Oreo Stuffed Cookie Jars and BlogHer Food, Atlanta

Travel, Uncategorized | Tags:


I was so excited to bring one of these little Oreo Stuffed Cookie Jars to Amanda last week during out trip to Atlanta for the BlogHer Food Conference.  I wrapped it nicely in my suitcase and when I opened my suitcase my little jar was broken!!  I was devastated, but luckily we had plenty of treats over the weekend that made up for it :)

It’s basically the same recipe as my Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies just layered nicely in little jars.

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie Jars

2 sticks softened butter

3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar

1 Cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 Tablespoon pure vanilla

3 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

10 oz bag chocolate chips

1 bag Oreo Cookies, I used the double stuff :)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

2. In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined. Using a cookie scoop a large scoop of dough into the bottom of each mason jar.  Layer with Oreo cookies, then cookie dough, repeating until you’ve reached the top of the jar, leaving 1 inch free.   Bake cookies 15 to 17 minutes or until cookies are baked to your liking. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve with a tall glass of milk, enjoy!

Here are some photos from my trip to Atlanta :)

Atlanta was great.  Here is the view from our room.  It was quite stunning.  There is nothing better than a conference full of food bloggers.  We did not waste any time, shortly after we arrived it was time to get ready for our first party.  The ever so talented Susan from She’s Becoming Doughmesstic hosted a lovely party at the Hard Rock Cafe.  She is superwoman if you ask me, really was a perfect night to chit chat with friends, eat some good food and talk with brands.  I regret not taking many photos this trip, so I’ve borrowed my friends :)

Friday morning was the first session of the conference.  Here is where I found the beautiful Leslie of Hungry Housewife, love her!  We both had on the exact same colors, and outfits from Target :)

Here is my sweet friend Amy from Mom Advice.  She is one of the sweetest most genuine women I have met.  I wish we were in the same town!

Friday afternoon, Amanda and I skipped out of the 2nd half of the conference and went to some fun eats in Atlanta.  First was Taqueria del Sol, which had some of the best tacos I have ever had.  Next was Star Provisions, the treats you see in the above photo.  Their bakery was gorgeous and that Homemade S’mores Bar was incredible.  I must re-create it!

Here we are Friday night getting ready for the “Pork Crawl” an event put on by the National Pork Board and Jaden of Steamy Kitchen.  Talk about a night of over eating!  We were treated to 3 beautiful restaurants where the chefs created 3 course meals all with pork.  It was unforgettable and I still need to work off all of that food!

    That looks like a lot of fun (the conference – not cleaning out a suitcase with cookie crumbles) On the cookie jars…I can’t tell from the photo, did you make the cookie dough and put it in the jars or did you put the dry ingredients in?

    Jenny these pictures make me wish I had gone to BlogHer ATL! WOW!!!

    You all look so amazing, beautiful, and happy!

    It’s a treat for us bloggers, women, and for those of us who are mothers too, to get away for a weekend and spend time with like-minded others and learn, share, grow.

    And also ride in limos and get dressed up and have a few drinks and have a blast, right :)
