Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe


I came across a recipe very similar to this online, and I knew I had to try it!  Just recently I got my fiance to start liking cheesecake, but the only way he would ever eat it is if I made my mini cheesecakes with an oreo for the crust.  I knew these cookies would be another cheesecake gateway for him >:)

I made a big ol' batch of these bright and early last week to take to work for my patients, and they absolutely loved these!  This just may have to be a weekly cookie recipe for work!

INGREDIENTS:
 
1 stick butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups oreo cookie crumbs
1/2 cup white chocolate chips, melted

DIRECTIONS:

-Preheat oven to 375. 
-In a large bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese until smooth.  Add in the sugar and vanilla and mix thoroughly.  Add in the flour and mix on low until fully incorporated.  
-Stir in the chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of the oreo crumbs. 
-Put remaining 1 cup of oreo crumbs in a shallow dish.
-Roll dough into 1-inch balls and then coat the dough balls by rolling them into the oreo crumbs.
-Repeat with remaining dough.
-Place balls on parchment paper-lined baking sheets and bake about 15 minutes or until edges are golden and centers start to puff.
-Let cookies cool for a few minutes, then drizzle with the melted white chocolate.  (I used a fork; dipped it in the white chocolate then drizzled it over the cookies, nice and easy!)
-To have white chocolate harden faster, place cookies in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

ENJOY!!
