The running joke on this blog has become my love for Oreos. I’ll bake anything and everything having to do with them. These cookies were fabulous – a pairing of two classics: chocolate chip cookies and Oreos. They’re easy to make, but be warned, the cookies are e-n-o-r-m-o-u-s!
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag Oreo Cookies (I used Double Stuf)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
3. Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo Cookie. Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo Cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo Cookie is enclosed with dough.
4. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
This is a photo of how I made the cookies. I used two scoops of dough, flattened them a bit, and then enclosed the dough around the Oreo cookie. Pinch the dough to make sure that a seal is formed around the cookie.
