Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

August 27, 2012

This is the best cookie I’ve had since the chewy peanut butter cookies I made a few months back.  The sweet cheesecake cookie base, rolled in crushed Oreo cookies  creates a crunchy outside and a soft cheesecake inside!

 Like the chewy peanut butter cookie recipe, this Oreo cheesecake cookie is incredibly simple to make and uses only a few ingredients!

I found the recipe for these cookies via pinterest at Table for Two with the original recipe coming from Brown Eyed Baker.

I’ve doubled up the recipe and left out the chocolate chips, I’m thinking that this cookie dough has so many great possibilities…like rolling the dough in pecans and toffee bits! YUM!

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies makes about 40 cookies

    • 1 cup butter, room temp.
    • 6 oz cream cheese, room temp
    • 2 cups granulated sugar
    • 2 tsp vanilla
    • 2 cups flour
    • 20 Oreo cookies
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
Pulse the cookies in a food processor until they’re fairly fine, with some bigger bits remaining.
In your mixer, cream the butter and cream cheese together until smooth.  Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is really fluffy.  Add vanilla.
Stir in the flour until combined.
Form dough into balls (about a rounded tablespoon worth…I used a medium-sized cookie scoop)
Roll each ball of dough in the Oreo crumbs and place on prepared baking sheets leaving about 2″ between each cookie.
Bake cookies for about 12 minutes or until the edges begin to turn just slightly golden brown,
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes on the pan.

    does the cookies spread on its own while baking? or do i have to flatten it out before baking?

      these ones spread all on their own. I often find that I make recipes that don’t call for the dough to be flattened and then they don’t spread for me but I didn’t have an issue with these at all (and they are SO delicious!)

    Sorry I was not impressed by this cookie recipe. The cookie came greasey tasting like there was to much butter and very flat. No cheesecake flavor here. Was disappointed!

      I have made these many times for gatherings to much excitement of the people in attendance. They are supposed to be fairly flat. If we all loved the same things the world wouldn’t be very exciting 😉

    Is the parchment paper necessary, or would foil work as well?

    i found it a lot easier to put the Oreo cookie crumbs in the dough and that put small but a bit larger crumbs than the others on top and mixed it in and than I formed the dough into balls.
