My Kind of Stuffing

Picky Palate's Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I feel like I should be baking Thanksgivingy, cinnamony, pumpkiny treats right now. But today just called for some serious chocolate chip cookies. And these were the perfect feel good Sunday sweet. They would have made an even better Friday treat though. Then I could have eaten them over the whole weekend instead of wanting to eat them all in one day. I try to start the week off sweet free you know. Try being the key word.

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to make these. I know you’ve probably seen them all over the interwebs.

I mean jumbo chocolate chip cookies…

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

…stuffed with Double Stuf Oreo cookies.



The Picky Palate Cookbook

My friend Jenny of started making these cookies a while ago and I can’t believe I have not baked any before today. But now that I have her new cookbook (filled with plenty of sweets by the way) in my kitchen, I guess baking her cookies is the next best thing to baking up cookies with her sweet, smiling face.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients

Your basic chocolate chip cookie ingredients all ready to go.

Making Cookie Dough

Ready to become cookie dough.


And now for the star. The surprise inside.

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just scoop cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo cookie.


I used a regular size ice cream scoop.

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sandwich the cookie sandwich with another scoop on the bottom.

That’s some kind of awesome.

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now, gently seal the dough and tuck the cookie safely inside.

These make huge cookies by the way.

Picky Palate's Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Giant Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Drastically delicious and easy, too.

I’ve made some brownie stuffed pillow cookies before, but these save you the extra step of baking the inside sweet. Love it.

Picky Palate's Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here’s my attempt at gently biting away the cookie so you can see the pretty Oreo layers inside.

Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

And this is what I would call a face plant.


P.S. I finally added a printable recipe function.
I feel like a grown up food blogger now.

Picky Palate's Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Servings: 18-24 cookies


  • 8 oz (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 10-12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 pkg Double Stuf Oreo Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add butter and sugars to the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
  3. In a large bowl, sift the flour, salt, and baking soda with a wire whisk until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix until combined.
  4. Use an ice cream scoop to place a scoop of cookie dough on top of an Oreo cookie. Place another scoop on the bottom of the Oreo. Seal the edges together by pressing and cupping the dough in hand until the Oreo is completely enclosed. Shape into a thick patty. Repeat with remaining cookies and dough.
  5. Place the stuffed cookies on the prepared baking sheet a couple of inches apart and bake for 11-15 minutes, until the cookies are cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack

These could be dangerous… and I say that in the best way possible.

These look delicious. I can’t wait to try making them for the holidays!

Another chocolate temptation :P

It looks sooooo delicious. I’m not a big fun of Oreo, but in this kind of cookies I would definitely try them!

WOW, What a great idea. These look delicious and of course you left out the calories… LOL, :-)

Oh. I am craving those right now. Thanks a lot. So hungry. Ugh. Why must you do this to me? I mean cake pops are adorable but THIS. I just want to eat the screen.

OMG! Awesome! These cookies have to be really good, i have to do them soon!

November 19, 2012 04:00 AM
Glynis said...

Do you think it’s legal to marry those cookies? Cause I totally want to.

November 19, 2012 04:35 AM
The Ninja Baker said...

Is this legal? An Oreo sandwiched between chocolate chippers are certainly iconic American standards, so why not celebrate Thanksgiving with the Picky Palete’s recipe?

November 19, 2012 05:01 AM
Snoopy said...

Are these the crunchy or chewy kind of cookies?

November 19, 2012 05:26 AM

now those look like my kind of cookie!

November 19, 2012 08:20 AM
Ingrid said...

I almost didn’t open this email because I thought it was about stuffing/dressing for your Thanksgiving bird and, well, frankly, that’s such a personal thing I wasn’t interested in how you put your touch on it. Then I remembered you’re a kitchen Goddess and thought “Who knows? I might learn something.” WOW did I ever “learn”!!! Never doubting you again… (also made the mistake of opening it in front of my 5 year old…now I’m on the hook to have these baked by the time he gets home from school!!!!)

I’ve made these, and let me tell you, they are AMAZING. Nothing better for a seriously divine treat.

Auntie Em said...

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Two of my favorite cookies in one treat. Ruh-roh. This is very, very bad…in such a delicious way!

And how cute would these be with the holiday Oreos when they tint the creme filling?!

November 19, 2012 08:56 AM
Tracie said...

Yum…that looks great! And being a super picky eater myself, I’ll have to check out that cookbook. Thanks!

November 19, 2012 09:21 AM
Rachel (Two Healthy Plates) said...

I made these once but had trouble with my cookie dough – it got all “melty” around the oreo and they ended up looking like UFOs- haha! Still tasted amazing though and I made half with peanut butter cookie dough =)

November 19, 2012 09:49 AM
Connie said...

