A few bloggers have been passing around a recipe for chocolate chip cookies that are baked around Oreos. I've been waiting to give them a try because I knew that if they stayed in the house...with me...alone...well, I wouldn't be able to fit through any of our doorways. Since we were going to Toronto and visiting lots of peeps, I thought I'd give them a try.
I wasn't disappointed.
|This is everything you'll need. If you want to take it up a notch, get some vanilla beans and put them in a sealed container overnight with the sugar. Can't take credit for the idea but I REAP the REWARDS.|
|Mix everything together until JUST combined.|
|Take a heaping tablespoon and form it into a pressed ball. Put one underneath the Oreo and one above.|
|Then squish the seams together, completely covering the Oreo.|
|The recipe says you get 2 dozen. I got just shy of that.|
|As you can see, some of the cookies had slightly too much batter. Marc said they looked like fried eggs...with an oreo centre, of course. I got better with the second batch.|
|BAM! They're friggin' INSANE! It's like THREE cookies at once!|
VERDICT: They are amazing and best served with a glass of cold milk. Super easy and would make a VERY appropriate gift for someone, considering their intensity on the cookie-scale is about a 10.5.
