Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

If you know me, you know that I absolutely, positively love cheesecake. Cheesecake anything. Cheesecake everything. I have sampled countless different varieties of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory, and I always come back to the Oreo cheesecake. I love many of them, but I’m such a kid when it comes to Oreos and I totally adore them in my cheesecake. I even made myself an Oreo Cheesecake for my birthday a few years back. So when I saw these cookies – essentially a cheesecake with mini chocolate chips, and rolled in Oreo crumbs – they were calling my name!

Truth be told, I was pretty darn tempted to totally ditch the actual cookies and just eat the cookie dough straight up out of the bowl. There are no eggs, so it was especially tempting. I couldn’t stop sneaking tastes! Actually, I think that rolling the dough into balls and then freezing them would make a great center for cheesecake truffles. Or, just a really fantastic treat from the freezer 😉

If you love cheesecake and/or Oreos, you will totally adore these cookies!

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Yield: About 1 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 to 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup Oreo cookie crumbs


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and well-combined.

3. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and mix until the ingredients are well-combined. Add the flour and mix on low until the flour is incorporated. Stir in the mini chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.

4. Place the Oreo cookie crumbs in a small bowl. Scoop the cookies into about 1½ to 2" balls and then roll in the cookie crumbs. Place the cookie balls on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the tops are slightly puffed.

5. Cool on the pan for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

    Yum! I must make these very soon :)


  10. J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) on March 22, 2011 at 8:02 am

    Those sound awesome! I have leftover Oreo-type cookies to use up… no cream cheese, but might be worth a trip to the store. :)


  11. Hungry Jenny on March 22, 2011 at 8:14 am

    Haha, did you say ‘cheesecake’ enough times in your opening paragraph?

    I’m such a huge fan of eggless cookie dough – I can eat the dough straight out of the bow, guilt-free! I am currently finishing up some mint chocolate cookies I made, but these might be next on the list!


  15. Robyn {Planet Byn} on March 22, 2011 at 10:04 am

    my co-worker makes oreo truffles where she basically just mixes a package of cream cheese with crushed oreos, rolls into balls, and dips them in chocolate. they are crazy good! something about cream cheese and oreos is just a perfect match.


  16. Erin A on March 22, 2011 at 11:05 am

    These really do look delish and they remind me a bit of the White Chocolate Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake I posted on my blog not long ago! I used oreo cookie crumbs for the thick crust and then white chocolate cheesecake with a swirl of strawberry. YUMM!


  17. jen @ the baked life on March 22, 2011 at 11:13 am

    I don’t know how I feel about these cookies. The combo sounds amazing, but I dunno…..


  18. Kenni on March 22, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    These look so good! The fact that they’re egg-less makes me think they won’t even make it to the oven.


  19. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite on March 22, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    Wow these look fantastic! I too adore cheesecake. And I adore Oreos!


  20. Laura on March 22, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Cheesecake, cookies & oreo combined! Holy cow yum! Those sound outstanding!


  21. Sharlene on March 22, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Your description of these cookies makes my thighs tremble. I fear they won’t make it into the oven!


    • Beth @bethlivingsimply on November 5th, 2011 at 9:27 am

      I’m totally cracking up over your comment, Sharlene, but I mirror the sentiments. These cookies look TO DIE FOR!


  22. Julie @ Willow Bird Baking on March 22, 2011 at 5:00 pm

    Ohhh yum!! These sound amazing! Must make!


  23. Lisa {Smart Food and Fit} on March 22, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    Omg, what an awesome combination, oreo’s and cream cheese! I’ll have to book mark this one!


  24. Diana on March 22, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Ohhh….yes….I will be making these! You always have the best recipes – just when I think that traditional cookies are getting a little boring and I’m in the mood for something different – BAM – Michelle has something amazing posted!! :o)


  25. Mackenzie@The Caramel Cookie on March 22, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    I love Oreos too! If I made these I think all the dough would end up in my tummy before I ever got around to baking them ;).


