Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip and Confetti Sugar Cookies
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas yesterday! As a part of my big cookie platters this year, I took 2 ideas away from the huge Food Blogger Cookie Swap round ups: Confetti Cookies which I did a bit differently but used the some basic concept (so pretty!) and Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies which are just as ridiculously wonderful as they sound!
I really love the concept of these cookies, they are so so pretty and festive.
I used the same pink/red (really it was pink) frosting and a few white decorating sprinkles to come up with these cute little guys. They were my Cousin Steve's favorite.
Next up I worked on the oreo-Stuffed chocolate chip cookies.
These bad boys were ENORMOUS.
Haha, I think I maybe put a little too much dough around the outside of the oreos....but hey, who doesn't love a giant cookie?
I didn't bite into any of them because I only got about 14 out of the batch. But you can sneak a peak at an oreo here:
Stay tuned this week for a full recipe for MY favorite cookie from this years Christmas platter: The Coffee snap. Happy shopping to those who are braving the malls today.... I will be plopped in front of the fireplace for the duration.
