Cookies ‘n’ Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies
Admittedly a little sweeter than your average chocolate chip cookie, this recipe from Half Baked Harvest is what kiddos’ dreams are made of – enjoy!
1 c. butter, room temperature
1/4 c. sugar AND 3/4 c. dark brown sugar
2 eggs AND 2 t. vanilla
2 c. flour AND 1/4 c. malted milk powder (I used Milo)
1 t. baking soda AND 1/2 t. kosher salt
1+ c. crushed Oreo cookies
2/3 c. chocolate chunks or chips AND 1/4 c. chopped white chocolate or chips
Preheat the oven to 350 and line a couple of large baking sheets with parchment. Using your electric mixer, beat together the butter and both sugars for a couple of minutes until well mixed and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until combined, then scrape down the bowl and beat in the vanilla.
Stir in the flour, malted milk powder, baking soda and salt and once there is no trace of dry ingredients (I found the dough really sticky, so next time I’m going to try adding another 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour), then fold in the Oreos and both kinds of chocolate.
Roll into large (2 tablespoon-sized) balls and place them a good 3 inches apart on your prepared baking sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how chewy or crunchy you’d like them. Allow the cookies to rest for several minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool.
