We rarely buy packaged cookies, but when it comes to Oreos, we just can’t help ourselves. Would it be too over-the-top to include our favorite store-bought cookie in a chocolate chip cookie, we wondered? We had to try. We began by simply chopping up Oreos and folding them into cookie dough, but were less than impressed with the results. Then we came up with the idea of deconstructing the Oreos, using their filling in place of some of the butter and sugar, and the chocolate wafers in place of some of the flour. We found that Double Stuf Oreos gave us the right ratio of filling and cookie. We then added even more Oreos into the finished dough and, of course, some chocolate chips, just to gild the lily.
One note: We highly recommend you use Oreo brand cookies — we tried other chocolate sandwich cookies and didn’t like how any of the results tasted.
