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 are melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies for sure. Then they’re stuffed with Oreo cookie chunks. They are sweet, rich, decadent, 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. I 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.
I first published this recipe in December 2013. The cookies looked okay, but I thought they were do for some new pictures. I recently remade this recipe (December 2018) for our mini Christmas Cookie Extravaganza. This time I made them much larger and really liked the way they turned out.
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 stack of these tasty treats.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Soften butter. Add powdered sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, eggs, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
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 heavy metal spoon to combine.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Scoop dough in one-quarter cup amounts and place about three inches apart on greased baking sheets.
Bake at 350 for about 15-17 minutes or until done. Cool completely.
Oreo Cookie Meltaways are marvelous for tailgating parties.
