Frosted Crushed oreo milk chocolate chip cookies

Frosted Crushed oreo chocolate chip cookies

So I had a lot of oreos and decided to make two treats with them. These are a chocolate cookie with crushed oreos. These did not flatten out at all,so they look like mounds! Next time I will likely smoosh them a bit to flatten them. would not bake these longer than 10 minutes because they might dry out.

Reminders – scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the correct amount. I chilled these for a few hours because I always chill my cookie dough in hopes they do not flatten too much. And, preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking

Football Friday treats – divisional playoff weekend

Cake mix cookies stuffed with oreos and topped with fudge frosting

The football Friday treat for NFL Divisional playoff weekend – cake mix cookies, stuffed with Oreos and topped with a fudge frosting. I think they worthy of something as big as divisional playoff weekend. Go Bills!

The only reminders I have is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp. Also,take them out after about 10 minutes. They may not look “done,” but if you leave them in too long, they could try out. Oh, and if you don’t want the fudge frosting, you can sprinkle the warm cookies with powdered sugar instead.

Two bites by the cookie monster!

  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Cool completely. Makes 9 cookies.

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

On occasion, I am asked “do you ever bake anything healthy?” For the most part, probably not. But today, I present you with oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They have oatmeal, so that makes them healthy, right? 😏

Remember – 1) to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup. 2) scoop out your dough and then chill it for a few hours. 3) preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.

Cookie monster hasn’t gotten to them yet!
  • Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour (scooped from your flour container into your measuring cup)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – combine dry ingredients, including oats. Add oil. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in chips. Scoop out 1/4 cuos of dough. Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Stagger cookies on prepared sheet. Bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until you see light golden patches on top. Cool completely.

Frosting cancels out any health benefits, I think!

Oreo brownie cookies with chocolate ganache

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!

A reminder to scoop your flour from your flour bag into you measuring cup. Also,form your dough into high mounds and chill these overnight. And,preheat your oven for 20 minutes before baking so your oven cycles to the right temp for baking

Still trying to use up my extra large box of Oreos,so I decided to finely crush them up, toss them in my brownie mix cookies. Then frost them with chocolate ganache (a fancy name for melted chocolate) and top with more finely crushed Oreos. These came out a little flatter than I prefer, so I may add a little more flour and a tbs of cornstarch next time to see if that helps them stay puffier.

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbs water
  • 3 /4 cup finely crushed oreos

Directions – combine brownie mix, flour, vegetable oil, eggs, and water. Blend in crushed Oreos. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dpugh. chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool completley.

  • Ganache ingredients
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions – in a microwave safe bowl,heat both types of chips for one minute. Set aside. In another microwave safe bowl, heat cream for one minute. Pour over chips, let set 10 minutes. Stir smooth. Frost completely cooled cookies. Top with crushed Oreos. Store in covered container.

I went a little crazy with the ganache!

Pumpkin cake/bars with vanilla frosting

Pumpkin cake/bars

Fall is here, so I decided to make something pumpkin flavored. These are somewhere between a cake and a bar cookie. I went with a vanilla frosting, but a cream cheese or brown butter one would work well too.

A little extra powdered sugar on top for extra sweetness
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup oil
  • 15 oz can of pure pumpkin
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes so your oven gets to the right temperature for baking. Spray a 10×15 pan with baking spray. In a bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, oil and eggs. Blend in dry ingredients. Spread into prepared pan. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few crumbs.

  • Frosting
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 tbs milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Brownie mix cookies with peanut butter chips

Brownie mix cookies with peanuy butter chips

Another simple recipe that starts with a mix. The first time I had these was when I was in college (yup, an eternity ago). The recipe is from Pillsbury from all those years ago.. Just a few ingredients needed. The key with these is to make sure you do not overbake them…if you do, they’ll be dry. If you take them out too early, they may be a little gushy, but that is not a bad thing, is it ?

  • Ingredients
  • 1 brownie mix
  • 1/2 cup flour (spooned from your flour bag into your measuring cup yo get the right amount)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips

Direction – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners or parchment paper. Set aside. In a bowl, combine brownie mix and flour. Blend in eggs, oil, vanilla and water. Fold in chips. Scoop out 3 tbs dough and form into mounds. Stagger on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Tops will be just set. Cool completley. Store in covered container.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day. Remember to be kind. Everyone is fighting some sort of battle, some more difficult than others.