Wow. This is ten kinds of sweet wrong, but soooo delish. :) I didn’t know you could stuff a choclate chip cookie. Yikes, my hips didn’t need to know that. :)

November 19, 2012 10:15 AM
JoAna said...

These look scrumdiddlyumptious! Your site always inspires me to try to news. Just when I thought chocolate chip cookies couldn’t get any better!

November 19, 2012 10:19 AM
Marian (Sweetopia) said...

Love your photos! I’m inspired to make them again! (Nom, nom, nom). ;-)

November 19, 2012 10:31 AM
Maria @ Inspiration Affirmation said...

OMG…my tummy is rumbling right now…I feel like I can taste these through the computer screen. These look completely delicious. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

November 19, 2012 11:02 AM
Sandra DeVaux said...

These look amazing!! Do you think one could use the mini oreo’s to make them a bit smaller for an assorted cookie tray.


November 19, 2012 11:34 AM
Amy H said...

YUMMY! These look delightfully decadent and so appropriate for these cold nights. :) But I also agree that they could be very dangerous, so best to make them for work. I’m sure my coworkers wouldn’t say no to such a delicious cookie.

November 19, 2012 11:48 AM
Laura said...

Oreo came out with some candy cane filled oreos recently. I would have eaten the whole bag if my boyfriend didn’t have any. I kind of want to make these with those! I wonder if I could use my Andes chip cookies (recipe on the bag of baking chips) with the candy cane oreos.. or if that’d be mint overload!

November 19, 2012 11:49 AM
Jenny said...

I have made these, they are TO DIE FOR!!!! (especially warm out of the oven!) Don’t second guess yourself about trying this recipe.

November 19, 2012 11:56 AM
Mandie @ Oh So Decadent said...

I love how you titled this post, I think it absolutely captures your love for baking, perfection! Also, I want these cookies. Scratch that. I NEED this cookies, right now. With extra ooey gooey chocolate.

November 19, 2012 11:58 AM

Thank you for the recipe. My daughter is sure to enjoy them. And a great big thanks you for the print recipe button, yeah!!!

Kelly said...

What! NOM NOM.

I feel you on wanting something not so fall-ish! My brother’s birthday party is today, which I’m thankful for on the baking front because it gave me a reason to make a regular old chocolate cake with white icing – I love cinnamon and pumpkin and spice cake, but sometimes you just need a bit of a palate cleanser ;-)

Marina said...

I made these last week! They were yummly! And if they get cold just nuke in the microwave for a few seconds so the Oreo can get gooey again..they were definitely a hit!

November 19, 2012 07:20 PM
Sosheil said...

I saw these cookies immediately so I bought the Oreos (double stuffed no less) and then moseyed over to the biscuit cold section and got a tube of Nestle chocolate chip cookie dough. That night I put them together like in the photos, baked, and oh my goodness! They were amazing! Now I want to try the listed cookie recipe as I have a whole unopened bag of Trader Joe chocolate chips. Wonder what it would taste like with NutterButters??? Yeah, babeeee!!! ;)

Lisa {Sweet 2 Eat Baking} said...

Holy moly, these look and sound amazing. I’ve got that book on my amazon wishlist and was hoping I’d get it for Christmas or buy it myself after Christmas but these are making me want to push that button!

So going on my to ‘make and bake’ list!

I love these!! I made them one day for my students and they still haven’t stopped talking about them =)

November 19, 2012 08:36 PM
Jayne said...

Oh wow. Mindblown! I didn’t know you can do that with Oreos! Might be a good welcome home treat for my brother.

By the way, how do you add that printable function to only your recipe? I’m a very new blogger and for the world of me, can’t figure that out!

Sylvia @ MyLovelyBites said...

I agree with who said it was half crazy/half genius. Crazy because they must be the most caloric cookies in existance and genius because one NEVER says no to Oreo, be it crumbles, stuffing, ice cream…

My hubby would absolutely adore these, not sure I can bear to inflict the extra pounds on him though! :P

Saw these and knew I had to make them for my husband – he loves chocolate chip cookies and oreos. He loves them! He also came up with the idea of seving them warm with ice cream and whipped cream from a can. Now that sounds like a great idea to me! Thank-you Bakerella all the way from England x

On Monday I purchased a poinsetta for my next door neighbor, she is 86 years old. While we were away this past weekend she received our mail and boxes. One box weighed over 35 pounds and she placed it in our home for us. She is a doll and a great cook and baker. We love to share recipes. She encourages me every day to enjoy that day to its fullest.
