What to eat -Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have no idea where I first saw this recipe. It was last week. I know that. During one of our many days home in the snowstorm. When I first saw it, I didn't think that I would try it. I mean, come on. I love cookies but I think I would just like them separate. Chocolate chip in one hand and an Oreo in the other, thank you very much. But the blog said she thought the same thing and tried it anyway. She made such a great argument and was so convincing that I bought double stuff Oreos on Saturday night when I finally ventured out of the house. I hadn't left the house since Monday night!

Sunday, Savanna offered to help make them and I could not find where I had first seen the cookies. I looked up "Oreo stuffed" and Wow! These cookies are everywhere! I picked one. Now I can't even find that blog. But I think I found the source tonight. Right here.

2 sticks softened butter

3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar

1 Cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 Tablespoon pure vanilla

3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

10 oz bag chocolate chips

1 bag Oreo Cookies, I used the double stuff

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

2. 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 cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy!

Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE Cookies .

We used the least amount of cookie dough that we could and still cover up the double stuff Oreo.
A little tip. I accidentally left some sitting on a baking stone in the oven over night. They were hard as rocks. I couldn't imagine letting them go to waste. The next day we each dropped one in a shallow bowl with a little milk went after it with a fork. No wasting good chocolate!

I can attest that they were yummy...but I can only eat just one and have cold milk on hand.