  26. Ryan on March 22, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    Oh that’s so funny, I was just looking for a cheesecake cookie recipe! These look amazing! :) I will definitely be making them soon.
    I made your oreo cheesecake last week for my birthday, it was the first cheesecake I ever made and it was so delicious!


  27. Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction on March 22, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    Wow… These cookies look amazing! I would have been sneaking bites of the cookie dough, too!

  31. Amy's Cooking Adventures on March 22, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Delish! Love the idea of truffles!


  32. Sandra on March 22, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Oreos, cheesecake, cookies, truffles…my head is spinning with visions of yumminess. These are divine. You’re been buzzed girlfriend!


  33. Brooks at Cakewalker on March 22, 2011 at 11:41 pm

    The succession of interest in this post grew with each word in the title! Not only do these cookies look sensational, but the cheesecake you mentioned for your birthday must have been fabulous. Back to the recipe, it has a manageable ingredient list that appears to come together easily. Oreos have now been added to my shopping list.


  34. Tony on March 23, 2011 at 1:56 am

    They’re great!
    Thanks for the recipe!


  35. jenna laughs on March 23, 2011 at 9:34 am

    This could become my favorite cookie of all time.


  36. Nuts about Food on March 23, 2011 at 11:06 am

    I think I am going to have to try making these for a brunch on Sunday! Will keep you posted if I do. Great idea.


  37. Lauren on March 23, 2011 at 11:10 am

    Cookies & cheesecake together? Fantastic! These look absolutely scrumptious.


  38. Kelly on March 23, 2011 at 11:52 am

    These look SOO yummy! I will definitely be making these soon :) Thanks for sharing!


  39. kirbie on March 23, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    These look so tasty. I never had cheesecake cookies before. Can’t wait to try these out.


  40. Lori @ RecipeGirl on March 23, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Yes, please! Oreos… cheesecake… cookies. yum


  41. Leslie on March 23, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    Eggs or not..I am a total batter eater. Never been sick in all of my 35 years from raw eggs(oh no, I probably should have not said that)!
    These sound ridiculously amazing


  42. Kelsey on March 23, 2011 at 11:34 pm

    This would be something slightly out of the ordinary to take to a potluck and impress people.


  43. Ashley on March 24, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    I tried making these delish cookies last night but the batter was more of a mousse consistency. I finally got them rolled into balls and covered them with the oreo crumbles but they all melted into 1 huge liquid mess in the oven! HELP! What did I do wrong?!


    • Michelle on April 1st, 2011 at 3:09 pm

      Hi Ashley, Hmm melted into liquid in the oven? If the dough was a mousse consistency it sounds like something may have been off. The dough isn’t too terribly soft, so I would double check the ingredient quantities and make sure your oven isn’t running hot.


      • liz on April 21st, 2011 at 5:20 pm

        i thought they “ran” a little too much for my taste, as well. they didn’t look like yours in the photo, but like splats. they were still AMAZING, just not very pretty.


  44. Paula on March 24, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    I must cook this!!
    I can’t believe it can exist something like that. It won’t be true until I taste it!!!
    And it seems easy to make 😉


  45. Maria O'Shea on March 25, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    I just made these & I doubled it as I needed more than one dozen.Instead of 2 dozen I have 4 dozen yummy cookies & I used only 1 cup of cookie crumbs.


  46. Claire on March 27, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    I made these cookies this weekend – everyone loved them! deeelish!


  47. April on March 28, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    I made these this afternoon! My hubby said they were “horrible”… That’s code for “they’re really good and you’ll be lucky if I leave you any crumbs!”


  48. Cat on March 29, 2011 at 7:45 am

    I so these cookies the other day and they looked so good that I made them yesterday. Everyone loved them!!! Thanks for posting this.


  49. Rachel on March 29, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    holy cow wow! this looks absolutely amazing! i’m surprised that you had any dough left to make cookies. i would’ve eaten them all before the oven was preheated :)


  50. Marie H on March 29, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    Oh lawd!! This looks so good! I too love…CHEESECAKE ..ANYTHING!!!
    Can’t wait to make these…
