Cookies and Cream Cookies
These were the cookies that I baked for the boyfriend’s second care package (the first care package included the Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies). It was such a quick and simple recipe, which is just what I needed since I’ve been absolutely swamped with schoolwork. Also, this was the perfect recipe to use up my leftover Oreos from the Oreo Stuffed White Chocolate Chip Cookies. I baked several batches and as I was waiting for them to cool, I took a glorious bite out of one of the piping hot cookies and they tasted just as I imagined. It was just chunks of Oreo pieces throughout a crisp yet soft thin cookie complemented by a cold glass of milk. Mmmmmm.
