There is just one word to describe these cookies: ridiculous. In the best way possible, of course. A cookie within a cookie is just pure genius. Like, a "why didn't I think of that?" kind of genius. Luckily for all of us, Jenny at Picky Palate did think of it, and I'm here to vouch for her recipe.
If you want to make something completely over-the-top and indulgent that is sure to impress your friends (and even your enemies), you should consider making these cookies. That's really all I have to say about that.
Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Picky Palate
Makes ~16 cookies
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 package Oreo Cookies (regular or 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, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients in 3 additions until just combined, then stir in chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop, take one scoop of cookie dough and place it on top of an Oreo in your palm. Take another scoop of dough and place it on the bottom of the Oreo. Seal the edges together by pressing and cupping in your hand until the Oreo is enclosed with dough.
3. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake 9-13 minutes or until they reach your preferred doneness. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
