INCEPTION COOKIES *otherwise known as oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies*
I must start out by saying these cookies didn't turn out for me at all and could have been door stops. Maybe it was me, the recipe, too long in the oven but the idea was much better than the reality. Maybe hinting at the name INCEPTION. *palm to forehead*
This cookie dough recipe never turned golden brown causing me to think they weren't getting done in the oven. Their size was also daunting. My main mistake was keeping them in a couple minutes over the 13. I probably wouldn't even bake them the 13 minutes next time. Just be weary that these cookies don't darken at ALL in color.
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 24 gigantic cookies
Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 13 minutes
• 1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
• 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 2 large eggs
• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
• 3 1/2 cups flour
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
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, 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.
