The other day on Pinterest I found a cookie recipe. It looked aaaawesome. But… there was an obvious shortcut to be made. Let’s look at my results first. Here’s a cookie. But not just any cookie. It’s sort of thick in the middle, right?
That’s ’cause there’s an OREO in there.
I can’t even describe the yumminess in writing. I can only tell you that they were gone almost immediately. My 2yo was particularly impressed. The original post gives you a whole lot of lovely fresh ingredients to combine, but, come on– it’s an Oreo in the middle. There’s already a whole pile of additives in there. So why not do it this way? (Although if any of my friends wants to volunteer to make it from scratch, I’d be happy to taste test it for you.) I’d suggest letting the dough soften at room temp for a bit before you attach a ball of dough to each side of the Oreo and sort of squish it together around the edges. And if you want a nice, clean cross-section you should probably let it cool before slicing. I didn’t. I wanted to eat it.
