I wanted to make cookies for Don's lunches. I had everything I needed for this recipe. They are VERY good.
Cookies and Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield: Makes about 2-4 dozen cookies, depending on size
1 cup (16 tablespoons, 8 ounces) butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups (15 ounces) light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups (17.5 ounces) all-purpose flour
1 cup (5 ounces) malted milk powder or whole milk powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
36 to 40 Oreo or other chocolate sandwich cookies, coarsely chopped Beth used a whole package
2 cups (12 ounces) milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper or silicone liners.
In a large bowl with an electric handheld mixer or in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, cream cheese and brown sugar until well combined.
Add the vanilla and eggs and mix until the color lightens and the batter is fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, malted milk powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.
Stir in the Oreos and chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into 2-3 tablespoon size cookie dough balls (I use my large, #20 cookie scoop). Place them several inches apart on baking sheets and bake for 11-13 minutes until the edges are golden but the centers are still soft.
