Now a word of advice on these; most cookies are best right out of the oven, my husband rarely eats any cookie unless it is still warm, but these get better with age, trust me on this. If you eat them within the first few hours after having been baked, you loose the taste of the Oreo. It is still delicious, but you can't make a distinction between the chocolate chip cookie and the Oreo. I was kind of disappointed when I first made these, they were good, but didn't taste much different than a regular chocolate chip cookie and I wondered what I was doing with these extra calories that didn't change the flavor. However, when I opened the cookie jar the next morning for breakfast : ) I was pleasantly surprised to find out the cookies tasted way better the next day and you could definitely taste the Oreo, yummy! So do yourself a favor and bake these ahead of time!
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
From: Picky Palate
Time: 30 minutes-give or take
Yields: 2 dozen large cookies
1 C softened butter
3/4 C packed brown sugar
1 C sugar
2 large eggs
1 T vanilla extract
3 1/2 C flour
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 package Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugar until well combined (about 4 minutes). Add in eggs and vanilla until combined.
In a separate bowl whisk the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop take two scoops of cookie dough placing one on either side of the oreo cookie.
Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo is enclosed with dough.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake cookies for 9-13 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cool flat surface. Remember, they taste best the next day!
