Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies

11.29.2011

Whoever came up with the cookies and cream combination is genius!  It is an exquisite pairing that can be used in countless recipes.  I love how perfectly they compliment each other.  Come to think of it, what doesn’t cream compliment (everything’s better with a bit of cream =)?  This cookie is addictive and is sure to curb that sugary chocolaty craving.  If you are a real oreo lover, feel free to add a cup of chopped oreos into the dough for extra chocolaty goodness.  These cookies remind me of homemade oreo cookies, but they are an upgrade of course =).  Enjoy everyone!

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • Rose Marie: The cookie & cream recipe looks great and am anxious to try it out, but I have one concern. Doesn’t it have to be refrigerated since it contains cream? October 19, 2013 at 11:26pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I didn’t but to be safe you always could, then just allow them to warm a bit at room temp before enjoying. October 26, 2013 at 5:43am Reply
