Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cookies

November 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!
