In an effort to make a good nearly-first impression our new group of teenagers, I wanted a WOW cookie--something that everyone would LOVE. Raisins, Peanut butter, and Oatmeal are all a bit polarizing, but I figured I couldn't go wrong with Chocolate plus Oreos.
These cookies came out oh-so-fudgy and delicious. My husband said, "These are amazing!" (Quite a compliment given that he eats my cookies regularly.) These are a go-to winner for sure!
Double Chocolate Oreo Cookies Recipe
recipe adapted from Shugary Sweets on Tasty Kitchen
Makes 45 cookies
1/2 cups Unsalted Butter
1/2 cups Shortening
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cups Brown Sugar
2 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 cups Flour
1/2 cups Unsweetened Cocoa
1/2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
12 whole Oreo Cookies, Crushed
1-1/2 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, shortening and sugars together until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix in the flour, cocoa and salt and baking soda. Stir in Oreos and chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven (Shugary Sweets says she tap the tops lightly to flatten and get crackled tops). Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
