Fun Stuff

One week of nights down, but I'm technically 1/3 of the way done!  Woo Hoo!  Have had a busy past couple of days.  Thursday afternoon before work, I was eating a salad when, "crunch," there was something there that wasn't supposed to be.  My front tooth bonding had come off.  Yay, now I had a chipped tooth and couldn't get to the dentist until the next day (thankfully they could get me in the next day at 10am).  So, I had to go to work with part of my tooth gone.  I felt like parents were staring at my mouth!  Oh well. 

Then, instead of sleeping, I went to get crowns put on my front teeth (I'm now hesitant to eat things I had to bite into...just bit into something and felt like they temporary crown was slipping off!).  Today I went to a wedding...30 minutes AFTER the wedding occurred.  Then tonight I went to a get together with some friends!  A fun two days...something else that's fun...these cookies!  What's better that oreos?  Oreos in a cookie!  I had seen several recipes but used the one on Anna's site.  Turned out pretty good.  Try them out for yourself!

Oreo Cookies from Cookie Madness
Oreo Chunk Cookies
12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour (8 1/2 oz by weight)
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar (LOVE this!)
10-12 (broken into small pieces) Oreos (I used the ones with one chocolate and one vanilla cookie)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat butter and sugars until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until combined.  Add flour, soda, salt, baking powder and cream of tartar to butter mixture and stir until incorporated. Stir in oreos by hand.

Place dough balls (tablespoon sized - like a walnut) on parchment lined or non-stick cookie sheet and flatten tops slightly. Bake for about 12 minutes or until brown around the edges. Cool slightly on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to set: remove from baking sheet. Cool on wire rack.  Enjoy!
