Adventures in Cooking: Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oreos + Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
= Yummy (huge) cookies

Ok, here's the deal. I can't take credit for baking this cookie - Maribeth Reisbeck made them after I shared the original link - www.beckybakes.net via a Facebook post.

I wanted to try them, but didn't have a chance to bake them first....something about I don't know WORK (lol) that got in the way of playing....

So with that said...everyone's asked....
The cookies are good. They are VERY rich. 

At the most you'll probably want to eat one with a glass of milk or water. I ate half of a cookie and then several hours later, ate the other half of another cookie. (I tried to be good).

They aren't the "best and greatest" cookie - or as my cousin likes to day they aren't "all that and a bag of chips" - (you probably won't sell your soul to have one)....but they are really good.

I can totally see making these as a special treat for a party or even for an office bribe (I mean treat). 

I think it would be fun to experiment with the types of cookies you "stuffed" in the chocolate chip cookie dough. One of my friends tried it today with Nutter Butter cookies. She said that was a successful match of cookie dough and cookie. I could also see making them stuffed with Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies. (Hum... a box is coming later this month).

But in general, if cabin fever has set in, and you are looking for something sweet to make the time go by a bit faster, these are probably the cookie for you. I'll bet kidlets would even have fun smooshing the dough around the cookie - especially if they got to sample the dough.

You could probably even substitute your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe for this one - just make enough to make two dozen really big cookies (basically 48 "regular" size cookies that are wrapped around 24 Oreos).. 


Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks (1 C.) softened butter
3/4 C. packed light brown sugar
1 C. granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 T. pure vanilla
3 1/2 C. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 pkg. Oreo cookies

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.

3) In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.

4) 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.

5) Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies.
