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?

      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˜€

    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!

    • spabettie says

      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!

    • spabettie says

      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!!

    • spabettie says

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

    • spabettie says

      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˜€

    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…

    • spabettie says

      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. :)

    • spabettie says

      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 :)

    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!

    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.

    • spabettie says

      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!

    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 :)

    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.

    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!

  8. Pilar says

    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!

  9. Jane says

    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!

    • spabettie says

      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˜‰

  10. Grandma Did This Too!! says

    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˜‰
