes them so much. Thanks for the recipe.

  11. So glad your family enjoyed them =)
