I'd love to take credit for this act of genius, but I actually found the recipe online - in a Bon Appetit article - and they found it from a blog called "The Picky Plate". Regardless of who invented the idea of taking an oreo cookie and wrapping it with a chocolate chip cookie, the result is no less than (a phrase coined by Terry Tocantins) "Cookie Porn". Proceed with caution. Eating just one proves virtually impossible.
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 pkg Oreo cookies (the recipe recommends double-stuff; I used regular and they came out great)
Recipe makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer untl well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo cookie. Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Orea cookie is enclosed in dough.
Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
