Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Well for the most part I would consider myself a baker more than a cook due to the fact I am great at following directions and not good and throwing a bunch of stuff together and making it taste good. Don't get me wrong I can cook also but prefer baking better most of the time. Unfortunately, baking doesn't seem to be as healthy as cooking can be but whatever life is short enjoy. I believe you can have anything you want as long as it is in moderation just like these cookies I found to bake. I would actually say these are 3 cookies in one!! I found a new blog with great recipes and this is where I found my oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies from which also had some other amazing stuffed cookies recipes. Who ever thought of stuffing an oreo inside a chocolate chip cookie??  I wonder if you crushed them up and mixed them in with the batter if that would work?? Next time! Well here is goes.....

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yields: About 2 dozen large cookies

2 sticks butter softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt 
10oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag of double stuffed oreos

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.   In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined.  Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2.  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 Oreo Cookie is enclosed with dough.  Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking.  Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. 
Batter Ready time to assemble

3 cookies in 1? It works best to take your palms and smoosh them together but not to tight you might break the oreo

All ready for the toasty 350 Oven

Almost ready to melt in your mouth
