These Cookies and Cream Cookies are full of white chocolate chips and crushed Oreos for true cookie addicts! They are soft and chewy and not cakey!
Hello again friends!
I have to admit, I am a serious cookie addict.
I actually don’t know when this happened. I have always had a major sweet tooth and I thought that I loved pretty much all treats equally (except pie — pie was always bottom of the list for me).
But recently I started to realize that I couldn’t handle excessive sugar like I used to be able to. I’m not sure if I was happy or sad about this revelation, but I realized that I would probably take a cookie over cake anyway.
Okay so maybe a half dozen cookies over a piece of cake, but you get my point.
I think it’s the frosting! Frosting can be so sweet — and while I’m always going to go for the corner piece of cake — I love that cookies are often a little less overpowering in that department. Which means I can totally do the half dozen if no one is looking.
And so since cookies and cream bars are my favorite chocolate bar, I knew I needed to experiment with with a Cookies and Cream Cookie (it just makes sense, right?!) and I’m so happy with the way they turned out! I hope you love them just as much!
Cookies and Cream Cookies
- 1¼ cups (2½ sticks) butter
- 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1½ cups crushed Oreos
- 1½ cups white chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven 350 degrees F., and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer (or with an electric mixer), mix together the butter and sugars.
- Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
- Add the flour, salt, and baking soda and beat on low speed until combined. Stir in the Oreos and chocolate chips.
- Roll the cookie dough into 1½ inch balls and place 3 inches apart on a baking sheet (6 per sheet is perfect). Bake for 8 to 9 minutes until just set in the center (they should look totally cooked, but you do not want to over bake! Over baked cookies will be dry and hard).
