Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies – A cookie in a cookie! That’s what these pretty much are. Bake a batch soon, they are sure to become a favorite. Chocolate chips and Oreos are a winner. Enjoy!

When I first started thinking up a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, I didn’t think of putting chopped up Oreos in the batter. Then when looking through my pantry and noticing that I had two bags of unopened Oreos, that’s when decided to make a recipe with those gems. Love the idea of a cookie in a cookie. Well, these came out great and the whole family loved them. My daughter was visiting from Law School and grabbed a bunch to share with her roommates. I ended up baking another batch the next day. That’s how fast they went. Try these soon, they will surely be a hit with your family and friends too.
