Cookies and Cream Cookies

These are the cookies I made for our Pinterest Party!  Since the Oreos are the only thing that give them the chocolate flavor, they're light, not dense; so they'd be perfect for those of you who don't like super rich, chocolatey desserts.

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup crushed Oreos
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment. In a stand mixer, beat together the butter, sugars, salt, vanilla, baking soda, and baking powder until well combined. Add the egg, beating until smooth.
  2. Add the flour and milk and mix until smooth. Put about one cup of oreos in a plastic bag and crush them using a meat tenderizer or a cleaver. I crushed mine to the point where there were still some big chunks, but also most of it was smaller crumbs. Pour the crushed oreos into the dough mixture and mix again until oreos are thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Shape cookie dough into balls about 1 inch in diameter and place them on baking sheet about 2 inches apart. If you want the cookies to spread more, you might want to flatten the balls with the palm of your hands before baking.
  4. Bake the cookies for 11 to 15 minutes, until they’re a light golden brown at the bottom.
  5. Remove from the oven, and move cookies to cookie rack to finish cooling.
