I go through a lot of different cravings. The theme for these past weeks seem to be desserts involving oreos. Last week I made some chocolate oreo stuffed cookies. I still had some oreos leftover and wanted to make another oreo dessert.
I saw cheesecake cookies covered in crushed oreos on Brown Eyed Baker. I knew I immediately had to try these. I’ve never had a cheesecake cookie before but it sounded delicious. Covering the cookies in oreo cookie crumbs makes these cookies look even more appealing.
These cookies are really easy to make. I did have a hard time (emotionally) smashing perfectly good oreos into tiny bits and pieces. The cookies come out really white (like cheesecake), so without the oreo crumbs, I don’t think they would look as appealing.
The cookies came out really sweet and crunchy. I was surprised. I thought the cookies would be more soft and cheesecake like. Also I thought the cheese flavor was a little lost amongst all the sweetness. They are pretty to look at and eat, but they didn’t really taste like cheesecake.
I think these would look great on top of an oreo cheesecake or with some cookies & cream ice cream. The recipe can be found on Brown Eyed Baker. I followed it exactly.
