How to prepare Oreo Cheesecake Cookies?
First, you need to crush Oreo cookies, by putting them in a plastic zip bag and then crush them with a solid object, like rolling pin. Next, combine dry ingredients (flour, powdered sugar, cornstarch, salt, baking powder). Meanwhile, in a separate dish, mix wet ingredients – mix cream cheese and butter, first, until it´s smooth, then add egg and vanilla and beat until it´s combined. Next, add dry ingredients and beat until it´s combined and fold in crushed Oreos. The dough will be soft and sticky. Cover it with a plastic foliage and chill in the fridge for 45 min – 1 hour.
Meanwhile, prepare baking sheet and line it with a parchment paper, then preheat the oven to 375 F. Take the dough out of the fridge and spoon cookies into the already prepared baking sheet, 1.5 inches apart. If you want more intense flavor, put some crumbled Oreo cookies on top. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes or until the edges become golden brown, then take them out of the oven and leave in the baking sheet for a few minutes to cool and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Oreo Cheesecake Cookies can stay fresh and soft for a few days. Keep them in an airtight container, at a room temperature for 4-5 days, or refrigerated up to 2 months.

Tips and tricks:
- Try not to over beat the dough. Beat it until dough is just combined.
- Chill the dough. By chilling it, you prevent the cookies to expand during baking and you get thicker and harder cookies.
- Bake 1 batch at time.
- Try not to over bake the cookies, because they will lose their softness that way. Bake them only until the edges become golden brown.
