Cookie on Cookie Action

Now, I'll need you to throw chronology to the wind with this post. These cookies were actually the first things I baked in Georgia.


See how empty everything looks?


You'll also notice that I'm using a hand mixer. Might be the last time for that... but you'll just have to wait for more news on that front.

Anyway, I was invited to a meeting at a colleague's house the first weekend I was in the new place. So, not wanting to show up emptyhanded, I made Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies. I'm not sure if I used this recipe or another one, but you can find it all over the blogosphere.


The cookie is pretty basic. Make up a chocolate chip cookie dough but before the chip step, add in 20 crushed Oreo cookies and blend.


Once it looks like this, then you can fold in the chocolate chips as usual.


Now drop the cookies by rounded tablespoons and bake those suckers off.


And while we're waiting, have a look at the new kitchen. Not nearly as kitschy or adorable as the last kitchen (as seen in the header), but it will do in a pinch. And I have plans for kitchen betterment, as I'm sure you've already guessed.

Back to the cookies...


Out of the oven and cooled on the rack, these cookies are a thing of beauty. I believe that there is not a simpler pleasure than a baked Oreo cookie. And combining this pleasure with the comfort of a good chocolate chip cookie just cannot (I repeat)cannot fail.

Everyone at the meeting raved about these cookies-n-cream treats and even though there were only 4.5 of us there and I brought a heaping plate full, I didn't come home with even one cookie. Each person happily took home several. That's what I call a success.

You with the apron. I'm so jealous.

I dunno about the cookie on cookie, but I love both cookies separately so I'm sure you're right. Why not mix them? Like Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Mmm.

The apron! Love!

Kate: Along those lines, I see no reason why you couldn't make a version of these cookies with a peanut butter cookie base and peanut butter cream Oreos. I really want to try out a mint version myself...

Last weekend, Kira and I made chocolate chip cookies with pulverized Rainbow Chip cookies thrown in. Apparently anything goes in the world of polyamorous cookies.

if i wasnt smitten with the apron, the fact that you have introduced me to a cookie that counts 'oreos' as an ingredient just made my thursday.
i might even be so bold as to say it made my week.
