At this point, I’m sure you think I’ve gone nuts with baking cookie cakes but I couldn’t help it. I mean, oreo stuffed ANYTHING should be shared right away. After baking the chocolate chip cookie cake and doing an M&M and chocolate chip version of it, I gave the chocolate chips a rest and used oreo cookies instead.
I recommend you bake this in a slightly bigger pan. Say an 10″ so that the batter is spread really thin and you get a minimal layer of batter enveloping the oreo cookies. Otherwise you could land up with too much batter on top and the cookies will just sink below.
There are two ways to use the oreo cookies in this recipe. You could either add crushed cookies to the batter before baking. In which case, they’ll be evenly spread and you can bake it in a 8″ pan.
The other way to do it is the one I prefer: Pour half the batter in a 10 cm pan, layer it with whole oreo cookies and then cover it with the remaining batter. However, if you’re using this method but baking in a smaller pan, then I recommend adding a cup of chocolate chips because you don’t want to end up with too thick a layer of batter and no chocolate or cookie in it.
