Cookies & Cream Cookies

Ah, cookies. Simple in concept, extraordinarily delicious when done correctly.

My apologies to cookie addicts everywhere, and people still rolling with your healthy New Year's resolutions. Look away! Run away! Hide under a table if you have to!

I've been cooking and/or baking healthy crap fare since New Year's, as well as keeping a food journal. Sugary baking has been kept to a minimum. That all changed today. I'll let you know, straight up, this is by no means a healthy recipe. However, the husband was clamoring for cookies so I felt obliged to oblige.

These monsters will really knock you off your diet. These smelled so good while they were baking that I was unable to resist a taste test after they came out of the oven. Now I'm sitting here, cookie in my tummy, a dopey grin on my face, realizing this cookie was totally worth it.

Sure, I had to knock chips and salsa off my "To-Eat" list today, but I think I can survive one day without em'. So grab a glass of milk, and settle down for a splurge :)

Ingredients (makes 18 cookies):

1/2 cup unsalted butter
6 tbsp granulated sugar
6 tbsp brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
10-12 Oreo's, crushed


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray, and set aside.
2. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar, until pale and creamy (2-3 minutes). Add egg, mix well. Add vanilla mix well.
3. In a separate large bowl, combine flour through salt. Whisk together. Add dry ingredients to the wet, mix until combined.
4. Fold in crushed Oreo's.
5. Drop 2 tbsp of dough at a time on the cookie sheet, placing about 2 inches apart or 6 cookies to a cookie sheet.
6. Bake in preheated oven 8-10 minutes, or just until edges are golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes. Remove cookies to a cooling rack, cool completely before storage.
