Okay, first we must establish that chocolate chip cookies are the all time best homemade treat. Hands down, right? I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? They are a universal favorite. Have to bring treats to the party? Can’t go wrong with chocolate chip cookies. Adults and kids alike, we all love chocolate chip cookies.
Now, what is the universal favorite go-to store bought cookies? Oreos! We dunk ’em in milk, mash them into milk-shakes, and grind them into pie crusts. I’ve even seen oreo flavored milk. We’ve all been unlocking the magic since before we can remember.
So how do you improve on two of the most popular cookies ever? Drum roll please…..
Stuff the oreo into the chocolate chip cookie!
A marriage made in heaven… literally.
But don’t take my word for it. Whip up a batch and see for yourself. (You won’t be sorry!)
- 2 sticks softened butter (1 cup)
- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla
- 3½ -4 cups flour (I live at about 5000 ft, and I like all my cookies with an extra ½ cup of flour. It makes them puffier. Thus the range.)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 10 oz bag of chocolate chips
- 1 package of Double Stuff Oreo Cookies
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, place a scoop of dough on top of the Oreo Cookie. Now take another scoop of dough and place on the bottom of the Oreo Cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo Cookie is enclosed in dough. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve with a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
- Makes 2-3 dozen large cookies. (Original recipe said 2 dozen, but it made 3 dozen for me!)
