I found a new love. It doens’t have zero calories and it’s probably not very healthy for me, but it is delicious. (I had the Truvia sweetener commercial jingle stuck on my head, hence the babble about zero calories).
I confess, I’ve never loved eating oreos by themselves. I know I’m in the minority. But I love, love cookies and cream desserts. Cookies and cream ice cream, cookies and cream ice cream cake, oreo cupcakes with cookies and cream frosting, are just some of my favorite cookies and cream creations.
And now I add these cookies and cream cookies to my list. I had been thinking of trying my hand at creating a cookies and cream cookie for a while. Before I got a chance to try it, I saw this recipe on Sing For Your Supper, and just had to try it out.
These cookies came out even better than I had imagined. Like cookies n’ cream ice cream–except in a cookie form. The recipe was pretty easy to follow. I did some minor tweaks with the ingredients and also some tweaks with the method of mixing these cookies. I wanted the oreos to be really spread into the batter so instead of just stirring them in, I crushed the cookies pretty finely and then used the stand mixer to incorporate it and mix it into the dough. As a result, my cookies didn’t spread out as much, but the cookies and cream is very well incorporated all throughout the cookie. They also look a lot darker since the chocolate cookie crumbs are mixed thoroughly into the dough.
They came out looking more like cookies and cream drop cookies, but the taste was amazing: soft, sweet, creamy, chocolate cookie chunks. I couldn’t stop eating these.
