Peanut Butter and Oreo Cookies

What do you get when you take two great things and add them together? Well, mainly stuff like Kingdom Hearts (Final Fantasy combined with Disney? I’m sold!), or Machete (Danny Trejo plus graphic violence, plus bad acting, plus tits, plus f*cking with the wrong Mexican). But in this case, it’s to take two of my favourite baking ingredients, peanut butter and Oreos to make something that’s just that little bit excessive. One of these will leave you feeling like you don’t need your dinner but it’s 100% worth it.

  Oreo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookie

I’d been meaning to put an Oreo inside a cookie for a long while now, ever since my friend Dan did it at the Wonder Years house show my friend Reece put on a few years back. But I just had to take it one step further and found a recipe here which obliged. Peanut butter. However if I were to do these again, I’d personally add that little bit more peanut butter so you get more of a kick.

Ingredients
  • 225g butter, softened
  • 110g packed brown sugar
  • 150g granulate white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 65g peanut butter (I’d personally use a little more next time).
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 450g all-purpose white flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 100g ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 1-2 packs Oreo cookies
Instructions
  1. Cream together the butter and the sugars. Beating until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in the eggs, one at a time. Beating well after each addition.
  3. Beat in the vanilla extract and the peanut butter.
  4. In a separate bowl mix together the baking soda and the flour.
  5. Mix in the flour in several additions. The dough will be fairly dry but should form into a block. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  6. Set aside in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  7. Pre-heat the oven to 170°C and line a baking tray with grease proof paper.
  8. Divide out the dough into balls. They should be large enough that when flattened they are slightly larger than an Oreo.
  9. Place an Oreo on top of one of these disks, place another disk on top and merge the sides together around the Oreo so it’s completely encased.
  10. Bake for 9-13 minutes, taking out while the cookie is still ever so slightly undercooked on the cop.
  11. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
