These Oreo cheesecake cookies are made for Oreo lovers because they are stuffed with chopped Oreos. The cheesecake filling in the center is the best part and they couldn’t be easier to make!

If you love Oreos but without the cream cheese filling, you should try my Oreo chocolate chip cookies.

Ingredient Notes & Substitutions

ingredients needed to make oreo cookies with cheesecake filling.

​Oreos: I tested these Oreo cheesecake cookies with classic Oreo cookies, but you could also switch them up for one of the specialty flavors. You won’t need a whole pack for this recipe, so save them and make my Oreo cinnamon rolls next!

Cream cheese: I prefer full-fat cream cheese for this recipe.

Brown sugar: Light or dark brown sugar will work.

Step 5: Fill the cookies. Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop. With the dough still in the scoop, press one of the frozen cream cheese balls into the center. Mold the dough around it to seal it in, then place it on the tray.

Step 6: Bake! Roll the top and sides of the cookie dough balls in the Oreo crumbs and place them back on the tray. Chill the tray in the freezer for 3-4 hours minimum, overnight is best!

Then bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden brown. Let the tray cool on a wire rack before removing it.

Baking Tips

  • Use a kitchen scaleBaking with a scale is much more accurate than cup measurements. To convert this recipe, click the “metric” button next to the ingredients title on the recipe card. If you do not have a scale, use a spoon to fluff the flour first, then spoon it into your measuring cup.
  • Use room temperature ingredients. This creates a fully blended dough that will result in a uniform texture and even baking.
  • Save the extra Oreo cookies. You will use roughly 1 sleeve of Oreo cookies for this recipe. Use the rest to make my Oreo whoopie pies!

FAQs

How do I store Oreo cheesecake cookies? Can I freeze them?

Store leftover cookies at room temperature in an airtight container for 2-3 days. You can keep the raw dough balls in the freezer in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months.

Do these cookies need to be refrigerated?

No! The cream cheese contains sugar and has been baked so they are fine to store at room temperature.

Can I skip the filling?

Yes! You don’t have to fill them with the cheesecake filling, they will be regular Oreo cookies without it.

Can I double the recipe?

Sure! You can also make my Oreo cookie cake which is perfect for a crowd!

What is the best way to chop the Oreos?

Put the cookies in a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into crumbs. You can also use a food processor!

Notes

*Measure your flour properly. This is my #1 baking tip! Do not ever scoop a measuring cup into your flour as this always leads to using too much flour. Instead, use the spoon-level method. This means fluffing the flour first, then spooning it into your measuring cup/spoon. For the BEST results, use a kitchen scale!*
To make the Oreo crumbs, put the cookies in a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into crumbs. You can also use a food processor!
