Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I remember in seventh grade, a girl Erin got me a package for Oreo's for my birthday. It wasn't the single serving sizes but it also wasn't the entire package. It was probably 15 cookies. It was probably my favorite gift ever.
I remember sitting in my basement, my awkward seventh grade self with the palate expander that gave me not only a gap in my teeth but a lisp, knobby knees and indoor soccer shoes on. What a gem I was! I don't know why I wasn't on more guy's "top fives." What a horrible time. I think I cried almost every single day at Frost middle school when I came home. I wanted to be way cooler than I was but for some reason I guess my training bra wearing self wasn't Grade A material. If they could see me now! Alas, I have grown out of that stage, and my taste for Oreo's has mostly come and gone. Well, with the exception of these, as taken from The Picky Palate.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag Oreo Cookies

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2. 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.
3. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

I am so glad those awkward stages are out-grow-able :) I made these cookies the other day as well and they were a huge hit!

Ugh. I remember jr. and sr. high as being miserable in the self-esteem and confidence areas. I dread seeing my daughter go through that.

I'm not a chocolate fan, but Oreos are an exception if I make the mistake of having ONE. Because then it's another and another and another. It's the only chocolate "thing" that gets me that way.

I don't think middle school was a good time for anyone.... what an awkward age! If only we had these delicious cookies to drown our sorrows back then!
