Tums, Anyone?




I whipped up a batch of what are easily the most ginorm-o cookies I have ever made in my entire lifetime, and, YEEHAW!, are they hunkin' huge--practically a three-course meal, if you ask me. They almost need a room all to themselves. With a private entrance. And a bump-out dining area. And a big, spacious La-Z-Boy for lounging, cuz these cookies are settling in for a long, long visit.




Yes. That is a DoubleStuf Oreo squished
in the middle.





That DoubleStuf Oreo is now hermetically sealed inside bunches of sugar, and other good stuff.





I swear, I may have heard my Silpat groan
under the weight.




Is it just me, or does anyone else see Star Wars
stormtrooper helmets here?




My brave, brave boy. I do pay him well.




"You think I'm going to eat all of it? At one sitting? You don't pay me that well."





Jeepers!





What a perfect little perch for the
stormtrooper helmets!




Add a splash of color with an adorable bow . . .




. . . add a hokey homemade card that unfortunately dials back the cuteness factor just a bit, and I'm all set to hoist these off onto my sweet, unsuspecting friend; she's not going to know what hit her. :D




Here are all of the delicious and devilish details (or you could go with calling them the "angelic" details, depending upon whether you think these are sinful or heavenly--your hips, your call on that one, people):


Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookie Sandwich

2 sticks softened butter

3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar

1 Cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 Tablespoon pure vanilla

3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

10 oz bag chocolate chips

1 bag Oreo cookies, I used the Doublestuf


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.


2. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo cookie. Take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo cookie is enclosed with dough. Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.


Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy! Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE cookies.





What?
These?
Oh, these.
Well, uh, gee. Wellllllllllll . . . .
Well, okay. If you must know, we decided we needed to keep a few of these three-course meals for ourselves to serve as part of our food storage. You know, in case of a dire emergency and all that stuff. Just trying to follow the prophet. (Or what have you, ahem.)
