oreo stuffed cookies

Today I got to do something I love to do. Bake. Blog. Give.

One of my favorite things about blogging is the generosity of the community. I have participated in many a blog bake sale and fundraising event, both in donating items and in bidding.Β All but one have been a great experience, and I still feel good donating money to that important cause.

Recently Manda from I Am Baker posted a Call To Bakers. She had wanted to do a giveaway for five lucky recipients – people in need of a pick me up. She had 165 responses, and as she read them, could not turn anyone down. The Call To Bakers was for others to take on a nominee for her, after she fulfilled her original commitment of five people. I think it was a matter of hours before each nominee had a baker.

I’m tearing up as I type that – such an amazing and powerful community!

I have a joyous heart being able to do this, and make a family smile. I also get to experiment with some things I may normally not make – like Oreo Stuffed Cookies!

oreo stuffed cookies

I used the Golden Oreo inside my chocolate chunk cookies. Prepare the cookie dough, flatten a spoonful in your hand, place an oreo on it and form it around the oreo. Take another spoonful and form it around the other side, so the entire oreo is covered by a layer of cookie dough.

chocolate chunk cookies

3/4 cup ap flour (gluten free)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 bar dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup butter
1 cup agave
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 eggs

Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and chocolate pieces. Cream together butter, agave, vanilla and eggs; combine with dry ingredients.

Bake @ 375 for 10-12 minutes.*

*This time is for chocolate cookies only; for oreo stuffed, 15 minutes.

crazy tasty wrapped in decadence.

I cut one in half for photos. Then I ate half of it. πŸ˜€ I’m saving the other half for Jason, and the rest are on their way to a new home!

what’s your flavor – chocolate or vanilla?

These look divine and to be honest I love both vanilla and chocolate together.It just can’t be beat :)


2 Holly @ The Runny Egg March 29, 2011 at 4:30 am

Kristina these look so good! Oreos are one of my favorite cookies :)

I’m definitely more of a vanilla person!


3 Kristina March 29, 2011 at 5:20 am

Ahhhh the vanilla oreos are my fav too!!!!!! I haven’t had one in forever-Mmm


4 Heather (Where's the Beach) March 29, 2011 at 5:42 am

What a decadent treat. I’m definitely vanilla.


5 rebecca lustig March 29, 2011 at 6:53 am

one of the SWEETEST and most creative of all treats– every time i see this recipe I chuckle and think, ‘what will they think of next!?’ ha


6 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:43 pm

I know – crazy, right? πŸ˜‰ hey, girl, I need an invite to read your blog… how do I snag a hook up for one of those? πŸ˜€


7 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) March 29, 2011 at 7:13 am

I saw the call and I responded, but I guess she got plenty of volunteers. The story was really so moving. The cookies will definitely make someone happy! I’m a vanilla girl all the way!


8 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:42 pm

I know, it was really spectacular how quickly all were filled! such amazingness out there!!


9 Carbzilla March 29, 2011 at 7:25 am

What a great project. I do think the Golden Oreo is a thing of beauty even though I can’t remember the last time I ate one of either color. I’m a bit intrigued by those half ‘n half ones. Best of both worlds!


10 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:41 pm

yes!! I saw those – thought about getting them – maybe for a chocolate chip or a peanut butter cookie, where you’d be able to see both sides… Mmm, YUM!


11 Erin @ A Girl & Her Mutt March 29, 2011 at 7:40 am

Ack! These look so yummy. I am definitely more of a chocolate person.

You know what I like about you…you can make anything look like I want to induldge in it all day! Seriously. These photos are killer!


12 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:40 pm

thank you Erin!! I try to make most things we eat into something great to look at too! :) these? they just do that on their own!!


13 Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty March 29, 2011 at 7:55 am

Oh gosh… I almost avoided this post, because it sounded way to good!! haha

and I was right… *drool*

I can’t choose, vanilla or chocolate, I want them BOTH! haha :)


14 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:39 pm

so SO good… thank you for not avoiding :)


15 Andrea @ CanYouStayForDinner.com March 29, 2011 at 8:55 am

I just died. Really. Dead. The photo where there’s a leeetle bit of chocolate oozing from the cookie made my knees go weak. I’m a chocolate and vanilla combo kinda gal :)


16 Lynn March 29, 2011 at 7:23 pm

Its like that cookie had a chocolate tail!! :)


17 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Mmm hmm… πŸ˜€


18 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:28 pm

haa… based on your earlier tweet, are you going to have to make these for Daniel…? :)


19 Susan (Oliepants) March 29, 2011 at 9:15 am

I wanted to do this too!! This looks delicious!


