    Oreo Stuffed Cookies
    Ingredients
    • 16 oreos
    • 1cup creamy peanut butter
    • 1/2cup butter, softened
    • 1cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/2cup white sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 1/2cups flour
    • sea salt
    Instructions
    1. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter, peanut butter and sugars until very creamy, about 2 minutes. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
    2. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder, baking soda and flour. Mix dry ingredients into peanut butter until just combined – don’t overmix!
    3. Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop a ball of cookie dough and place it on the top of the Oreo cookie. Take a second scoop of dough and place it on the bottom of the Oreo. Seal edges of the cookie dough together around the cookie so the Oreo is encased in the center of the peanut butter dough ball. Place cookies onto a parchment or nonstick mat lined baking sheet 3 inches apart and sprinkle with sea salt.
    4. Cover baking sheet with plastic wrap and chill for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator or for 15-30 minutes in the freezer. If making ahead, keep tightly covered dough in the refrigerator up to 24 hours.
    5. Bake cookies at 350 degrees F 10-12 minutes, depending on desired “softness.”* Let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
    Recipe Notes

    *My cookies are very soft at 10 minutes, which is just how I like them!
