Double stuffed, indeed!

Some people simply take desserts more seriously than others. To some, desserts are merely an after-thought. Something you can do without. 

I've never understood such people. 

To me dessert is the reason I eat my meal. To be fair, I do generally enjoy my meal, but it is a means to an end. And the end generally involves chocolate. 

You may have noticed, but both Oreos and chocolate chip cookies hold a special place in my heart. A dear, dear place. I am fairly certain I sustained my duo in utero with my constant companions: Oreos and milk. And since birth I have used my duo's existence to bake my homemade chocolate chip cookies as often as possible. And believe me, it is possible for me to bake them quite often. 

Don't judge and leave vicious comments calling me a bad mom and noting how my children are at increased risk of obesity and other horrid ailments. We also all eat plenty of fresh spinach. Balance, folks. I promise: I have never given them cookies for dinner. 

Cookies before dinner, yes, but not cookies for dinner. 

But enough about me, take a look at this ooey gooey goodness. 

Now run, do not walk, to the store to purchase the ingredients {that is, if you don't already have them on hand as I do}. Your children will immediately adore you and forever remember you as the sweet mom who was always willing to put her own figure at risk to ensure you could sample such goodness! 

We are making memories here. 

And I'm fairly certain this will be memorable. 

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag Oreo Cookies

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.

Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies.
