Chocolate Chip or Oreo?

Thank’s to Jenny of the Picky Palate , the creator of this insane cookie, you will never be forced to pick sides ever again.  Yes, you can have your cake (or cookie) and eat it too!  I came across these cookies when looking through the amazing pictures on Foodgawker.  I saw the picture submitted by Amy of Very Culinary and I knew I had to make them.  This week my friends at my old job were complaining about me not baking for them in a long time.  I knew it had to be something over the top for them and these cookies definitely stepped up to the plate.

I think my cookie scoop was a little on the big side so these cookies were insanely big compared to Jenny’s or Amy’s.  It’s seriously like having 3 cookies at once since you sandwich the Oreo between two scoops of the chocolate chip cookie dough and then seal together to bake into one massive cookie.  So do me a favor and put aside all thoughts of the calorie count of this cookie and give it a try!  My friends loved them and you will too =)

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3  1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 10 oz bag chocolate chips
  • 1 bag Oreo cookies, double stuffed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined.  Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips just until 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 the bottom of the Oreo cookie.  Seal the edges together by pressing and cupping in your hand until the Oreo cookie is enclosed with dough.  Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake for 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking.  Let cool 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  Enjoy!

Daring Bakers: Panna Cotta and Florentine Cookies

The February 2011 Daring Baker’s challenge was hosted by Mallory from A Sofa in the Kitchen.  She chose to challenge everyone to make Panna Cotta from a Giada De Laurentis’ recipe and Nestle Florentine Cookies.  I was especially excited about making the panna cotta as I had heard of it so many times but never ventured out to make it myself.  I love to desserts (obviously) but when it comes to making them I usually play it safe with a cake of sorts.  This is why I am so happy to be a part of Daring Bakers as it challenges me to put fear aside and make things I probably would have never considered attempting.

Alright, on to this month’s challenge which I made for my Bible study group on Valentine’s day.  The panna cotta was ridiculously easy to make.  I topped it with some frozen mixed berries that I cooked down with some sugar.  The florentines were also easy to make it was just a bit time consuming.  I didn’t try either of the desserts but the ladies assured me they were both delicious.  Only one of them had ever heard of or tried panna cotta so it was fun to share something new with them.

Check out my fellow bakers here to see their creamy dreamy crunchy sweet desserts.  Thanks Mallory for such a fun challenge this month!
