I realize I’m not reinventing the wheel here with everyone stuffing cookies and brownies and candy inside cookies and brownies and candy, but who can resist really. It is a cookie stuffed with a cookie!!! How can you go wrong? I also love everyone’s expressions when they pick up a seemingly innocent chocolate chip cookie and bite into it to find ANOTHER cookie! Every adult turns into a little kid and starts using sayings like, “dude, this rocks”.
My husband is a cookie connoisseur/monster. He can tell you where it is worth buying a cookie and where it is not anywhere in town. Everywhere we go he buys a chocolate chip cookie. It is insane. He is constantly in trouble for eating a dozen cookies straight without taking into consideration that someone else might want ONE cookie. I can’t tell you how many times he has accidentally eaten my cookie as well as his because he didn’t remember eating the first one. It is a problem and I’m looking for a good counselor to discuss the matter with….
Over the weekend Natalie brought me a cake to surprise me with while I was not home. She brought Michael a cookie to eat to keep him from cutting into the cake before I got a chance to see it. He has absolutely no will power!!
Needless to say these suckers were a total hit at my house.
My hubby wasn’t home while I was baking all of these crazy cookies so I actually got to take photos of them all without fighting him off. He lays claim to all of the “ugly” cookies that I don’t deem pretty enough to photograph. Once the photo session is over he lays claim to all the other cookies.
This is the easiest recipe ever. Go buy a box cookie mix and your favorite cookie or candy to stuff it with.
Preheat your oven and make the cookie dough according to the package directions.
Take about 2 tbs of dough and flatten it out on your pan. Place the Oreo (or whatever stuffer you choose) on the dough and top with another 1 tbs of cookie dough. Mush the cookie dough all around the “Oreo” until you can’t see the Oreo anymore. If you have too much dough take some off. Don’t have enough? Add some more! It is up to you how big you want your cookie. Just make sure the stuffer is fully covered.
Bake according to the packaged directions. (350 for about 13 minutes was perfect for me.)
Cool the cookies on a cooling rack and enjoy!
Of course you can use homemade cookie dough but I made all of these on a Wednesday night after running errands so 3 different cookies from scratch was so not going to happen!
