Recipe Time! Cookies and Cream Cookies (with hugs and kisses!) from Sugar Plum
What you’ll need:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup coarsely chopped Oreo cookies (mini oreos are also acceptable here!)
24 hershey’s hugs/kisses (ideally this would be with cookies and cream kisses, but I couldn’t find any near me when I made this recipe)
The How To:
Preheat oven to 350 deg F
Whisk the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl
Cream the butter and cream cheese together with the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla, then gradually adding the flour mixture until this cookie dough is thicker than you’ll ever imagine. Seriously. Be careful not to break your spoon. But it’s awesome.
For the oreos, I honestly threw them in my cookie dough and took my anger out on them via spoon. This way it leaves some good oreo chunks in your cookies. Some people may not like that, so you can do what you like!
Pop in the oven for 11-13 minutes. As SOON as they come out of the oven, unwrap the chocolates and smash them right in the center of your fresh baked cookies while they’re still hot.
Not only will the chocolates get nice and melty, but they’ll resolidify overnight so you won’t have a melty mess to bring with you wherever your life may take you. These cookies look a little biscuit-y when they come out, because the batter is SO thick. But they taste great, and were a big hit at work!
Upcoming, I made up a cookie in my head and will hopefully have some time this week to try it out. It’s called the “treat yo’ self” cookie. Any of my fellow parks and rec fans should be psyched.
Recipe time!! Cookies and Cream Cupcakes with Oreo Buttercream Frosting
For the cupcakes:
2 sticks sweet butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups Self Rising Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
10 crushed (I put about 12-14) Oreo cookies
Quickie Instructions: Preheat to 350 - bakes for 20 minutes (mine came out a liiiittle crispy, but I think its getting used to my new oven.)
Whisk the flour/baking soda together in a bowl, set aside
In another bowl, mix the softened butter, sugar and vanilla until they’re a good solid mass. Then, add the eggs and mix together (this is similar to making cookie dough, for my fellow bakers. At least, this is how I handle it)
Gradually add the flour until ya done.
Throw in your cookies and mash them up (so you have some big and some little chunks) and then fill your cupcake containers. Bake away!
Yield: 18 cupcakes.
For the frosting:
4 cups confectioners sugar
1 stick unsalted sweet butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 tbsp milk
Soften the butter, add the sugar and vanilla. Gradually add the milk as you need it, until “soft peaks” form (aka the frosting looks soft and fluffy). Throw your cookies in and mash them up with your …whatever. I used my hand mixer just off until they were all crushed, then turned it back in to mix them all in.
I have been baking these cookies for a while now, and everyone loves them. I found the original recipe on Lovin’ From the Oven. I made few adjustments to the original recipe. Here is the recipe with the adjustments I made:
1 Cup of butter
6 Tablespoons of sugar
6 Tablespoons of brown sugar
1 Teaspoon of vanilla
1 Teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon of salt
8 broken Oreos
1 ¼ Cup flour
1 Cup of Chocolate chips
Cream the butter, add the sugar mix until combined well. Add the eggs, combine, add the vanilla. In another bowl stir the baking soda and salt in the flour. add to the butter mix and combine. Stir in the chocolate chips and Oreo.
Scoop out medium sized scoops using an ice cream scooper or a cookie dough scooper and line on baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are golden in a pre heated 350 degrees oven . Let them rest for few minutes before you move them. Let them cool completely if you plan to store them. Have them with a glass of milk.
Okay idk if you guys would be interested or not but I’ll post the recipe for the tortillas because I swear to god they were DE-licious. It’s a super simple recipe, plus they’re crispier and fluffier than store-bought tortillas. :)
