Whoever came up with the idea of putting a cookie inside a cookie deserves a medal. I have done the Oreo inside a chocolate chip cookie thing before but this Oreo cookie creation is a whole other ball game. I could have eaten a whole batch of these they were so delicious and they would be even more perfect with some vanilla ice cream!
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick (8 tablespoons, 4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions:1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
2. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on medium speed until light in color and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined. On low speed gradually add flour mixture, beating until combined. With a rubber spatula fold in the Oreo pieces.
4. Drop 1 1/2-tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the edges just begin to brown. Place baking sheets on wire racks and let cool for 5 minutes before removing cookies to racks to cool completely.
Yield: about 20 cookies
