Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly golden. Remove from oven and optionally top with extra chocolate chips and Oreo pieces. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tip: To ensure even baking, rotate the cookie sheet halfway through the baking time.

Substitutions

  • Gluten-Free: Replace regular flour with a gluten-free alternative and use gluten free oreos.

Variations

  • Brown Butter: For a richer, nuttier flavor, brown the butter before using it in the recipe. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, swirling occasionally, until it turns a golden brown and gives off a nutty aroma. Let it cool, then use it as you would regular butter in the cookie dough. This will add a depth of flavor to your Oreo chocolate chip cookies.
  • Ice Cream Sandwiches: Transform your cookies into decadent ice cream sandwiches. Once your cookies have cooled, take a scoop of your favorite ice cream and place it on the flat side of one cookie. Press another cookie on top, gently, to create a sandwich. Freeze the sandwiches for about an hour before serving.

Equipment

How to Store

Properly storing your Oreo chocolate chip cookies ensures they retain their delightful texture and flavor. Once the cookies have cooled completely on a cooling rack, transfer them to an airtight container. This container should be kept in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Stored like this, your cookies will remain fresh and delicious for up to 5 days. If you prefer your cookies with a slightly chewier texture, you can store them with a piece of bread in the container, which helps maintain moisture.

How to Freeze

  • Freezing Unbaked Cookie Dough Balls: If you have prepared more cookie dough than needed, or you wish to bake a fresh batch later, freezing the unbaked dough is a great option. Scoop out balls of dough using an ice cream scoop or a large cookie scoop for consistency. Place these balls on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, ensuring they’re not touching. Freeze them until solid, then transfer the frozen dough balls to a freezer bag or airtight container. Label it with the date, and you can store these for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to bake, there’s no need to thaw; just place the frozen dough balls on a cookie sheet and bake, adding an extra minute or two to the original baking time.
  • Freezing Baked Cookies: To freeze the already baked cookies, wait until they are completely cooled. Then, place them in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid. Once frozen, transfer the cookies to a freezer bag or an airtight container, separating layers with parchment paper to prevent sticking. These can be stored for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy them, let the cookies thaw at room temperature for about an hour or warm them up in the oven for a few minutes for that freshly-baked feel.

expert Tips

  • Use room temperature ingredients for a smoother dough.
  • Do not overmix the dough to keep cookies chewy.
  • Use a cookie scoop for uniformly sized cookies.
  • Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack to maintain their texture.
  • For a more intense flavor, consider using dark chocolate chips.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use different types of Oreos in this recipe?

Absolutely! While regular Oreos are a classic choice, feel free to experiment with various Oreo flavors like Golden Oreos, Mint, or even the Red Velvet variety for a unique twist. Each type will lend its distinct flavor to the cookies, making them even more special.

How can I tell when the cookies are perfectly baked?

Your chocolate chip cookies are done when the edges are set and golden brown, but the centers are still soft. This usually takes about 10-12 minutes in the oven. Remember, the cookies will continue to cook slightly on the cookie sheet after you remove them from the oven, so it’s okay if they seem a bit underdone at first.

Is it better to use a hand mixer or a stand mixer for this recipe?

Both work well, but they have their nuances. A stand mixer, especially one fitted with a paddle attachment, is more powerful and efficient for creaming butter and sugar. However, a hand mixer can be more convenient for smaller batches or for those who don’t have a stand mixer. Just ensure to mix at a consistent medium speed for the best results.

Can I make these cookies if I don’t have a cookie scoop?

Yes, you can. While a cookie scoop helps ensure uniform size and baking, you can use two spoons or an ice cream scoop to form your cookie dough balls. Just aim to keep them as consistent in size as possible for even baking.

How do I keep my cookies from spreading too much in the oven?

To prevent excessive spreading, make sure your butter isn’t too warm when you start mixing. It should be at room temperature but not overly soft. Chilling the cookie dough balls for about 30 minutes before baking can also help if your kitchen is very warm. Lastly, ensure you’re using the right amount of flour – using a kitchen scale for accuracy is a great tip.

What’s the best way to incorporate the Oreo chunks into the cookie dough?

Gently fold in the Oreo chunks with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula after you’ve mixed in your chocolate chips and other wet and dry ingredients. Be careful not to overmix, as this can break down the Oreo pieces too much and affect the texture of your cookies.

Can I use this recipe for cookie bars?

Yes, you can. Press the cookie dough into a parchment paper-lined large baking sheet or pan, and bake for a bit longer than the individual cookies – usually around 20-25 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center; it should come out clean or with a few crumbs.
