To the untrained eye, these may just look like your standard peanut butter cookie. Take a bite and you will find, however, that there is a treat inside.
Ta dah!!! Yes, that's right. It's a peanut butter cookie stuffed with an Oreo. I don't mess around, yo!
I saw this idea on the internet ages ago, although I believe they were made with a chocolate chip cookie on the outside. I've been wanting to make them ever since, but got busy with other things. Until yesterday.
I decided that enough was enough - I was going to make these cookies. Unfortunately, chocolate chips are near impossible to find here. I have been known to chop chocolate bars into tiny pieces for makeshift chips, but I thought that they would be just as good with peanut butter. Although I can't compare, they were pretty good.
I used the Mrs. Field's Peanut Butter cookie recipe found online and then your standard Oreo. The recipe said to bake 18-20 minutes, but they ended up a tad crispier than I would have liked. I would have cooked the next tray for a bit less time, but our Oreos only come with 18 in a pack. Bummer. The recipe, however, made about a million more regular cookies that were sufficiently chewy (but were only baked for 11 minutes).
Making this cookie got me thinking, could this be the beginning of a cookie turducken?
