- Make sure your unsalted butter is softened but still slightly cold.
- Oreos are the star here! I like using regular ones, but double stuffed Oreos will give you an extra creamy center. However, they don't have to be the Oreo brand - your favorite creme-filled sandwich cookie will taste great in these stuffed cookies!

How to Make Oreo Stuffed Cookies
Step 1: In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or using a hand mixer, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract.
Step 2: Mix all purpose flour, baking soda, and salt into the wet ingredients until combined. Then, fold in the chocolate chips evenly throughout the cookie dough.
Step 3: Place an Oreo between two 4-teaspoon scoops of cookie dough, and seal edges together to completely cover the Oreo. Place the stuffed cookie dough balls on a baking sheet.
Step 4: Bake the Oreo stuffed cookies at 350°F until the edges start to tan (about 9-12 minutes). Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
- You want your butter softened but still a little cold so the dough is easy to work with. If your butter is too warm or even melted, it will be difficult to handle when you put the Oreos in cookie dough. Colder butter will also help prevent the cookies from spreading too much while they bake.
- Using a cookie scoop (4-teaspoon capacity) to portion out the chocolate chip cookie dough makes this process easy, consistent and clean.
- Make sure you place the dough balls on your cookie sheet with the Oreo flat rather than standing on its side.
You won't need to chill this cookie dough before baking. However, if you'd like to make the dough in advance, you can keep it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours before baking.
This could be from your butter being too warm and soft, not creaming together the butter and sugar enough, or under-measuring flour.
No, feel free to use any creme-filled cookie brand. You could also stuff them with other types of cookies if you'd like!
Absolutely! The dough can be made a month ahead of time. I recommend scooping the cookie dough into balls and freezing them. When you're ready to assemble and bake the cookies, let the dough balls thaw just until they're soft enough to mold around the Oreos. Then bake the Oreo stuffed cookies as normal!
Store Oreo stuffed cookies in an airtight container on the counter for up to 1 week. I recommend adding a slice of bread to the container to keep them extra soft for longer!
Individually wrap fully cooled cookies in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
The cookie dough can also be made ahead of time and frozen for up to 1 month. I recommend forming the dough balls and freezing them in a freezer-safe bag. Thaw the dough balls, wrap 2 around an Oreo, and bake at 350°F until the edges are tan.
