Baked Cookies and Cream Doughnuts:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup crushed chocolate creme sandwich cookies

Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened at room temperature
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Finely crushed chocolate creme sandwich cookies for topping


To make the doughnuts:

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease 2-3 doughnut pans.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract. Mix into the flour mixture just until incorporated with no lumps. Gently fold in the crushed cookies.
  • Transfer the batter to a piping bag or a large ziploc bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe the batter into prepared doughnut pans. Each cavity should be about 2/3 full.
  • Bake in preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely to room temperature.

To make the glaze:

  • In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Beat in the milk and vanilla extract to create a smooth glaze.

To assemble the doughnuts:

  • Place the finely crushed cookies into a wide bowl. Place half of the cream cheese glaze into a separate bowl and the remaining half into a pastry bag with a thin tip or a ziploc bag with a small piece of the corner snipped off.
  • Dip the top of each doughnut into the cream cheese glaze. Allow any excess to drip off, then dip the glaze-covered doughnut into the crushed cookies to fully coat. Place back on the wire rack, cookie-side up.
  • Drizzle the remaining glaze in the pastry bag over each of the doughnuts. Serve immediately.
