You should all know by now that I love a challenge, especially in the kitchen. My sister sent me a text the other day presenting me with such a challenge and immediately the wheels started turning. She sent me a picture of a cookie one of her coworkers had made. It was an Oreo cookie, INSIDE a chocolate chip cookie. Now of course I couldn’t just recreate this and be on my way, because I’m an obnoxious pain in the ass. I had to figure out how to make it better. By a show of hands, who knows what ingredient will make ANY recipe better? Anyone? Thats right…
Some of you may be rolling your eyes, some of you may (sadly) be gagging, and some (hopefully most!) are throwing up your arms in joy. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you…
Oreo Stuffed Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
Start with a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe a package of Oreos and 5 slices of thick cut bacon. End with a mouthgasm.
While you are putting the cookie dough together, cook the bacon in the microwave until very crispy. Crumble/dice the bacon when its done and cooled and add it to the dough with the chocolate chips.
I had some trouble trying to figure out the best way to “stuff” the Oreo inside. First I tried to sandwich the Oreo between mounds of cookie dough, and that worked out pretty well, but I wanted to try some other methods. So then I greased up my hands and totally engulfed the Oreo into a ball of dough. Again, pretty good, but I tried one more method just because I could. The third time around I stared with an Oreo on the cookie sheet then just mounded the dough on top. All three methods are acceptable and effective, it just depends on which one you feel like.
Just like regular cookies, bake them at 375, for about 7 minutes.
