Forget plain old chocolate chip cookies, these Cookies and Cream Cookies swap the chocolate chips for crumbled Oreos.
Yes, put cookies in your cookies! Mind blown!
Which is better chocolate chip cookies or Oreo cookies?
Why choose? Crush up the Oreos and use them instead of, or in addition to, the chocolate chips.
I know, I know, the idea is kind of like Pizza topped with Pizza. Pure silliness!
But, the more you think about it, the more you want to try them. And trust me, you want these!
One Trick to Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies
The only trick I added to making these was a 30 minute chill in the fridge before baking. According to this article on King Arthur's Flour's blog, chilling cookie dough for at least 30 minutes helps prevent it from spreading.
Yes, that means 30 minutes longer until you can eat them.
It is worth the wait.
I will be doing this with all of my cookies from now on. As long as my kid isn't standing in the kitchen doing a Veruca Salt imitation, "I want them NOOOOWWWW!"

I love the bits of oreo type cookies in here!
They were great, and by using them this way I made more cookies to give away.

Oh my gosh... As soon as I saw your picture, I knew what you were up to. Genius! Love the whole idea of Oreo's in the cookie! Perfect truck snack for my husband, so he thanks you for creating this!
Less potential mess than chocolate chips or even the oreos with the cream filling. My husband spends lots of time commuting and he avoids gooey chocolatey stuff in the car.
I love that you used cookies to make cookies! What a smart idea! I also love that you mashed up old cake and made cake balls. Is there anything you don't remake into something else? Thanks for being a part of the Fill The Cookie Jar group! I always look forward to seeing what you create in the kitchen!
I hate to see food go to waste! If I can come up with just one more dish to make from it I will try. Ha Ha!

A cookie within a cookie--sounds like a hit to me! Of course, I would scrape the cream filling off my sandwich cookies first. Even as a child, that was too much sugar for me. But other kids loved eating cookies with me because then they could have my scrapings! 😀
These look absolutely yummy !!!!! Good tip on chilling - my cookies always spread too much. Thanks for sharing. Visiting from Merry Monday.
