What am I baking?September 20, 2012
It seems that Oreos are in the air. I was just about to post the following, when I read Butter’s post on Oreo Truffles.
This is another in my series of discoveries on recipes from ingredients that I normally would not consider to be ingredients (such as PopTarts) and now, Oreos.
- 2 sticks 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 large cookies.
This recipe is from Yahoo’s observance of Oreos 100th birthday in March 2012. Did you know that the design on the cookie was flowers?
