Happy birthday to……… someone! It’s not my birthday and it’s not the birthday of any of my friends or family members, but let’s celebrate birthdays anyway! I saw these birthday cake-flavored Oreos at the grocery store and they were in my cart 0.2 seconds later. One of my favorite cookies ever is Picky Palate’s Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. I thought I could put a different twist on the same recipe – this time making them with the birthday cake-flavored Oreos. The result was amazing. My one and only regret is that I didn’t put white chocolate chips into these babies. I was going to and then realized that I was out of white chocolate chips — and the winter weather made me less inclined to go out and get another bag.
PS: If, by chance, today is your birthday — happy birthday!!!
