oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies
A cookie-stuffed cookie.
Last spring, my friend Erin urgently posted this recipe on my Facebook wall.
After seeing her post, I had to make these cookies. I remember rushing to the store and baking these after school that very day.
recipe and brought them to school the next day. Everyone in my school had seen the post on Facebook, and was eager to snag one of these. As I walked into the building, lugging my backpack, trying to balance my thermos of coffee in one hand and my container full of cookies in the other, I could feel the eyes of 400 hungry high-schoolers on my back. Lets just say that I have never seen cookies disappear so fast. The moment I peeled the top off of my Tupperware container, they were gone.
Since that day, I have received countless requests for these cookies. These cookies have made appearances at everything from the Freestyle Rap Club bake sale to my Monday morning advisory meetings. To keep up with all of the orders -- I have made some changes to the recipe so that I can whip these up at a moments notice. (You never know when you're gonna need a dozen, ginormous, Oreo-stuffed cookies). I have learned that almost any type of chocolate chip cookie dough will work. I've used my own frozen chocolate chip cookie dough, and have even used store-bought dough in a pinch!
