Black and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last weekend, we held our annual winter party. This year, the theme was "Ready to Rock" and everyone came in their favorite band's t-shirt. We set up our Rock Band instruments for xBox and the party was quite a success. To keep everyone satisfied, we ordered pizza and I cooked up a bunch of snacks. One of the dessert items were Black and White Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I found the recipe a couple weeks ago on The Hungry Mouse. If you click over to her post, you'll see the cookies I made are much darker than hers. I'm not sure where I went wrong, but the cookies still turned out great. I think I may have used too many oreos (which isn't necessarily a bad thing!).

Black and White Chocolate Chip Cookies
originally from The Hungry Mouse blog


11 Tbls. butter (that’s 2/3 of a cup)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
20 Oreos (or other creme-filled chocolate cookies)

About a half an hour before baking, take out the butter and let it soften up.

Place the oreos in a gallon sized zip top bag and smash the cookies into small pieces with a rolling pin. When finished, there should be about 2 cups of crushed oreo. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper and set aside.

Combine the white and brown sugar in the mixer bowl. Add the vanilla extract. Toss in the egg and softened butter. Using the paddle beater, beat on medium-high for a minute until ingredients come together.

Add the flour, baking soda and salt to the bowl and beat on medium-high until the dry ingredients are well combined with the wet, scraping the sides of the bowl when necessary.

Add the chocolate chips. Once the chips are mixed in, add the oreos. Beat on medium-high until well combined.

Drop spoon sized balls of dough onto the cookie sheets, spacing them out evenly. Bake for about 13 minutes at 350 degrees (NOTE: I only baked mine for 10 minutes and they came out perfect) Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool.

Servings: About 2 dozen

These cookies are really good. They are sort of crunchy. Just like a regular oreo, though go great with a glass of milk. Everyone at the party loved them.
