Dear chocolate chip Oreo cookies,

Chocolate chip cookies with Oreo crumbles

I started on this sugary path to you when I found a coupon for a free package of Oreos at the grocery store. And for some reason, my brain thought, ‘What can I make with these?’

Forget that Oreos are good enough, sweet enough, delicious enough, diet-busting enough on their own, but I had the urge to use them on a grander palate of cookiedom. What resulted was cookie Inception.

Since I’m still kind of a newbie, my cookies looked a little different and came out crunchier, but they were still a hit at the office. I’ll take that.
