Chewy Cookies and Cream Cookies

Recently the Oreo cookie celebrated it’s 100th Anniversary. I had no idea the cookie had been around so long. It’s quite impressive given how popular the cookie still is. Of course my mind has been on oreos and I wanted to make some recipes.

So I made these cookies and cream cookies. Soft and chewy cookies with cream and chocolate in every  bite. These came out exactly how I had hoped.

These were really easy to make. And I love the look of the oreo cookie pieces throughout. This is one of my favorite oreo recipes I’ve made to date.

Cookies and Cream Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 12 mins

Total Time: 27 mins

Ingredients:

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
about 14 oreo cookies

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients until dough is formed. Add oreos directly into batter and beat on medium high speed until oreos are crushed and blended into dough. Roll dough into balls about 1 1/2 inch in diameter and place onto ungreased cookie sheets lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart.
3. Bake about 11-12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden around the edges. Cookies will be initially puffy when taken out from oven and will flatten after they cool.

    OMG are these anything like the secret cookie service’s cookies? I noticed you didn’t use any brown sugar and basically used most of the same ingredients!

    • Kirbie replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 9:33 am

      I don’t think they really tasted like the secret service cookies. They are still good though! I used a chewy sugar cookie base that I used to make my green chocolate chip cookies for St. Patrick’s Day last year to make this oreo version.

    PS did you try the birthday cake Oreo? It’s pretty good. :)

    • Kirbie replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 9:37 am

      No! I haven’t seen it. All I saw were mint ones and yellow ones for Spring.

    I like the look of those cookies! I’ll have to try making it next time. I just need to get Oreos now! Mmmmm!

    • Kirbie replied: — March 20th, 2012 @ 8:57 am

      These cookies are good. I love cookies and cream. It’s like eating the ice cream but in a cookie form. I had three last night because I kept seeing the plate of them.

    Iris — March 20, 2012 @ 10:07 am

    Ohhh, interesting. I think I’ll have to play around with the recipe to see if I can make it similar to the secret service cookies. >:D

    And the birthday cake oreo is pretty good! (if you like the funfetti type of frosting) It looks like this: http://captaincrabapple.wordpress.com/2012/03/11/birthday-cake-oreo/ ;)

    • Kirbie replied: — March 20th, 2012 @ 12:20 pm

      You really like the secret service cookies don’t you? ;-)
      Okay I need to make a trip to CVS to find these!

    Cookieception. I’m making these for sure. Saw in on pinterest – that many people just can’t be wrong.

    • Kirbie replied: — March 20th, 2012 @ 12:22 pm

      I’m happy people are interested! It was totally on a whim recipe. I had about half an hour and churned these out. Loved the results!

    [sorry for all these errant comments instead of a nice, tidy thread... but there's no reply button on my end... unless I'm blind, which is entirely possible at the moment, haha... finals week]

    YES I LOVE THEIR COOKIES. I’ve even gone ahead and adapted that Jacques Torres recipe a little to mimic their mint chocolate chip cookies. XD I really don’t know why I’m so obsessed… I think it’s because I want to see if I can, haha.

    But yes, try CVS! Hopefully they still have them… if not, I’d suggest Walmart or something like that.

    • Kirbie replied: — March 21st, 2012 @ 8:24 am

      You like their cookies more than Jacques Torres recipe? Wow. Jacques Torres recipe is my favorite of all time. I’m going to CVS this weekend to look for the oreos. Good luck with finals! So does the Cookie Guy know how much you love his cookies? You must be one of his biggest customers.

    Lindsay — March 21, 2012 @ 10:38 am

    To the person who loves Secret Cookie Service, try this to replicate their cookies: I used 14 double stuffed Oreos in this recipe. I also added milk to the completed dough (I would say between 1/4-1/2 cup, but don’t quote me on that). It was enough milk to make the dough decently wet (I could still roll it into balls but it was sticking a bit to my hands). If it gets too wet just add a bit of flour; from other cookies I make the milk seems to be key to getting that dense, soft taste (you might also want to try adding pudding mix, but I didn’t do that for this recipe). Also, I crushed the Oreos in a bag and then put it into the mix instead of blending it in like the recipe calls for (that’s only because I don’t have an electronic mixer, so the entire thing was done by hand, not sure if that makes a difference.) Additionally, I used white cane sugar (the brand from Malawi) and almost completely melted all the butter instead of just softening it. The cookies turned out quite dense, tasty & similar to what you can order, and definitely makes way more at a cheaper price (!) – brought some to my studious friends later on and they thought I had just bought some from the Secret Cookie Service and put them on a plate. Maybe you’d like to give it a try :)

    Thanks Kirbie’s Cravings for the great recipe!…The 100 year anniversary of Oreos never tasted so good <3

    • Kirbie replied: — March 21st, 2012 @ 11:16 am

      Thanks for providing your variations to recreate the Secret Cookie Service cookie. Though I kind of like my recipe as it is a little more. haha. ;-) But everyone has their own preference.

