I know we’ve talked a big game with these best ever chocolate chip cookies and these funfetti cookies, but these Cookies and Cream Cookies are taking the lead right now in our house!

Cameron’s all time favorite candy bar is the Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme Candy bar so these cookies are by far his favorite I’ve made yet.

He keeps changing his mind with every new cookie recipe I create – haha!

Cookies on parchment paper

The base of this cookie recipe is my recipe for the best ever chocolate chip cookie recipe. Most of the cookie recipes I’ve posted this year follow that recipe structure because why reinvent the wheel, ya know?!

  • Perfectly soft
  • Absolutely amazing
  • Stuffed with tons of Oreos, because Oreos.
  • Chewy and thick
  • Easy to make
  • No-chill cookies, because we a’int got time for that.
  • Begging for you to make them.

Here’s the low down

(For the full recipe, scroll down to the recipe card below)

Cookies & Cream Cookies ingredients in small glass bowls
  • All-Purpose Flour and Cake Flour: If you’ve made my cookies recipes before you’ll know I love using a combination of these flours. I’ve found it creates the perfect cookie!
  • Corn starch: cornstarch is key to giving cookies that delectably soft center that’s just to die for. It also helps to keep the cookies thick and GIANT!
  • Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies: They make gluten free Oreo’s now, if you need!
  • HERSHEY’S Cookies ‘n’ Crème Bars: roughly chop them so they create pieces to mix into the dough
  • NO Instant Oreo Pudding Mix or Cream Cheese required!

How to make these Cookies

The process is very similar to the chocolate chip cookie and snickerdoodle cookie recipe. So if you have that down, you’ll be a pro at these.

(For the full recipe, scroll down to the recipe card below)

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl: All-Purpose flour, cake flour, corn starch, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the cold butter. Then add in the white sugar and brown sugar and let the butter and sugars cream together, up to 4 minutes.
  4. Then add in the eggs, egg yolks, and vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add in the dry ingredients and then add in the chopped Oreo cookies and cookies and creme bars.
  6. Shape dough into 7-large cookies (~5 oz. each). and bake for 10-12 minutes @375°F.
  7. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 15 minutes and then transfer to a wire cooling rack.

Expert Tips

  • Use a food scale to measure out your cookies into ~ 5 oz. size. so all of your cookies are the same size. You can make larger or smaller if you’d like!
  • Feel free to use a hand mixer if you don’t have a stand mixer.
  • Cream the chilled butter and sugar for up to 4 minutes. You want a nice creamy, fluffy texture!
  • Use an ungreased cookie sheet. You can use baking sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat mat, but not necessary to line baking sheets.

  • If your cookies are turning out flat, try adding a little extra flour.
  • Be sure you preheat the oven to 375° first. Get the oven nice and hot while you prep the cookies.
  • Be sure to not over bake the cookies. Slightly under baked is the way to go.
  • Cool completely before freezing.

Notes

GLUTEN FREE: Replace both the All-Purpose flour and Cake flour with: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour . I tested this & cookies are very similar in taste and appearance and a great option for those who need a GF cookie.

These cookies were so delicious! Question, though, if I wanted to make smaller sample sized cookies, does the recipe stay the same? And if so, how long would I cook it for?

These came out delicious! I made mine a little big so I added a few more minutes to the cook time and they are perfect! I had to stop using the mixer and fold in the cookies and candy by hand because the dough was REALLY thick. I also had cookies and candy leftover but I mixed them up in a bowl and the family just had more snacks! I used the double recipe button because I wanted more than 7 cookies. I think maybe doubling the cookies and candy makes too much but that’s not the worst thing! Anyway I wound up with 21 cookies with the double recipe. Overall great!
