Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 8 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 10 Oreo cookies, broken into pieces

Instructions:

  • In the body of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Add the sugar and beat well.
  • Add in flour, a small bit at a time, beating in on low speed, just until incorporated. Fold in oreos until evenly distributed.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes, and up to 2 hours. 30 minutes prior to baking, preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop out 2 tablespoon sized balls of dough, roll them into rounds, and place them on the cookie sheet.
  • Lightly press down on each cookie.
  • Place pan in the oven to bake for 10-11 minutes, or until *just golden at the edges. They will still be very soft when you remove them from the oven - that’s a good thing!
  • Cool on the baking sheet for 10 full minutes, then very carefully transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy :)
