Chocolate Chip Oreo Stuffed Cookies

On February 28 my new brother-in-law Mike, will be turning a whopping 24! What an old fart huh? This last summer he came up to Alaska with my family to enjoy some fishing, camping, and see this beautiful place that I call home. We were grocery shopping one day to get our snacks for our week long camping adventure! He was absolutely adamant on getting double stuffed Oreos for the trip. At that moment I could see his burning love for those succulent cookies glistening in his eyes... not really but I could tell that he really liked them.
So recently I was searching the web for different and unusual recipes involving Oreo cookies, and I came across a phenomenal blog! Picky-Palate is a mom of two boys that are picky eaters! She makes up all her own recipes and they all are truly FANTASTIC! She has an awesome collection of cookie recipes and this one was by far my favorite! Who wouldn't like cookies the size of planets right?


2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup dark or light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup butter softened ( 2 sticks)
2 large eggs
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chip cookies
1 sleeve Oreo cookies

Pre heat oven to 350. In a medium bowl combine flour, soda, salt, brown sugar, white sugar. Mix well

Add butter until mixture comes to a grainy paste. Then add eggs and vanilla and mix until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl then add chocolate chips. Mix well

Take two heaping tablespoons and place them with the Oreo cookie in the middle

Mold the dough around the cookie creating a ball (should be about the size of your palm, I know its huge, the size of your head!)

Drop onto a cookie sheet about 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake about 9-12 minutes until golden brown and soft. Transfer from cookie sheet to a cooling rack and let cool for a few minutes, then serve warm and enjoy
