I have a box of Oreo cookies laying in my pantry begging me to used them, so I’ve been quite obsessed about baking with Oreo lately. Initially, I wanted to make Oreo cuppies, but I only had 2 eggs, which was not enough for me to make the Swiss Meringue Buttercream to frost the cuppies. And yes, I was too lazy to walk to the supermarket to get more eggs.
So there was a change of plans! I needed to bake something badly to destress as work has been pretty hectic. And these cookies were easy to make and they taste great! My co-worker gets to share some of my stressors because I bring my bake goods to share with them at work. They often kid that they should stress me more so that they get to enjoy more goodies.
I love the pairing of Oreo and cream cheese. They are a pair made in heaven, and with mini chocolate chips in the tangy, sweet, buttery, and chewy cookies to boot? What’s not to love?
