Cookies and Cream Cookie Recipe

This Cookies and Cream Cookie Recipe also known as Cookies n’ Cream cookies is one that I’m keeping forever! I love all things cookies and cream flavored and anything that has to do with Oreo’s so these are my kind of cookies.

Soft, chewy, and bursting with cookies and cream flavor from the Oreo pieces and white chocolate chips. Made in less than 30 minutes from start to finish so these can be made last minute. 

If you love cookies and cream flavored treats like me, try my Oreo Cookie Bars, Mini Oreo Cheesecakes and Oreo Cookie Truffles.

Key Ingredients

  • Flour: All-purpose flour works best. Spoon and level the flour when measuring it; don’t scoop it out of the bag using the measuring cup. This way, you won’t accidentally measure out too much. 
  • Baking soda & baking powder: Used as a leavening.
  • Cornstarch: We just add a touch of cornstarch to make these cookies extra soft and tender.
  • Softened Butter: We use unsalted but you can also use salted butter, just be sure to omit adding the salt to the butter mixture.
  • Granulated white sugar: Adds sweetness and helps make the cookies chewy.
  • Egg: Used to bind the ingredients together. It’s best if the egg is at room temperature so it can blend in with the cookie dough better.
  • Vanilla extract: Enhances and adds a warm flavor.
  • Oreos: The star ingredient! Use any brand you love. You want to chop the cookies into small and large chunks. You can place the cookies in a ziplock bag and roll with a rolling pin to create crushed Oreos, or coarsely chop the cookies with a knife.
  • White chocolate chips: You could also use white chocolate chunks. The white chocolate adds to the “cookies and cream flavor”. Alternatively, you could chop up a couple Hershey’s Cookies n Creme Candy bars (my favorite candy bar!)

How To Make Cookies and Cream Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat/silicone baking mats. Set aside.

Combine Flour Mixture. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Beat Butter & Sugar. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer or a stand mixer, combine butter and sugar on medium speed until combined.

Add Egg & Vanilla Extract. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix together until smooth and there are no lumps. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients. Reduce to low speed and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Continue to mix together just until cookie dough forms then add the Oreo cookie chunks and white chips until evenly dispersed.

Scoop Cookie Dough Balls & Bake. Use a small cookie scoop (equivalent to 2 tablespoons of dough) to scoop cookie dough and round with your hand. Place cookies on prepared baking sheet and gently press down on the cookies just a bit. You can place a few extra Oreo pieces and white chocolate chips on top of the cookies (optional). Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the sides are set. It’s ok if the centers of the cookies look underbaked. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling wrack. Enjoy!

Freaky Friday

Freaky Friday bannerPin

YAY! It’s time again for another fun blog hop that’s been hosted by my sweet friend (and amazing cook and baker) Michaela from An Affair From the Heart.  This freaky Friday round is a cookie exchange edition where you’ll find plenty of delicious cookie recipes to make this holiday season. 

This is how a blog hop works, each food blogger is assigned to another food blogger and we select a cookie recipe from their blog, recreate it, photograph it, try it, and then share it with you all! 

Fresh April Flours

This Cookies and Cream Cookie recipe is from Lynn and Fresh April Flours. I was thrilled when I found out I was assigned to Lynn’s blog because I love and adore all of her delicious and beautifully photographed recipes.

Lynn’s background is so fascinating to me because she didn’t learn how to bake until 2010! I would have never guessed that because if you look at her blog, she is a baking queen and I am truly inspired by her self-taught food photography. Lynn’s a previous owner of her cake shop, has a science background, and is now a full food-blogger like mffloyself.

I was in love with so many of her cookie recipes and it was hard to pick just one! I instantly knew I had to make these Cookie and Cream cookies because we love Oreo desserts and they surely hit the spot. Lynn’s other cookies that I want to make this season are her Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies, Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies, Salted Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles, and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies.

I’m also so impressed that Lynn has several ebooks, baking courses, and has been featured on Good Morning America, Woman’s Day, and Woman’s Health! Be sure to check her out and all of her mouth-watering recipes that include both sweet and savory.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Quick and easy: These are the best cookies to make if you’re in a rush. You don’t need to chill the dough so you can make these cookies in less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
  • Cookies and Cream Flavor: If you’re a cookie and cream lover, you will love every bite of these cookies. They are filled with chunks of Oreo cookies and white chocolate chips.
  • So much texture: These chewy cookies are soft, buttery, have slightly crispy edges, and crunch from the cookies.
  • Get the kids involved: Let the kids scoop out the dough or add the Oreo cookie chunks and white chocolate chips to the dough.

Make Cookies and Cream Bars

If you prefer to have them in a bar form instead of cookie form, it’s easy to do. Add the cookie dough to a 9×9 inch baking dish lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes longer than the recipe calls for- but always be sure to check since every oven is different.

Recipe Tips & Variations

Golden Oreos: Swap the chocolate Oreo cookie for golden Oreos to add a vanilla flavor.

Add sprinkles: Bake these cookies for any holiday! Add Halloween sprinkles, Christmas sprinkles, rainbow sprinkles, or any kind of sprinkles to the cookie dough and tops of cookies. You could also use holiday themed Oreos instead of the classic Oreo cookies.

Room temperature ingredients: It’s important that your eggs and butter are at room temperature. They incorporate with the other ingredients so much better then when they are cold. This will also help your cookies stay tender and soft.

Chocolate chips: You can swap the white chocolate chips for milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, caramel chips, mini chocolate chips, or chop up a cookies and cream bar instead.

Leftovers & Storage

To-store: Store cookies at room temperature in an airtight container or large ziplock bag. They will stay fresh for 7 days. They will still be ok to eat after 7 days but they may start to get crumbly and stale. 

To-freeze: Allow the baked cookies to cool completely. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes to flash freeze or harden. Once hard, place the cookies in a large freezer bag or stack in an airtight container. Store for up to 3 months- when ready to serve, remove from the freezer to thaw until softened.

    Kathryn – these are just stunning!! Every photo just got better and better the longer that I read on. I can’t WAIT to make these – my son’s going to flip!

  2. These are delicious! I made them for my daughters wedding. They are for the wedding cookie table. I think these will be some of the first to go!
    Thank you for the recipe!

  3. 5 stars
    These cookies are so awesome!!! I have done it several times; once with dark chocolate chips, another with Oreos, and just recently with the white chocolate. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I LOVE Oreo Cookies & Cream anything, so when I found this recipe, I was SO EXCITED to try it out!

  4. If I had made a double batch of cookie dough, but did not have time to bake all of it, would it be all right to store in a container in the fridge then bring it back to room temperature?

    1. 5 stars
      Hi Victoria, if you plan to bake the remaining dough within a few days that’s what I would do. You could also scoop them into cookie dough balls and store them in the refrigerator, that way all you have to do is pop them in the oven 🙂

  5. Have you ever used a combination of dark and light chocolate chips to bake these cookies? Several people that have tried my cookies said they were the favorite over just having one over the other.

  6. 5 stars
    So I baked the cookies 2 days ago, but if I wanted to freeze them so they’d stay fresh longer, would I still have to put them on a pan and flash freeze then put them in a bag before putting them back in the freezer or can I just put them in a bag and freeze?
