Wow, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? First there was Passover, and I posted fewer recipes than usual. Then came my sister’s engagement, pretty soon after passover, and I spent every spare moment making all kinds of outrageously amazing and gorgeous treats for the party.
I will be sharing some of those treats with you folks, but first, I am going to share these simple cookies. I made them just before the party, after I panicked that there were no plain and simple cookies for folks who didn’t want my more extravagant treats.
I’m not really sure what to say about these cookies. Not because they aren’t amazing, because they are. I’ve made them numerous times. Each time, they were demolished eagerly. These cookies don’t call for all sorts of fancy ingredients. They don’t require any fancy steps. They are simply chocolate-y goodness, simple as that.
Wondering why I haven’t posted this recipe yet, even though I first made these cookies about 9 months ago? Simple. They’ve never made it long enough to be photographed.
Yes. They really are that good.
Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies
Adapted slightly from Two Peas and Their Pod
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped Oreo cookies
3/4 cup white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped semi-sweet chocolate
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease or line a cookie sheet. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter/margarine, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until combined.
Slowly add the flour and cocoa mixture into the mixer and stir until just combined. Stir in the chopped Oreos, white and dark chocolate chips until thoroughly distributed.
Scoop the dough with a medium cookie scoop onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Leave cookies on cookie sheet for a couple of minutes to cool before removing them.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you come back soon- I have loads of awesome goodies to show off. Miriam
