Cookies and Cream Cookies

I am back in gear for lots of baking the next few weeks. The only thing in my way is the heat.  Turning on the oven when its already hot is not fun, but the outcome is what drives me.  I only live a block from the beach which helps, but without that ocean breeze in my kitchen, its a sauna! Anyway, this last Friday was my boyfriends treat day at work.  I normally make something for to bring with him in the morning, but with a busy schedule on Thursday, i didn't have time to bake.  He brought doughnuts for his treat and there was an outrage!  No joke, people thought we had broken up or were fighting because I didn't bake something for him.  I had time to make some cookies Friday morning for him to share with his co-workers and that made everyone very happy.  I made these cookies and cream cookies that have Oreo's and Hersey's Cookies and Cream Drops in them.  I love the Cookies and Cream bars, but I had never tried the drops.  Its basically the same thing, just in a different shape.  My only thing was these drops are kinda big for a cookie, so next time I think ill chop them up or use a cookies and cream bar.  Overall, these cookies smell amazing, and taste delicious!!

P.S. Sorry for the terrible photos, I have temporary misplaced my memory card for my camera.  These are iPhone pictures in route for delivery.




Cookies and Cream Cookies - Adapted from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
Yield: 3 Dozen
Ingredients:
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
1-2 Cups Crushed Oreo's, I used mini
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 Package Hersey's Cookies and Cream Drops

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In the bowl of the your electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar with the paddle attachment.  Cream until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  
  3. Add the vanilla and mix.  Add the Oreo's.  I just added the mini Oreo's whole because they are already small.  If you use regular Oreo's you might want to chop them up a little bit.
  4. Add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition. 
  5. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and mix just until incorporate. 
  6. Add the cookies and cream drops and mix until evenly distributed.
  7. Scoop dough onto a prepared cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until light brown on top.
  8. Let the cookies cool, then ENJOY!!
