I had another homeschool mom remark that all my kids know how to bake. It’s true. I like to have my kids bake something for me when I’m responsible for bringing food to an event. They get the challenge, the experience and the compliments when they are recognized for their work. They also get to take part in learning about the gift of service through food. Besides, food is a love language, isn’t it?

My youngest daughter made these cookies from this recipe at Tasty Kitchen, a cooking site started by The Pioneer Woman. From my experience, these are no fail recipes.

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
To die for cookies made from cream cheese and rolled in Oreo cookie crumbs
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Oreo cookie crumbs
  • ½ cup white candy melts (or white chocolate chips), melted (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese using a hand mixer until they are mixed well together.
  3. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix until combined completely.
  4. Add the flour and mix on low until the flour is combined.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Roll the dough into 1" balls and roll in Oreo cookie crumbs.
  7. Place Oreo covered cookies onto prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the tops are slightly puffed.
  9. Cool on the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  10. Once cool, drizzle cookies with melted candy melts.
We used salted butter because we didn't have unsalted and it tasted fine. We also used white candy melts and spread the icing rather than drizzling. White chocolate chips would work just as well. We actually shredded the Oreo cookies in our Magic Bullet that I got at a yard sale. A blender would work fine as well.


As you can tell I love desserts. Here are some of my favorites: Almost Like Candy Bars, Oreo Volcano Brownies, Apple Pie Crumb Bars,and Lemon Cream Pie.

  1. These look amazing! I’ll have to try the recipe. And, you can never go wrong with the Pioneer Woman. Your daughter did a great job!
    I have my own little bakery, so I know that instilling great baking skills is essential. 😉
    Following you through email subscription! Found you via the blog hop.
    Swing by if you can!

    • Thanks for stopping by. Actually, I don’t have my email subscription set up yet but you can follow via a reader (RSS link on my sidebar). Have a great day!

  2. I think I might just have all these ingredients on hand and I was just thinking a cookie sure sounded good!

  3. Ahhh these look SOOO good! I LOVE oreos! 🙂

  4. Oh, I could have one right now! Or two, or three…better not get anywhere near those 🙂

  5. Oh my heavens, those look delicious! (drooling….)

  6. These look so tasty! I’m not the biggest Oreo fan in general, but every now and then one hits the spot. I made some oreo cheesecake cupcakes last year that were only mediocre but these look even better!

    • We love Oreos at our house but these weren’t overwhelming if you’re not a huge fan. Your cupcakes sound good, but I understand when a recipe doesn’t measure up! Hope this one does!

  7. Oh YUM! These look wonderful!


  8. These look amazing.

  9. Amazing the number of recipes I see with Oreos… What’s up with that??! What’s equally amazaing is that people seem to bake fabulous stuff with them… So fab in fact, that I’d like to invite you to come link yours up with us…. http://www.finecraftguild.com/party-35/ (or choose the halloween link-up party…

  10. Looks so good! Just “Pinned” this to try later. thanks for sharing. Warm hugs, Esther

    These look yummy! I TOTALLY agree about having kids help in the kitchen, or any task! Well done, I say! (partying with you at FMFPTY!) ~Amber 🙂

    • Hi, Amber! Teaching kids to cook and help in the kitchen pays off dividends in the future! It’s one thing I want to make sure my kids know how to do before they leave. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  13. I love all things Oreo, I’m sure these would not disappoint! I love having the kids help in the kitchen too. They are still much too young to do it alone, but they will be more than ready when the time comes!

    • I’m glad you’re teaching your kids to cook and be comfortable in the kitchen. It does take a lot of patience and time but it is so worth it down the road!

  14. Kuddos to your daughter! These look wonderful!

  15. Those look and sound SO SO good!! Thanks for sharing! http://moresisterstuff.blogspot.com/

  16. These look fantastic! Way to go teacher mom. Thank you for sharing this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  17. Oh my, I feel like I gained 5 pounds just looking at these. lol Thanks for the recipe.

  18. Yum, sounds great! Thanks for sharing at The Fun In Functional!

  19. These cookies look delicious. We also have a huge tradition of starting kids in the kitchen very early at our house, and cooking is part of our homeschool work quite often– we add it into math lessons and use it with our geography (for example, making tortillas homemade during a unit study on Mexico).
    Just today, my 15 month old helped his grandma make cookies by helping pour the measured ingredients into the bowl and trying to stir them. The earlier you get kids doing (SAFE!) activities in the kitchen, the more likely they are to learn that service and language and get a real heart for it. Looking forward to trying out this yummy recipe!

    • You are a woman after my own heart, Jenni. It does take time to teach kids to cook, but it is well worth it! It is one of my goals for our homeschool, too. It hasn’t been easy and it’s possible in a mad dash but that’s what planning is for! I’m so glad you stopped by my blog and hope you’ll come back again!

  20. Your cookies look and sound wonderful! I love it that my kids bake too. They take such pride in helping!

    • Kids in the kitchen are a wonderful thing if you can stand the mess and fuss! Well worth it, though, as they get older and can be a bigger help. Good for you to involve your kids!

  21. So much chocolate! How can you go wrong with these?
