When I first saw this adorable cookie spatula I had no idea that it was also for a good cause. This limited edition “be a good cookie” spatula was created by OXO to raise awareness for the charity, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, founded in 2007 and devoted to raising money for pediatric cancer research through local bake sales.

Now on to these cookies. I made them for another round of a Bake Swap hosted by Amy (Second City Randomness) and Jess (Stylish, Stealthy & Healthy). These treats were sent to Leanna of The Skinny Architect. When I found a box of DQ Oreo Blizzard creme Oreos I knew they would be the perfect thing to incorporate into this bake swap. I have been eyeing the different versions of Oreo stuffed cookies all over the foodie blogosphere and it seemed time to finally try it out for myself. I am so glad that I did! They Oreo becomes softer after being baked inside the cookie and it’s a wonderful surprise inside of an already delicious cookie. They may not be the most glamorous looking cookies, but they make up for it in every bite.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
In a stand or electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.
Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Add to wet ingredients along with cocoa powder, and chocolate chips, slowly mixing until just combined. With a medium 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. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo 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!
