Oreo Cheescake Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 225 grams cream cheese
  • 225 grams unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 15 pieces oreo cookies, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Procedure:

  1. Using a handheld mixer, cream together the softened cream cheese and butter until combined.
  2. Add the granulated sugar to the mixture and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the salt and the vanilla extract and continue beating for half a minute.
  4. Gradually add the sifted flour to the dough. Beat on low speed until it is well incorporated. Don’t forget to scrape the sides of the bowl when needed.
  5. Add the crushed Oreos and fold it into the dough using a wooden spatula. Don’t overmix.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
  7. Preheat oven at 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C for ten minutes prior to baking. Prepare your baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  8. Scoop the dough using an ice cream scooper (5 cm in size) and align them on the baking sheet 5 cm apart. Lightly press down the cookies with a spoon to flatten it a bit.
  9. Bake the cookies for 14 minutes or until the edges are golden.
  10. Once done baking, the cookie dough will still be soft. Let it cool down on the baking sheet for another 5 to 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
