satiating my sweet tooth

When my mom was here the week after Cora was born, she decided to make some chocolate chip cookies for us. She had also brought a bag of Oreos that she had bought on a whim a few days earlier and had in her car. I had seen something on Pinterest a few weeks earlier that had piqued my interest, and I knew this was my time to try it!

Yes, a chocolate chip cookie with an Oreo stuffed inside!

I've had too many duds with Pinterest recipes, so I make sure to read through lots of comments before attempting stuff now.  A lot of people had an issue with all the cookie dough sliding off the top, resulting in a cookie pancake with an Oreo on top.  One person suggested just pushing it in a muffin tin to lock the sides in, so I went with it!  I also only wanted to make about 6 of them, so this worked well to limit it.

My version:
They look like muffins, but they're all cookie!  (And they are HUGE.)
Gooey and yummy!  Make sure you have a glass a milk handy.
If I made these again, I would definitely use the Double Stuf Oreos.  However, eating just one of these was the equivalent to eating 3 or 4 cookies at once.  As much as I loved them, they totally gave me a stomachache!
