I’m in Poland, its early morning and its -1 C outside. Way too cold for me! So I’ll be staying inside today. Maybe I’ll even bake something. But for now, I made you some yummy cookies.
I’m not joking.
And these cookies taste just like that. Like cookies and cream. And they smell like heaven.
They are inspired by these, which were some of the best cookies ever.
My family fought over them. But I found myself trying to eat around the chocolate chunks while looking for more Oreo pieces, so I decided to make them again and omit the chocolate.
Cookies and cream heaven.
COOKIES AND CREAM COOKIES
Adapted from Bakergirl.
I like quite a bit of salt in my cookies, for flavour and that sweet/salty balance. But if you don’t feel free to reduce the salt down to 1 tsp.
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
15 Oreos with vanilla creme, roughly chopped into 4 – 6 pieces
15 Oreos with chocolate creme, roughly chopped into 4-6 pieces
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 Oreo pieces and mix until just combined (this dough, raw, also tastes like cookies and cream).
Now. These cookies are even more amazingly good if you are patient, cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight before baking. It gives the Oreos and cookie dough a chance to marinate together and make heaven. But if you simply cannot wait…
Scoop tablespoons of dough onto baking trays and bake for 9-10 minutes. Makes 36 cookies.
