Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I usually don't rush to blog a recipe, but after posting this camera-phone photo:

to Facebook last night, I was bombarded with demands requests for the recipe, so I am posting it now.  (And seriously - the quality of the photo is AWFUL, but the awesomeness of the cookie still comes through.)

We had a work potluck yesterday, so I made these and another dessert that wasn't nearly as popular :)

I found the recipe for these on Pinterest, but the link I had pinned wouldn't load, so I googled it and found an adaptation of the pinned recipe on another baking blog. I followed some of the suggestions in the comments - most notably, I reduced the flour to three cups. I also used double-stuffed Oreos, which was kinda insane.

My batch yielded 20 substantial cookies. These puppies were H-E-A-V-Y. I baked nine on each sheet, as opposed to my usual 12-16.

They taste absolutely fantastic. I expected the Oreo (or generic Oreo, if you're me) to get kind of soggy or break apart, and it didn't. The chocolate chip cookie recipe is so good that I might just might make it my go-to recipe (sans Oreo cookie).

I had one. It felt like I'd eaten four cookies. I wanted to curl up with a glass of milk and take a nap. Alas, I had to work, but you get the idea.

Do yourself a favor. Do your friends and family a favor. Make these easy-yet-impressive cookies. Just don't make them all the time :)

2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 pkg. Oreo cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

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 golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies.
