5 Ingredient Oreo Cheesecake Cookies!

I was making some baked goodies for a friend and he requested something chocolate/cheesecake/cookies. So after much research, I found these Oreo Cheesecake Cookies. They only have 5 ingredients so I thought I would give them a try.

I bought a package of Oreos about a week before I was making the cookies....which was a bad idea because after those mysteriously disappeared I had to buy another package of Oreos for the recipe!

I doubled the original recipe so I would have cookies for my friend and for me :)

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 Sticks butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
20-22 Oreo cookies, broken into pieces

In my stand mixer I creamed the butter and cream cheese together. Then I added the sugar and mixed well. Once the butter, cream cheese and sugar were combined, I slowly incorporated the flour. Then I mixed the Oreo pieces in by hand.

I put my dough in the freezer for about an hour to firm up and be easier to form into balls. Then I preheated my oven to 350 degrees and lined a baking sheet with parchment paper.

I used my trusty cookie scoop to form the balls, then pressed the cookies into a flat disc shape.

I baked the cookies in a 350 degree oven for about 11 minutes, until the bottom edges were just golden. Then I let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet before I transferred them to a cooling rack. This recipe made about 24-30 cookies.

These cookies aren't too sweet, and they are soft and creamy. I was surprised with how delicious they were for such a simple recipe.
