Oreo Cheesecake Cookies

Are you ready for these?  I found this recipe over at Brown Eyed Baker.
A word of caution: the dough may not all make it to the oven!  It is delicious itself, and perfectly safe to eat!  I must admit, I only made about 10 cookies, and ate the rest of the dough.  Whoops.  :)


1 stick butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips
1 c. crushed Oreos

Cream together butter and cream cheese.  Add in sugar and vanilla.
Slowly add in flour, until fully combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.
Roll into 1 1/2" balls, toss in Oreo crumbs.
Place on parchment-lined cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 for 12 minutes until puffed up and the edges are just turning golden.

I did not drop off the face of the earth!

I started a new job, and am adjusting to my new schedule (nights & weekends off!  but up early every weekday morning -ugh!).  And then my laptop had to be sent out for repair (AGAIN) so my blogging has been pushed off to the side.  But never fear!  I have a few things up my sleeve to share with you, and will post them soon.   Today is a busy family day, but hopefully tonight I will have time to post a few of the things I've managed to make lately.

Also, while on my hiatus, my sweet little girls became TV stars!!!  A short little clip was aired on America's Funniest Home Videos on March 13!  It was so amazing to see my girls on the big screen (seriously, we watched it at my parents house - they have a HUGE TV!!!  :))  Here is a sad little video I took with my little camera while we watched it:
