Cookies and Cream Cookies

This is another Picky Palate recipe (boy do I love that blog!).  I saw there there were Oreos in this and knew I had to try it.  So as soon as I had a package of Oreos, I gave it a go, and  I am glad I did.  These were very good.  The hubs said they tasted like Subway's chocolate cookies, and I agree.  These were very good.  A recipe I will use again!


2 sticks softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet chunks and White chocolate chips)
1 cup cocoa powder
15 whole Oreo Cookies, finely ground


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Beat butter and sugars until well combined.
3. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.
4. Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl.
5. Add to wet ingredients along with cocoa powder, and chocolate chips, slowly mixing until just combined. 6. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch apart from each other.
7. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until cooked through. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Makes 3 dozen cookies

PS:  Look for another yummy cookie recipe in the next few days, trying it out as we speak!  It sure has made my kitchen smell good!
