Cookies n' Cream Cheesecake Cookies

Okay, so I am so proud of this cookie! Not only is it delicious, but I made it up myself. I have adapted other recipes to my taste before, but this is the first cookie I have invented. I'm sure there is another cookie like this out there somewhere, but I haven't seen it.
My inspiration for this cookie came from a couple of different places. First, my grandma makes this amazing Chocolate Chip Cheesecake (which I will post at a later date), and I was originally going to duplicate that into a cookie, but then I was blog hopping and saw these mini oreo cheesecakes. If you don't know, my favorite thing to make, and eat, are cookies. So, the Cookies N' Cream Cheesecake Cookie was born! To make it a little more "cheesecakey" I drizzled it with some cream cheese icing. They were a hit!
Cookies N' Cream Cheesecake Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 1/4 c. flour
2 c. crushed oreo cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl beat cream cheese and butter together. Add sugar and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. With a wooden spoon or rubber spatula fold in crushed oreos. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto lined cookie sheets. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until the edges barely turn brown. Let cool on pan for 2 minutes and tranfer to wire rack or waxed paper to cool completely. Drizzle with CREAM CHEESE ICING (below) and enjoy! Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
