This Oreo cookie dough recipe requires very little equipment - you probably already have everything you need!
- A microwave-safe bowl
- Electric hand mixer or stand mixer
- Food thermometer - I prefer using an electric thermometer because they are very accurate and easy to read
- Sieve for sifting the flour - this is optional but will help make sure your cookie dough doesn't have any clumps of flour
Step by Step Instructions
STEP ONE (Picture 1 above) -
In a microwave-safe bowl, cook the flour until it reaches 160-165°F so it is safe to eat, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Continue cooking in 20 second intervals if not yet up to temperature. See a quick how-to video here!
Place Oreos in a large plastic bag, removing most of the air and sealing slightly. Using a rolling pin, crush the Oreos until they are the consistency of gravel.
STEP TWO (Picture 2 above) - In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the vanilla and milk and mix until fully combined.
STEP THREE (Picture 3 above) - Sift the heat-treated flour and salt into the wet mixture and stir until a few streaks of flour remain.
STEP FOUR (Picture 4 above) - Mix in the crushed Oreos. Now your cookies and cream cookie dough is ready to eat!
Tips For Success
TIP #1 - As an alternative to the microwave, you can heat your flour on a baking sheet in a 350°F oven for 10-12 minutes until it reaches 160-165°F.
TIP #2 - You can crush your Oreo cookie pieces by pulsing in a food processor until they reach your desired consistency.
TIP #3 - Make sure your butter is softened to ensure it easily incorporates into the dough. You can leave the butter on the counter overnight or cook in the microwave in 10-second increments until just softened, not melted.
Substitutions & Variations
Use any type of sandwich cookies or Oreo varieties for a different spin on the classic cookies and cream!
This recipe has not been tested with any substitutions. If you do replace any ingredients, please let us know how they turned out in the comments below!
Room Temperature: Because the dough contains dairy, it should not be stored at room temperature.
Refrigerator: Store edible cookies and cream cookie dough in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
Freezer: Store in a freezer-safe container for up to 1 month. Bring cookie dough to room temperature on the counter before eating.
It's not well known but flour is not safe to consume without cooking. Heating the flour to 160-165°F ensures it is safe and healthy to eat without baking.
This cookie dough is so versatile! Try rolling it into balls and coating in chocolate to make cookie dough truffles, or use it as a filling between layers of chocolate cake!
Absolutely. Swap the wheat flour for your favorite gluten free flour, blend and enjoy!
