These cookies are loaded with 3 cups of chopped oreos! Some of the best oreo cookies or cookies & cream cookies we’ve tried! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!

Let’s take our favorite cookie and put it INSIDE cookies!!

And that’s how oreo cookies were born.

This week has been so dreary. I feel like I never realize how much I need the sun until it hides for a couple of days.

I feel more productive when the sun is out, plus I rely heavily on the sun and natural light to take pictures of each recipe, so if there’s no sun, there are no photos happening.

And when I’m not taking pictures, I’m usually in my office doing computer work and my body’s natural response is to want to take a nap! So I sure hope the sun shows it’s bright face soon, I need it!!

Since Ryan started his new job, we have learned that his co-workers are excellent recipe tasters. There are about 80 people in his hallway and it seems like they really like dessert. I can’t blame them :)

Ryan says that the treats usually don’t make it past lunch time. And he’s also told me that certain coworkers will e-mail a few other coworkers whenever they see him bring goodies so they can get to them before they disappear. I imagine it like this “Email Alert! Drop everything, Beth sent dessert, proceed to the lounge ASAP!”

I wasn’t too sure how these cookies would go over.. I mean, it’s a cookie inside a cookie, I can see kids REALLY liking them, but sometimes I think adults have a more sophisticated palate.

Well that’s a big misconception! Every single cookie was eaten. I think adults like sweet things just as much as kids.

These oreo cookies have 3 cups of chopped oreos inside them, plus I added larger oreo pieces to the tops of each cookie for presentation.

They are crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, and exploding with oreos!
