Homemade Cookie Dough Oreos

Did you get a chance to try Oreo’s newest limited edition flavors? In January they released two new flavors: Cookie Dough and Rice Krispies Treats.

In all honesty, I actually prefer the Rice Krispies Treats flavor– which is weird for me, since I’m a chocolate girl. Regardless, I thought the cookie dough flavor would be a lot of fun to recreate (but making it taste better, of course).

I hemmed and hawed for days over which type of chocolate cookie I wanted to make for these Oreos. I found merit in both versions of homemade Oreos that I’ve tried… a crispy, crunchy chocolate shortbread would be more like a real Oreo, and I like the idea of that (see my Red Velvet Oreos).

But I was eventually convinced that the soft, cake-like Oreos would be the best way to go for this recipe. Mostly because I know the soft version of homemade Oreos usually have a sweet cream cheese filling, and I happen to have a great recipe for cookie dough dip with a cream cheese base. And I thought that made the combo quite poetic.

Big thanks to my sweet cousin, Shannon, for prompting me to make these!

And a shout out to both Nikki and Lindsay who beat me to the punch ;) You can check out their versions of these copycat cookies on Chef in Training and Love and Olive Oil.

    As a food blogger you should have more respect for baking than coping out using a box of cake mix. There is no room for adaptation for food restrictions when you use a box mix in a recipe. Plus those things are full of crap.
