Chocolate Chip or Oreo? Both!

A simple post today...to satisfy a simple need. The need for a cookie. I first saw this cookie over at ReTorte (Wandering Coyote originally saw them at Picky Palate)...then at My Tasty Treasures...and finally I decided it was time to make it (and I'm betting many others have tried this cookie by now, too)! I love this cookie because it has all the warm, fresh-baked goodness of a homemade chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven plus the added bonus of a childhood favorite Oreo! What's not to love? It's also quick...I did it all by hand, no mixer needed...I was feeling that lazy (no unnecessary dishes, please).
Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies
adapted from Picky Palate
yield: ~4 dozen

8 oz. (2 sticks) butter, at room temp.
¾ c. granulated sugar
¾ c. packed brown sugar
2 large eggs, at room temp.
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2½ c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. fine sea salt
16 Oreos, broken into pieces
1 c. chocolate chips (any variety you like)

Cream your sugars and butter together.  Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and mix. Add dry ingredients to your wet ingredients.  Mix until well combined.  Fold in broken Oreos and chocolate chips.  Refrigerate an hour or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350° F.   Drop by ~1 Tbs. scoops onto lined cookie sheet. Bake 8-11 minutes...they should still be soft.  Let cool on sheet pan for 3 minutes, then transfer to a rack to finish cooling


I can see why this recipe gets around...it's so provocative...it has such inner beauty. Okay, it's your turn.
