The idea for these cookies literally came to me in a dream. I wish I was making that up but I swear to you it's true. In the dream I was visiting a bakery with an old friend (I know, even my dreams are glamorous and exciting) and when my friend couldn't decide what cookie to buy I told her to get the 'white chocolate and Oreo cookie' because I had made those.
Seriously. There are people my age who are actual rock stars and I am dreaming about baked goods.
Mundane dreaming aside, I woke up that morning knowing that the cookies in the dream were modified from this recipe and that I was going to have to make them for real. You don't turn down dream cookies. You just don't.
- 125g butter, softened
- 100g light brown soft sugar
- 125g caster sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 175g self-raising flour
- 50g cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 100g white chocolate, roughly chopped
- 100g Oreo cookies, broken
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4 and line two or three baking trays with greaseproof paper.
- Cream the butter and sugars together. Add the egg and vanilla extract and combine.
- Sift in the flour, salt, and cocoa powder and mix again.
- Roughly chop 100g of white chocolate and add to the mixture.
- Put 100g of Oreos into a plastic bag and whack with a rolling pin until the Oreos are all broken up into chunks and then add those to the mixture too. Give it all one more gentle mix to combine the chocolate and Oreo chunks.
- Roll into twelve walnut sized balls and place on the lined trays.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 7-10 minutes. 7 minutes if you want them to be very soft and gooey in the middle, 10 minutes if you want your cookies to be a little more crunchy around the edges.
- Remove the cookies from the oven and leave them on the trays to harden for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a wire wrack to cool completely.
