Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

IMG_0990Hello!
I came across a cookie recipe in Facebook and I tried it immediately because I like Oreo Cheesecake!

Ingredients:
1 bar (8oz) of cream cheese, equivalent to 8 ounces
1 cup butter at room temperature
2 cups white sugar
2 tsps vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 – 2 cups crushed Oreo cookies, approximately 10-15 pieces

IMG_0987Procedure:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Crush the Oreo cookies.
Cream the butter and cream cheese together.
Add the sugar and approximately 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour into the mixture then the the chocolate chips. Mix everything together.
Using the measuring spoon (1 tablespoon) or a small ice cream scoop, scoop the cookie dough and form a ball. Roll the cookie dough ball on the crushed Oreo.
Arrange the balls on your greased cookie pan/sheet, about half to one inch apart.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. After baking, do not leave the cookies on the hot cookie sheet for too long, you may transfer your cookies on a cooling rack.
