Okay, enough sucking up and apologizing already. I am sure you are all dieing to know what wonderful thing I have discovered involving Oreo cookies. And no, those of you thinking these are my truffles...sorry they are not...this is something way more unusual and oh so very yummy! Oreo stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!!!! They are delicious, they are wonderful and as I sit here writing to all of you glorious readers, I am watching my family devour them at an amazing speed and ruining their dinners! For shame, family, FOR SHAME!!!!
Here they are, don't they look amazing? They are quite large though, essentially three cookies in one, so keep them away from your family until after dinner. Learn from my mistakes people...trust me!
My hubby found these for me when he was looking at one of his sites...he saw a picture, read what they were and then showed me a new blog...Buns In My Oven...great blog! I am so in love with her recipes, you should hop on over there and check it out, seriously. She did this recipe a little while ago and she in return got it from yet another amazing blog, Picky Palate...also wonderful and a new fav of mine. I am making a couple of things from their pages for the Super Bowl this weekend in fact!
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookiesrecipe from Picky Palate
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 package Oreo cookies (I had a bunch leftover)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the wet mixture and combine thoroughly. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Chill the dough for 15 minutes to make it easier to work with and to keep the dough from spreading when baking. (I didn't do this long enough and mine seemed to spread more than hers.)
Using a cookie scoop, place one scoop of dough on top of an Oreo cookie. Place another single scoop on the bottom of the Oreo to create a cookie sandwich. Squish the scoops of dough together and seal the edges together to completely enclose the Oreo.
Place the balls of cookie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 9-13 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
Be sure to enjoy these with a big glass of cold milk!
