I saw this mention numerous time around the foodie blogosphere but hadn’t had a chance to try making them yet. They don’t exactly seem like the type of cookie you make to just have on hand for lunches considering one cookie is basically like eating two chocolate chip cookies plus an Oreo cookie, so I had been waiting for a special occasion.We had friends over for a BBQ on the weekend and it seemed like the perfect time to try making them. Oddly enough earlier that day a friend had asked me on Facebook where my recipe for stuffed cookies was because he was sure it was something I had already made.
All the recipes I had seen called for using Oreos but when I went to the Coop for supplies Fudgee-O’s were also on sale, so I made my cookies using both Oreos and Fudgee-O’s. The recipe I used came on suggestion of the friend who had been looking for my non-existent recipe.
- 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.
Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies.
These were delicious. I thought they would be tooth rotting sweet, but they actually aren’t that bad. The chocolate chip cookie part isn’t as sweet as some chocolate chip cookies can be, so they don’t give you a sugar headache, although I don’t think I’d want to eat too many in a row! They are definitely gigantic though, and were well received by our BBQ supper guests.
As my friend Sara described them, “its a cookie, inside a cookie!!!”
Will I make these again? Oh yes.