20 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:26 pm

DOOOO IIIIIT !! :) they’re SO incredibly good. especially warm… when you make them? eat one fresh… then another πŸ˜‰


21 Nichole March 29, 2011 at 9:54 am

Milk me.


22 Nichole March 29, 2011 at 9:55 am

And I meant as in, give me a glass of milk, haa, not like Meet the Focker”Can you milk me, Greg.”


23 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:02 am

baaa HAAA … oh, little gepetto cat.


24 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:02 am



25 Alyssa @ Life of bLyss March 29, 2011 at 12:04 pm


and that is so awesome. I wish I had known about the call to bakers. as someone in total need of a pick-me-up, I totally would have partaken in BOTH sides of that!


26 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:24 pm

aw… I just today sent this and three other “care packages” to friends, but if you are in need of a pick me up and you would have done this? perhaps YOU AND I could do a baking exchange soon!! I need a couple – few weeks to get back in gear after spending major $$ on shipping today… but let me know if you’re up for it! πŸ˜€


27 (what runs) Lori March 29, 2011 at 12:21 pm

I love that picture of the melty chocolate chip as it looks like it’s sticking it’s tongue out at us. πŸ˜‰

What an amazing organization to help others! This is exactly why I (and you and all of us) are so blessed to be a part of this blogging community. Everyone is inspiring and motivating and out to help the world!

How do you come up with these measurements for the cookies? Intrigued…


28 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:22 pm

I know – I feel such warm fuzzies from this community – excited every day to be a part of it!!

WAY before blogging, I was developing recipes for a cookbook. I made (several misses before a bit) a basic quick bread recipe. from that, I changed ingredients and measurements for brownies, for cookies… so most of my baking recipes are hybrids of others I wrote years ago… a template of sorts. this specific recipe was partly from another one of mine, and partly from an OLD recipe card for those chocolate crackle cookies – written in my mom’s handwriting from when I was a kid. :)


29 (what runs) Lori March 30, 2011 at 8:57 am

Oh my! Thank you for sharing this. That’s awesome. “Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something [cookies]” definitely applies here. :)


30 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) March 29, 2011 at 2:54 pm

This looks amazing! I think I just picked a really good time to come across your blog :)


31 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 10:03 pm

ha! good timing, Kate!! :) and thanks, they were amazing! I ate one before sending the rest away… I may have to make more to KEEP :)


32 Dorry March 29, 2011 at 2:59 pm

You, my friend, are generous with a big heart, and that is one of the many reasons I love you! Those cookies are a creative masterpiece – an original original, if you will. The recipients will be so thankful!


33 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 9:59 pm

thank you, Dorry! I hope they like them, I sure felt good making them! :)


34 Dorry March 29, 2011 at 3:01 pm

p.s. I used to always say vanilla growing up – didn’t like chocolate at all, but now I love my doses of dark chocolate in many forms. I also truly love vanilla – like the extract – in baking, bars, oats, etc. Mmmm.


35 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 9:59 pm

I love vanilla too… Mmm, I always add a lot to baking :)


36 Tiffany @ Simply Shaka March 29, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Your goodies never cease to amaze me! Team chocolate all the way :)


37 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 9:45 pm

thanks, Tiffany! :) go team chocolate!


38 S @ extremebalance.net/blog March 29, 2011 at 6:56 pm

Kristina: you’re the best.

End message.


39 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 9:44 pm

aw, thanks S… :)


40 Aimee March 29, 2011 at 7:08 pm

How lucky the person who gets to eat these!! Yummy!


41 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 9:43 pm

I hope they like them!! :)


42 Amy B @ Second City Randomness March 29, 2011 at 7:27 pm

I have been wanting to make these for a while now! Or at least a version of them… :) They look monster big- which is totally my style.


43 spabettie March 29, 2011 at 9:41 pm

yep – it makes a pretty big cookie! I tried to make the dough covering kinda thin and even, but around an oreo, still big! :) and tasty!


