there was a recipe that i had been wanting to try for a while that my friend and i finally had the chance of making a few days ago. oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies (inspired by picky palate) a cookie inside of another cookie? YES PLEASE. the chocolate chip cookie batter for these types of cookies are a bit different than usual cookie batter because it includes more flour and thus comes out a bit thicker. this helps so that the oreo actually has cookie surrounding it after they finish baking.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 10 oz. bag of chocolate chips
- 1 package of oreo cookies (although you most likely won’t use all of them!)
preheat the oven to 350 degrees. cream the butter and sugars until well combined. gradually add in the eggs and the vanilla. mix well.
in another bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking soda. slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing well after each addition. stir in the chocolate chip cookies.
to make the cookies themselves, place one scoop of cookie dough on top of the oreo and another scoop under. press the edges together so that the oreo is complete encased with chocolate chip cookie dough. place onto parchment paper lined baking sheets and bake about 15-20 minutes.
these cookies come out HUGE. but so good! chocolate chip cookies and oreos are an awesome combination. and they’re really surprising for people who don’t know there is an oreo inside. yum. and they taste even better with a little bit of peanut butter spread on top!
