Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

March 13, 2011

Hi Friends!

Feel like baking today?  Well, have I got a recipe for you!  Last week I spent a whole bunch of time in the kitchen being a baking goddess.  Whenever I bake for the troops, I try to take into consideration what will travel well and taste good once it arrives (it usually takes around 2 weeks for packages to arrive).  Things like lemon bars and other gooey/soft things don’t ship as well as cookies and chocolate covered pretzels.  I always send a big batch of my *famous* chocolate chip cookies (because everybody likes good old American chocolate chip cookies, right?!?), but this time I decided to make some stuffed chocolate chip cookies, too.  I’m not sure who came up with the idea of wrapping two chocolate chip cookies around an Oreo cookie, but I’m pretty sure whoever it was is pretty much a baking goddess, too.  : )  These cookies are not for the faint of heart–they’re literally a triple-decker cookie wrapped into one.  On the other hand, if you’re serving our country in the middle of a desert in Afghanistan, you probably deserve a big treat every now and again, right?  : )

Here’s a peak at the inside:

I pulled three of these big boys aside and put them in the cookie jar for my kids.  I didn’t tell them about the Oreo hidden inside.  Of course, they were kind of stunned (and delighted) at the sheer size of the cookie, and then they were a little puzzled about why there was an Oreo in the  middle.  The stuffed cookies got a bunch of thumbs up, and now everyone is requesting all kinds of other things to be stuffed inside.  John wants me to try a clump of peanut butter next.  I’m not sure how that will hold up, but I’m willing to give it a try. 

Want to make your own?  Here’s my *famous* chocolate chip recipe, which you can just make on its own if you’d like.

Vicki’s Super-Good Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 375

In your mixer bowl, combine:

3/4 C sugar
3/4 C. packed brown sugar
1 C. butter flavored Crisco

Beat on high for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy. 

Add:
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat for 2 more minutes.

In a separate bowl,  combine:
2 1/4 C flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

Add flour mixture slowly to sugar mixture.  Once all the flour is in, beat the whole mixture for about a minute.

Stir in  1/2 bag of chocolate chips and 1/2 bag of mini chocolate chips.

Drop by scoopfuls (I use my Pampered Chef medium scoop) onto greased cookie sheets.

Bake 9-11 minutes until golden brown.  Let cookies sit on sheet for 2 minutes after you take them out of the oven.  Remove to cooling racks.

Now, if you want to make the stuffed version, you make the dough, scoop out two balls and gently mold them around an Oreo cookie.  I kind of pinched the ends together until they were sealed.  It took a few extra minutes to bake the stuffed cookies.  Plan on 11-13 minutes or until they are golden brown.

Enjoy the yummy goodness, friends!

Happy Baking!

XO,

Vicki

      Hmm…I’ve never tried to double the recipe. Is your KitchenAid mixer bowl bigger than mine, because it will end up 3/4 full with one batch. XO

    I’m dying to try a recipe I’ve found similar to this! Instead of an oreo, put in a cake ball. Yeah, cake ball. They’re amazing!

      Hey Ms. Jeny! I started baking for the troops through Operation Baking Gals. There is a link on the side of my blog. Right now I have a good friend over in Afghanistan, so I am sending all my boxes to her. I sent a whole big bunch of baked goods and candy, etc. and she will pass them out to those in her company. If you need an address, let me know…you can join my little crew sending things to Deanna.
