Chop the Oreos:  Chop the Oreo cookies roughly with a knife or smash them into smithereens using a mallet or similar (it’s up to you how fine you want the Oreo pieces or crumbs!)
Combine the cookie dough ingredients: Mix the chocolate chip cookie dough or unbaked cookie dough balls with the softened butter and egg, then add the sour cream and vanilla extract.
Add more ingredients: Next, mix in the chocolate chips as well as half the chopped or crushed Oreos.
Divide up the cookie dough: Drop heaped tablespoons using a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop (here) of the cookie dough on to a parchment paper lined baking sheet or cookie sheet, pressing more chopped Oreo pieces into each one.
Bake the cookies: Preheat oven and cook for about 12 minutes or until the middles are set and the edges are firm.
Let them cool: Give the cookies about 10 minutes on a wire rack to cool, then serve and enjoy.

Substitutions and Variations

Use white chocolate chips instead of semi sweet chocolate chips if you prefer, or use another cookie if Oreos aren’t your favorite.

You don’t have to use the Oreo brand – Walmart’s Great Value alternative is also ideal for making this recipe. And you can use absolutely any flavor Oreos or similar.

How many Oreo cookies do you need? It depends – if you’re using regular ones or another kind of sandwich cookie then you’ll need about 25, but if you’re using a smaller or larger type of cookie, adjust the amount accordingly. This recipe with Oreos is a great way to use your box of cookies.

You can also sub another extract for the vanilla, or use unsalted butter in place of salted, adding a small pinch of salt to make up for it.

A little dark brown sugar or granulated sugar can be added if you’re subbing a bittersweet chocolate for the semi sweet chocolate chips, just to balance out the sweetness. You might even want to add a handful of mini marshmallows!

Freeze: Freeze them in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag and eat within 3 months.

Can you use another kind of cookie dough mix?

Yes, you might prefer to use sugar cookie mix and then just add extra milk chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips. You can also experiment with different cookie dough mixes.

How small should you make the Oreo pieces?

It’s up to you. You can make them small or large, depending on the texture you want in the finished cookies.
