Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. {You're Welcome.}

Photo and Recipe from Very Culinary

I recently saw these cookies on Pinterest and was instantly hungry. Then I showed my husband, DJ. He got twinkly stars in his eyes and suggested we get the ingredients to make these for a Friday night treat. Since I'm not the type to turn down a good treat -- I volunteered to run to the store.

Whoever thought of these cookies was BRILLIANT. A pure genius. Whoever you are, thank you.

Recipe from Very Culinary
Makes 24 gigantic cookies

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.
