LOVE these easy, 5 ingredient Oreo Cheesecake cookies from Baker By Nature. I follow her on Instagram and I truly think her recipes are some of my very favorite! I mention her on many of the recipes I share. I doubled this recipe just last night. Visit Ashley's page - her picture is way better and she has so many helpful hints for baking!
5 ingredient Oreo Cheesecake Cookies - adapted from Baker by Nature
4 oz cream cheese, softened
8 Tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour + 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
10 Oreo cookies, broken into pieces
Using a stand mixer, mix cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed. Add the sugar and beat well. On low speed, add flour a little at at time and beat just until mixed in. Take off mixer and fold in the broken Oreos. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 45 minutes or up to two hours. Preheat oven to 350. Using a cookie scoop, scoop a ball and then slightly flatten. It always looks nice to add a few pieces of Oreo to the top before baking. Bake 9 -11 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies... or until edges are slightly brown. Cookies are very soft... so allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for full 10 minutes.
