now on to the recipe
these are shockingly good. I am not an oreo fan so I believe if you are, they may even be better....
I am going to try those blonde oreo cookies maybe in a peanut butter cookie recipe later....I will let you know how that turns out...but my mouth is sort of watering in anticipation already.
take your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
I just used a standard one
2 sticks softened butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 packed brown sugar
(cream together...I used my food processor as my beaters are kaput and I love my food processor)
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla (don't use that imitation stuff...just splurge and buy a bottle of the real stuff already)
(blend these together)
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
(blend together...when using the food processor, scrape down the sides before adding the flour and then pulse until it looks all blended...10 -12 pulses)
1 10oz bag of chocolate chips (I stir these in sep in the food processor because otherwise they sometimes get a little ground up)
so your cookie dough is made
open you package of double stuff oreos (or whatever kind you fancy...I saw those mint ones and thought they might be good too)
take about a tablespoon's worth of dough and plop it in your floured (very important...I learned my lesson afte rthe messy 1st batch to flour my hands)hand...flatten it a bit and put your oreo cookie in the center.
squish the dough up the sides of the cookie as best you can and place another tablespoon on top of the oreo and do the same thing....basically, you are taking two chocolate chip cookies and wrapping them around an oreo.
I used the airpans (those air pocketed cookie sheets...thank you Jake....they have proven to be an awesome Christmas present)and baked at 350 for about 14 mins. If you like them softish, this should be great. I like them a little firmer so I put them back in for another 3 mins or so.
let them sit on the pan for at least 5 mins before transferring them to a wire cookie rack
the recipe makes about 2 dozen giant cookies.
and they are delicioius.
they disappeared before I could get pictures (fancy that) but I am pretty sure you can google them since I know I am not the ONLY one to have thought of this business.
I am thinking peanut butter chocolate chip with the golden oreos in the center may just about be nirvana!!!
