How about Oreo cookie pieces inside of some Oreo Pudding Cookies?
Whenever I go to the store to buy Oreos, I have to purchase more than one package. Usually the reason being, one is for a recipe and the other pack is to munch on while I’m making the recipe. I do the same thing with chocolate chips. It’s bad, I know.
So, the good thing is… all you need is one package of Oreos . Because, you’ll only be using about 15 of those delicious cookies. And with the rest, you can choose to eat while waiting for these cookies to come out of the oven.
With Oreo cookie pieces already mixed throughout these cookies, there’s even more crumbled on the tops.
But then, you have even MORE Oreo love inside…with an Oreo pudding mix! It gives it more Oreo flavor, of course. It also helps thicken up the cookie dough without using too much flour.
With all of these ingredients, makes for a soft cookie. Unless you are a crunchy cookie type– just bake a bit longer.
You could put some of the white chocolate chips inside of the cookie dough. Where as I just melted them to drizzle across the tops. I’d figured it was already bunchy with all the Oreos. You still need some dough to keep the cookie together.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cream together both sugars with the butter until creamy. Add the egg with the vanilla. Then all of the dry ingredients, including the pudding mix.
Tip: Remember to never over mix when you put the flour in any batter/dough. The gluten (protein) in the flour starts to develop in with the wet ingredients. Once there is too much or if the gluten is over mixed, the batter/dough will be tough (and dry).
A good rule of thumb is to just mix in the flour until you no longer see any streaks in the batter/dough.
Whenever you’re going to add something to your batter/dough, (after you’ve already mixed in the flour) gently stir in the chocolate chips or whatever you’re wanting to use. In this case, it’s the huge pieces of broken Oreos!
Roll the cookie dough into medium balls onto a cookie sheet. Gently flatten the tops with your palm. By doing this, it allows the middle of the cookie dough to bake evenly with the sides. Bake for about 11-12 minutes on the lowest shelf in your oven. Depending upon your oven. My oven puts out more heat from the very top… therefore my cookies want to over cook on the top. Especially these, because of the pudding mix inside. They tend to be a little sensitive. (Remember no tough cookies!)
When you pull them out of the oven, they may seem not all the way done. Allow the cookies to finish “baking” on the hot pan for additional 5 minutes. I will usually do this to all of the cookies I bake. It makes them soft and chewy. (Then you can put them on a cooling rack or paper towels.)
Now for those white pieces of chocolate. (As you probably know by now, I love white chocolate.) Melt chocolate pieces over a double boil. Meaning, the chocolate is in a heat safe bowl setting over a pot of hot water. (Do not let the water touch the bowl.)
Drizzle the melted white chocolate over all of the cookies when they’re some what cooled. Sprinkle some broken pieces of Oreos. Allow the chocolate to set up for a few minutes. Otherwise, they are ready to eat!
