Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ridiculous. Decadent. Insane. Gargantuan.


You just have to trust me on this one. It's a cookie inside of a cookie. How can it not be amazing?

There's not really a whole lot else to say. Except maybe - Wow. Combining two of my favorite cookies into one? Ingenious!

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from: Picky Palate

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
27 Double Stuf Oreo cookies (about 1 package)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In the large work bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix until combined.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture 1 cup at a time, making sure flour is incorporated before adding more. Mix in chocolate chips.

Place 1 tablespoon of cooking dough on top of an Oreo cookie. Place a second tablespoon underneath. Gently press the dough down around the Oreo, sealing the cookie dough edges together so that no Oreo shows through. Transfer the cookie to a prepared baking sheet and repeat, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between each cookie. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until cookies are a pale golden brown. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Makes: about 27 cookies

Adam and I were having company over for dinner on Friday, and I wasn't really in the mood to make anything too crazy or fancy for dessert. I had a few suggestions for either stuffed cookies or a trifle, both of which sounded tasty and easy. So I called Adam and asked if he had a preference. The Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip cookie was the first option... we didn't even get to option B. "Oh my. That sounds so good. Make that." was all I heard. So cookies it was.

These actually came together and were much easier than I had anticipated. And yes, there is definitely a reason these are popping up all over the web, they are really just that good. You really need to get on board and try these -- now.

  12. I saw these on picky palate, and had to quickly close the webpage before I convinced myself to run out and by the ingredients. These are so not on my diet!

  13. This is just wrong. It throws the whole kidle eat the middle thing right out the window. Sacrilege

  14. I was so excited when I saw this recipe on Tue that I had to make them today, Sat.

    I’m no baker. I’m one of those people who loves to read recipes and reviews but I’m scared to try anything, even though I have a fabulous KitchenAid mixer.

    So tonight I had six people over, and being the Oreo’s 100th Anniversary Week, I had to make these.

    Here are a few hints for the non-bakers.

    The recipe is easy to follow. However, with the first few, I kind of moved them around my hands like someone making meatballs would. That ended up with a lot of broken Oreos within the choc chip cookie batter, although no one would probably know the difference. But I did learn that working with your fingers vs. the palms of your hands DEFINITELY fixes that problem.

    The other thing is you really can’t bury more than six Oreos into the batter before it’s time to put the batter into the fridge for a good thirty minutes. It just gets WAY too soft/warm/melty.

    So now you’ve made six cookie/Oreo bombs, refrigerated the dough and made six more and put them on your fancy-schmancy Silpat, and baked them. My oven took a good 20 minutes. These, like I said, are bombs, not cookies. They’re huge.

    Everyone I made them for said they were DELICIOUS but tasted exactly as if I had baked chocolate chip cookies and put them on a plate with a side of Oreos. In other words, not worth the effort. Bake a cookie, take a bite, them take a bite of an Oreo and you get the same (albeit easy) thing.

    Like someone said above, I bet these would be SICK (in an amazing way) with a drop of peppermint extract!

    OH, PS…With this recipe I made 22 Oreo-stuffed cookies and put the rest of the batter in the freezer, which will easily make an additional dozen regular chocolate chip cookies. No one can eat more than two or three of these and it definitely makes more than the two dozen the recipe says.

    Anyway, they sound AMAAAAAAZING...but I don't know if they're worth the effort. Just bake cookies, take a bite, then bite into an Oreo. Same thing... :(
