Oreo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

It was my friend's birthday a couple of weekends ago, and to celebrate, her family had a BBQ. I decided I was going to bake something (any opportunity to try out new recipes!), and I had decided on some cookies and cream cookies. Unfortunately, I overbaked them and they came out kinda crispy and dry. :\ But I had also planned on making these - Oreo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies. They were a hit, and very tasty, if I do say so myself. I couldn't wait until they were done to try them. They don't take too long to make, either! So if you live the dangerous life and have a spare package of Oreos sitting around and you're looking for an excuse to get rid of them so you don't eat the whole thing yourself, then try out this recipe and share with friends! Or just try it out because it's not only peanut butter and chocolate, but two cookies in one. Yeah. Enough said.

I'm sure there are quite a lot of recipes for these out there on the Interwebz. I know that there are a lot for chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Oreos as well. I used Christy's recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything

Hers look more defined, structured, and small. I think mine came out a little big and haphazardly because I was in a hurry and in the midst of a baking panic since the first batch of cookies didn't work out. On the other hand, I did enjoy the nice, big cushion of delicious peanut butter cookie around the Oreo. It's really up to you! Either way, they'll taste amazing. :)
