These are the queen of stuffed cookies. An Oreo baked inside a chocolate chip cookie. And they are a request of one of my goddaughters, Sara, for her birthday party. Rob may or may not have taste tested one, so he can vouch for me at the family party tomorrow 🙂
The trick to this is to not use too much dough to surround the Oreo. Use 1 1/2 tbs on top and 1 1/2 tbs on the bottom of each Oreo. That way they are nice and puffy and perfect looking.
Couple of other tips – I also like to use cornstarch to keep the cookies from spreading too much… Spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup… Chill the cookies at least for a few hours.. And preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3 /4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1,tbs cornstarch
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Directions – cream butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs., fold in dry ingredients. Blend in chips. Scoop out 11/2 tbs of dough (I used a cookie scoop), slightly flatten, place an Oreo on top. Scoop out another 11/2 tbs dough, slightly flatten., place on top of Oreo. Mold dough around to completely cover cookie. Chill a few hours in fridge. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheet that’s been lined with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper, stagger cookies. (See pic above)
Bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until you see a few golden patches on top and bottoms of cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely. Store in covered container.
Thanks so much for stopping by today., remember to be kind to others, and yourself too. We are all battling something.
