These Oreo cheesecake cookies are the ultimate cookie for those who love cookies and cream and cheesecake! It only takes 7 ingredients to make these tender, Oreo-encrusted cheesecake cookies.

I love Oreo’s (cookies and cream) and a classic plain cheesecake. Combining those two flavors into an Oreo cheesecake cookie is seriously a dream. The base of the cookie is essentially the cheesecake part — it’s the creaminess and tang of the cheesecake flavor. Then, on the outside, you get the cookies and cream flavor from the crushed Oreo’s along with melty chocolate chips throughout the cheesecake-based dough. Honestly, it’s truly one of the best (and easiest) cookies to make! If you’re a cookies and cream fanatic, you’re going to want to add this to your list.

Baking Tips

  • Do NOT skip the chilling. This is unfortunately a must, but because the cookies are so fragile and don’t have egg in them, they need to set up in the refrigerator otherwise they’re just going to be an oily, goopy mess.
  • Try not to handle the cookies too much with your hands after they’ve come out of the refrigerator. Use a gentle touch when rolling them in the cookie crumbs. The heat of your hands will start to melt the cookies and they’ll lose their shape.
  • Do not use the top rack of your oven for this. These can burn fairly quickly due to the fat content so you’ll definitely want to use the middle rack.

What is the texture like?

Glad you asked because it seems like there are varying results on these Oreo cheesecake cookies. While I’ve done numerous tests, results will vary based on how you measure ingredients and your oven! These cookies and cream cheesecake cookies are extremely tender, soft, and ever-so slightly crispy on the edges. They’re fragile cookies because there is not much binding to hold them together, but trust they come together!

Storage Instructions

Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days at room temperature.

Love cookies and cream and looking for more recipes with Oreo’s?

While I love a good cookies and cream milkshake, I implore you to make my Oreo mug cake and crush these Oreo cheesecake cookies on top. Oh my goodness – the most epic cookies and cream treat on this planet! Of course, cookies and cream ice cream is a classic and a must as well.
