I have been eyeballing this recipe over at Picky Palate for about a month now. My heart kept saying, "Make them! Make them! Make them!" But my bathroom scale kept screaming, "Don't you dare do it!"
OH! I DID IT ALRIGHT! You can't tell from the picture but these cookies are gigantic! About three times the size of a normal chocolate chip cookie. But I'm so glad I tried them out. They were pretty darn good and everyone was excited to see the surprise Oreo inside. They are definitely a cookie that you should share with someone else. That is unless you're up for the challenge. Man versus Gigantic Cookie! Yum!!! The original recipe and article can be found over on Picky Palate's blog. Check it out.
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source: Picky Palate
2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 c. light brown sugar, packed
1 c. granulated sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
3 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag Oreo Cookies (I used the double stuff)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2. 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 cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve with a tall glass of milk!
Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies!
