Lookie at my Cookies: Oreo Cookie Cookies


Has anyone seen the new “Next Iron Chef” promos on Food Network? They just came on and let me say Alton Brown is so fetch. That’s the only word I can think to accurately describe him, fetch. If you haven’t seen Mean Girls then here’s your def courtesy of Urban Dictionary: “Variation and shortening of the word ‘fetching’. Used to describe something cool and trendy. General usage by females, teeny-boppers. You can almost hear it replied with “Like, totally!” Coined by the movie Mean Girls“. Alton is like so totally fetch and so are these new promos. Good job FN. I gotta say I love Alton, but I am not into this southern character that is in the episode of “Good Eats” that’s on right now. Has anyone seen the gumbo episode? This guy is rather confrontational and loud…not liking his style. Hm. I’m sure Alton’s gumbo will be great with or without annoying Mr. Bayou stereotype. (I just called Ariel to read her my blog post and she started laughing when I read this part because she said she watched 2 minutes of Good Eats when weirdo happened to be on and thought ‘Whitney will be so annoyed with this’ and sure enough, I was!)

Yeahhhhh all of that has absolutely nothing to do with what this post is about but I felt the need to express my love for Alton and the Food Network. In other news, Ariel’s sister, Jodi, and I spent all today moving. Moving out of one room, into a U-Haul, out of the U-Haul (in the rain), and into a new room. After seeing our room I had to repeat Ariel’s saying “positive mental attitude” to myself about twenty times before I started to get rid of my badditude about our new living quarters. Good news: room is big, bad news: I could be baking and watching Liz or Ariel nap in their bed at the same time–because the big room is the only room. Well, at least our sheets and everything we own will smell like freshly baked cookies. That may be good or bad, I haven’t decided yet. So Jodi (an angel) helped get all of the stuff Ariel and I have accumulated up to our new room and then I set out to unpack. I swear every time I pack/unpack/repack I vow to start living a minimalist lifestyle. This move was no exception. It’s actually ridiculous how much crapola I have. For example, a cake carrier. Really? I’m twenty years old! I don’t even have a permanent residence, but I have a cake carrier, not to mention a full kitchen set! What are people gonna give me when I get married?! One day maybe I will actually stick to my vow of a minimalist lifestyle, maybe. Probably not. After a hard day of unpacking I needed to break in our new kitchen, Oreo Cookie Cookies did the trick. Oh Oh Oh-reo did they.

Dang these cookies were good y’all. Oh my gaaaah they were so good. It’s a good thing too because in our new neighborhood (lovely Chinatown) it’s a trek to the grocery, so it better be worth it. Our new room now smells wonderful, and I am full and happy. Positive Mental Attitude achieved. I don’t know what it is about the kitchen but after I used it I felt more at home in our room and the new digs are growing on me. As is my tummy since I’ve eaten Oreo Cookie Cookies batter+4 baked cookies in the last hour. I normally restrict myself to one or two cookies to sample what I bake, but not with these. I couldn’t! Too good. Whitney the cookie monster took over. It goes without saying that if you don’t like Oreos you probably won’t like these. But if you don’t like Oreos the change your taste buds or something, they’re like the best combo of processed sugar and chemicals on the market. I was so pleased with how these came out! They were also really easy to make, the batter came together in minutes, and no creaming butter and sugar required–they use melted butter. I knew these would be awesome while I was licking the batter off the spatula (gasp! yes I do that) and so I could hardly wait to try them when they came out of the oven. Yummy yummy yummy. They were the perfect texture and had a rockin’ taste. The cookies are pretty sweet though because they’ve got Oreos and chocolate chips so get a glass of milk ready. These cookies have the crunch of the chocolate Oreo cookie and they taste like the yummy inside frosting plus chocolate chips. They would be awesome for entertaining because they aren’t your average cookie, are clearly home made, and will impress your guests without taking up your whole day! As Cookie Monster would say, “C is for cookie, it’s good enough for me; oh cookie cookie cookie starts with C”!
Oreo Cookie Cookies
From Sugar Cooking
Makes about 30 cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
20 oreos, crushed

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Add in the crushed oreos. Beat on low speed for just a few seconds to break up the oreos in the dough. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.

Drop cookie dough a rounded tbsp at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Enjoy!

Bon Eating and Positive Mental Attitudes for you all!
Whitney

    Talk about Cookie Overload! Love it! I've always liked Oreo chunks in my ice cream so why not in my cookies right? YUM!

    What is that in your header? My good friend "The Repressed Pastry Chef" might just make them for me. Thanks in advance

    LOL, thanks for the info! :) I can't wait to use it.

    I'm not crazy about oreos but definitely think they improve in taste when baked in something else….cookies, perhaps?!
