Cream filled sandwiches meet burfi to make a new Indian fusion treat

Classic Indian milk burfi (barfi) meets the favorite Oreo cookie to make an Indian Fusion treat, cookies and cream burfi! I’ve tested this many times and it has been made by many followers. It’s officially a fan favorite!

Indian fusion food is one of my favorite things to create. I love the blend of old familiar with new ideas to make delightful new treats. Gulab jamun cheesecake is an example of East meets West that I enjoyed creating.

Ingredients for cookies and cream burfi

  • Milk powder
  • Condensed milk
  • Double stuff cream filled cookies (Oreos or I used Back to Nature available at Whole Foods in the US)
  • Vanilla extract
  • Ghee
  • Sugar

Optionally, add in extra cream filling from a few additional cookies for more cookies and cream flavor. 

Note: Burfi is traditionally made with khoya/mawa (condensed milk solids). I’ve used condensed milk as a short cut and also for the flavor.

I love doing plays on milk barfi! Tiramisu barfi is definitely another recipe you should check out.

Making the burfi

So, this Indian fusion dessert is pretty easy to make.  It does take some time to dry and cool so I would allot atleast 3-4 hours. The flavor comes through best when cooled and set. If you can, leave it overnight.

For visual appeal you can:

  1. Take halves or pieces of the cookie and push in gently on top before the sweet cools
  2. Cut off thin slivers of the edges to show more of the black and white cookie filled look before serving

Equipment

  • 1 non-stick pot
  • 1 Silicon spoon
  • 1 7X7 baking tray or smaller mithai tray, depends on size you want to make them

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup condensed milk
  • cup milk powder 140g
  • 6 mega stuffed oreo cookies chopped
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp ghee
  • 2 tbsp sugar 30g
  • Extra oreos for the filling and for topping I used 4 extra fillings (the white stuff) in the mix and cut up 3 Oreos to use as topping

Instructions
 

  • Chop double stuff oreo (creme filled) cookies
  • Put pan on on stove. Add in condensed milk, sugar, milk powder and ghee until smooth in pan. Turn on stove on medium and whisk for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Mixture should thicken and start to pull away from pan. At this point, turn off gas and remove from heat.
  • Mix in vanilla extract. Spread out in pan, to help it cool. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Mix in oreo cookies.
  • Spread out into parchment lined pan and let cool. Use bottom of small bowl or cup to smooth out. Press in some extra cookie pieces on top if you would like.
  • Let cool 3-4 hours before cutting (overnight if possible). Then serve.

Notes

Note: optionally when you add in the chopped cookies, you can include just the cream filling of a few more cookies which tastes so good.  That’s where the real cookies and cream flavor is!

  1. Hi shilpa we just try this recipe it’s turn out very good everyone love in my family we will try other recipe ❤️

    1. Hi Jaymini – so happy to hear! Thanks so much for letting me know 🙂 Did you make it for Rakshabandhan today? If so, hope you enjoyed celebrating 💓

  2. Hi there, the recipe has sugar. Where in the method should the sugar go in? I followed the method, but didn’t add the sugar. Hoping it will now set.

    1. Hi Anusha – It goes in at the same time as the condensed milk, ghee, etc. It just adds a little extra sweetness and shouldn’t impact the ability to set. Hope it worked out! 🙂

    1. Hi there – I would refrigerate them and let them come to room temperature before serving to stay on the safe side.

  3. Hi Shilpa,

    Can you clarify the layering – do the 2 layers of parleG go under the milk barfi- those steps haven’t been explained in the recipe.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Rachna! They will definitely last a week in the fridge. Possibly two weeks, but make sure they are in an airtight container.
