Cookies 'n Cream Kiss Cookies

Kiss2

I'm not sure if most schools are having their Valentines Day parties today or Monday. It seems like they would have them on Monday, since it's the actual day, but maybe not.

Anyway, I thought these cookies would be a good item to bring into your kid's party at school. Or you could just make them for your kids. Or your family and friends. It doesn't matter to me!

I made these for Eric because I was testing out recipes for his geology bake sale. Yes, you read that correctly. He's involved in some sort of bake sale with the geology club he's in, and he wanted to know if I wanted to bake something to donate.

So I came up with this creation - Cookies 'n Cream Kiss Cookies. He told me the cookies look like the mineral gneiss and that seems appropriate for a geology bake sale, don't you think?

Off subject, but, I can't believe Eric made fun of me the other day for competing in a history bowl when I was in high school, and he's in a college geology club. Just saying.

Just kidding Ericcakes!

The cookies are really soft and buttery... soft because the batter contains cream cheese. The cookies taste like a soft vanilla sugar cookie with chopped up Oreos. I even used real Oreos and not Twist 'n Shouts. After a quick chill the batter is spooned onto cookie sheets and baked. Right after taking the cookies out of the oven I pressed Cookies 'n Cream Kisses into the centers.

Ohhh yes. Cookies 'n Cream Kisses. I love these things!

I received high reviews from these cookies by my critics. So I approve these cookies for baking.
Have a good weekend!

1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup coarsely chopped Oreo cookies
24 cookies 'n cream kisses

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese until softened. Beat in butter until creamy. Beat in sugar until well combined. Beat in egg, vanilla and almond extract until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined; stir in Oreos until combined.

Chill cookie dough in the freezer or refrigerator until cold. Place rounded tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheets. Bake 12 minutes or until puffed and light golden brown around edges.

Remove pans from oven; press a kiss in the center of each cookie. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.

  1. They look exactly like cookies and cream ice cream... Do you think I could actually add them to ice cream to make a big cookies and cream sundae? With hot fudge sauce on top? Oh my...


    By the way, I just posted a recipe for German pancakes:

  2. That is sweet to make something for Eric's bake sale! The hubs and I were taking just last night and I'm not sure I recall ever having a Valentine's Day party, I just handed out Barbie and Thundercat valentines and called it a day. What a deprived child I was. Maybe I'll make these to console myself!

  7. Boys are funny about the things they think are nerdy. Math clubs and geology clubs apparently - cool. Being an MD/PhD student...apparently not as cool.

    Cookies and cream is an addiction of mine. I love it in ice cream and I bet I'd love it in cookies. Just saying.
