You wont believe how excited my kids got when I told them I was going to make cookies, with Oreo cookies! For some reason those words worked like magic because they were perfect angels waiting for these cookies to be done.
I made a batch of these cookies for a get together my husband and some friends were having. The cookies were gone in no time! Everyone was raving about them. I don’t need to tell you how much my kids loved them, right?. The cookie dough recipe is from Nestle Toll house chocolate chip cookies and I just added crushed Oreos. I changed a couple of things though, I doubled the amount of salt this recipe called for because I was afraid they cookies were going to be way to sweet, I did a good thing here, The dough worked perfect with the Oreos.
Here’s my precious daughter #2 crushing Oreos while eating Oreos, multitasking is everything is this house hold. The well loved rolling pin she’s using belonged to my sweet grandmother. Oh, it’s the little things!
I suggest to crush the cookies this way instead of using a food processor. You really want to have big chunks of cookies instead of crumbs.
I like to reserve some pieces of the crushed Oreos and top the cookie dough balls with it. They will really show once they’re baked and the cookies will look a lot prettier.