    Oops, typo – natural cane sugar.

    Iris — March 21, 2012 @ 1:53 pm

    Hahaha, no I don’t like their cookies more than the Jacques Torres recipe – I just used that recipe and added Andes mints in because I knew the Jacques Torres recipe made amazing chocolate chip cookies, so I decided to use it until I found a different recipe that was more like the secret service cookies. :p And awww, thanks! Only one left to go before I can head back home to the Bay Area. (LOL I’ve only ordered twice and to be honest, I only really love their chocolate chip and mint chocolate chip XD but shhhhh)

    And Lindsay, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I’m really excited to try your version as well as Kirbie’s to see the difference between the two. Double-stuffed oreos sound amazing, hehehe.

    • Kirbie replied: — March 22nd, 2012 @ 8:14 am

      I’ve only had the cookies twice also. I’m sort of forgetting how they taste. I need to refresh my memory. haha.

    Iris — March 22, 2012 @ 3:27 pm

    LOL I suggest you do it next week (after finals week is over) since they’re currently bogged down with orders every night and you’ll probably end up getting your order later than usual. :)

      Haha. I hope you like them! They didn’t last long with my family.

    Do you need to use the parchment paper?

    • Kirbie replied: — March 29th, 2012 @ 8:26 am

      Yes you need parchment paper to help the cookies bake evenly and so they don’t stick to your baking pan. You can also use a silpat mat if you have one.

    1ChefMommy — May 18, 2012 @ 7:17 pm

    I made these tonight. The batter seemed dry; I ended up adding more butter. I’ll post it on my blot soon. Thanks for the great idea. 1chefmommy.blogspot.com

    • Kirbie replied: — May 19th, 2012 @ 4:28 pm

      Hmm, I haven’t had any issues with the batter being too dry. I mean, it is easy to work with, but the cookies don’t come out dry.

  15. 15

    1chefmommy — May 21, 2012 @ 11:14 am

    Made them a second time with the golden oreos and they were fine without the extra butter. Maybe the first day was just a dry day? Still a good recipe. :)

    • Kirbie replied: — May 21st, 2012 @ 2:58 pm

      Ah interesting. I’m glad they worked out without the extra butter!

    michelle — June 23, 2012 @ 8:47 pm

    These look great! And they do sound fairly easy to make…
    I’d love to make them, and wanted to ask if you may be willing to say how the flour should be measured, or maybe how much it should weigh? I hope you can help.
    Thank you for sharing this and the rest of your recipes!

    • Kirbie replied: — June 23rd, 2012 @ 11:27 pm

      Hi Michelle, it says on the recipe that it’s 2 and 3/4 cups flour.

  17. 17

    michelle — June 24, 2012 @ 1:42 am

    Hi Kirbie,
    and thank you for your kind response.
    I realize it’s 2 3/4 cups, but there are different ways to measure it – either scoop the flour or spoon it into the cup – which result, you’ll be surprised, in a different amount.
    Scooping it into the cup can yield about 5 ounces per cup, while spooning about 4.5 ounces. That’s why I use a scale to measure it.
    Sorry to bother you again, but can you perhaps say how you measure it?
    Thanks, again!

    • Kirbie replied: — June 24th, 2012 @ 12:13 pm

      Hi Michelle, I scoop mine directly with the cup. For any recipe on my blog where I use measurements in cups, that’s my method. I do realize that they yield different amounts if you spoon it in versus direct cup scoop. My understanding has always been that most recipes are requiring you scoop directly with the dry measuring cup unless specified differently. Anyway, hope this helps!

  18. 18

    michelle — June 25, 2012 @ 10:27 am

    Thanks, Kirbie!
    That helps a lot.
    I’m looking forward to making them, and hope to get it right…
    Thank you :)

    Shayla — July 3, 2012 @ 12:06 pm

    Tried this recipe today. Mine were not chewy at all. Hard in fact and I followed your recipe to a tee. My grandma says its because there is no brown sugar in them…

    • Kirbie replied: — July 3rd, 2012 @ 12:40 pm

      You can definitely achieve chewy cookies even without the brown sugar. I make chewy sugar cookies all the time with white sugar only. I’m not sure where it went wrong for you unfortunately. I’ve done this recipe multiple times with no problems and have had several readers make it with no issues either. It seems like either not enough butter, or maybe your baking powder or baking soda is no longer fresh.

