Oh, my word people…I came across the best cookie recipe. This is a much try recipe that you are sure to love. I’m warning you the cookies are rich but totally to die for.
A while back Kalissa and I went to a craft/vendor Fall show at the fairgrounds in West Union, Iowa. Kalissa insisted that we be there right away. She insisted that the first vendor we went to was the cookie lady.
She was telling me that other times she’s gone the cookie lady sells out and these cookies are to die for. I had no idea so just went along with her.
We got to the booth and there was already a line of people. Everyone wanted these cookies. The cookies are stuffed cookies. I still didn’t really understand but bought two even though they were $4 each. WHAT?? In what world do I spend $4 on a cookie? It certainly wasn’t my usual but wow. There was a line of people waiting to do just that…and trust me, they weren’t just buying one cookie.
I tried my cookie and admittedly, they were a BIG treat but the cheapskate in my still couldn’t fathom buying cookies for $4 each.
That all happened in September.
Fast forward to just a bit ago. A Facebook friend shared a recipe for an Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie. I saw the picture and it looked much like the cookies Kalissa was so excited about. So I tried the recipe. You can find the recipe HERE.
***the recipe calls for 2 bags of chocolate chips. That has to be a misprint. I used 1/2 of a bag and that was almost too much***
The dough is a chocolate chip cookie dough.
To make the cookies…you take a scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough, flatten it out, place the oreo on top…then,
put another scoop of dough on top and back them. I did a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.
They come out looking like this…
I cut one in half so you could see the YUMMY goodness.
The cookies got a top 10 rating from everyone who tried them. I could only get the batch to make 24 cookies so it’s not a big batch, but it’s a YUMMY batch. Plus, the cookies are large and rich so one cookie is enough to satisfy.
Kalissa asked how much I thought it was to make a batch, honestly…only about $5 for the whole batch if you take in that you only use part of a bag of chocolate chips and part of a container of Oreos. Kalissa was so surprised I made them and VERY impressed with me.
I love cookie-making. Since my husband passed away I make a lot more cookies than desserts, cakes, and bars. Cookies are easier to freeze or to send home with someone. Other things don’t get finished so cookies it is. I’m off to check out the website where the cookie recipe came from. It has cookie recipes exclusively. I’m hoping to find another recipe to try!!
