Complaining about problems in life is something I try really really hard to avoid. I have so much to be thankful for, yet every once in a while a nogoodreallybadandawful day comes along. One that leaves me feeling helpless and irritated but I always try to be hopeful that it will get better! So today I'm going to make it better. Tonight you will find me watching an old movie, drinking a glass of embarrassingly cheap wine and probably eating a whole tray of these:
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe from the fantabulous Jenny of Picky Palate
2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 pkg. Oreo cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo Cookie. Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo cookie is enclosed with dough. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies.