44 Jenny Flake March 30, 2011 at 6:40 am

Hi there,
I love seeing my Oreo Stuffed Cookies all over the web, but am disappointed when fellow bloggers take the idea as their own. I was pointed to your site from a friend that saw your post. All I ask is that you give credit with my link. As a cookbook author I would have expected this from you :) I know you made changes but the idea started on my site back in January: http://su.pr/1IQ0O1

Thanks :)


45 spabettie March 30, 2011 at 7:27 am

honest mistake! while I have seen an oreo stuffed in a chocolate chip cookie all over the web, I SINCERELY did not see the idea on your site. I would never NOT give credit due – and I did not ‘make changes’ in order to ‘take the idea as my own’ – apologies.


46 Cecilia May 23, 2011 at 7:27 pm

I’m a bit late at this. But Jenny, a simple Google search will let you see that oreo stuffed cookie is NOT a recipe that YOU come up with, bloggers posted the recipe + idea up on the internet back in 2010. So why don’t I see you giving credit to any of those bloggers? Rude.



47 Lexi March 30, 2011 at 3:55 pm

I’d definitely choose the chocolate. You can never go wrong with the original oreo!


48 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 12:35 am

yep – the original will always be the best…


49 assistantdoc March 30, 2011 at 9:51 pm

These cookies look devine! Mmmm. Lucky is the person who received these! Oh and to the person who wants to take credit for “thinking” up this idea as her own….I have seen this idea in multiple forms for years. You were not by any means the pioneer in this. There is nothing new under the Sun. In fact it was on the web just this past week in yet another form. Kris, Take whatever ideas you have and don’t be afraid to run with them and take all of the credit. You rock. Duh! Winning.


50 Christin@purplebirdblog April 3, 2011 at 6:47 am

Whoa…. those look delicious! Makes me want to make a chocolate cookie with a pretzel in the middle or something else salty! :)


51 spabettie April 3, 2011 at 9:25 am

something kinda like the pb cracker brownies I made… pb pretzel in a chocolate cookie… YUM! …I love salty + sweet…


52 Heather @ kissmybroccoli April 5, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Oh my…*drool*

My mouth INSTANTLY started watering when I saw that halved cookie! Yum! Golden Oreos are the best…no incriminating evidence on your teeth! πŸ˜‰


53 spabettie April 5, 2011 at 5:40 pm

ha – never thought about it that way, but YES… they’re so good!


54 Tricia April 15, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Oooh, cookies!
Need I say more?

Love, love these!


55 spabettie April 18, 2011 at 4:22 pm

hi Tricia!! thank you πŸ˜€ they are SO GOOD !


56 hihorosie May 14, 2011 at 8:58 pm

um hello! I’m salivating! How did I miss this post – it didn’t come thru on email. :( Well, I’m here now, that’s all that matters. Looks so delish!


57 Pilar November 6, 2011 at 1:26 am

my grandmother made the same thing when I was little; my sisters and I were always delighted to see what was hiding inside her cookies! thank you for reminding me of an old memory (this was 40+ years ago now…) bless!


58 Jane November 20, 2011 at 6:25 am

such a memory trip! my mom made these when I was little, my brother and I were always excited to see what she’d hide in the middles of cookies. oreos were my favorite. I may have to make these for my grand daughters this week, they are coming for Thanksgiving!


59 Hannah K November 21, 2011 at 8:24 am

oreo’s are vegan!! get out! I love this idea, and the cookies you wrapped around them sound awesome!


60 spabettie November 23, 2011 at 10:22 pm

yeah, Hannah! I believe they are! (I was vegetarian when I cooked these, but… YES, I have heard Oreos ARE vegan!) πŸ˜€ the cookie recipe “around them” is one of my FIRST… from many years ago in college… πŸ˜‰


61 January November 25, 2011 at 5:21 am

made the cookie without the oreo. this is a great recipe!


62 Grandma Did This Too!! February 5, 2012 at 10:47 am

yep, this is an age old trick to surprise and delight the children! I am 47 and recall this fondly, my grandmom and aunt making these hidden gems for us! cheers πŸ˜‰


63 spabettie February 6, 2012 at 3:19 pm

cheers to you – great memory!


64 Karen February 28, 2012 at 5:49 am
