Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Kicking off the week with the first of my Valentine's themed posts is the recipe for these super yummy oreo cheesecake cookies. I actually found this recipe on Pinterest and they just tasted too good for me not to share it; using only six ingredients it's the perfect recipe for anyone who wants to have a bit of fun in the kitchen this weekend!


Although not as pink as I hoped they would be, (They aren't burnt - I promise!) they still taste absolutely divine! I used just one pipe of hot pink food colouring so I would definitely recommend using two if you would like yours to be more pink than mine! 

Ingredients
  • Pink food colouring
  • 200g cream cheese/soft cheese
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 8 tablespoons of salted butter
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • 1 pack of Oreo cookies

Method - Preparation 
  1. Add cream cheese into a bowl and mix with salted butter until creamy. 
  2. Add in the sugar and beat well.
  3. Once you're mixture looks like a creamy, thick paste begin to add in the flour. Add in gradually, mixing together as you go.
  4. Then, add in your food colouring. Use as much or as little as you like depending on your preference of colour intensity.
  5. Lastly, break your Oreos into pieces and add into the mixture. Mix together until evenly distributed.





Method - Baking
  1. Leave to cool in the fridge for a minimum of 45 minutes and no longer than 2 hours. I left mine for 1 hour and 15 minutes, incase you were wondering!
  2. Once cooled, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then, begin to form into dough balls (I used an ice cream scoop to do this!) and place onto a baking tray. Ensure your tray is lined with either foil or baking parchment and grease with butter or oil.
  3. Place into the oven for 15-20 minutes. If your cookies are quite thick remember to turn them over half way to ensure they are baked properly on both sides. 
  4. Leave to cool, eat and enjoy!

And it really is as simple as that! If you would like to check out the original recipe then you may do so here. Let me know in the comments below what your plans for Valentine's day are! Do you have a bae or will you be spending your day on the sofa with blankets and a tub of ice cream. (Bridget Jones style - haha!) Until next time lovelies,


Do you think Valentine's day is over-rated?!
