cookies and cream cookies

I love a lot of what I make {if I don't love it, I don't post about it :)} but these cookies were the best things EVER.

They are my new go-to cookie.  Everyone needs a go-to cookie.  I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe that I found it a few years ago in Cooking Light magazine and used crushed oreos instead of chocolate chips.


I love Oreos.  They might be little processed bits of sugar and who knows what else, but they are justsofreakinggood.  I also really love the Trader Joe's version JoJo's.  The Trader Joe's version has a really nice vanilla flavor that it just a little different and so tasty.  They also make a mint version around the holidays....which means, come December,  mint cookies and cream cookies will be my new favorite holiday cookie.

If you love Oreos or JoJo's or any version you must make this recipe.  I ate at least ten cookies in one day.  I could.not.stop.

cookies and cream cookies {makes about 3 and a half dozen}
-2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 cup packed brown sugar
-3/4 cup white sugar
-1/2 cup butter (softened or left at room temp for a few hours)
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-2 large egg whites
-4-6 crushed oreo cookies {or a similar cookie}

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt and stir with a whisk.  Set aside.
3. Put sugars and butter in a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer at medium speed until well combined.  Add vanilla extract and egg whites and beat for another minute.  Add flour mixture and beat until just combined.  Lastly, mix in the oreos.
4. This dough will be slightly crumbly, so roll into balls about 1"-1 /2" in diameter and press onto baking sheets that have been coated with cooking spray {or parchment paper}.  

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool on pans for two minutes and then transfer them to wire racks or a plate in order to cool completely.

  2. Sounds delicious! I love Oreos too-- it's one of the few processed foods that I splurge on once in a while. Milk and oreos? Can't go wrong. I'll definitely have to try these.

    1. I know, I rarely eat a lot of processed foods but I am never giving up oreos :). I think the Trader Joe's brand might be slightly less processed but they still aren't a "whole" food. I have never been a milk drinking but oreos on ice cream is my FAVE.

  3. love this!

    also, you get cooking light? i kind of have a magazine crush on them. ha

  4. I would eat 10 too. They look so good. Love me some oreos!!

  5. Yummy! Great recipe and I love your styling. x
