You can’t beat a homemade cookie, but I do love Oreos. They are nostalgic. I also love using them to make homemade desserts: Oreo Brownies, Oreo Balls, Oreo Rice Krispie Treats, and homemade Peppermint Oreos.

I also LOVE these Cookies and Cream Cookies. They are one of my VERY favorite cookie recipes…and everyone who tries them loves them too!

The cookies are soft, chewy, and filled with chopped up Oreos and white chocolate chips. There is a secret ingredient too…cream cheese! It brings out the cream flavor AND keeps the cookies super soft.

You do have to chill this dough before baking for at least 3 hours, so plan ahead. I promise the cookies are worth the wait!

Ingredients

  • Flour– fluff, spoon, and level! Never pack flour when measuring.
  • Baking soda– make sure it Is fresh!
  • Salt– use kosher salt.
  • Butter– unsalted butter at cool room temperature.
  • Cream cheese– use full-fat brick cream cheese, not whipped cream cheese or low fat cream cheese. The cream cheese makes the cookies super soft. Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature.
  • Sugar– brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  • Eggs- use large eggs for baking.
  • Vanilla extract– always pure vanilla extract.
  • Oreos– chop up 12 Oreos, the cookie AND filling for the recipe. I use regular Oreos, but double stuff or golden Oreos will work too. I also like to chop up a few extra Oreos to garnish the cookies. Gently press them on top of the cookies when they come out of the oven so the cookies are extra pretty.
  • White chocolate chips– Guittard is my favorite brand.
  • Flaky sea salt– for sprinkling on cookies.

    Followed recipe step by step and it came out perfect. Each of my cookie balls were 1.25 OZ, made me about 28 or so; baked for 10 mins. Topped with an Oreo piece and for a little extra oomph- a piece of cookies and cream chocolate !
