Hi! I’m Mr. JavaCupcake, also known as deadcat, also known as Betsy’s husband, Dave. Today I’m sharing with you some cookies I made with my wife. Oreo Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies.
The last two years have been pretty rough on my wife. Because of my combat PTSD and everything that comes with it, my wife has had to endure some things that no wife should ever have to deal with. The effects of war reached far beyond me to my wife and children. However, Betsy did deal with it. She stood by me… every day.
The weekend I made these cookies, I had decided I wanted to spend some time with Betsy. Really spend time with her. So, I decided that we should get into the kitchen and bake!
My favorite cookies are Oreos and chocolate chip cookies cause they go awesome with milk. I needed to turn these two cookies into ONE SUPER COOKIE! One cookie to rule… them… all!
I started with a package of MEGA stuffed Oreos and my wife’s recipe for perfect chocolate chip cookies. In the chocolate chip cookie recipe, we replaced the chocolate chips with crushed Oreo cookie pieces.
The Oreo cream filling was supplemented with butter, sugar, vanilla and cream to make a titillating filling that knocked these cookies out of the park!
I really appreciate all your love and support over these last few years. Truly.
Enjoy these cookies!
