Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today at work we had a bridal shower for Amanda and I got to try these yummy cookies Marlene made. I wasn't sure if they would taste very good with all that chocolate (remember I'm not a chocolate lover). I do however like chocolate chip cookies AND I like double stuffed Oreos. Surprisingly the different flavors went together really well. I liked them a lot! This is where she got the recipe Picky Palate
 Look how tasty that looks!!!
I'll post the recipe after this. I also tried Chicken Salad from Apple Spice Junction. We put it on croissants and it was so yummy! I still like Utah Valley Regional Medical Center's better but I know Amanda doesn't like all those onions.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe from the fantabulous Jenny of Picky Palate

2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 pkg. Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.
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 golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
NOTE: Some bakers have had some trouble with their dough spreading too much during baking. If that becomes a problem, throw the dough balls into the fridge for a quick chill before baking. That should solve the dilemma beautifully:-)
Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies


  1. You are correct. I do not like all those onions. You have a good memory. :) Apple Spice was delish! :)
