Halloween Oreo Stuffed Cookies

Stuffed. Oreo. Cookies....... that's really all I have to say. And the fact that somehow, for some reason, the Halloween Oreos taste better than every other kind of Oreo that's out there (even the Easter and Christmas that are supposedly dyed the same). It's just different! These cookies are the size of softballs and turn out so soft on the inside. Forget the candy....this is all you need to fill your sweet tooth for Halloween!


2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbs. vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
18-20 Halloween Oreos
Halloween sprinkles

In an electric mixer, beat the sugars and butter together until a paste forms. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix. Slowly add the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda) until just incorporated. Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop out balls of cookie dough and place them on your work surface until all of the batter has been used up. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place one dough ball in your hand, an Oreo on top, and another dough ball on top of the Oreo. Press the top and bottom together gently and cover the edges of the cookie and roll sightly to form one large ball. Place on the prepared sheet. Continue that process until you have no more dough left. About 6-8 cookies can fit on the baking sheet at one time. Add the Halloween sprinkles on top and press down slightly. Bake for 12-15 minutes, remove from the pan and let cool on a wire rack.

I wasn't lying when I said these cookies are the size of your palm! This only makes about 18-20 cookies, but it is well worth the effort!
