I am always looking for new recipes to add to my baking repotoire. One of my friends at BU shared this recipe with me, along with the message “BAKE THIS!” I am usually not a huge fan of Oreos, but how can you resist a cookie baked inside another cookie?
This delicious dessert comes from another fellow baking blog, Becky Bakes, and the original recipe can be found here. She provides her own recipe for chocolate chip cookies, but I am partial to my edited Nestle one, so that’s what I will be using. Feel free to use either version, or your own creation.
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter spread
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup egg substitute
2 cups (12 oz package) of chocolate chips, or any chopped chocolate
1 cup chopped nuts (if desired)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add egg substitute slowly, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts.
Wet your hands a little before you start assembling the cookies. It will make things much easier! Place a scoop of the chocolate chip cookie dough in your palm, then place an Oreo on top. Place another scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough on top. Roll the dough around in your hands like a ball, until the edges are sealed. Be careful not to roll the cookie with too much pressure, otherwise you’ll crack the Oreo. Put cookie on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake cookies for 9-13 minutes, or until golden brown.
I made my cookies a little big, so I only got 14 cookies out of this recipe, but this was before I discovered the trick of getting your hands wet. I think you’ll be able to get almost 2-dozen cookies out of this recipe. They are gooey and delicious, and extremely rich! My view of Oreos has been changed forever.
Let me know how it goes for you guys when you try this recipe (or if you’ve tried any other recipe on the site). Please leave comments! I love to hear from you. Have fun baking–it’s a cake walk!
Baker’s Note: After I initially posted this recipe, I called my dad to let him know the outcome of these delicious, but GIANT cookies, and he had a great tip–mini Oreos! If you don’t mind giving up Double Stuffed, mini Oreos would make a great center for a more normal sized cookie. Thanks Dad!
