Oreo Overload Cookie Sandwiches - Chewy cookies infused with Oreo Crumbs and slathered with a Cookies n Cream filling!

I made these cookies on Friday with the full intention of bringing them over to a friend’s yesterday.  Apparently I made the mistake of sharing a sample cookie with Matt because he almost lost it when I told him I was going to do that.  For a man who lives in a world where there are ALWAYS cookies around (test recipes and bakery leftovers), this was pretty major.  Although, I can’t say I’m surprised since he absolutely adores Oreos and this recipe pretty much takes that flavor to full blast.

The cookie dough and the frosting are both infused with Oreo flavor by adding the ground cookies into both components. The only thing I can imagine that might be better is if I make the cookies again and use them to sandwich cookies n cream ice cream.  Now we are really talking!

Oreo Infused Chewy Cookies

Ingredients:
165 grams / 5 7/8 ounces (~1 1/4 cup) all-purpose flour
125 grams / 4 3/8 ounces (~1 cup) finely ground Oreo crumbs (about 11 cookies)
3 grams (1/2 teaspoon) baking soda
2 grams (1/2 teaspoon) salt
170 grams / 6 ounces (3/4 cup / 1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
105 grams / 3 ¾ ounces (~1/2) cup granulated sugar
120 grams / 4 1/4 ounces (~1/2 cup) packed light brown sugar
50 grams / 1.75 (1 whole large) egg at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350; line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside
Whisk flour, Oreo crumbs, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on high speed until light and fluffy
Beat in egg and vanilla on medium speed just until combined
Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add dry ingredients but do not overmix; use a spatula to make sure all cookie batter is combined
Use a medium cookie dough scoop or tablespoon to make cookie dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (about 1 1/2 tablespoons each)
Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes or until edges have slightly darkened and centers appear set
Allow cookies to cool on a cooling rack; once cool, match each cookie with a second cookie of same size to make the cookie sandwiches and prepare buttercream

Cookies ‘n Cream Buttercream:

Ingredients:
85 grams / 3 ounces (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
57 grams / 2 ounces regular or light cream cheese
130 grams / 4 5/8 ounces (1 cup) powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 grams / 5/8 ounces (~2 tablespoons) finely ground Oreo crumbs (~1-2 cookies)

Directions:
Beat butter and cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment on high speed for several minutes until butter is light and creamy
Add powdered sugar and vanilla and mix on low speed until combined then increase speed of mixer to medium-high and beat for several minutes until frosting is light and fluffy
Stir in Oreo crumbs until evenly distributed
Spread or pipe frosting onto bottom of half of the cookie sandwiches, about 1 1/2 tablespoons each; lightly press remaining cookies down onto frosting to create sandwiches

Note: Store cookies in an airtight container up to four days (eat within two for best texture).  Can be frozen up to one month.

    I love that your recipes are in weights :)

      I figure since that is how I bake it makes sense to have that for everyone else, too! It always feels so much easier to me.

    I used cup measurements in America but here in Greece it’s mostly by weights. Using both ways sure helps. Thank you. Also what a dreamily yummy way to get the flavor of Oreo’s in one bite. :D

      I’m so glad the weight measurements are helpful! That is how I bake now and know that so many other people do, too. Plus, it is so much more accurate!

    I highly suspect the.boy would have a similar reaction. As if he is cookie deprived or something!? Sheesh. :) However, look at these. Can you blame him?
