Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies

I procrastinate from my homework the best when I’m baking. Seriously. Instead of writing a 1000 word paper, I browse through my bookmarks on my computer and decide what I want to bake. After figuring out my next culinary mission, I get right to it and start mixing my little heart away. Once everything is set and cooled, I figure, “Well… I already have all my materials out, why not bake something else?” This is where the process starts all over again; It’s like a never-ending circle of baking that will, in turn, doom my academic career.

Were these cookies worth it? Totally. The concept of a cookie in a cookie is just genius. Kind of like cookie dough in cookie dough. Wait, what? Is that even possible? Anyways, I made these cookies into little itty-bitty baby ones because I wanted bite sized treats. That resulted in me eating a million cookies instead of one. Oops. They’re full of flavor (taste just like cookies n’ cream ice cream, really) and the oreo texture in it is wonderful! They’re also chewy, not crumbly. I subbed baking powder for baking soda because I didn’t have any on hand, which is why my cookies are a bit puffy than normal. That actually works even better for mini cookies!

    I’m the same way! These days I have definitive spurts. Yesterday, for example, I made lemon curd, blueberry cupcakes with lemon zest, and then whipped together some pizza dough on top of making dinner for myself. I spend my “days” of research looking up recipes for later. It’s terrible and my lovehandles hate it! I love the idea of a cookie mailing. I wish this poor med student could afford it! Btw these cookies look genius.

    Cookie-within-a-cookie! I love it!

    I’m rather sad I can’t partake in your cookie mailing list (I live in Canada). If you ever start shipping to your northern neighbours, I would be suuuuper excited!! I totally understand why it’s not that practical, though.

    You and I are so alike it’s crazy. I swear, the day before an exam, I always feel the need to bake both a loaf of bread and a cake. It’s insane. And will lead to my demise. But eh, what can you do.

    Your idea to start a cookie mailing list is awesome! What a great way to make money. If you’re going to be bakign anyway, might as well!

    These cookies are amazing!

    These cookies look fantastic (I especially like that you took a bite out of one for a picture!) I’m putting the recipe on my list of things-to-try :-)

    Long time reader, first time commenter. I love your blog and I’m pretty sure I’ve bookmarked just about every recipe you’ve posted. PS I remember in a post a while back you said you visited a friend at BYU. Well I went there too! So, yay.
    Ok, I am making these tonight! I can’t wait to try them! And I like how puffy yours are so I’m going to do the powder for soda sub as well. Thanks for this recipe!

  6. says

    i was just introduced to your blog and all i can say is OH. MY. GOODNESS. i’ve shamelessly went through your posts all the way back to januaray! haha. and it took everything i had not to skip class and make these oreo cookies! i absolutely love all your recipes and i cannot wait to try them out!!

  7. says

    great idea! I hope you keep doing the cookie mailing list. I would like to buy a few months worth for a friend’s birthday. But her birthday isn’t until August!

    your cookies all look amazing! i have bookmarked tons!

  8. says

    I remember asking you over FB a while back if you were doing your mailing list ever again, I gotta say.. as soon as I realized you were doing it again, I was effing STOKED!! I use a lot of your recipes and so you have no idea how amazing it is that I have a chance to eat them, baked by the infamous baker queen hahaha.

    I don’t know how you would like to set up payments, if I should send out some $$ every month or if there’s a way to just automate it haha, or if you prefer it all in advance, just let me know! <333

    Isn’t procrastinating by baking the BEST THING ever?! I do the exact same thing. Anyway, when I get home from the library tonight, I’m totally making these. But with Tagalongs, since I don’t have any Oreos in the hizouse. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

    This recipe rocks! I visited my friend at Penn State this weekend and made these for her! I used Newmans Own Mint Oreos instead of normal ones.. made these awesome cookies incredible! They were a hit!

  11. Marie says

    I made this today. It tasted really good. I love the Oreos. But mine turned out flat. My oven decided to be stupid today and the temp was much lower than it should be. It was still good though.

  12. Amanda says

    Made these so many times already I’ve practically got it memorized!! ;) I have two little brothers who have been so happy with this amazing recipe. Thank You So Much!!

  13. says

    I just discovered your blog on foodgawker. Love it!

    Question: How many grams is one stick of butter? I never know! I want to make these cookies next weekend. :)

  14. Mandy says

    I stumbled upon your blog, found this recipe, and immediately made these cookies…. but with a twist. I used peanut butter oreos and added about 2 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter! Awesome! Thanks for the recipe :)

  15. says

    Made these last night…wow! So easy, so good, perfect level of chewiness, even on the second day! Something a little more special than your average chocolate chip. Thank you!

