flat and chewy white chocolate chip oreo cookies - the best cookies I've ever had


If you like white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, but you pick out the nuts, this cookie is the cookie for you. To put this in perspective, these are like a more exotic, chewier, flatter, more yummy chocolate chip cookie. The kids will love these, the neighbors will love these, the goldfish will love these, but most importantly, you'll love these because they are so easy!


Out of all of the reasons why this cookie is "the best cookie I've ever had", there is one superior reason why. That is, this cookie has cookies inside each cookie. You're looking at the Chow Creations patented (not really) oreos baked into a cookie cookie making method. Let's get into that.





Preparation
1. As always, when you're baking something as easy as a cookie, the first step is to preheat your oven. 350F.


2. Cream together the butter and white and brown sugars until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. After the vanilla, switch to a spatula so avoid over mixing the batter and making the cookies tough.



3. To be completely honest, I'm not sure why the Chow household even has this next step in our patented (not really) oreos baked into a cookie cookies making method, but our cookies come out fantastic every time so I do it just for good measures. Dissolve baking soda in a teaspoon or so of hot water. Add to the batter along with salt. 


4. Now stir in the dry ingredients, these include the flour, chocolate chips, and oreo crumbs. 


Using a normal sized ice cream scoop, dollop six, that's six only, cookies onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. The first batch which this picture was taken from shows me unaware of the spreading capabilities of these cookies. Do as I say, not as I did. If your kids are like me, and like to watch the cookies bake in the oven, I suggest having them see these suckers spread. 


5. Bake for 11-12 minutes on the middle rack, or until the edges are golden brown and the tops look dry. Keep in mind that when they first come out they will be soft to the touch, but as they cool they will firm up significantly. 


6. I'm not sure why I'm adding this as a step, but I suggest eating this slightly warm but cool enough to handle. Even superior cookies with oreo cookies baked into the cookie play well with a glass of cold milk so do the cookie justice. 


Now you know how to make the easiest, flattest, chewiest cookies on the interweb. Please like and comment cause that helps us a lot. And as always, 

Chow!
