I have wanted to make these cookies since the day I saw them.

And I figured that celebrating the release of Jenny Flake’s cookbook, The Picky Palate Cookbook was the perfect occasion to finally give them a try.  Jenny is the genius behind the Pumpkin Streusel Bread that I shared last week.  That recipe and the one that I am sharing today for Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are just a couple of the must-make recipes that Jenny has included in her first cookbook.

If you don’t like a giant chocolate chip cookie with America’s Favorite Cookie, the Oreo stuffed inside it, may I suggest that you need to have your taste buds checked??  Obviously I am being dramatic and there is nothing wrong with you, but I think that combining arguably most people’s two favorite cookies into one dessert is sure to please most sweet lovers to say the least!

This really is almost the equivalent of two regular-sized chocolate chippers wrapped around a Double Stuf Oreo and let’s just recognize that that means you get to eat three cookies for the price of one!  Score one for the cookie lovers!!

The Picky Palate Cookbook is aimed to please cooks who are trying to make family-friendly snacks and meals that will win the approval of fussy eaters.  Jenny has included meals for breakfast, side dishes, main courses and of course, desserts.  She even has some tips for parents for how to get your kids to try and eat more foods such as challenging your child to see “How many different colors of the rainbow can we eat off our plate?”  Even though I don’t have kids or particularly picky eaters in my home, there are so many recipes I am excited to make from this book, such as the Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Quick Bread pictured in the bottom of this photo from the cookbook.

Jenny has very generously offered to give one of her cookbooks to one of you sweet teeth!  Enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a copy of The Picky Palate Cookbook!  Happy Halloween!!

    I think it has to be oatmeal raisin although I think once I love anything with Oreo so this could be a new favorite. Thanks for the giveaway. Happy Halloween!

    Oops, should’ve read the directions first, my all time favorite cookie has to be a good chocolate chip, so I’m sure chocolate chip cookies with Oreo on the middle would make me very happy as well!

    Wow, that’s a hard question. All cookies are, in my opinion, really delicious. I’d have to say my favorite, though, is a just baked chocolate chip cookie, with chips all melty. Mmmmm…

    It’s very hard to pick just one! Homemade chocolate chip cookies, double chocolate chip cookies, coconut macaroons dipped in bittersweet chocolate, etc., ie, as long as there’s chocolate in there!
