Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Sorry for the gap in posts. We moved to Vegas and I got in a cooking rut. So weird how your greatest hobby can turn into the last priority on the list. But I'm back!! I found these on Tasty Kitchen and made them for a dinner group and got rave reviews. I must admit that they were pretty tasty. I don't know if you've ever tried Chocolate Creme Oreos, but if you haven't you must. They should be illegal! If they are around it's big trouble for me cause I can eat probably 20 without even blinking. I've made the switch to using them for everything and anything that requires Oreos...including my appetite:) Enjoy these cause they'll go fast!!

1/2 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (or I just used regular and chopped them up)
1 cup Oreo cookies, crushed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese using a hand mixer until they are well combined.

Add the sugar and vanilla and mix until ingredients are well combined. Add the flour and mix on low until the flour is incorporated. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough into 1″ balls (I used a scoop to insure all measured the same) and roll in Oreo cookie crumbs so cookie is covered. Place covered cookie balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the tops are slightly puffed.

Cool on the pan for two minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
