Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies-do I have your attention??? Those words sound just Heavenly, don't they?? I am not sure where I found this recipe, but it was in my pile of printed-out-goodness that I keep handy when I am in the mood to try something new and yummy. Today, we were in the mood for something that involved oreos, and this recipe totally fit the bill. These were easy to make and a great recipe to get your kiddos involved in the baking. Just have them put the oreos in the middle of the cookie dough. My son loved helping, and he especially loved sneaking a few stray oreos :). These cookies are best served straight out of the oven with an ice-cold glass of milk. Delish!!!

Have a blessed day, my friends, and remember that you are dearly loved by your Heavenly Father!!

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

•2 sticks butter, softened
•3/4 cup packed brown sugar
•1 cup white sugar
•2 large eggs
•1 tablespoon vanilla extract
•3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon salt
•1 teaspoon baking soda
•10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
•1 package Oreo cookies – I used mini oreos to make smaller cookies, but you could use regular or double-stuffed oreos to make super large cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined. If you do not have a stand mixer, use a large bowl and a hand mixer.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the wet mixture and combine thoroughly. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Chill the dough for 15 minutes to make it easier to work with and to keep the dough from spreading when baking.

Using a cookie scoop place one scoop of dough on top of an Oreo cookie. Place another single scoop on the bottom of the Oreo to create a cookie sandwich. Seal the edges together to completely close in the Oreo. (NOTE: I made smaller cookies with mini oreos-I just placed one small scoop of cookie dough on the parchment-paper lined cookie sheet; my son placed a mini oreo in the center of each cookie; and then I topped the cookie with another scoop of dough and sealed the edges with my fingers-this process worked great!)

Place the balls of cookie dough on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet and bake for 9-13 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack.
