Chewy and Crispy Cookies and Cream Cookies
The holiday season is upon us.
And it’s about time, because the lack of daylight makes me want to blanket burrito myself with some snacks in arm’s reach and not emerge until spring.
Thankfully, I have Bruce the Spruce, the 8-inch tall tree I picked up at Trader Joe’s, to motivate me. He is sitting on the corner of my desk right now and BRINGING the damn holiday cheer.
Say hi, Bruce!!
I’m sure you could look at Bruce forever, but I’ll get to what you came for:
These cookies. Just looking at them is making me hungry. In fact, I went to go eat one while writing this post because I can’t help myself.
I’m not the only one whose self-control dissolves in the presence of them, either. These are the cookies my parents request every time I’m home. EVERY TIME. Either these cookies are absolutely incredible, or everything else I bake tastes like absolute shite…. I like to believe it’s the former.
So what is so great about these cookies, you ask?
They are a textural wonder, with a hint of crunch from the Oreos and a nice crispiness around the edges and a chewy, dare I say fudgy, center. They are my answer to every dry-and-crumbly or soft-but-not-actually-chewy cookie out there.
Also these cookies really bring the flavor. They are rich and buttery with delightful hints of caramel, and yet, they’re so thin that they’re almost light. Their sweetness is tempered by a trip to the freezer and a light sprinkling of sea salt on top.
Make these cookies, and you will win the cookie swap. Even if it’s not a competition.
