Mascarpone Oreo Cookies

I can’t believe Christmas is already less than two weeks away. I can’t even handle it! I have hardly made any Christmas goodies! Never mind baking, I haven’t had a chance to decorate or do any shopping. This is so not like me.

But finally! I was able to get in the kitchen yesterday after a crazy couple of weeks! I had about 15 minutes before Luke was going to be home so I worked as quickly as I could to put together a cookie batter. This Mascarpone Oreo Snowflake Cookie recipe from the blog Kevin and Amanda is perfect to make when you don’t have a lot of time. And…mascarpone cheese in a cookie? I have never heard of such a thing. Trust me, it is amazing!

I was a little nervous while the batter was mixing because the texture of the batter appears to be very crumbly.

Don’t let this fool you! As you scoop the batter, it all seems to come together.

These remind me of little scoops of cookies n’ cream ice cream…yum! And I think they kind of taste like cookies n’ cream ice cream.

These cookies should definitely be put into your Christmas cookie rotation. They are so light but have a nice, chocolaty crunch from the Oreo cookies. Don’t forget to find the recipe here!
