Cookies...boy do I love 'em.
You know what I love more, well uh, cookies in cookies of course.
Throw in some extra chocolate, well then I am one pretty happy girl.
I am not generally an Oreo eater. I don't really know why. I mean they are quite lovely to eat.
You can eat them as is. You can twist them apart and eat the filling and discard the wafers. You can let them skinny dip in a cold glass of milk and eat them a little milk soaked.
As I am typing this I really am wondering why I don't eat this delightful little cookie more often.
Probably because I want to be able to wear my jeans.
Speaking of jeans...lets not talk about them while we go over the fabulous details about these cookies!
These cookies are chocolaty. They are chewy. They have pockets of Oreo cookies. Yay! And we can't leave out the yummy white chocolate chips, they might get their feelings hurt.
All said and done, I was quite fond of these cookies...oh and the dough. I am pretty sure I have mentioned my love affair for cookie dough before.
So if you have some Oreos laying around ,believe me you will want to make these cookies.
Chocolate Oreo White Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
6 Oreos roughly chopped
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
In the bowl of a mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet indgredients and mix until well combined. Stir in the Oreo pieces and the chips by hand.
Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop about two tablespoons of dough at a time onto a cookie sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes. Make sure not to over bake. You want them chewy not crunchy.
Now pour yourself a glass of milk and eat up.
