Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2013
Oreo Cookie Meltaways are marvelous. What’s not to love about a cookie with Oreos in it? These melt-in-your-mouth sugar-type cookies stuffed with Oreo cookie chunks are what makes up Oreo Cookie Meltaways. They are sweet, rich, chocolatey, and have wonderful texture.
Not only are these cookies scrumptious, they are fairly quick and easy to make, too. You can have a batch of these ready in about 15 minutes. I cut each Oreo cookie in eighths rather than crushing the cookies before adding them to the cookie dough. This means there were larger chunks of Oreos in the cookies rather than just a lot of crumbs. I believe the texture was more delicious this way.
I wanted to make a cookie for Christmas using Oreos and decided to pull out a recipe I’ve used before from a friend, but instead of using chocolate chips or Heath English toffee bits, I used Oreo cookies instead. The results were just as spectacular! The creamy Oreo filling is just delightful in this recipe. If you’re looking for a great recipe for holiday baking this year, then give these cookies a try.
Oreo Cookie Meltaways are wonderful.
Take a platter of Oreo Cookie Meltaways to your office holiday parties and they will be consumed in no time.
Here’s a bucket of these tasty treats.
Here’s what I did.
Soften butter. Add it with oil to a large mixing bowl. I was making about 5 batches of this recipe so my amounts are going to be much larger than a normal batch.
Add eggs and vanilla.
Add cream of tartar, salt, baking soda, sugar and powdered sugar.
Mix with an electric mixer to combine.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Cut Oreos in eighths. Add to mixture.
Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll mixture into balls and place on prepared baking sheets.
Bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes or until done. Cool completely.
Here’s the inside of one of the cookies. Each Oreo Cookie Meltaway is filled with lots of Oreos. Yum.
Chocolate lovers and Oreo Cookie lovers will love these addictive cookies. Your family will love digging into these amazing cookies.
Here’s the recipe.
