This week’s recipe is truly a treat!  As you may have seen, earlier in the year I was featured on the Geek in the City radio show, hosted by my good friend Sharon Vaknin.    Not only does Sharon host her very own weekly podcast, but she also has a weekly cooking show on her blog!

One of my all-time-favorite recipes shown by Sharon is for oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies.  Watch the video below to see how it’s done, or see the recipe below.  Enjoy!

Recipe (via):
Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
-Picky Palate

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag Oreo Cookies

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

2. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo Cookie. Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo Cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo Cookie is enclosed with dough.  Flatten out a bit. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE Cookies
