  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 15 Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional


Preheat oven to 350°. For filling, in a small bowl, beat the first five ingredients until smooth; set aside.
For cookies, in a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg white. In another bowl, mix crushed cookies, flour and baking powder; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
Shape rounded tablespoons of dough into 1-1/2-in. balls; place 2-in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly to 1/2-in. thickness. Press a deep indentation in center of each with your thumb. Fill each with 1 rounded teaspoon filling.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until filling is almost set. Cool on pan 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Drizzle generously with melted chocolate. If desired, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate leftovers.
