Now that it is Christmas time, I have several reasons to bake for parties and get-togethers. Thanks to Pinterest, new recipes are easier than ever to find. I recently pinned this cookie that made my eyes light up. So, with the help of my friend, we decided to give it a try yesterday; with a twist.
Oreo Stuffed Cookies. Quite possibly the best cookie I have ever made.
If you like chocolate, cookies, oreos, eating, sugar comas or all the above, give this recipe a try.
You will need:
2 pouches of cookie mix + ingredients listed on the back of the package (this made about 21 Oreo stuffed cookies total)
1 bag of double stuff Oreos
Cooking utensils, cooling rack, baking sheets, oven, etc.
The original recipe called for homemade cookie dough. I am too impatient to make homemade cookie dough, so we bought Betty Crocker pouch cookie mix. We tried two different kinds, double chocolate chunk and regular chocolate chip cookie dough.
Make the cookie dough as recommended on the back of the pouch. Once the cookie dough is prepared, try your best not to eat the dough. This is always the hardest part for me, but you need as much dough as possible for this recipe!
Grab a spoon and start piling on the cookie dough; enough to completely cover the Oreo cookie.
Bake the cookies on a nonstick cookie sheet. We baked ours for 9 minutes. Once you pull the cookies out of the oven, they will look kind of weird. We thought they were ruined! So we grabbed two spatulas and started to "smoosh" the chocolate chip cookie in toward the Oreo. Ta-da! It saved the day...
Cut two cookies in half, one of each flavor, and vote on which is the best. We decided that the double chocolate chunk Oreo stuffed cookies were the best. It sounds like too much chocolate, but oh.my.goodness. they are amazing. Very fudgey, and the "stuff" in the double stuffed Oreos oozes out of the cookie when served warm.
So if you are looking for a new cookie recipe to take to your next Christmas party, you miiiight want to bake these!
