Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Oreo cheesecake cookies with hidden mini chocolate chips and encrusted with Oreo cookie crumbs

I’ve been on some kind of weird shoe kick lately. I mean, they say a girl can’t have too many pairs of shoes, but I shouldn’t really fall into that category because the only pairs of shoes you can see on me on a regular basis are my black $5 Old Navy flip flops. Yeah, I’m not so much of a “dressy” professional. I work for the government, we dress mediocre. Some people come into the office in Batman pajama pants. NO JOKE. If you want to see hilarity when it comes to “casual Friday’s,” you should come visit me at work. Never ceases to amaze me what goes through people’s minds when Friday rolls around and they decide to show up in pajamas or JORTS. I wish I could make this up.

I’m like a shoe fiend lately because do you know how hard it is to find the perfect purple shoe? I’m trying to find “the one” for my wedding day (I shouldn’t kid myself, I really will probably only have them on for 0.02 seconds and then throw white flip flops on so why am I even bothering with this hunt? I think it’s a fun challenge). In the midst of “finding the one,” I just so happened to have stumbled across many other shoes that are totally not for the occasion but are more for the “omg these are SOOO cute” occasion.

Long story, short: I bought 3 pairs of platform wedges at Target this past weekend. I bought one pair in the store and proceeded to run home and get online to see what other colors they had online and ordered 2 more. Oh, and you know what? Apparently they said they shipped it out on Sunday but I checked tracking today and UPS says they haven’t even received the package from them and only a label has been created.

I’m a tad bit worried because those wedges are SEXY. And my feetsies want them, now! I hope they aren’t lost (I like how I’m totally jumping to conclusions right now – what did we say about anxiety last week? ha).

Oh, and I still have not found “the shoes” for my wedding. Hilarious. Bought 3 pairs of shoes that deem useless for my big day. Oh well :) I have cute shoes to wear to work now, right?

Ok, so these cookies. It’s no secret that I love Oreo’s in virtually any dessert. I’m happily addicted to cookies & creme milkshakes (recipe coming soon), I love Oreo cheesecake bars, I love cookies & creme rice krispies, and now, I’m in love with Oreo cheesecake COOKIES. There’s a subtle hint of cheesecake after the first few bites but then you’re hit with the Oreo’s and the mini chocolate chips hidden in the batter. Oh my, this cookie is a definite winner and I LOVE how it’s encrusted in Oreo cookie crumbs.

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert, Cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12-15 cookies
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup crushed Oreo's (it took about roughly 10 Oreo cookies)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, crush the Oreo cookies until they're fine crumbs. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and cream cheese until smooth and well combined.
  4. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and beat until well incorporated.
  5. Gently mix in the flour and stir in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  6. Using a medium sized cookie scoop, scoop the dough and put it in your hands to roll it into a ball. Roll the ball in the Oreo crumbs and cover the dough well.
  7. Place on cookie sheet and repeat until all the dough has been used up.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes (I had to bake mine for longer because my balls were a lot bigger so it took 20 minutes to bake).
  9. Remove from oven when you see that the edges are getting browned. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

    I love this small batch!
    I’m the same way–not much of a shoe person, then bam! I see some I like and order them in every color!

  2. 08/15/2012 at 8:08 am

    I hate when you check stuff you’ve ordered and there is no shipping label created yet. STOP teasing! Send me notification when they are on their way, bc I will obsess over them until they are on the UPS truck out for delivery.
    I wish you linked to the purple wedges! I feel like I might need them ;)

  3. 08/15/2012 at 8:09 am

    And oh yeah, love the cookies. duh.

    Is it possible to do it without the mini chocolate chips? Looks great, will be making them tonight! I have everything except the chocolate chips.

    • 08/15/2012 at 8:42 am

      Yes, you can absolutely do it without mini chocolate chips :)

  5. 08/15/2012 at 8:47 am

    Youuuuu are the sunshine of my life. Seriously, that’s what comes to mind after reading this recipe since cookies ‘n’ cream is tied with peanut butter and chocolate as literally my favorite combo evaaaaar.


  6. 08/15/2012 at 9:24 am

    Oh I need these cookies in my life! And more shoes, of course.

  7. 08/15/2012 at 9:42 am

    Um…these cookies look fab! I love anything oreo!

    And also…I work for gov’t too. I agree…I love the looser dress code, and I get a real kick out of casual Fridays and even better, employee appreciation week when they have dress down “team spirit day”. Some people paint their face in their favorite football team’s colors for that work day. It’s a little intense. LOL!

