from the recipe at Very Culinary
1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 package Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar with a mixer until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a medium bowl mix flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
With a cookie scoop, form balls with the dough.
Place one ball on top of an Oreo cookie, and another on the bottom. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping with hands until the Oreo is fully enclosed in dough. (Note: use just enough dough to cover the whole Oreo, no more...they end up big enough as it is.)
Place unto parchment lined baking sheets and bake cookies for approximately 13 minutes or until golden brown. (Note: mine definitely took long than 13 minutes, so check as you go...but don't over-bake or the bottoms will burn.)
Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Makes 24 ginormous cookies.
And friends, when I say ginormous, that's exactly what I mean. So huge that if you eat too much cookie dough during the baking process, you won't even have room for a whole one. (Yes, I speak from personal experience.) Grab them with a glass of milk for the ultimate midnight snack. Perfection. <3
