These chewy peanut butter Oreo cookies are loaded with chocolate sandwich cookies and salty peanut butter flavor!
Total Time:20 minutes
¾ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
¼ cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1–1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1–1/4 cups roughly chopped chocolate sandwich cookies (about 12 Oreos)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a sheet pan with a piece of parchment. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together the peanut butter and butter until combined and smooth, about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and sugar, stirring on medium to cream, about 1 minute. Add the egg and vanilla extract and stir to combine. Scrape the sides of the bowl. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring on low to combine. Slowly stir in the sandwich cookie pieces just until combined.
Use a large cookie scoop to portion our 3 tablespoon-sized balls of dough. The dough is crumbly- feel free to pack balls with your hands and gently press down to barely flatten them into puck shapes. Bake the cookie dough in batches spread out 2” apart on the prepared pan for about 10-11 minutes in your preheated oven. The cookies won’t be browned on the top. Allow the cookies to set and cool almost to room temperature before removing from pan. Enjoy!
