Cookie 21 of 52

Today would be my Dad’s 70th birthday, so I thought it only fitting to do a cookie that reminded me of one of our favorite past times.  Oreo’s!

Eating Oreo's and discussing life.
Eating Oreo’s and discussing life.
I am pretty sure my sweet tooth comes from this man.  Every visit included dessert of some kind, and the most common was Oreo’s and a glass of milk.  We would sit and dunk and chat.  So every year on his birthday, my brother and I buy a package and dunk in Dad’s honor.   This year, I am adding my own personal twist.

My girl Nahanny taught me how to make these a few years ago, and since I haven’t made them since getting Velma, they will count towards my fifty-two.

These are so simple!  I used Cookie #13 as my base, and with a medium cookie-scoop, scooped all the dough into cookie balls.

Here’s where I improvised a little ~ based on previous experience, these cookies can be a little overwhelming – three cookies in one (top, Oreo, bottom).  Even I, as an avid cookie eater, could usually only eat half of one at a time.  What a tragedy!  I changed it up a little so you can enjoy a whole cookie without the sugar coma.  So, I used mini Oreo’s, and split the cookie dough balls I just made open to insert the baby Oreo.  

 Worked great!  A normal sized cookie with a surprise inside.  As usual, I refrigerated the dough for 24 hours, and baked as directed.  They are perfect!

Have you made these before?  What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
