Oreo cookie butter cookies

 I saw this oreo cookie spread at the grocery store and thought “I HAVE to bake something with this”  crushed oreos and butter and sugar?   Yes, please!  The recipe is really simple.  I basically took one of my peanut butter cookie recipes and substituted the oreo cookie butter/spread for the peanut butter.  I think the onlything i would change for next time is to chill the dough.  I prefer puffy cookies.  And chilled dough gives you puffy cookies.  You can also frost these or make them into sandwich cookies if you want, once they are completely cooled.

Ingredients –  1 cup shortening, 1 cup oreo cookie spread (I used a 13 ounce jar), 1 cup sugar,  1 cup brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 1/2 cups flour (scooped from a flour bag or flour container into your measuring cup, using a spoon)

Directions – cream shortening, oreo cookie spread, sugar, and brown sugar.  Mix in eggs.  Fold in dry ingredients.  Roll 4 tbs dough into balls.  (You can chill for an hour or so if you want).  Stagger cookies on cookie sheet that has been lined with non baking sheets like this.

Bake in an oven that has been preheated to 375 degrees for 9 to 14 minutes.  Immediately sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Cool completely. You may frost with your favorite frosting.   Store in covered container.
