About The Recipe

Is it too soon to share another cookie recipe?

I know we just shared our chewy peanut butter cookies last Wednesday, but we were testing this recipe over the weekend, and they just turned out so freaking good that we just had to get them up ASAP!

I mean, you all know by now that we are huge chocolate chip cookie fans in this house. But, what you might not have known is that we are all completely obsessed with Oreos!

Though, I will admit, it’s not really something we eat/buy very often. But, back in March, we shared our version of Homemade Oreos. Though, to get the most accurate cookie we could, we (of course) had to buy a pack of oreos!

And since then, we have pretty much kept a pack of oreos in our pantry. You know, for research purposes 😉

That, and we knew we wanted to make something with them!

Which is how we came up with this idea. To be completely honest, this recipe was originally more of something we were just kinda making for ourselves, but after one bite, my mom and I KNEW we had to share this today!

I mean, who DOESN’T love an extra large chocolate chip cookie? Especially when you add chunks of oreos!

Every bite is perfectly chewy, buttery, sweet, with pools of melted chocolate, accompanied by sweet chocolate-y crunch from the oreo cookies.

Equipment Needed

Ingredients

Full ingredient amounts and instructions can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  • Melted Unsalted Butter – For cookies, we like to use unsalted butter to control the amount of salt in the recipe! To make these cookies extra chewy, we opted to use melted butter.
  • Granulated Sugar – Adds more than just sweetness. By using granulated sugar, these cookies have just the slightest bit of crunch on the edges.
  • Brown Sugar – Keeps these cookies oh-so soft and chewy.
  • Large Eggs – You will need one large egg, plus an egg yolk for these cookies! Adding the extra yolk not only adds more liquid, but it also adds a delicious richness in every bite.
  • Vanilla Extract – A splash of vanilla adds just the right amount of flavor to these cookies!
  • All-Purpose Flour – Regular unbleached all-purpose flour gives these cookies the perfect structure and texture.
  • Baking Soda – Not only does baking soda provide just the right amount of rise to these cookies, but it also promotes spread and chewiness!
  • Salt – Since we used unsalted butter in this recipe, salt needs to be added! This cuts some of the sweetness, but also enhances the flavor in the cookies.
  • Chocolate Chips – For this recipe, you can use any chocolate chips that you like! We used semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Chopped Oreos – Large oreo chunks are the way to go with these cookies! It not only adds texture, but even more flavor.

How To Make Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step 1: Prepare dough

In a large bowl, combine butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Mix.

Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Whisk until well blended.

Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.

Fold in chocolate chips and Oreos.

Step 2: Bake

Use a 3 Tablespoon scoop to portion dough onto prepared pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until light golden brown.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can any oreo be used?

Definitely! Regular, double stuffed, golden, double chocolate…if the flavor goes well with chocolate, you can definitely add it into these cookies.

Can I make the cookie dough ahead of time?

Of course! Once the cookie dough is mixed, you can portion the dough and place on lined sheet pan. From there, freeze until hardened. Once the cookie dough balls are frozen solid, you can place in a freezer safe zip-top bag and freeze for 1-2 months.

Why are my cookies dry?

This could be caused by two things! Either the cookies were over-baked or the flour was over-measured. Both of these can cause your cookies can cause your cookies to be dry.

Why did my cookies not spread?

If the cookies didn’t spread while baking, this is due to too much flour being added to the cookie dough. Be sure to not add too much flour!

The best way to achieve this is using a cookie scoop, as the dough balls will already be in close-to-perfect round. As they bake, the cookies will spread into a perfect round shape!

Though, sometimes the cookies can get a little wonky-shaped while spreading, but no worries! You can still fix it.

Using a biscuit cutter that’s larger than the cookie, bump the cookies while they’re still very hot to fit inside the cutter and circle around them to create the perfect round shape!

Mix-in Ideas

The great thing about these cookies is that they are essentially just a chocolate chip cookie! Which means…they will go with pretty much anything and everything. Here’s a quick list of things that would taste extra delicious in these cookies!

  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Roasted Peanuts (for those who love peanut butter and oreos combo!)
  • Mini Marshmallows

How To Store

The best part about these cookies? They can be frozen for up to 3 months! Oh, yes, that’s right. After baking and cooling, you can place the baked cookies in an airtight freezer safe zip top bag and put in the freezer.

Though, if you’d like fresh baked cookies, you can actually freeze the cookie dough itself! Follow the directions all the way to portioning out the dough. From there, place a few inches apart on a lined sheet pan and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours, or until the cookie dough is frozen solid. From there, place the frozen cookie dough balls in a zip top bag and keep in the freezer for 1-2 months.

You can also keep these cookies in an airtight container or zip top bag on the counter for about a week!
