Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can't BELIEVE I never blogged about these. (Picture from the linked Becky Bakes blog!).

Should you ever need a "stop everyone in their tracks and instantly become the belle of the ball" treat to bring somewhere, these are your guys.

Holy crap.

Words can hardly explain.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

recipe from the fantabulous Jenny of Picky Palate

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 (not that I was even using a scoop, but I smooshed a small ball flat in my hand, sat an oreo on it, put another smooshed cookie dough and sealed up the edges. If you use too much cookie dough, they turn out MONSTROUS) .  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.

GAH! So amazing.

Becky also has a recipe for Nutter Butter stuffed chocolate cookies, but I haven't tried them  yet. I'm worried that once I do I will never eat anything else in my entire life.
