Cookie Monster

Sometimes you just crave something sweet and crunchy. For me this always happens when I scroll through my Tumblr feed at 11 pm. All those yummy foods make me so hungry, but inspire me as well! This cookie recipe was inspired by the video of Gabriella, aka Velvetgh0st on YouTube. But me and my friend did put a Tumblr inspired twist on it, by putting Oreo cookies in the middle. And I can tell you that this makes the cookies even more delicious!

So what do you need?
200g butter
100g white caster sugar
100g icing sugar
1 1/2 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
200g plain flower
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 Toblerone Bar (we did eat some pieces so it was a whole bar minus 4 pieces :P)
Oreo cookies (We used about six Oreo's, since we also wanted to try plain cookies)

First of all, preheat your oven to 180 Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit.
The next step is to put the butter, caster sugar and icing sugar in a bowl and mix it together until you have a creamy, fluffy consistency.
Then you take the eggs, whisk them together and add them to the butter mixture and mix again. You can always add more egg if you want, but 1 1/2 should be enough! You also add the vanilla extract at this point.
Now it is time for the dry ingredients! Add the flower, salt and baking powder to the mixture. You could sift all the dry ingredients, but I never really do that to be honest..  Then you mix, mix, mix until you get dough that tastes exactly like Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough ice cream, YUM!
Break the Toblerone bar into pieces and cut all those triangle shaped chocolateness into big chunks and add it with the dough and mix it together.
Now take a small ice cream scooper and scoop a ball of dough on some greaseproof paper. Press an Oreo in the dough and add a second dough ball on top. Make sure that you can’t see the Oreo, so take a spoon and smooth out the dough on top of the cookie. If you want to have plain cookies than just take one scoop of dough for one cookie. I think me and my friend made about 10 cookies with this recipe. We had six Oreo cookies and 4 normal ones, so with this recipe you can either make 8 Oreo cookies or 16 normal cookies.

Put them in the oven for 12 minutes or until they are golden brown. Take them out of the oven, let them cool off and they are ready to eat! Super yummy cookies that I could eat every day!
