Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

(One of these days, I will take a break from my sweet obsession and blog about something savory. But that day is not today.)

If you ever want to make friends, put Oreos in chocolate chip cookie dough. Ooo, lala, baking brilliance inspired by the Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie phenomenon of 2011. Only they are even easier to make and yield a bigger batch. Win and win.

It's the kind of recipe you make on Sunday, where they are poof! gone at a chili cook-off, and then find the need to bake another batch to share for Tuesday night dinner.

Adults find the Oreo stuffing thing delicious, but kids, they find it fascinating. One girl who lit up my life tonight had to take the cookie around to other people to show them how there was an Oreo inside, and then came back to inquire how exactly the Oreo got there and how it was sliced like that.

1 batch Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie dough (recipe also on back of chocolate chip bag)
26 Oreos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch pan. Spread half of dough in the bottom of the pan (I use my fingers to get it to cover all the area). Set the Oreos in rows on top of dough. Take small clumps of remaining dough, press it into flat segments and lay them on top of Oreos until the Oreos are covered in dough. It's okay if you have a few small open spots; the dough will rise and spread.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until dough starts to brown. Cool, cut and serve. For most wondrous taste, eat warm out of the oven.
