Oreo Cookie Bars

We made these bars for our Financial Peace class. It was officially National Chocolate Day, so this was a fitting dessert!

Oreo Cookie Bars (Oreo Flatbread)

For the crust:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup Oreo cookie crumbs (12-14 cookies)

For the “sauce” aka cream cheese frosting:

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar

For the topping:

1 and 1/2 cups roughly crushed Oreos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray 12x17 sheet pan with non-stick baking spray. Roll or press crust into the pan. Bake for 13-14 minutes or until just golden around the edges and set in the middle. Let cool completely in pan.

Once cooled, prepare frosting (“sauce”) but mixing all ingredients with an electric mixer until combined. Spread evenly over cooled cookie crust.

Top with crushed Oreos and cut into desired size pieces. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator.
