Cake Batter Oreo Cookies

Cake Batter Oreo Cookies

I love me a good cookie. I have been wanting to try out something new and of course the Pinterest gods did me a solid: they pointed me to Sally’s Baking Addiction, specifically her Cake Batter Oreo Cookies. I saw chocolate chips, sprinkles, oreos, and cake on the recipe; I was SOLD!

Cake Batter Oreo Cookie Ingredients

Her recipe can be found below:

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 and 1/4 cups (160g)all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (190g) yellow or vanilla boxed cake mix 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) light brown sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (80g) sprinkles
  • 10 Oreos, crushed into pieces 

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large bowl, sift together flour, cake mix, and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. Using a hand mixer, cream the softened butter and both sugars together on medium speed until smooth.
  3. Cake batter oreo cookie ingredients Add the egg and mix on high until combined, about 1 minute.
  4. Eggs Add the vanilla and beat on high until combined. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix on low-medium speed until just combined.
  5. VanillaAdd the chocolate chips, sprinkles, and crushed Oreos. Mix on low until the add-ins are evenly disbursed.
  6. Cake Batter Oreo Cookies IngredientsCover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours, or up to 3 days. This step is mandatory. The dough is fairly sticky, so chilling the dough is required in order to avoid the cookies from spreading too much. If you chill longer than 2 hours, make sure you roll the cookie dough into balls after the 2 hour mark. Place dough balls on a plate, cover tightly, and store in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
  7. Once chilled, preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  8. Scoop rounded balls of the cold dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Use about 2 Tablespoons of cookie dough per cookie. Shape your cookie dough balls to be “taller” than they are wide, as explained and pictured in the original recipe. Press a few chocolate chips or crushed Oreo pieces into the tops of the cookie dough balls, if desired. That makes a pretty cookie. Make sure to keep dough chilled when working in batches.
  9. Cake Batter Oreo CookiesBake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until edges are slightly browned. Mine took 10 minutes exactly. The centers will still appear very soft, but the cookies will set as they cool. You may also press a few more chips into the tops of the cookies at this point (the chips will melt down and stick from the warm cookies).
  10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 4 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days. They won’t last that long! (They didn’t — mine were gone in 2 days. YIKES!)

How I’m Feeling

Today was an incredible day. I began working at a new job and loved every minute of it. The feeling is indescribable so I have done my best to relay my sentiments through photos:
