Fact: I absolutely love playing around in the kitchen! Sometimes my crazy cooking experiments don’t work out the way I plan… But other times… THEY DO. I obviously love it when that happens. It makes all the dirty dish disasters worth it 😉

I whipped up these thick and chewy cookies and cream cookies last week and WHOA did they deliver. These soft, chewy, 5-ingredient Oreo cheesecake cookies turned out exactly the way I had hoped. They’re all cookie (think crispy edges and chewy center), but taste as smooth and creamy as cheesecake. They’re totally addicting!

Question: Are you a fan of kitchen experiments? Or do you prefer to stick straight to the recipe?

Ok. So back to the cookies! This recipe is a total gem. Cookies that taste like cheesecake?! I mean, yes-yes-yes all the way home! The fact that they’re a breeze to bake up and only require 5 ingredients only makes the deal sweeter 🙂 I am a huge fan of 5 ingredient recipes! Sometimes minimalism is best.

These cookies do need to cool completely before being removed from the tray, so be sure to have your patience hat ready 😉 It’s so hard not to eat them all straight from the oven – I know! But I promise you these babies are worth the wait. Also, these cookies stay fresh for up to 4 days! Not that they’ll last that long… I suggest doubling or even tripling this recipe if you’re serving a crowd. I made a quadruple batch for nieces slumber party last week (14 boy CRAZY, funny, very load teenage girls – oy) and they devoured every last one… and then requested we make another few batches together. Of course I caved and said yes. 15 girls in a kitchen —> fun and bonkers all at once.

Go bake up a batch now and you’ll see why these 5-ingredient oreo cheesecake cookies are such a winner 😉 xoxo
