Sometimes I have no filter.  For example, in my mind, if chocolate cake is good, then chocolate cake with nuts inside, chocolate frosting on top and crushed up Heath Bars sprinkled over the top could only be better.  Peanut butter cookies are one of my all time favorite cookies.  I particularly like a thick (I’m talking at least an inch) cookie that is crispy on the outer edges and chewy in the middle with coarse sugar sprinkled over the top.  I think that it can be so difficult to replicate the style of a good bakery cookie at home.  When I decided to make a perfectly good thing even better by making these Oreo-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies, I knew that I wanted the peanut butter cookie to be able to stand on it’s own.  I wanted that thick and chewy bakery-style peanut butter cookie.

The base cookie that I used for these Oreo-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies are soft and chewy ad would be fantastic on their own.  But after making Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies a few months ago, I have been dying to try another cookie-inside-cookie combination!

I see many other stuffed cookie adventures in my future because I just cannot get enough of these over-the-top treats.  When you bake an Oreo inside a cookie, the Oreo itself gets slightly softer, but not at all soggy.  And the glorious, mysterious creamy filling in the Oreo melts slightly so that it is somewhat molten if you eat one of the stuffed cookies while they are still warm out of the oven.  With all of the creative Oreo flavors on the market these days, stay tuned for the next flavor combination that I present to you, because I know that it will not end with these Oreo-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies.
