Hey all, my name is Ashley, I discovered Pop Culture Uncovered through cosplay, and even had the honor of being featured. I’m super excited to join the site as a writer and I’ll start off in the sweetest way possible: dessert!
My roommates and I had a cheat day last Sunday, eating more than I care to admit. But once we’d scarfed down breakfast skillets, waffles, wings, hummus, and other goodies, we were ready for dessert. Normally, I bake everything from scratch, but when it’s 8pm on a lazy Sunday night, there’s nothing better than boxed mix. I have two recipes for you all that use mostly premade ingredients, so they don’t require a lot of thought. Easy and delicious, what more could you want?
What you’ll need:
Toll House pre made cookie dough
Preheat your oven to 350. Grease your baking sheet or place a piece of parchment paper over top.
Take some of your cookie dough and mold it into a ball, then flatten it out. I didn’t want a lot of cookies, so I used one of the packs pictured below. I used about two and a half squares per ball.
Take an Oreo and slather a layer of Nutella on one side and peanut butter on the other. Place the Oreo in the center of your flattened cookie dough and then start to mold the dough around the Oreo.
Use a little more cookie dough to cover the top. Round out the ball and set it on your cookie sheet. Repeat as many times as you want. In one pack of cookie dough, I got three stuffed cookies, along with two plain cookies.
Bake according to the package directions, about 8-10 minutes. Fair warning, the cookies will spread out after baking and end up looking a little like flying saucers. That’s okay. If you were making the cookie dough from scratch, you could adjust the recipe in order to prevent the cookies from spreading by adding more flour. For more information on adjusting a recipe to get your perfect chocolate chip cookie, check out this website.
Oops! We got some mergers. You can also see the plain cookie in the background.
These cookies are gooey and delicious right out of the oven. I do recommend heating the cookie before eating it or cutting it as the Oreo will harden back up a little after the cookie cools. If they last that long, that is (they didn’t in my house). Enjoy!
