Hey y'all! Since a couple of weeks before Christmas, I have had a powerful hankerin' for something I read about on The Facebook. A friend of mine was talking about how her daughter had made the best dang cookies in the world.
They were Oreos baked inside chocolate chip cookies.
Now, does that sound sinful, or what?
I swear, I have not been able to get that off my mind...even with all the crap and sweets I ate over the holidays, I still wanted me some of those! So, I took matters in to my own hands last night, and made me some. I'm gonna show y'all how to do it, too!
Be sure and do exactly what it says on the chocolate chip package...I mean, like sifting your dry ingredients, and putting the eggs in at the right time. Do exactly what they say. Trust me...THEY KNOW.
You want to get your batter beat up real good, too...use a rubber scraper and run it backwards from the way your mixing bowl is turning. Trust me, this'll help.
Now, I started thinking to myself (having never seen one of these fabled Oreo/Chocolate Chip cookies), that those were gonna be some jumboass cookies. I couldn't quite wrap my brain around how to wrap the Oreos up in cookie dough. So, I decided to make a big ol' cookie pie deal like they do at The Cookie Co. in the mall. So, I greased me up a throw-away round pan, and went to spreading the dough out.
You use half of the dough...spread out. A little tip would be this: You want to use a spoon, and dip it in water first. Just keep dipping the spoon in water, and it'll help you spread the dough out evenly.
Now, I do not know exactly how you want to do this, but I decided to break up the Oreo cookies, instead of smashin' 'em down whole. So...break up some Oreos.
About this many.
Then distribute the Oreos evenly on the dough...
Spread the rest of the dough on top of 'em...being sure to use your wet spoon and all.
And WALLA! That bad boy is ready to pop in the oven!
Now, our oven runs a little hot, so instead of 375, I set mine on 365 for 20 minutes.
What's the verdict?
Best dang cookie I think I've ever eaten!!!
Make you some! DO IT!!!
