These Cheesecake Cookies are creamy and delicious. My two favorite cheesecake flavors are Oreo and strawberry, with lots of crushed Oreo’s and strawberry topping oozing off the top. When time to purchase a slice, I always have such a hard time deciding which one to choose from as they are both so good!
Cheesecake 2 for 1
I’m reminded of those great sales in the store, “Buy one Get One Free,” sounds like a pretty good deal don’t you think? Who doesn’t love a deal like that, I’m always up for a super, fantastic deal as two are definitely better than one?
However, I have an even better deal for you, let’s call it a “sweet” deal.
This cheesecake cookie recipe gives you two great cookies from one basic dough, Yum!
Easy Cookie Recipe
This recipe is super simple and easy, where substituting just one ingredient for the base recipe gives you two delicious, creamy cookies. There is no leavening agent in these cookies, it totally relies on mechanical leavening and heat to give the cookies their needed lift.
I love making cookies, they are a quick way to bring something sweet to the table and share. Check out my “Project Cookie” post about where my real cookie baking journey was challenged.
Oreo and Strawberry
Crushed Oreo’s and strawberry jam are the secret weapons here that are added to give you the two cookies. These cookies bake up super wonderful and you are left with a creamy texture and richness of the cream cheese, much like a slice of cheesecake.
Additionally, the strawberry cookie gives a more soft and chewy texture compliments of the jam and adds that hint of strawberry taste. Perfectly flavored for this second Cheesecake Cookie.
Chocolate Cheesecake Oreo
Of course, the cookies are just as wonderful on their own without needing anything additional. However, I decided to take it up a notch by enhancing the cream cheese flavors by vanilla drizzle on the Oreo cookie, and a partial chocolate bath for the strawberry version. Technically, I guess you could call it a strawberry chocolate cheesecake cookie?
For the decorations, I used melted chocolate bark for each as it hardens nicely for a nice look and makes for a delicious cookie and fun presentation.
Two For One!

- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup Oreo crumbs (reserve 2 TBS for the topping)
- 1/2 cup Vanilla bark (about 2 ounces) (melted ( for the topping))
Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie
- Use the same recipe above without the Oreo crumbs and vanilla bark and add the following:
- 2–3 TBS strawberry jam
- 1 cup chocolate bark (about 6 ounces) (melted (for the topping))
- Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cream the butter with the cream cheese till creamy.
- Add the sugar and mix till combined, then add the vanilla and mix well.Mix in the flour and salt and mix till the dough is combined well.
- Oreo: On low speed add the Oreo crumbs and mix just till incorporated.Strawberry: Add the jam and mix just till incorporated
- Place 2″ apart on baking sheet.
- Bake 10-12 minutes just till the ends get lightly golden brown and done. Remove and cool completely. The strawberry cookies may need a few more minutes to finish baking.
Decorating with the Chocolate Bark
- In separate bowls, melt the chocolate barks at 30 second intervals till completely melted
- For the Oreo: Drizzle with a fork or piping bag the melted vanilla bark over the cookies. Use different designs as seen here. Top with some leftover cookie crumbs. Press gently to adhere to the drizzle.
- For the Strawberry: Dip half of the cookie into the chocolate bark and place on parchment paper to allow the chocolate to harden.
I like to use these extra large baking sheets as they are a perfect fit for one recipe of cookie batter.
Try experimenting with different flavors of cream cheese for different flavors.
