If you keep up with my blog posts at all, you probably know that I'm a huge fan of Oreos. So when I saw these candy cane Oreos in Walmart, I had to have them.
I wasn't sure what I was going to use them for, but I knew something would come to me. Sure enough, I remembered a website my friend showed me months ago. It's called Serious Eats and my friend showed me this post about Cookie Stuffed Cookies.
Here's what you need:
Cookie dough and Oreos
You can make your own cookie dough if you want, but I made these for a Christmas party the week before final exams, so I didn't have time to make my own. My mom gave me some chocolate cookie dough with white chocolate chips that she bought from a friend at work and I bought some regular chocolate chip cookie dough at the store. If I did make my own, though, I would have used Nestle's recipe that's found on the back of their bags of chocolate chips. My mom and I always used that recipe when I was growing up.
They're pretty easy to make.
1. I pressed the dough out pretty flat with my hands into two circles.
2. Take one circle and fold it over one side of the Oreo.
3. Do the same to the other side.
4. Press the two circles together so there isn't really a seam.
Pretty simple. And delicious!
Keep in mind that the dough will spread out, so you don't want to use too much.
The Oreos will probably look like lumps after the chocolate chip cookie dough expands in the oven. I've seen some people use round cookie cutters to cut out the part with the Oreo, but I didn't have any so I just used a knife.
I think they looked pretty close to regular chocolate chips cookies because people seemed surprised when there was an Oreo inside. I used some regular Oreos with red cream along with the candy cane Oreos, but the candy cane ones were better by a looottt.
There are tons of possibilities when it comes to cookie-stuffed-cookies, and hopefully I'll be experimenting more with those soon!
