It probably has something to do with the Oreo cookie crust, the crushed Oreo cookies in the cheesecake filling, AND the cookie dough topping. When cookies are invited to the party I can do cheesecake!

Ingredients

For the Oreo Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed Oreo cookies
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

For the cookie dough:

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

For the Oreo Cheesecake Filling:

  • 10 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup crushed Oreos

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper allowing a little overhang. Spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the Oreo crumbs and melted butter together until thoroughly combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 6-7 minutes. Remove pan to a cooling rack. Leave the oven on.
  3. While the crust is cooling, prepare the cookie dough. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt and vanilla until smooth and combined, about 1 minute. Slowly mix in the flour and mix until just incorporated. Mix in the mini chocolate chips. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Mix in the egg and vanilla just until incorporated. Mix in the crushed Oreos. Pour the Oreo cheesecake batter into the prepared crust.
  5. Use your hands to form clumps of cookie dough. Flatten the clumps of dough in the palm of your hands to flatten them out. Distribute the cookie dough evenly on top of the cheesecake batter. You will cover most of the cheesecake batter. It doesn't matter if it isn't perfect.
  6. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until the cookie dough top feels dry and firm and the pan is set. You can give it a little shake to see if it is set. Move bars to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
  7. Lift the cooled bars out by the overhang; cut into squares and store in the refrigerator. Serve cold or at room temperature.

  1. these look so heavenly! I love how you’ve incorporated oreo’s into these bars! cannot wait to try out this recipe! 😀

  2. I have a son who hates Oreo’s and can taste one in anything a mile away. This sounds good but will not make it. Know I am going to miss something I would enjoy.

  3. We don’t eat cheesecake unless I’ve made it, or we’re in NYC at Lindy’s! All other cheesecakes are blah in comparison, and we’re always sorry we even bothered! So if you ever go to NYC…..go to Lindy’s! You won’t be sorry! And thanks for this great recipe……I can’t wait to make them! They look SO yummy! :o)

  4. okay – I am not an oreo person … when making this do you use the cream filling, or just the cookie part?
    looks good – I think I am going to have to try it …. soon!

  5. Instead of making the homemade cookie dough, could you just use the premade cookie dough in the big long tube?

  6. I just made these today and wanted to give my two thumbs up. They look good and taste very delicious too. Since we buy cream cheese in 8 oz. packages in Canada, that’s what I used and it was fine. The only “issues” I had were the baking time was about 10 minutes longer for me, and the cookie crust detached itself from several squares. (Forcing me to eat the left behind pieces…)

  7. Made these yesterday and enjoyed one for dessert right before bed. Couldn’t help but have one for breakfast again. They are as good as they look and sound. I did bake them about five minutes longer because the dough still seemed really sticky and the cheesecake hadn’t quite set, and they were fine.

  8. I made these yesterday for a potluck lunch at my friend’s. They were amazing!!!! Everyone loved them. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe!

  9. Amazing! These were the star of the party and absolutely delicious! So many complements and so easy to make. I didn’t have a lot of time, so I bought premade cookie dough, and yes it works great! Will definitely make these again 🙂

  10. How long will these stay good in the refrigerator? I’m trying to make them for something in advance before going out of town. Can you freeze them?

  11. I tried to make this. I followed the recipe to the T and it came out super greasy and the filling was like egg due to cooking it. Whyyyy?!

  12. Tried making these today. Prep time was significantly longer than 10 minutes and after an hour of cooking, the pan was still wiggly and not sure if fully set. Not sure what I did wrong.

  14. Should there be egg in the cookie dough? I tried making this and it’s in the oven now, but the cookie dough looks more like cookie crumbs than dough! Let me know!

  15. Hi, when I make the whole cake already right should I bake in the oven like water bath or can straight put inside the oven? bake for about 30-35 min will cause the bottom part burn??

    These were really delicious! We used golden Oreos to cut down on the chocolate content – and they were amazing. I love how simple they were to throw together, even with the three separate steps (crust, then cookie dough and then cheesecake). I did, however, think that the Oreo crust had too much butter as ours never quite solidified… I actually only ended up using about 2 or 3 tbsps of butter and it was still quite soupy. Regardless, everyone loved the recipe and I’d make it again!

    My cookie dough layer (top layer) was very dry and powdery. 5 T. butter, right? I sprinkled it on. There was no way I could pat it into anything.
    Flavor was good but didn’t care for the texture of the top layer.
