Golden Oreo Stuffed Sugar Cookies

An Oreo? Inside another cookie?!  How amazing do these look?!? 

Okay I must admit- I think Jenny Flake at (www.picky-palate.com) was the first blogger I had ever seen put an Oreo inside a cookie and I truly believe she is brilliant- but now I see them everywhere and I am loving every part of it. How can you go wrong stuffing a cookie with another cookie? Especially GOLDEN Oreos like I did here! Try my recipe out and let me know what you think. I guarantee you will want to finish every single cookie. I know I did!

INGREDIENTS:

1 Cup salted butter, softened

1 1/2 Cup sugar

1 egg

1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract

2 3/4 Cups flour  

2 tsp baking soda  

You will also need:

about 16 golden oreos

 

DIRECTIONS: 

1. Preheat your oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

2. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. On low speed, add the egg and vanilla extract, scraping down the sides as needed. 

3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet mixture and mix until it forms a smooth dough. With a spoon, your hands, or a Tbsp size ice cream scoop, scoop up two small amount of dough (both about the size of a tablespoon) and place on both sides of an Oreo (shown in my photo.) Then, cover the Oreo evenly with the dough so that no part of the Oreo is exposed.

3. Place each covered cookie on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. These cookies will not spread too much. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until very light golden brown. Let cool on a cooling rack and dig in!
