First – I creamed butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. The butter really does have to be softened I found out. Creaming hard butter = mess! I ended up having to take the butter (which was covered in sugar) out and defrost it in the microwave for 30 seconds first!
See – look how pretty it is! Okay – the pictures suck – I know. My sister scolded me for using the flash all the time so now I try to use this auto-setting but that sucks in my dimly lit galley kitchen. Bear with me. The money shot at the end is drool-worthy!
It’s impossible to photograph yourself beating in flour with a jacked up $10 one beater mixer. Look at that lonely beater.
After that I stirred in chocolate & peanut butter chips – decided to be a bit wacky! Then I had to take an oreo and wrap the dough around it.
Mind you – Larry walked in during this part of the process and gasped at how huge the cookies were. But just think – I had to wrap a whole Oreo inside! You can’t be dainty when you’re eating a cookie stuffed with a cookie!!
I baked them for about 9-11 minutes – I had two pans of them so it took a little longer and they were ginormous.
And there you go – an Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie! I can’t say they’re the best cookies I’ve ever had but they were gone in an instant at the church picnic. Kids (and adults) eyes lit up when they were told what was inside these puppies!
They are REALLY rich – half a cookie was really enough for me. I think if I were to make these again – I would use the mini-Oreos. That way you still get the cookie crunch and novelty of it without spending a days worth of caloric intake on one cookie.
So – I hope you’ll explore all the interesting cookie recipes and hey – vote for mine if you feel like it!
