Pioneer Woman Week Recipes {Part One} continued

Also on Wednesday, to accompany the Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta, I made Oreo Cheesecake Cookies.  These were so very simple and so easy to make.  I accidently over-baked one batch (I was busy unpacking & starting laundry...) I definitely wouldn't let these cookies over-bake, that batch got a little hard.  But this recipe is a keeper!  I'm glad I found it.

{Oreo Cheesecake Cookies}
recipe compliments of The Pioneer Woman

1/2 cup unsalted butter; softened
3 ounces cream cheese; softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
10-12 oreos; crushed
1/2 cup white chocolate chips; melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees & line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, cream together the butter & cream cheese using a hand mixer until they are well combined. 
Add the sugar and vanilla & mix until ingredients are well combined.  Add the flour & mix on low until the flour is incorporated.  Stir in the mini chocolate chips. 

Scoop the dough into 1" balls & roll in oreo crumbs so cookie is covered.  Place covered cookie balls onto the prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes (I'd stick closer to 12- they won't look done...thats okay) until the edges are golden & the tops are slightly puffed.

Cool on the pan for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. One cool, drizzle cookies with melted white chocolate.  Enjoy!
