Cookies and Cream Cookies

Happy Monday! This weekend a few girlfriends got together for a game night. We played Loaded Questions and Quelf and not only had a lot of fun but got to know each other a lot better. We each brought a snack, so I took it as an opportunity to try out another new cookie recipe. I made these for the  girls and they basically disappeared from there and even the few left at home were gone. Not only did Jason claim them as the best cookies I have ever made but a few girls claimed it was the best cookie they have ever had! You can't beat those compliments as the best feedback. One of our favorite ice cream flavors is cookies and cream so this is a perfect match and tastes pretty similar. You can't go wrong with crushed up Oreos in anything! The only problem was that they disappeared too quickly!

Cookies and Cream Cookies
Yields about 26 cookies
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
6 Tbsp sugar
6 Tbsp light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
12 Oreo's, broken up into small pieces
Directions:Preheat the over to 350 degrees.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Add egg and vanilla and beat until well mixed.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined. Gently fold in Oreo pieces.
With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 1-2" apart.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the edges JUST start to brown. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
