Who Invented Oreos?

A close up of the chewy cookies.

Oreos were introduced by the Nabisco company in 1912. Although it’s not clear who first designed the cookie, or even how the name “Oreo” came about, they were very similar to another cookies and cream biscuit at the time, called the Hydrox. Today’s Oreo cookies were designed by Sam Porcello, who slightly modified the original recipe to create the snack we know and love.

If you’re an Oreo lover, you’re sure to love these cookies. Here are a few important ingredients you don’t want to miss:

These are the basic steps for making Oreo Cheesecake Cookies. Refer to the full, printable recipe card below for detailed instructions. We love reader interactions, so if you love cheesecake you will love these cookies.

Mixing the batter for the oreo cookies.

Step 1: Prep the Baking Sheets with Parchment Paper or Mat

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a silicone mat or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. If you’re using whole Oreos, put them in a Ziploc bag and roll them with a rolling pin to crush them.

Step 2: Add the Dry Ingredients to Make the Dough

With an electric mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, cream cheese, and granulated sugar until smooth. Add the all-purpose flour to the cream cheese mixture, and mix until combined. Fold crushed Oreo crumbs into the batter.

Step 3: Bake Oreo Cheesecake Cookies on a Lined Baking Sheet

Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop, or spoon a few tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake the cookie dough balls for 12-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before moving them to a rack to cool completely.

Scooping the dough onto a baking sheet.

Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.

If your cookies look gray, you may have added too many Oreo cookie crumbs. However, they’ll probably still taste great!

You can make these cookies gluten-free by using gluten-free Oreo cookies and gluten-free flour. Use a low-fat cream cheese if you’re worried about trans fats.

  • Freeze: You can place the balls of dough in the freezer and place a frozen cheesecake oreos on parchment paper lined baking sheet.

    This recipe didn’t work for me. The cookies melted on the baking sheet and weren’t edible. Might work with flour and cooling the dough. Going to use a different recipe next time.
