Oh boy!

More like dough boy! I made these babies for my visiting teachees last night and my oh my they are rich and fabulous! When I told David about a the recipe he said he'd rather just have an oreo or a chocolate chip cookie. WHAT? Sometimes I don't even know who he is?!? Anyway that suggestion was quickly overruled and my beloved cookies were fresh out of the oven! Gotta love that picky-palate...I swear every kid wishes she was their mom.  BTW these cookies are gigantic...and a little sticky to work with but I somehow persevered! 

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
1 Cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla
3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 bag Oreo Cookies, I used the double stuff :)
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.   In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined.  Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
2.  In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda.  Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.  Using a 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 Cookie.  Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo Cookie 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!
Makes about 2 dozen VERY LARGE Cookies :)
