Yup! Don’t ya know it, I actually did! A couple of days ago Jay e-mailed me a link to Buns in My Oven blog. I have to say, take a look at it-its an absolutely fantastic site. I am totally addicted to it now. She doesn’t publish a lot of recipes for entrée type items, but oh my….the desserts. Stunning! She seems to love peanut butter just as I do as well, which is very endearing. Anyway, recently she posted a recipe for Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. I absolutely could not stand it until I tried it out. What can I say that you already haven’t imagined? These cookies are just unbelievable, for so many reasons. Of course they are wonderfully yummy. They are also outrageously huge! Good Lord! I really had some fun making this recipe because it was my first real use of my new Kitchen Aid Stand mixer.
Yay, oh Yay! Thanks so much Mom and Da. This stand mixer rocks! In addition, I’ve never really baked anything that made me giggle so much during the process. I was literally giddy the whole time and each time Jay stopped into the kitchen, he began laughing as well. I guess they really are that ridiculous. So how are these mood boosting cookies made? Basically you make the chocolate chip cookie dough and then you place one cookie scoop full of dough on the top and bottom of an Oreo cookie.
You then pinch the edges together around said Oreo and bake it.
Voila! I would say they are little chunks of heaven, but as I mentioned before these cookies are far from little. They are the “Big Hosses” of the cookie world.
Needless to say, we couldn’t have eaten all of these huge cookies ourselves….Well, actually we probably could have, but what with the supposed diet and all….So I made cute “cookie bomb” packages and sent them off with friends.
You’ve gotta try ’em.
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe from Buns in My Oven)
* 2 sticks butter, softened
* 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
* 1 cup white sugar
* 2 large eggs
* 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
* 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
* 1 package Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the bowl of a stand mixer (that your parents may have gotten you for Christmas…Thanks bunches again Mom and Da) cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the wet mixture and combine thoroughly. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Chill the dough for 15 minutes to make it easier to work with and to keep the dough from spreading when baking.
Using a cookie scoop place one scoop of dough on top of a Oreo Cookie. Place another single scoop on the bottom of the Oreo to creat a cookie sandwich. Seal the edges together to completely close in the Oreo.
Place the balls of cookie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 9-13 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
