Easy Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you follow 2LB on Facebook, you probably saw about a week and a half ago, late at night, you probably saw this status "It's 11:45pm people, and I just put my second batch of cookies in the oven. This is what I do when I should be sleeping. This and blogging ;)" Well here are those cookies I was baking...

*Just so you know, I've covered this before but I think it's necessary to go over it again. Ideas that I share on here like to pop into my head while I'm standing in the kitchen staring into the pantry, I'm in the shower, or driving my car. Often times, they start with a craving (I'm sure you've noticed). Sometimes they spawn from another something I've made. I don't get my ideas from other websites, Pinterest, etc. BUT IF I do, I will always state that. Regardless, my goal is to be original, not just share someone else's idea. I like to check to originality of things I've made, usually with a few Google searches and stuff. After I made these, I did a quick scan of Google and Pinterest, and obviously I'm not the only one who has had this wacky craving. 

I've just seen some good recipes for things very similar to this, but a lot of them require making your own dough and actually rolling the Oreo into it. I have no time nor patience for that, however. In this case, especially, I needed a dessert fix immediately. One night at my sister's house, we were all wanting something sweet and naturally, I was nominated to bake us something at 11:30pm. Scrounging through her pantry and cabinet, gathering potential supplies onto the counter, this is what I've come up with.
It's the simple version ;)

You'll Need:
Your favorite cookie-dough mix - I used Pillsbury - plus the ingredients required per the mix's recipe
1 Oreo for each cookie the mix will make. I made about 20.

That's It :)

Mix your cookie dough.

Spread your Oreos out on your cookie sheet, in the places you would place your cookie dough balls to bake.

Plop a spoonful of cookie dough right on top of the Oreo, about the same size as the Oreo.

Be careful moving the pan. Because there is no dough on the pan, the cookies will slide around.
Bake in the oven at the same temperature and the same time that your cookie mix requires.
(I added a minute or two to mine and they were still super gooey)

Wait as patiently as you can. I know it's hard. As you can see, I stood and watched them bake, as if I could hurry them along by doing so.

Enjoy! Ours were so gooey because we didn't wait for them to cool, we ate them with a fork.
Talk about chocolate-heaven. If only we had vanilla ice cream to go on top.
