Sin in the Oven
Cookies people....I am referring to cookies. A little sinful treat here on this delightful Sunday in September. This afternoon I baked up a ridiculously awesome cookie that I first read about in this magazine. The original recipe calls for a homemade chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I cheated and bought two rolls of generic chocolate chip cookie dough. I know, I know.....terrible, but tasty.
I used two rolls of chocolate chip cookie dough and one box of Oreo cookies. Seriously, this recipe is about combining those two delectable cookies. I used a cookie scoop to make sure I had even proportions and placed one scoop on the top and one scoop on the bottom of an Oreo....just like this.
Next, I squished the dough all around the Oreo until it was hidden in the middle. Then I placed them on a baking tray that was lined with parchment paper. They will spread a bit, so leave a bit more room than you see in this picture.
I baked them per the instructions on the package of the cookie dough. For me that was for 9-12 minutes at 350 degrees. 11 minutes was perfect in my oven. Then I allowed them to cool on the kitchen island. They look a bit lumpy. Lumpy is good.
Here is a very scientific cross section of this masterpiece.
They are delicious. Make them....because I said so.