  8. 08/15/2012 at 9:58 am

    I need these right now :)

  9. 08/15/2012 at 10:10 am

    I’m amazed at how much cute stuff is at Target – I found a pair of cute gray, velvet wedges for $20 and suede wedge booties for around $25. It’s hard to resist when the prices are so good!

    Also, as soon as you give us that cookies and creme shake recipe, I want to make these cookies and blend one into the shake. Dessert win.

  10. 08/15/2012 at 10:14 am

    you have PLENTY of time to find ‘the’ shoes. calm down lol. and I’m sure the shoes aren’t lost. you’re cracking me up because you’re way worse than me and I didn’t think that was humanly possible ;) and seriously can you pretty please start snapping secret IG pics of your coworkers in their strange getups?

  11. 08/15/2012 at 10:26 am

    Pinned! I think I’m in love.

  12. 08/15/2012 at 10:27 am

    Oh man, I felt the same way you did, Julie! I have so many “fancy” pairs of flats and heels and boots but nothing plain to wear with my loud & crazy-printed dresses or clothes. So, I went on the hunt for a “neutral” shoe, with requirements that it couldn’t be too boring, blend in with my skin, or look grandma-ish. Instead, I came home with two new pairs of boots and six pair of flats, none of which were neutral. Sigh.

    Back to the cookies, they rock! Cheesecake cookies are so delicious and the Oreo crumble around them make them pretty and yummy. Love!

  13. 08/15/2012 at 10:30 am

    Um… I can’t buy oreos any more, because my husband says I’m not allowed. I tend to eat the whole bag of them too fast and then complain about a stomach ache… maybe for my girls weekend I can sneak a package and he won’t know…

    I had to find the perfect shoes too – I found them about a week before the wedding! Navy blue, white polka dots and a yellow stripe – matched the navy/yellow theme PERFECTLY.

  14. 08/15/2012 at 10:49 am

    These cookies really look amazing! The recipe is super easy – really gonna try these out soon! Good luck with the shoe hunt and enjoy every minute of it!! xxx

  15. 08/15/2012 at 11:10 am

    yum! these remind me exactly of the oreo cheesecake cookies i made last month! I love the combo of oreos and cream cheese. you can’t go wrong!

  16. 08/15/2012 at 11:11 am

    I love that you are getting purple shoes for your wedding! And I may have to run out to target to get some wedges myself!;) These cookies sound phenomenal!! Anything with oreos is a winner to me and then to add cheesecake too-over that top amazing!!

  17. 08/15/2012 at 12:05 pm

    SERIOUSLY?!!! This is hilarious that you bought so many of the same pair of shoes. No judging, I just think it is too funny. I love sexy shoes, and will wear them for 5 minutes, from the car to the dinner table for date night. That is about it:) but I still have a closet full of them! These cookies would be great for a dessert on date night.

  18. Oreos are the best!! a package lasts about 2.8 seconds in my house – I always tell myself “just one more” which turns into an entire row (yikes!). So naturally I like any dessert that you can shove those bad boys into ;)

    I work for the government too and I am contantly shocked at what people wear. My department is actually business casual but I’ve seen some bad stuff around other parts. Normally it’s just poor taste and stuff my mom wore in the early 90’s.

    Good luck on finding “the” purple shoes! :)

  19. 08/15/2012 at 12:20 pm

    these look soooo good! I love everything with Oreos.

  20. 08/15/2012 at 1:29 pm

    These look fabulolso! :)

  21. 08/15/2012 at 1:46 pm

    Man, what is it with people that think that casual Friday is an excuse to wear their grungiest clothes? It blows my mind. And keep the shoe habit coming, I love what you are sharing! And I LOVE these cookies!

    I seriously want to grab a few of these delicious cookies to enjoy with my coffee now! They look amazing!

  23. 08/15/2012 at 2:23 pm

    ooh, these look amaaaaazing! oh, + i totally hear ya on the shoes. i looked far + wide to find the perfect shoe for my wedding day + i finally did! it took a lot of looking + searching, but it was so worth it in the end …. even if they flippin’ killed my feet!

