I did something this weekend I am not proud of. I let myself be swayed by what can only be categorized as "fair food". I saw a picture on Pinterest of this cookie- this massive cookie within a cookie- and I had to give it a try. I regret it. It's taken me all weekend to recover from the sugar overload of eating just a half of one of these.

I am putting the recipe here, so I can lure others to do what I did, so I don't feel so disgusted with myself. Basically, I am imploring you all to make me feel like I am not the only one who can be mesmerized by the idea of an Oreo cookie baked inside two chocolate chip cookies.

So go ahead, try it.

Super huge, almost spaceshipish, Oreos swallowed by chocolate chip cookies recipe:

• 1 cup shortening
• 1 cup packed light brown sugar
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 2 large eggs
• 2 tablespoon vanilla extract
• 3 cups flour
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream shortening, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with a mixer until well combined.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In medium bowl mix the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
With a cookie scoop, form balls with the dough.
Place one ball on top of an Oreo cookie, and another ball on the bottom. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo cookie is fully enclosed with dough- this will be huge (even more so after it is baked).
Place onto parchment-lined or baking sheets and bake cookies for approximately 13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
