I wanted to start this post off by proclaiming that I’m not one to follow the food fads, to make the latest trendy internet find. But, really, that’s not at all true. In fact, those are precisely the things that drive me to bake and to write.

So, without further ado, I present the oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookie. Recipe via Picky Palate.

I won’t post the full recipe here, but my modifications were to use dark brown sugar and only about 2/3 of a package of mini chocolate chips. I didn’t have a 1 1/2 tbsp cookie scoop – mine was 2 tsp, so I used 4 scoops for each cookie (which should have been less than 2 scoops of 1 1/2 tbsp, but I only ended up with 20 cookies and they needed a full 15 minutes to bake). I actually think you could sub rolls of pre-packaged cookie dough – they tend to be cakier cookies that I think would work well here.

An observation – these were a hit with the men. I posted a pic on facebook and got comments from my guy friends and even the husbands of my girl friends. The guys at work tackled these with the most vigor – the women opting for halves or even quarters of the monstrosities.