  16. Ellen says

    I made these today and i’m eating one now. they are DELICIOUS. mine didn’t look like the picture but they taste just fine. thanks!

  17. says

    First off, I would like to say how similar we are that we both procrastinate so much when we think up recipes. I do this all the time when I just can’t pay attention in biology. Second, your blog is beautiful and the pictures you take are absolutely perfect. And third, I used this recipe on my blog but instead of using chocolate chips, I substituted white chocolate chips and I added oreo instant pudding mix to the batter and my best friend and boyfriend swear by those cookies. Thank you for the inspiration and such a great recipe!!!

  18. says

    I made these today. I expected the cookies to be dark like your pictures. Unfortunately they looked like normal chocolate chip cookies. The only difference was that they had Oreo pieces inside of them. How did you make yours dark? I followed the recipe and crushed 11 Oreos into small pieces.

  19. says

    I am a terrible cook, baker, even take-out orderer… But you have some recipes I will definitely try. And hopefully not mangle beyond recognition. Awesome site!

    For some reason my cookies turned out like pancakes and were stuck to the pan; the pan is in the trash. :( no cookies for my hubby and I! :(

  21. Amanda B says

    These were THE greatest cookies I have ever baked. My first round of cookies were too dark so I only put them in for 7 minutes instead of 10 (It is probably because of my oven).

    Just finished baking these, so delicious! I tried another recipe before and they came out kind of dry.. these are perfect! My stomach is full and happy :) Thank you for sharing!

  23. Danielle says

    All I have to say is ‘WOW’ but not solely because of the recipe, but because of your first sentence I procrastinate from my homework the best when I’m baking.’ This is 100% me I do exactly the same thing! My love for baking began because of my hate for writing papers. I now find baking relaxing and whenever I’m stress I turn to my bookmarks. Thanks for adding one to my list! Happy Procrastination Baking!

    I made these last year for christmas cookies, and they were good, but I think I baked them for just a little too long. Maybe less bake time is better. Very yummy recipe though, and visually appealing as well.

  25. Marie Kiley says

    I have made these before for a family party and everyone loved them! Just made them again using whole wheat flour and they are just as good! I pinned them on pinterest (: Delicious, thank you so much!!

    I live in an all-girl dormitory, and when we found this recipe we had this crazy baking party and all probably gained 10 pounds! Thank you so much for the recipe; we all had so much fun with it, and we all agreed they were even better than the favorite local bakery that we like to spend all of our money at.

    Looking forward to trying these. Does it call for self rising flour or all purpose & how many does this recipe make?

    8 minutes was perfect for baking time. Any more and they would have been overdone. These are amazing amazing, amazing! Thankyou for sharing this recipe! My husband loves them!

    From the photo, it’s clear you’re not actually eating all of these baked goods…unless you’re among the super-lucky with lightning fast metabolisms. Question: where did you get that bathing suit? It’s adorable and I’ve been looking for one exactly like it for years.

    • says

      Lol I always try and give my baked goods away! There’s always somebody that’ll eat them. :) I got the bathing suit from Victoria’s Secret a couple of months ago

  30. Laurie says

    I’m wondering what size the oreo cookies should be broken into? Large pieces, medium, crushed etc? Thanks!

  31. Yisrayah says

    i really love this recipe, i tried it late one night a couple of years ago, and since then it has been the chocolate chip cookie i use every time.

  32. em says

    We just tried to make these and they taste absolutely fantastic but they have come out really flat! what have we done wrong!? is your oven fan-forced or normal? so sad that they aren’t nice and fluffy like yours!

  33. says

    So I’m definitely going to be making these! These are a combination of my two favorite cookies. Have you ever thought of doing this with Reese’s?

  34. olivia says

    just made these today- amazing!! and so easy! would love to try these again with different cookies or candies! thanks!!

    After making double batches of these three times, I felt you should know these are the absolute best cookies my husband and I have ever had! We’re a young couple so my cooking experience isn’t vast (the poor guy has suffered through many not-quite-awesome cookies), but these were perfect all three times. they came out a little dry, which made them excellent for dunking in coffee or tea.

    our budget is limited and things like oreos are luxuries, so we substituted 1/3 cup of cocoa for them instead. i figured 1/3 cup is about how much cookie dust you’d get from grinding 22 oreos (double batch) in a mortar. The first time I swirled the cocoa in last, the next two I mixed it in with the dry ingredients. Both tasted equally great.

    I’d definitely recommend cocoa to anyone else finding themselves without oreos for one reason or another.
