Whoever came up with this idea is a total genius! Why didn't I think of this before?? An Oreo cookie inside of a homemade chocolate chip cookie is having "The Best of Both Worlds."
I only made 2 of these yesterday when I made a batch of cookies for my husband, because if I didn't like them, I didn't want to waste my Oreos. That would have been a crime! :) But now I am wishing I had made more of them! They are pretty rich but very very good!
Cookie dough (homemade or store bought)
Oreos - I think double stuff would have been better
1. Mix up your cookie dough (if you have store bought, skip to number 2)
2. Take an Oreo and place a scoop of cookie dough on top and a scoop on bottom of the cookie.
3. Make sure the dough covers the Oreo entirely. (it may crack or break some)
4. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes
5. Let cool and enjoy!!
Warning: These make very large cookies!
Don't have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe?
Here's my favorite!
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup shortening
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Cream sugars, butter, and shortening together. Add egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in nuts and chips. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-9 minutes.
I also saw a suggestion for putting a nutter butter inside...What would you put inside your cookie?
