The other day, one of my favorite people ever, Leslie author of Little Miss, sent me an email with a link and the question “Does this constitute as food porn?” The answer was a definitive yes because the link was an article by Bon Appetit of a recipe originally posted by Picky Palate of what could be called “The Ultimate Gluttony Cookie: Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies”.
Somehow this seems like the most American recipe I’ve seen in a long time and the Weight Watcher in me knew it was risky for me to make, but let’s face it: Oreos and Chocolate Chip Cookies? Together? Sign me up!
It was very easy to make the cookies, because it involves making chocolate chip cookie dough and molding it like play-doh around an oreo. (My play-doh skills came in handy!) I used the cookie dough recipe listed below, but it was a little dry for my tastes (I’m a chewy, gooey cookie person). Next time, I’m going to try a different dough recipe.
Word of Warning: the cookies are HUGE! I made 18 using double-stuffed oreos, so next time I’m going to try regular oreos and swapping regular chocolate chips for minis or small chunks. But the cookies were AMAZING!
- 2 sticks softened butter
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 10 oz bag chocolate chips
- 1 pkg. double stuffed Oreo cookies (at least 18 cookies)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
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 golden brown.
Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
