I have to be honest. When I first saw these cookies on Bakergirl, I was a little skeptical.
They are chocolate chip cookies with Oreo chunks in them.
This photo makes them look deliciously chewy and gooey, but I was worried about what Oreos would do to their texture. I thought they might make the cookies annoyingly crunchy just in certain parts, like nuts do.
Because these cookies are awesome. Did you hear me? AWESOME.
They taste like cookies and cream. And like chocolate chip cookies at the same time.
Its kind of like having the best of both worlds. Actually, scrap that. These cookies ARE the best of any world.
The Oreos, and their filling, do great things to this cookie. I can’t even describe it to you.
I love these cookies so much that I want to go and bake another batch (because they are almost all gone!). They are quite possibly some of the best cookies I have ever made and ever eaten (huge call).
CHOCOLATE AND OREO CHUNK COOKIES
Adapted from Bakergirl.
220g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups plain flour
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips or chunks
1/2 cup white chocolate chips or chunks
15 Oreos, roughly chopped into about 6 chunks
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line baking trays with parchment paper.
Beat the butter and sugars together using an electric mixer until combined. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
Mix in the flour, salt and baking soda on a low speed until combined. Add the chocolate chunks and the Oreo pieces and mix until just combined (this is some of the best dough I’ve ever tasted).
Scoop tablespoons of the mixture onto the lined trays and bake for 10, until the edges are just golden.
Eat up! Makes 36 cookies.
