Cookies and Cream Cookies

Late August is an awkward time in the baking blogosphere – it’s a little too late for refreshing summery treats and definitely too depressing to start baking with pumpkin and apples quite yet. So today we’re going for what I consider a delicious, timeless classic – Cookies and Creams Cookies. Timeless because they’re essentially season-less, classic in that apparently Oreo’s are America’s favorite cookie (I’m not arguing there), and delicious because it’s freakin’ Oreo’s mixed into a chocolate chip cookie base, what more can I say?!

Sometimes there’s just no time for elaborate layer cakes or fancy jello shots. Sometimes I just want to throw together some ingredients, bake them for a few minutes, and have delicious treats with minimal effort. I love cookies and cream anything, probably because of my love affair with Oreo’s, so when I saw this idea to bake broken up Oreo’s into chocolate chip cookies, I was all over it. I needed something to bring to a housewarming party and I knew this would definitely be a crowd-pleaser. I was right – they went quickly and received rave reviews. It was hard for me not to keep repeating – “But they were so easy to make!” It’s great to have a few recipes on hand that you can whip up with ingredients you probably already have in minimal time. The big plus for these is the dough doesn’t need to spend a night chilling in the fridge like many cookie recipes. So really, what I’m trying to say here is there’s no reason you shouldn’t turn off your computer right now and start baking these immediately…

Cookies 'n Cream Cookies

Recipe adapted from Lovin in the Oven

Yield: 30 cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
6 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
12 Oreo’s, broken up into small pieces

Directions:

Preheat the over to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).

Add egg and vanilla and beat until well mixed.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined.

Gently fold in Oreo pieces.

With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 1-2″ apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes*, until the edges JUST start to brown. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

*I baked my cookies a minute or two longer than I should of (more on the 10 min side of the range), so if you watch yours more carefully than I did, they should be even more “cookies and cream” colored and less golden brown!

    Very true about it being awkward trying to figure out what to bake at this time of year. I made a lemon/raspberry bread earlier tonight, and realized that it is probably the last summery thing I’ll make this year.

    As a fellow cookies and cream lover, these look fantastic! I like the idea of crushed up cookies in a cookie. Peanut butter cookies with smashed Nutter Butters maybe? Yumm.

    I made stone fruit hand pies last night with the last of the peaches and plums at the grocery stocked my local farms. I am sad that summer fruit season is over, but these cookies look like they can make things feel better!

    These look better than regular chocolate chip cookies to me. I was planning on detoxing after my recent vacation but I might need to make these as my ‘last meal’ kinda thing, they look that good!

    I like this idea better than batter wrapped around a cookie! For some reason when there are two competing textures like that my teeth argue about it. But THIS is perfect! A bit of this, a bit of that.

    These were delicious. I made them for our tailgate at the football game and they were a huge hit. They are sweet, yet salty which made a lovely combination of flavors.

    These are in the oven currently, and the house smells absolutely divine.

    • Erica — May 14th, 2012 @ 12:21 pm

      Light brown sugar and all purpose flour, I’ll make those changes in the recipe above. Good luck, enjoy the cookies!

    I’ve never heard of cookie dough needing to chill over night? I’m sorry, you’ve gotten me extremely confused on this one!

    • Erica — November 6th, 2012 @ 9:30 pm

      Most traditional cookie recipes call for chilling the dough for at least a few hours because it help prevent too much spreading due to the warmed butter. Not all, but if you pay attention closely to recipes, you’ll see that a lot do call for that!

    These look awesome! Quick question – are these chewy cookies? Will they stay soft for days?

  36. #

    Erica — November 19, 2012 @ 1:37 am

    They’re definitely soft and slightly chewy – they’ll only be crunchy if you overbake them. And kept in an airtight container, I definitely think they’ll stay soft for a few days. You can even throw in a slice of bread into the container and I’ve heard that will also help keep the cookies even fresher. Good luck!

    I made these for teacher gifts for Christmas for our Kindergarten teacher. My 5 year old “sneakily” asked what kind of cookies she liked and she said Oreo so this was perfect to wrap up in a tea towel for her Christmas gift. I hope she likes them!

    This recipe is amazing!! I rolled the balls into 1inch (2.5-3cm) balls and didnt flatten them, cooked for 8 minutes on 335-340F (170ishC). They came out as little blobs and were perfect! soft and yummy! They are a part of a platter of biscuits for Xmas day, so baking them to be small fits right in :) Thankyou for sharing your recipe
    – from australia!

    Cassie — December 23, 2013 @ 10:54 am

    Oh! I also stuck the tray of rolled up balls in the freezer for 5 minutes as they were very soft from being rolled in the hands, and had the bowl in the fridge overnight.
