Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies from Very Culinary

My pants are tight.

Snug as a bug in a rug, people.

And do my friends bring me carrot sticks or offer to run with me? Oh no. Instead, they call my attention to cookie recipes involving Oreos stuffed inside two chocolate chip cookies.

I’m not one to place blame or name drop *cough* Rachel *cough*, since many of my friends do this. But y’all are killing me. You know I’m weak when it comes to sugary confections.

My advice to you – make these. But make them right before you’re meeting a friend, or sibling, or an entire preschool class. So you can pawn them off on other victims recipients. If not, make them now, while it’s still March and not bathing suit season. Because once that happens, I cannot be held responsible.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 24 gigantic cookies
Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 13 minutes

Ingredients
• 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 Double Stuff Oreo cookies

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with a mixer until well combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.

In medium bowl mix the 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 ball on the bottom. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo cookie is fully enclosed with dough.

Place onto parchment or silpat lined baking sheets and bake cookies for approximately 13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

(from Amandeleine, originally from Picky Palate)

ok, I have my ingredients all mixed up and I’m getting ready to mix it into balls, but…..it’s so fluffy that I can’t. I’m wondering if I read the directions for the flour wrong. I used 3 and 1/2 cups of flour. Is that right? It’s not like regular cookie dough at all, not sticky or wet so it won’t form into a ball. Help!

Hi Ami – 3 1/2 cups of flour is correct. I couldn’t say what happened, since I wasn’t watching you make them. I haven’t had any issues with these cookies, but a few other people have said the dough was too sticky to work with, so they put it in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up. Try that!

Ami February 8, 2012 at 5:20 pm

thank you for the quick response! I actually just started from scratch. I had to sift out my chocolate chips from the first batch because I didn’t have enough for the 2nd, haha. Anyway, I must have made a mistake the first time b/c the 2nd one turned out perfect, not too dry or sticky. I did run out of vanilla extract, so I didn’t have enough and I didn’t get nearly as many balls out of the dough, so I hope they turn out okay! I guess we’ll find out in 13 minutes! Thanks again!

These Cookies turned out Fantastic! I followed every direction (normally I don’t) You should. don’t use double stuff though. and they don’t need to be completely gold. since the layers of actual cooke are thinner than normal.
Thank you for the Recipe!

I just made these and they are sooooo good. I could only make 18. I will defiantly be making these again soon :)

I just made these, and they didn’t turn out quite as beautiful as they are pictured here. It took too much dough for me to cover the Oreo completely, so the cookies are HUGE (I could only make about 10, even though the recipe says it makes 24). Next time, I might try to use regular Oreos instead of Double Stuff.

this didn’t work they just melted into a pile of mush.

Amy February 4, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Sorry Grady :( All I can say is I’ve made them several times without any issues and so have many other people. Then there are some who have run into problems. Maybe you flattened the top and bottom dough around the Oreo too much, instead of leaving a ball? Maybe the temperature of your oven is higher then mine? I have no idea what goes wrong for you and the others. It’s a pretty basic recipe.

So I tried making these . . .and they flopped. I did as comments suggested and cut back on flour, big mistake!! Less flour made them melt, turning them into UFO looking things. It also made the dough super sticky, which wasn’t great to work with. However, they taste and smell AMAZING! If (who am I kidding? WHEN) I make these again I’ll use the amount of flour called for in the recipe. Other then my mistake, these cookies are so good . . .and guilty.

Hi Brianna – I’ve made them with the mint oreos, too. If your friends don’t like them, you need new friends! Ah, I kid. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Okay – so I made these tonight and they are AMAZING! I had a box of Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s from Trader Joe’s that I needed to get rid of (for some reason), so I subbed them in for the Double Stuff Oreos. If you enjoy a hint of mint, it was a great substitution. I’m super excited to share these with my coworkers tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Erica – so glad they worked out for you. A minty center sounds sounds like a great variation :D

Thanks for the recipe. Going to bake these and put them in a christmas tin for my oreo obsessed brother-in-law as part of his christmas present. He saw a picture of these and was amazed. Can’t wait to see his face when he opens the tin.

Bridget December 2, 2011 at 7:43 am

These look so good! Me and my friends do a cookie exchange every year and I am definitely making these! Can you use things like Betty Crocker cookie mixes, or do you need to make the dough from scratch?

Reply

Amy December 2, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Hi Bridget – I’ve only made them the way in the recipe, so I couldn’t say what your results would be like with packaged dough, but you could read through some of the other comments who have tried it and see what they say. Thanks!

AWESOME! these cookies are absolutely DEE-lish. my family used Pillsbury cookie dough (cylinder) with the double stuffed oreos. they’re addictive already :). ENJOY !

Ashley November 25, 2011 at 7:07 pm

I just made some, and I see that everyone was having problems with the dough sticking to your fingers. Just spray a little Pam on your fingers, and you’re good to go. Good luck, and thanks for the recipe (:

Hey, I just tried making these cookie and the only problem that I have is they spread out while baking. So they look like UFO’s. What am I doing wrong? They taste Great but don’t look like the picture!

Reply

Amy November 22, 2011 at 7:48 pm

Hm. I don’t know :( The only thing I can think of is maybe you used too much dough surrounding the Oreo?

Reply

Denise December 24, 2011 at 4:47 pm

The same thing happened me. Just chill the dough for a little while and they’ll come out looking like the picture. That’s what I did. They’re so delicious I just made them for my fam for Christmas Eve.

I made these with store bought cookie dough (not the square ones, just the cylinder package) and they turned out AWESOME! Everyone loved them.

