Gluttony at it’s Finest

17 Jul

Today I finally took a break from my two most recent obsessions (Pinterest & Google+) to spend some quality minutes in the kitchen baking. It’s been a while since I’ve covered myself and my counter in flour, and I’ve been eying this recipe for a while so I figured now was the time!

My friends, this is worth the extra 15 minutes on the treadmill. Trust me.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies (from a great blog Buns In My Oven… and the the baby kind)

  • 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 – I used Double Stuff

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer (I used a hand mixer), 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 an Oreo cookie. Place another single scoop on the bottom of the Oreo to create 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.

I don’t know what you’re waiting for. Go make this NOW. And you can thank me later.

Nom nom nom!