  24. 08/15/2012 at 2:59 pm

    Oh no, Batman pajamas to the office? I was just talking to someone about clothes that we wear to the office that SO hope no one from outside the office ever sees us in and if we are in said, “office passable” outfit and we have to go to an outside meeting that we forgot about we get embarrassed and want to run home and change!
    And, I buy a lot of shoes. Mostly because they are completely unaffected by the 5 pounds I will surly gain once I make these cookies on a regular basis :)

  25. 08/15/2012 at 4:37 pm

    Oh man Julie! These look fantastic! I always get my ideas from you! You are full of great ones :D These look super awesome. And OH.EM.GEE; those wedges are so cute!!!! I am so not a dressy girl either, but I think I could be with those wedges… ;) I think I want these ones too:|pdp|13902557|ClickCP|item_page.adjacency&lnk=Rec|pdp|ClickCP|item_page.adjacency

    Ok now this is just becoming a weird comment. Thank you btw for your amazingly sweet comment on my last post.

    Cant wait to see your sweet face soooooo soon!

  26. 08/15/2012 at 8:10 pm

    These look delicious! Love the crushed oreos on the outside!

  27. 08/16/2012 at 1:38 am

    Dude, I’m totally sporting the old navy flip flops too. I wear them until the heal area gets a hole in them. Yeah, I’m pretty bad.

    I’m so happy for your whole shoe shopping spree though! And I hope you get to find “the one” soon.

    And these cookies – holy moly! They look crazy good! Looks like I’ll have to stock up on some oreos ASAP!

  28. 08/16/2012 at 8:10 am

    Oh my, I could get on board with these too! Can’t wait to see the cute shoes you bought! Good luck finding the right wedding shoe :)

  29. 08/16/2012 at 7:06 pm

    I’m a sucker for anything Oreo & these sound amazing! I hear ya on the shoes…I saw those at Target in Greg but they didn’t have my size. :(

  30. 08/16/2012 at 7:51 pm

    I am a shoe person and an Oreo person! I love these cookies :)

  31. 08/16/2012 at 10:27 pm

    Girl…you can NEVER have too many shoes. This is a fact. I actually am glad I am single because that extra closet that would belong to my hypothetical husband? It belongs to my shoes. It’s also the only closet in the house that is remotely organized.

    (I do not have a problem, I do not have a problem, I do not have a problem…)

  32. 08/16/2012 at 10:55 pm

    bahaha! I’m obsessed with shoes right now too. And I totally tried those wedges on at Target the other day after talking to you about them! I already bought my one pair for August so I’m hoping they’ll still have them next month. :P

    These cookies are so yummy looking! Seriously, I think I drooled a little.

    • 08/16/2012 at 11:10 pm

      If they don’t have them next month in stores, check online cause then they might be on sale :)

  33. 08/21/2012 at 9:32 am

    you need to post a pic of those shoes! though you might inspire too much jealousy cute wedge and a plateful of these gorgeous cookies!

  34. 08/23/2012 at 7:19 am

    Stunning, stunning, stunning website, photos and recipes! I’m so glad I stumbled upon your website through Pinterest. This is awesome!

    • 08/23/2012 at 7:46 am

      Thank you so much! :) I really appreciate the feedback!

  35. 08/23/2012 at 10:12 am

    these look amazing!!! :) I can’t wait to whip some up this afternoon!

  36. 08/26/2012 at 3:56 pm

    These cookies are so easy and SO delicious! There are so many great posibilities with the cheesecake cookie dough….i’m
    thinking crushed pecans, toffee bits and mini chocolate chips would be amazing :)

    you don’t need any baking soda or eggs for this?

  39. Karin
    10/10/2012 at 8:19 pm

    The no eggs should be in the title- huge bonus for people who are limited due to allergies.

    Did you use all-purpose or self-rising flour?

  41. Lili
    10/19/2012 at 10:20 pm

    This is a really neat idea. I decided to make them this evening and I was so very disappointed. They didn’t turn out like cookies. More like flatbreads. The consistency reminded me of candy or taffy. I followed your directions to the T so I don’t know what happen.

  42. andy
    11/13/2012 at 1:30 pm

    I am about to make these…look so good and simple, but am guessing that you mean for there to be a cup of flour…it says to flour in inst’s, but isn’t listed on ings list. Just checking

  43. andy
    11/13/2012 at 1:35 pm

    sry there it is…I see it

  44. Amy
    11/13/2012 at 11:58 pm

    I tried my hand at this tonight, I have a friend who I am bribing with cookies for a ride home. Anyway, I was rolling the dough and I am not going to lie, it was too sticky for me so I added enough flour folded into the dough so it wouldn’t stick to my hands, about 1 cup.

