Cookies & Cream Cookie Dough Balls

HAPPY SATURDAY!! 

I can't wait for you all to try this recipe. I've been craving cookie dough like no other lately so I came up with this recipe that has the perfect cookie dough consistency, has no eggs so it's safe to eat, is sweet AND salty.. And... Has OREOS.  

How can you beat that! They are so easy to make and perfect for a party, birthday, or just a Friday night. Holla. They don't require baking- just a few minutes in the fridge and you're good to go!  

Try it out! I have a feeling it won't be the only time you make them.

Recipe makes 20-22 Tablespoon sized Cookie Dough Balls 

INGREDIENTS

1 stick (1/2 Cup) Salted Butter, room temperature  

1 Cup Granulated Sugar  

1 Cup All Purpose Flour

2 Teaspoons Cornstarch

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Teaspoon Salt  

2 Tablespoons milk (I used almond milk)

2/3 Cup Smashed Oreos

White Chocolate for coating (optional) about 2/3 Cups white chocolate chips 

 

DIRECIONS

1. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. 

2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, corn starch, baking soda and salt until fully combined. Add the dry mixture to the creamed butter and mix for 2-3 minutes. The dough will most likely be crumbly- add the milk 1 Tablespoon at a time. If it is smooth and not crumbly without the milk, do not add it. THEN add the smashed Oreos and mix until incorporated (about 1 minute.)

3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 5 minutes! if you choose to use white chocolate, microwave it now in 30 second increments and mix in between each until smooth. The reason for this is that you don't want the chocolate to burn- mixing in between is important!

4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll into Tablespoon size balls. Either serve like this or cover with chocolate evenly and refrigerate for another 5 minutes or until chocolate is firm. 

Cookies And Cream Fudge

Cookies & Cream? Aw fudge! 

Sorry, had to.

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! I have good news- ITS ALMOST THE WEEKEND! AND- I have made a delicious and simple recipe that I know you will love. Fudge has to be one of the easiest and tastiest desserts out there; especially these. In this recipe, there are only 3 ingredients and you can whip it up in less 15 minutes (Not including the setting time.) See, I am very picky when it comes to fudge.. It has to be perfectly sweet, smooth and MUST have some sort of mix-in that has a different texture. These Oreos are perfect because the slight bitter taste of the cookie marries perfectly with the sweetness of the fudge. It taste's exactly like the name- which is another thing I look for in a dessert.

I have tried other fudge recipes before that use butter, powdered sugar, etc. and I love those. However, if you are pressed for time or do not have those certain items in your kitchen- these are a great substitute (if not a better one.) Give it a try!! 

INGREDIENTS:

12oz (2 Cups) Good Quality White Chocolate Chips

1 15oz Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

2 Tablespoons Butter

10 Oreo Cookies

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Spray an 8X8 baking dish with nonstick spray and set aside. Then, Put 10 Oreos in a plastic bag and break apart with your hands or with a rolling pin. Set bag aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, stir together the butter and white chocolate chips on low heat until smooth. Do not stop stirring; you do not want the chocolate to burn. Once smooth, quickly add the sweetened condensed milk, stir for a minute until completely combined and remove from heat. Toss 3/4 of your crushed cookies into the saucepan and mix. Then pour into a greased 8X8 baking dish and top with the rest of your smashed Oreos. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. I regfigerate mine overnight to ensure they set properly. Once fully cooled, cut and enjoy!

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!