    Corlie — August 13, 2012 @ 9:41 am

    Hi, I’ve made 2 batches of this recipe, and mine came out black on the bottom both times! The cookies are fine (not burnt), but I continuously burn the bottoms. I’ve adjusted the time, moved the rake up, but still came out black. And tricks or suggestions for me?
    Thanks!

    • Kirbie replied: — August 13th, 2012 @ 10:25 am

      Hmm, that’s strange. I haven’t ever had that issue. What do you bake on? parchment paper? I usually use silpat mats. I find cookies bake more evenly and tend not to stick or burn at bottom. Also I used to user cheaper basic baking trays, and I found those sometimes bake unstable cookies. Later I bought more heavy duty trays and that helped.

  21. 21

    Corlie — August 13, 2012 @ 10:34 am

    Thanks Kirbie – I baked them on parchment paper (as instructed in recipe), but I think I’m going to give them one more try on just my cookie sheets. I’ve never had any of my other cookies burn this way… maybe it’s time for new bakeware :D

    • Kirbie replied: — August 13th, 2012 @ 11:05 am

      I hope it turns out well on your cookie sheets! I really am not sure why they are turning black.

  22. 22

    Ruth — September 18, 2012 @ 8:20 pm

    Hi, I made these cookies today and they are really chewy, but I have the same problem as Corlie, the bottom of the cookies always turn black and mine’s so much darker(brown) than your pictures. Also they’re thicker, why is that? :|

    • Kirbie replied: — September 19th, 2012 @ 8:27 am

      It sounds like your oven temperature may be too high. Try lowering it about 25 degrees. As for it being thick. I’m not sure why because mine always sink and spread. Try pressing down on the dough so it’s flatter before baking and see if that helps.

    If someone liked cookies and cream ice cream would they like this??

      I think so? I like both

  24. 24

    Corlie — October 14, 2012 @ 4:56 pm

    Alison – I made these for my fiance, who LOVES cookies and cream everything… and said they were “Good, but why take an already great cookie (Oreo) and turn it into an ok cookie”… However, I LOVED them and ate them all, in one sitting :S

    Ruth – I set my oven to a lower temp and just watched them carefully so they didn’t burn, worked perfect.

    • Kirbie replied: — October 15th, 2012 @ 8:29 am

      I personally like these better than just eating Oreos. hehe. Glad you like them too!

    Yii-Huei — November 2, 2012 @ 3:13 am

    Thanks so much for answering my comment the other day from the other cookies and cream cookies, I decided to go with your opinion and made these instead! They are SO delicious, I literally can’t stop eating them! I was just wondering though, do you think it’d be okay to reduce the amount of sugar? Maybe to 3/4 or 1/2 cup or is that too drastic? Or should I just reduce it to about 1 cup?

    • Kirbie replied: — November 2nd, 2012 @ 8:36 am

      Hi! So glad you liked it. I would recommend reducing it to 1 cup and see how it is. I think if you do 3/4 or 1/2 it might be too drastic.

  26. 26

    Yii-Huei — November 5, 2012 @ 1:49 am

    Okay, next time I’ll probably just reduce to 1 cup! Thanks so much!

    I made a blog post about the cookies! Mine look a lot different though, maybe because I put a lot more oreos lol! http://aroundleglobe.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/cookies-and-cream-cookies.html

    • Kirbie replied: — November 5th, 2012 @ 9:20 am

      Yours look good! A little darker, probably because of the Oreos, but still yummy!

      Sorry you feel that way. I’ve made them many times and people always really like them.

    Div — November 22, 2012 @ 7:41 pm

    Hi!!

    I saw these on pinterest and had to make them, cookies and cream anything are by far my favorite. Anyways, the batter is delicious, the cookies are delicious, however line were only soft for about 5 minutes, then after they cooled they were hard and crunchy, still taste awesome but not a crowd pleaser if they’re rock solid. Anyways, I’ve been having this issue with other cookies I’ve made, im not sure if its because I used margerine instead of butter? I even tried putting bread in my container with the cookies but even that isn’t helping. Any advice? Either way this recipe is fabulous!!

    • Kirbie replied: — November 22nd, 2012 @ 11:26 pm

      Yes, the margarine does make a difference! That is probably why your cookies are having issues. Definitely use butter if you can

    Cams — November 27, 2012 @ 2:01 am

    I will be giving this as a gift in a few days, should i keep it in the freezer until then? Or would room temperature be just fine?

    • Kirbie replied: — November 27th, 2012 @ 9:46 am

      Room temperature should be fine for a few days. If you put them in the freezer it might make them too hard even after they are defrosted.

    Cams — November 27, 2012 @ 2:38 am

    Is it okay to use cornstarch as a substitute for flour?

