My bestie and I constantly tag each other over Facebook and Instagram with food posts. Whether this be healthy recipes, restaurants, must eats or something she tells me I should bake, its back and forth…this time we did something about it.
Now she’s quite the foodie herself and knows how to eat and choose a good meal when out, but I think I may have a little bit more baking experience. We love Oreos but neither of us regularly buy Oreos so it was time to #treatyourself a.k.a. ourselves 🙂
Combining our expertise…chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Oreos. Now we saw this post online a while ago (can’t take credit for the idea) but couldn’t find it again so we improvised. I made the cookie dough and she bought the Oreos. I’ve also been loving Buzzfeed’s new page called Tastyand wanted to see if I could produce the same type of birds eye view video, it worked! You’d laugh if you saw how my camera was set-up…I don’t own a tripod!
I’ve posted this chocolate chip cookie recipe before but here’s a video to see it being mixed in action…it only takes 1 minute. JUST KIDDING, but is fairly quick if you don’t have to read a recipe anymore.
Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 cup butter (I use ½ margarine, ½ butter)
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup white sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1. Cream softened butters and sugars together.
2. Continue beating in eggs and vanilla.
3. Continue to beat in 1 cup flour, baking soda and salt. Clean beaters with washed fingers.
4. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, stir in remaining flour and chocolate chips, until combined. Dough should be mushy and gooey…I suggested trying some…you know, just in case it’s bad.
5. Preheat oven to 375F. Drop cookie dough by tbsp onto cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.
Add the Oreos!
We tried two different methods, my bestie took one Oreo and just covered it in cookie dough, around all the edges so you couldn’t see the Oreo. I tried a different method using my scooper! I put a little bit on the bottom, an oreo squished on top, scooped that onto the tray. Then repeated the first bit with a little bit more dough and put it on top…an oreo sandwich.
I also think baking the cookies at 375 for about 10-12 minutes creates a baked, but definitely doughy cookie. Baking at 350 for closer to 15 minutes allows for all the dough to bake through but the outside was too crunchy for my liking.
Honestly not as good as we thought, but that definitely didn’t stop us from eating WAY too many. We found the oreo to kind of produce a minty flavour and not mix as well with the cookie flavour. Perhaps its because the chocolate wafer on the oreo is not the same chocolate as the semi-sweet chips I use!
We had a blast nonetheless making videos, taking pictures and eating sugar until we wanted to throw up.
