The Case of the Disappearing Oreo

My daughter, home from school for a long weekend, suggested we bake these Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.  An interesting experiment. The idea was dreamed up by Jenny of the Picky Palate and has been making the rounds on food blogs the last 2 months. We had to see it for ourselves.

I can think of sooooo many things I'd rather imbed in chocolate chip cookies though:

* a glob of nut butter

* more chocolate

* a tart fruit (dried sour cherries, home-made apricot conserve, marmelade)

with a store-bought one?  That's what I'd like to know!  LOL  I'm with ya on this one, David.  I generally make chocolate chip oatmeal cookies - with chopped nuts, too.

YUM!  (Oh dear... I think I'm going to have to make some now!)

It seems that the reaction to this cookie is either "why???" or ""why not - can't wait to try it." Sort of reminds me of cilantro. People either love it or hate it. I must say, after having made them, I will not be repeating this, but I'm glad I tried it. They were fun to make and photograph and gave me a good laugh!

Cool looking insides though!  Sort of like an UFO.

Ha ha Mini, forgot about twisting off the top and licking out the filling. Impossible with this version.

I saw this too.  A friend posted the idea on Facebook.  My thought was (and I am committing female sacrilege when I admit I prefer vanilla over chocolate any day) to put a Golden Oreo inside an oatmeal scotchie cookie.  Then you can claim it is a "healthly" cookie because you are eating oatmeal!

Love the addition of oatmeal for a healthy version! When I was pregnant I used to justify eating milk chocolate covered almonds as both almonds and milk have calcium!
