Oreo Cheesecake Cookies | Pinterest Thursday | iPhonography

So, my buddy Annie and I were bored one night .... and we were like, "Let's hit up Pinterest to get some ideas to bake cookies."  <--- That's how all good nights start right? ;-)

After swinging by McDonalds for a late night treat, we searched our pins for a fantastic (and quick/simple) recipe in the parking lot of the grocery store. We both happened upon the same pin, Oreo Cheesecake Cookies. I mean hello! You can't go wrong with that combo right?


Here's the original PIN and recipe from Table for Two:

Yield: 12-15 cookies | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup crushed Oreo’s (it took about roughly 10 Oreo cookies)

Instructions:

  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.
 My take on it:  The recipe was simple, easy to follow, and with drink in hand ... we were able to nail this dessert. However, don't eat them fresh out of the oven, they are a different kind of texture and I wouldn't recommend eating them so quickly. They left kind of a weird after taste in your mouth. BUT, fear not. Both Annie and I tried them the following day and viola, they tasted amazing. My family thought so too.
