stuffing Oreos, I live by a deep conviction that one should have variety in one's life.
I'm speaking from my heart today, people. My. Heart.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Stuffed Oreos, I branched out and created another version, full of yummy cinnamon--Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Stuffed Blonde Oreos.
I had a helper on the day these cookies had their photo session.
And I'm using the word "helper" very, very loosely here.
|He's getting a little desperate now.|
|There is a three year old boy somewhere in this picture.|
|Not really heartbroken, just trying to make me believe he is.|
But why does it still get to me?
-I would let these come to room temperature before eating. I like it when the cookie dough is squishy and the chocolate if not too hard. They will get that way if they have been in the fridge for a long time. (You should probably store them in the fridge, but let them come to room temperature to eat.)
-This recipe is a cinch. You could definitely substitute with your favorite edible (eggless) cookie dough here.
-My packages of almond bark were 16 ounces apiece. It took two packages to dip all the Oreos. An alternative would be to forget about dipping them in the almond bark, and just roll the perimeter in cinnamon sugar. But I like them dipped.
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 (16-ounce) package blonde Oreos or vanilla sandwich cookies
2 (16-ounce) packages vanilla almond bark or vanilla disks for dipping (melted according to package directions)
Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling tops
Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and condensed milk. Add flour, salt, and ground cinnamon and beat well.
Separate each cookie into two halves. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop a level mound of cookie dough onto one of the halves and top with the other half, slightly pressing down. Repeat with remaining cookies. Chill in fridge for about an hour. Dip in melted bark, letting excess drip off, and place on wax paper lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with a tiny amount of cinnamon sugar to decorate and place in fridge until chocolate hardens.
