Ingredients In Cookies and Cream Milkshake Cookies
For the Cookies
- Salted Butter- Make sure you bring the butter to room temperature so that it will cream well with the sugar.
- Granulated Sugar- Just plain ol’ white sugar will do the trick.
- Vanilla Extract
- Chopped Oreos- About 12 chopped Oreos should do the trick, it should end up being about a cup and a half.
- Baking Powder
For the Frosting
- Salted Butter- Again, make sure that the butter is softened, you don’t want chunks of butter in your frosting.
- Powdered Sugar
- Heavy Cream- Technically you can use milk here, but the heavy cream just gives the frosting a thicker richer texture.
- Chopped Oreos- About 8 chopped Oreos for the frosting. About 1 cups worth.
How To Make Cookies and Cream Milkshake Cookies
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is preheating, make your cookie dough by creaming your butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Once the butter and sugar are creamed, scrape the sides of your bowl, add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat again until mixed.
Scrape the sides of the bowl and add in the flour and baking powder and mix until combined. Finally add the crushed Oreos and mix them for about 5 seconds. Be careful not to overmix the Oreos. You don’t want to smash the cookies up. Overmixing will cause your cookies to turn a gray color rather than being a white cookie with chunks of Oreo.
Scoop out a heaping 1/4 cup of dough and roll it into a ball. Place the ball on a cookie sheet and flatten with your hand. The cookies won’t change size too much while baking, so make the cookies about the same size you’d like your final cookie. Repeat this step with the rest of the dough, placing 6 cookies per sheet.
You can make smaller cookies if you prefer, but you will need to adjust the bake time.
Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes until the center of the cookie has puffed up and no longer looks wet. Do not let the cookies begin to brown, if the are browning, they are over baked. Over baked cookies will be crunchy and dry. Nobody wants that!
Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet. Because they are large, cooling them on the cookie sheet will allow the insides of the cookie to finish baking without the whole cookie overbaking.
While the cookies cool, make your frosting by creaming the butter until super smooth. Slowly add the powdered sugar, vanilla and cream to the frosting until it is smooth and creamy. You can adjust the texture of the frosting if needed by adding more powdered sugar or more cream.
Add the chopped Oreos to the frosting and mix slightly, again, be careful not to overmix and turn the frosting gray. I learned years ago from Steel Magnolias that nobody thinks gray icing is pretty.
Spread the frosting on the completely cooled cookies and top with a mini Oreo smack dab in the middle.
Chill cookies until they are ready to serve.
Do These Cookies Freeze Well?
These cookies freeze beautifully! You can freeze the dough and save it for later, just allow the dough to come to room temperature before baking.
You can freeze the cookie prior to frosting them, or you can freeze the frosted cookie if you par freeze them for a few minutes prior to wrapping them up. Par freezing them will set the frosting and keep it from smearing all over. When you are ready to eat, just remove the cookie from the wrap before thawing them out and your frosting will stay perfect!
