WARNING! This Could Happen To You!


My pants are tight.
Need to buy me a new pair (Wal-Mart here I come).
And do my friends bring me carrot sticks or offer to run with me? Oh no. Instead, they call my attention to cookie recipes.
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m not one to place blame or name drop, since many of my friends do this. But y’all are killing me. You know I’m weak when it comes to sugary confections.
My advice to you – make these. But make them right before you’re meeting a friend, or sibling, or an entire preschool class. So you can pawn them off on other victims recipients. Because once that happens to you, I cannot be held responsible.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 c. (2 sticks) softened butter
¾ c. packed light brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
3 ½ c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with a mixer until well combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In medium bowl mix the flour, salt, and baking soda.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
With a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, form balls with the dough.
Place one ball on top of an Oreo cookie and another ball on the bottom. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo cookie is fully enclosed with dough.
Place onto parchment or silpat lined baking sheets and bake cookies for approximately 13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