Reply

Samantha November 17, 2011 at 10:33 am

What brand of cookie dough did you use? I was wanting to try the same thing. But am worried of how they’ll turn out.

Reply

Yara November 10, 2011 at 7:49 pm

I’m going to attempt making these, I can’t wait. But I’ve heard that 3 1/2 cups of flour were to flowery. I usually make my regular chocolate chip cookies with only 2 1/4 cups of flour. But let’s hope for the best!!!! Thanks for the directions!

Reply

Laura December 21, 2011 at 11:24 am

I used the 3 1/2 cups of flour, and it was WAY too much. I would definitely recommend using less, 2 1/4 cup sounds better. But otherwise these were GREAT and I plan on trying them again!! Thanks for the recipe!

just made these tonight, and they are absolutely awesome… I chose to substitute part of the chocolate chips with chopped walnuts and – perfection! :)

Danielle November 3, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Can I use store bought cookie dough?

Reply

Amy November 3, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Hi Danielle – a few others have asked the same thing. I honestly couldn’t say…I don’t know if the consistency of store bought would be the same as this recipe. If the dough is too thin, it could run. I also don’t know how many pre-made packages you’d need to buy. However, I say try it! I’d love to know if they turn out.

Katrina October 30, 2011 at 3:21 pm

I started hyperventilating as soon as I inhaled the aura of the dough.
These cookies – NEED TO MAKE!
No exceptions. If you don’t, you’ll regret it later.
Mm, Mm, Mm.

It was very sticky, trying to form the sticky dough around the oreo. So what I did was put a bowl of flour on the side, and before I rolled the cookies into balls, I dipped my hands in flour lightly. It helped a ton.

Dana October 23, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Thanks!

Dana October 23, 2011 at 12:00 pm

I made them and they are delicious; however, I was beyond frustrated as the dough was stuck all over my hands and not the Oreos…. Any suggestions?

Reply

Amy October 23, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Maybe putting the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes would help firm it up before using? I’ve done that with a few other cookie recipes. Also, see Carla’s comment above.

aloha from hawaii.. i absolutely LOVE these cookies! i have 9 older brothers.. (yes i said 9).. (big hawaiian raised family).. and these cookies are a hit! hands down the most favorite cookie of the family!.. let’s just say.. it takes way longer to bake than i can make them for my brothers. however… we need to do a lot of surfing to work them off.. but it’s definitely worth it! and we love surfing so it’s a win-win. mahalo for sharing the recipe. it’s definitely a keeper.

Greetings Nani! So glad your family is enjoying them. And yes, there’s no question that eating even one of these requires aerobic exercise afterwards or they’ll stick to your thighs. Wish *I* could go surfing ;-) Cheers to you and your hungry brothers :D – Amy

Christina September 17, 2011 at 4:41 pm

Just made them and WOW! I figured out what makes them run–too much cookie dough. If you follow the recipe and use roughly a tablespoon on each side of the Oreo, you’re good to go!

Mama Durso September 15, 2011 at 6:41 pm

These are incredible. The End.

Just kidding. I have a funny story to share:

When making these I mixed the butter and sugars together expertly, added the eggs and the vanilla like a boss and was then getting ready to mix the dry ingredients together. I saw that I would need a 1 cup and 1/2 cup measuring cups for the flour… but I couldn’t find my 1/2 cup. I found my 1/4 cup though, and that’s when I panicked. Instead of measuring out 3/4 cup brown sugar (dipping in the 1/4 cup 3 times) had measured out 1.5 cups brown sugar (dipping the 1/2 cup 3 times). OOPS! What to do? Double entire recipe and end up with 48 massive cookies. And they have all been awesome.

Reply

Amy September 17, 2011 at 7:41 pm

HA. That is funny. And certainly not beyond my realm of doing the same thing. Was never good with math/fractions anyway ;-) And hey, nothing wrong with 48 of these bad boys…and long as you pace yourself!

I made one to start to see how the cookie would cook and it starts to run. How do I make these without having the cookie dough run? Please help me because I want these to be perfect and want them to be the hit at my boyfriends fantasy draft party.

Reply

Amy August 18, 2011 at 4:41 pm

Hi Shannon – I have never had this problem, however it seems to be a mixed bag…some readers encountered no issues, like myself, where others have had the same question as you. I would recommend you read through some of the earlier comments and the replies to see if you can find a solution. Good luck!

Reply

Tiff November 23, 2011 at 1:28 pm

I’ve found that if you soften the butter in the microwave, as opposed to letting it soften on the counter top, the cookie dough runs more and is sometimes even crispy around the edges.

Amanda August 14, 2011 at 2:53 am

me and my friend was thinking of baking these tonight :D
but i’m from sweden and i’m not sure how much a cup is cause here we use dl but hopefully they’ll turn out great :D

elizabetta September 29, 2011 at 11:28 am

i spent a lot of time in sweden when my family lived in europe as my father was in the army. i believe one cup = 2 dl. that is if you haven’t already figured it out.

my swedish is bad but lycka till!

OMG! Thank you, Amy, for sharing this delicious recipe! I was assigned to make dessert for a Sunday School beach day, and I came across the picture and link for your website on Pinterest. I have never made cookies from scratch, but they sounded way too good not to try! I followed the recipe to a tee except I subbed Cool Mint Oreos for the mint chocolate flavor. They turned out just perfect!!!My husband and I just enjoyed one, and I hope we don’t eat them all before the event tomorrow. Thanks again :-)
