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.

To be honest, I just tried making Oreo Truffles out of curiosity because they look nice.
I got the recipe from the internet and tweaked it a bit.
I really didn’t expect that it will be a hit and we sold lots of dozens every week.
So I hope you will all give it a try.

Allow me to share our Christmas Theme Oreo Truffles we made last Christmas.

My First Try.. No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake!

When I was working in Singapore I didn’t have the luxury of time to do things aside from work..
Learning a new hobby is not feasible because I was a busy woman back then- haha.

I was grateful that when I went back to the Philippines last February 2015, I had lots of time on my hands..
Plus- we wanted to open a Cafe back then so suddenly I became interested in baking..

June 27, 2015 when I started to try baking hence, the photos above.
I know the photo above is a “No-Bake Cheesecake” so technically it is not baking-
but this started my passion in baking.
I saw myself baking cakes and such week after week.

By the way, it tasted good because actually with Oreos, you’ll never go wrong.. 🙂
No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake Tutotial

I am not into sweets and I am really not a fan of chocolates..
However, when I started baking, I also started to crave for chocolate cakes and stuff..
It was weird but I continued baking because I felt a sense of fulfillment everytime I see and taste my finish product..

Okay, I won’t keep this long..
This is just a brief history but later on I’ll be posting some of my baked goods and their recipes.. 🙂
