Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

I consider myself lucky to have stumbled upon this recipe.  I don't know why it hadn't occurred to me before to mix oreos and cheesecake.  After all, there are Oreo cheesecakes in the world.  So why not Oreo Cheesecake Cookies?  These taste fantastic - and just like cheesecake.

I found the recipe here on the browneyedbaker blog and she adapted the recipe from Tasty Kitchen Blog.



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


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

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

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.

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.

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


I actually didn't use Oreos (oops).  Instead, I used the Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers.  They're pricey but oh, so worth it.  They have a superior chocolatey flavor when it comes to cookies.  I used these in almost every recipe that calls for chocolate crumbs or cookies.