    Then I put it on the parchment paper and put the cookies on them to bake. I actually set my oven to 350 because it tends to run a little hot. About 5 mins later the oven had smoke billowing out of it, which is bad news because we live in an apartment building and if we set off our smoke detector the whole building has to evacuate.

    So we quickly fanned the smoke out of our apartment. Then I decide to try again, the whole time I am totally blaming the parchment paper (I buy cheap so I was blaming the brand). So this time I just sprayed and put the cookies in to bake. And then about 5 mins in again the cookies were smoking again.

    What did I do wrong? Has anyone else had this problem or am I not meant to make oreo cheesecake cookies?

    • 11/14/2012 at 8:12 am

      Hi Amy, sorry that happened to you. The only thing I can think of is are you sure it was parchment paper and not wax paper? I only know of wax paper causing the oven to billow smoke. I don’t believe you did anything wrong in your steps with adding extra flour. The only conclusion I can come to is the parchment paper being wax paper.

    11/14/2012 at 12:09 pm

    superstore has these clone (oreo) cookies and has come out with a peppermint one for the holidays. Could I use these instead of regular oreos? Going to try it ..

    • 11/14/2012 at 12:16 pm

      Yeah, go for it!

  46. April
    11/14/2012 at 10:45 pm

    Very disappointed. They were dry and burnt quickly. I took them out early and they still were burnt. I lowered the temp…even then. I followe the recipe exactly.

  47. Amanda
    12/06/2012 at 12:48 am

    I attempted to make these cookies tonight and was having trouble. The seem really thin and greasy. I followed the ingredients but I am not sure what else I can do to try to make them work out. Are they supposed to be a pretty thin cookie? The batter tastes delicious at least :)

    • 12/06/2012 at 7:31 am

      They’re not supposed to be terribly thin but if they’re spreading out a lot, your butter might be too warm. I’m glad the batter tasted good, who can beat Oreo and cheesecake? :)

    12/11/2012 at 3:10 pm

    Love these!! I made them with the golden Oreos and white Chocolate chips sooooo yummy!!! Thanks for sharing!!

  49. 12/21/2012 at 1:55 pm

    Made two bathes of these. The first was incredibly yummy and I got 20 balls. The second I divided the dough in half, then added white choc mint chips to one half and chopped cranberries to the other… and made smaller balls. They do burn easily! But the ones I saved… oh yeah

    Hi! Iam diabetic and I baked your cookies last week ahmm for me it’s too sweet. Can I just put 1/4cup or if it’s okay no sugar? Do I need to adjust the flour if I don’t put the sugar? please reply, thanks!

    • 03/19/2013 at 7:12 am

      I’m not positive how it will turn out if you don’t add sugar, as sugar acts as a binder to all the other ingredients. I don’t know how much flour you’d have to adjust if you have no sugar, I’ve never done it myself so I can’t be certain. Sorry.

    A friend made these and brought them to our camp out last weekend. A-mazing treat! I want to make them for a birthday goodie box. This may be a crazy question, but do you use the whole Oreo cookie? Creamy center too? Or do you separate the cookies?

    • 04/18/2013 at 8:07 am

      Yup, use the whole cookie!

  53. Jasmin
    05/06/2013 at 8:11 pm

    I tried these cookies without the chocolate chips and instead of balling the cookies and rolling them in the oreos, I hand crushed the oreos and folded them into the dough. The cookies came out amazing and chewy. A definite hit. Next time i might add white chocolate chips. Thank you for the recipe.

    Can these be frozen? I would like to make these for my sister-in-laws wedding.

    • 06/07/2013 at 10:01 pm

      I believe they can be. I’ve never tried it myself but I can’t see why they wouldn’t be able to be frozen.

    Hi Julie! Thanks so much for posting the recipe. Any tips for the cookies turning out super flat, though? I followed the recipe (only substituting Spelt flour for AP) and the cookies didn’t rise at all, left a significant amount of grease on the pan, and had some pretty crisp edges. I even chilled the dough. I saw someone else had this issue, but didn’t see a response. Appreciate any tips/tricks!

    • 08/29/2013 at 3:55 pm

      Hey Lauren, I’m so glad you tried this recipe and I’m sorry yours didn’t rise! Mine didn’t really rise that much either, they were pretty flat. I’ve never baked with spelt flour before so I can’t so for certain if that’s why yours didn’t rise. If you wish to try this again, you could try to add 1 tsp. of baking soda. Hope this helps!
