After seeing two of my friends make Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies, I had to give it a go. And since I was craving something chocolatey today, it was kind of like destiny, really.
I always use the chocolate chip recipe on the back of the back of Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips with 2 small modifications. I use dark brown sugar instead of light brown and I don’t always use vanilla. Honestly? I can never really tell the difference when I use vanilla so it’s no big whoop to me. And using dark brown sugar makes the cookies turn out a more caramel color, which I find aesthetically pleasing. Tonight was a real treat because I got to bake cookies with someone who had never made them from scratch. She did an awesome job.
I love baking cookies. It’s a fun, kind of messy science project. You mix a whole bunch of precisely measured ingredients together. And when you do it right, the final result is super tasty. What’s not to love about that?
Anyway, if you look at some of the recipes online, the Oreos are completely engulfed top and bottom with chocolate chip cookie dough. And as much as I love sweets, that is a little too decadent even for me. So instead of doing that, we placed the Oreos on the cookie sheet and put a nice big dollop of chocolate chip cookie dough on top of them. The cookies went into the oven at 350 for about 15 – 16 minutes.
As they were cooking, the chocolate chip cookie dough slowly covered over the Oreo. The end result is an absolutely delicious and decadent super cookie.
We made almost 3 dozen cookies. As I type this, there are closer to 2 dozen cookies left. You can’t eat just one.
