One of the guys I work with had a birthday this week. I asked him what he wanted me to make for him, he said "anything with Oreo's and chocolate" OK. Free reign!! Even though they love them, I decided against making Oreo cake balls. I searched he web and found Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies from Picky Palate. Oh my. Who thinks of these things?? I had to make them.
I gave the cookies to my co-worker. He took the bag, smiled and said "thank you". He took a cookie out of the bag, bit into it, looked at it, smiled even wider and shoved the rest of the cookie into his mouth. Once word got out that he had Oreo stuffed cookies, the rest of my co-workers were surrounding him like vultures. I told him he could share, I had brought him 12 cookies. He passed out all but one, he was saving that one for lunch !!
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
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 the double stuff
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. 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. 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. Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy!
Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE Cookies
