Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies with a WINNER!

Hey guys! I hope you're having a super fun extra long weekend. Last year on Memorial Day, I visited the cemetery with Paisley. Seeing my free spirited daughter running without a care in the world, around graves that were decorated with flags, really put Memorial Day into perspective for me.
We have so much to be thankful for, don't we? Let's remember those men and women, who helped make our freedom possible.
So....changing subjects now......
Today I'm sharing a cookie recipe with you all, that my husband claims as his absolute favorite. What's better than the perfect chocolate chip cookie, with a soft and chewy Oreo baked on the inside? Not much!

About a week ago, I started the South Beach diet. I know, I've said that a lot, here on the blog. I guess that's just what happens when you've had 3 babies in 4 years---you always fall back to the good old South Beach, because it works.

So, what I'm saying is that I won't be eating any of these in the near future, but if you're looking for a total splurge recipe, this one is good, really good. Make them and enjoy them for me, won't you?

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. mini chocolate chips
12 Oreos

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.

3. Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in mini chocolate chips.

4. Chill the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes. After the dough is chilled, scoop a 2 inch sized clump into your hand and flatten it out like a pancake. Lay the Oreo on top of the dough and then shape the dough around the Oreo, until the Oreo is completely hidden. The cookies will be large so, put only 4-6 on each baking sheet.  Continue to chill the dough in between batches of cookies. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until barely golden brown, just around the edges.

5. Let cool on the sheet, for a minute or two and then transfer to a wire rack.
Makes 12 large Oreo Stuffed Cookies.
Happy Memorial Day!