    • Kirbie replied: — November 27th, 2012 @ 9:46 am

      No! Cornstarch is definitely not a substitute for flour.

    Holly — December 3, 2012 @ 12:47 pm

    I’m testing this out for a cookie exchange. My husband actually did a test batch for me today (love him), although he didn’t read the “directions” and mixed everything at once. Does that make much difference?

    End result was fluffy cookies, crispy on the outside, chewy inside. They are still cooling so I’m not sure if they will stay soft inside yet.

    What is the key to them flattening out?

    Thanks in advance!!

    • Kirbie replied: — December 3rd, 2012 @ 1:46 pm

      Hmm, I think perhaps because he mixed all the ingredients together at once, may be the reason why your cookies aren’t flattening as much. My cookies naturally flatten out, but if you are having issues, try making the dough balls at least 1 1/2 inches thick and you can help the flattening process by pressing down on the cookie balls before baking, so they are more like discs going into the oven.

    tnx!

    Trina — July 27, 2013 @ 6:17 pm

    Okay, I changed the recipe some because I knew I did not want it flat. So I subbed half of the white for brown sugar, added a teaspoon of salt, an extra 1/4 cup of flour and used the peanut butter Oreo’s. I truly enjoyed the recipe, the cookie has a crisp outside and chewy inside. The reasons for the changes was just to add bulk to the cookie. The cookie tasted better when cool, I could taste the peanut butter.

    • Kirbie replied: — July 28th, 2013 @ 10:13 pm

      Interesting changes!

    Chimps — August 25, 2013 @ 6:37 am

    Hello! I followed your recipe and added 1/2tsp of salt to the dry ingredients. The batter came out dry and when I rolled the cookies into balls, it fell apart…is it okay if I lessen the flour? Or add more butter? When it baked, the cookie didn’t spread out the way it looked like in your photos…I tried to press them flat instead. But still it’s too thick for a cookie. Any suggestions? This is actually the first time I failed with a cookie recipe… :( thanks.

    • Kirbie replied: — August 26th, 2013 @ 11:44 am

      I’d try adding a little more butter. And just to make sure, you are adding 2 cups plus 3/4 cup flour and one entire cup of butter (2 sticks)?

    Natalie — August 28, 2013 @ 9:38 pm

    Hi! I tried this recipe this morning…it came out a success! I never really like the cream part of the oreos but this cookies recipe made it perfect. It’s also the right amount of chewiness and crunchiness. Would be better if the dough is slightly sweeter… I made more than 30 cookies with this recipe. thanks a lot!

    • Kirbie replied: — August 28th, 2013 @ 9:43 pm

      glad you like it!

    Chimps — August 28, 2013 @ 11:35 pm

    Yes, I followed all the measurements in your recipe except that I added a teaspoon of salt…so I’ll try to bake this again this weekend, I hope it’ll come out better this time. How many tbsp of butter should I add? And what should be the texture of the batter looks like? The other cookie recipes I tried were greasy and sticky when I roll the into balls. Thank you. :)

    • Kirbie replied: — August 29th, 2013 @ 11:08 pm

      It shouldn’t be greasy, but it shouldn’t be dry either. So I would add just enough butter so that the dough is no longer dry

  41. 41

    Emma — September 21, 2013 @ 8:55 pm

    This recipe is the bomb. I followed all directions just as you stated, except I used peanut butter Oreos instead of the plain ones. They actually turned out perfect! yay

    sammy K. — November 23, 2013 @ 3:51 pm

    These were so good. I was looking around for this type of cookie recipe and ultimately chose this one because of a comment you made saying you were using a chewy sugar cookie base – so glad I did. Followed the recipe to a T except I added half a bag of white chocolate chips. Yum

    Made these yesterday with the addition of maybe around a 1/2 C. Chocolate chunks, and for the sugar, I cut it to 1 C. using half white and half brown. I found the dough recipe to be a bit dry (hardens a LOT after cooling, and I for my last batch I only left in the oven for about 7.5 minutes. Still had a nice chewiness in the center, but for next time, I would use only 2 C. flour. Also, mine did not spread at all. Still very happy with the turn out! Thank you. Your pictures are great! And I was happy to see your recipe NOT using a pudding mix – definitely not against the mix, but didn’t have any in the house! I may be back to stalk other recipes on this fantastic new-found blog!

    • Kirbie replied: — February 16th, 2014 @ 8:44 am

      I wonder if the tweaks to the sugar might have caused the dough to be dryer. I just had a recipe I was experimenting with recently and I was surprised that when I added more white sugar it made the dough much more moist, so cutting down on the white sugar might have caused the dryer dough and for it not spreading as much because I’ve found that using white sugar spreads much more than brown.

    Nikki — February 17, 2014 @ 11:08 am
