From the Bookshelf to the Kitchen: Cookies and Cream Cookies

Some characters are obsessed with books, some with sports or a certain TV show. Simon Spier is obsessed with Oreos.

There are so many routes I could've gone with this recipe - Oreo cheesecake, Oreo pie, cookies and cream cupcakes (which I have made before). But I decided to try a new recipe - cookies and cream cookies.

The recipe originally called for chocolate chips, too, but I made the decision to leave them out - and it was a good decision. They would've been weighed down by too much filling.

Cookies and Cream Cookies

1 vanilla cake mix (15.25 oz)
8 T. butter, melted
1 egg
1 t. vanilla extract
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 c. Oreo cookie chunks

Combine the cake mix, butter, egg, and vanilla. Beat until a soft dough forms. Add the cream cheese and beat again. Stir in the cookie chunks by hand. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes and then roll into 36 balls. Place on baking sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. The cookies will seem underdone, but they will continue to set up as they cool. Let cool on baking sheets for 2-3 minutes and then remove to wax-paper-lined counters. Cool completely before storing in sealed containers.
