My favorite cookies stuffed with Oreos and Cookies & Cream Chocolate Pieces. These cookies are full of crunchy and creamy goodness.
So, we made it. After almost 72 hours, 2 flat tires and a total of 1000 miles traveled, we’re back safe and sound. I am happy to say that Kansas did not disappoint with stilling my longing for hot summer days. So glad that I was able to experience at least one 90 degree day this summer J. My brother-in-law is set for another year of school and we already can’t wait to go back for graduation next year!
The only thing that didn’t go as planned (besides the 2 flat tires, which were no biggie to fix), was that I forgot to pack my newest cookie creation – these Cookies ‘n Cream Cookies. I’d always wanted to make my own version of Cookies ‘n Cream Cookies and thought that they would be just the thing to bring on a road trip.
Well, my mind totally spaced and forgot about packing said cookies (how that happened, I do not know), which meant that I had to bake a batch of good ‘ol chocolate chip cookies dorm room style upon arrival. Just as scrumptious, but not quite the same.
Don’t get me wrong, nothing beats a good chocolate chip cookie, but once you bake a batch of cookies and cream ones, they’re all you can think about.
Guess what I did after returning to our MN home sweet home? Yep, taking a big bite out of one of these goodies. After thinking about them for hours, there was no way I could’ve waited another second. Could you have? Yeah, that’s precisely why we’re getting along so well!
These cookies are a variation of my very favorite Chocoholic Chocolate Chunk Cookies. I slightly adapted the recipe to ensure that all that cookies and cream wonderfulness could shine and I am so glad I chose that recipe. I was actually debating whether or not to post it since it’s somewhat similar to the one I already have on here, but a cookie this good needed to be shared with my invisible internet friends. I have a feeling ya’ll would love them.
Whoops – the south is rubbing off on me, ha.

Glad to hear you had a great time in Kansas. We lived in Manhattan (the Little Apple) for three years and loved it. Even though the summers are warm, I loved still being able to go to the pool 6:00 p.m. and it was still hot enough.
