Valentine's Day ♥ is almost here! How about making your loved ones some cookies, loaded with crushed oreo's, mini chocolate chips and cream cheesy goodness? :)
These cookies are so. dang. good. I've been making them for a few years now and they always get rave reviews when I share them.. which is sometimes hard to do because I could eat the whole batch by myself : /
I've tweaked the original recipe a few times to get it just right. The one I'm sharing today is my favorite version that creates a delicious, perfect, oreo cheesecake cookie. Yum!
Oreo Cheesecake Cookies
Yields 20 cookies
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup crushed Oreo's
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add in the egg yolk and vanilla. Mix until combined. Slowly add in the flour and salt until just combined. Fold in the crushed oreo's and mini chocolate chips.
Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Gently press down with the back of a spoon to flatten a bit. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden.
Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy! ♥
