I made some brownies the other day with the intention of bringing the rest to work, but the recipe only made 9 and Rob ate 2. If my math is correct, that is 7 to bring into work tomorrow. Ohhhhh, that will not work. You see, my mom (and everyone in my family) always prepares way too much food. Our philosophy is better too much than not enough. So I tweaked a cookie recipe and am using a dry white cake mix instead of all the flour recipe calls for. And I am adding milk chocolate chips. And we have some open bags Oreos, so they will be stuffed with Oreos. All this for a football Friday at ESPN Radio.
You can use whatever cake mix you want, I am going with white. I am also using milk chocolate chips.
Ingredients – 3/4 cup butter softened to room temperature, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 cups dry cake mix, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 cup milk chocolate chips, Oreos.
Directions – beat butter, brown sugar and sugar on medium speed 1 minute.
Add egg and vanilla. Then, fold in dry ingredients.
Stir in chips.
Scoop out some cookie dough and divide in half. Gently press 1/2 piece of dough flat.
Top with an Oreo.
Place the other flattened half on top.
Chill for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with non stick baking liners. Stagger cookies 8 to a sheet.
Bake 12-16 minutes (you will see light golden spots on top ).
Let cool on sheet 5 minutes. Let cool completely and store in covered container.
