What You Need to Make Cookies n Cream Cookies
- Butter – Unsalted butter, softened.
- Granulated Sugar – Sweetens these cookies while adding a little crunch.
- Brown Sugar – Brown sugar sweetens and makes the cookies soft and chewy. You can use light or dark brown sugar.

- Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract adds a hint of flavor.
- Flour – All-purpose flour, no need to sift. You can learn how to properly measure baking ingredients here.
- Salt – Reduce to ¼ teaspoon if you are substituting salted butter. Salt brings out all the other flavors in baking.
- Baking Powder – The leavening agent that makes these giant cookies rise.
- Cookies and Cream Candy Bar – Chopped into chunks so you get the flavor and texture in every bite.
- Oreos – These cookies are rolled and stuffed with an entire package of Oreos for maximum cookies and cream taste!
- Make Standard Sized Cookies – Make 1″ to 1 ¼″ dough balls. Cut Oreos into ¼ths and place a piece inside each cookie dough ball. Reduce bake time to 8-10 minutes.

Overview | How to Make Cookies and Cream Cookies in 6 Easy Steps
The full printable recipe is below.
- Cream Butter and Sugars – Cream butter and sugars to aerate the dough adding extra lift and fluffy texture. Add the egg and vanilla to combine.
- Make the Dough – Blend in flour, baking powder and salt until just combined. The dough will be crumbly. Add chopped candy bar (chocolate chip-sized pieces) and fold into dough.
- Make Dough Balls – Divide dough into 6 portions. Put an Oreo in each and shape dough into a ball around the Oreo.
- Garnish – Crush up the rest of the Oreos and place in a bowl. Roll dough balls in the crushed Oreos to cover the top and sides.
- Chill – Refrigerate covered dough 30 minutes (or more). This helps them maintain their shape and size when baking.
- Bake – Bake in a pre-heated oven. Allow to cool 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack to prevent them from continuing to bake.
- Chill Cookie Dough – This will prevent the cookie from flattening too much while baking.
- Dough is Crumbly – Resist the temptation to add a liquid to make it softer. The dough will stick together when pressed and turn out just right.
Frequently Asked Questions
Bake cookies the full time. They require more time because they are so big. You’ll see the edges get firm and the center will not look doughy.
I like to chop the candy bar using a knife on a cutting board. The Oreos can also be done with a knife or placed in a bag and hit lightly with a rolling pin.
Room Temperature – Cookies will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to five days.
Refrigerate – Store baked cookies in an airtight container for up to one week.
Freeze Cookies – Make sure to let cookies cool completely before freezing. Place cookies in an airtight container or in a freezer bag. When you’re ready to eat them, thaw cookies in the refrigerator or on the counter.
Freeze Dough Balls – Freeze doughballs in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to bake, remove from the freezer and bake according to recipe instructions. You can bake the dough from frozen – you just have to add a few minutes to the baking time and bake until the cookies are set.
