Peanut Butter Cookies with OREOS
Peanut butter cookies filled with chocolate, white chocolate, and crushed Oreo cookies. Yes, I did that, and it’s fantastic.
You know I’m always looking for ways to combine different kinds of cookies into one delicious treat.
Why You’ll LOVE These Cookies
Well, first, they’re peanut butter and Oreo cookies, and, really, I could just stop right there, but here’s the deal – these cookies ‘n cream butter cookies start with my favorite soft and chewy peanut butter cookies.
Except for this time, instead of just making basic peanut butter cookies, I added one of my favorite flavors: OREO!
They’re cookies and cream peanut butter cookies! The peanut butter makes them taste like Reese’s cookies and cream cookies – in other words, so good.
These make a few dozen cookies. They keep well on the counter for several days, or you can freeze them for cookie emergencies. I don’t chill the dough, but I like to run a fork over the top to give them that traditional peanut butter cookie look!
Ingredients in Oreo Peanut Butter Cookies
Butter: I always start with softened unsalted butter
Peanut Butter: Don’t use natural – make sure it’s a no-stir peanut butter.
Sugar: Packed brown sugar and granulated sugar make these perfectly sweet.
Large egg: No need for room temperature eggs unless you remember to leave them out.
Vanilla Extract: Always buy PURE vanilla.
Milk: My secret peanut butter cookie ingredient!
Salt: Not too much but needed to balance flavor.
Baking Soda: Makes them soft and chewy.
All-purpose flour: My standard cookie flour.
Chopped Oreo Cookies: Add tons of chopped Oreos!
How to make Peanut Butter Cookies with Oreos
- Cream the butter, peanut butter, and both types of sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
- Add the egg, vanilla, milk, salt, and baking soda and mix until combined.
- Slowly add the flour and mix until the dough comes together.
- Stir in chopped Oreos.
- Scoop two tablespoons of cookie dough to form the cookie balls and place them on prepared baking sheets. Use a fork to make a crisscross on top of each dough ball.
- Bake the cookies at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes or until they just begin to brown. Cool the cookies on the cookies sheet before removing them.
- Oreos: You can chop the cookies in a food processor or place them in a bag and whack them a few times with a rolling pin. Just don’t crush them too much – you want cookie chunks.
- Chocolate: Add some chocolate chips if you want! Use semi-sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate chips.
- Mixing: When you add the flour, add it a little at a time and mix in between each addition. Don’ overmix – just do it long enough to absorb the flour.
- Storage: Store Oreos and peanut butter cookies in an airtight container for up to three days at room temperature. They can be frozen in sealable containers or Ziploc bags between layers of paper towels for up to one month.

How much chips it is left out of recipe???
Okay great!! Same, I always have fat free but I know a lot of recipes like whole or 2% so I wanted to be sure!
Thank you! 🙂
Excited to try these!
But before I do, I noticed you said you didn’t refrigerate the dough this time. Why did you choose not to? Wondering if I should or not.
Also what type of milk did you use?
Thank you in advance 🙂
Over time I realized my PB cookie recipe doesn’t need chilling. If you want to – you totally can but it’s not required. Any milk works – I used nonfat since we always have it but any fat content or nondairy will work too.
Hi Dorothy. These cookies look really good. Could they be made into bars using a baking pan?
The recepies look wonderful. All the ingredents to make cookies for my grandchildren
Lol I just reread the recipe and now I understand the peanut butter! Lol
Sorry! No need to respond for the late one!
So you have to use peanut butter that as the oil on top???
I want to make these, but was confused about the peanut butter. Towards the top it says don’t use natural, make sure it’s no stir peanut butter, but under ingredients it says don’t use no stir peanut butter. Which is it supposed to be?
It’s regular peanut butter – not natural
