I had so much fun developing this massive cookie with all kinds of goodness packed inside.  I have teamed up with my good friend Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod today to share with you two amazing Oreo recipes that will be perfect for your Holiday baking this month!  Maria is using the Gingerbread Oreos, “Gingerbread Oreo Blondies” and I chose the Candy Cane Oreos for my cookies.  Can’t go wrong with either of these right?!

If you haven’t tried these Candy Cane Oreos, you are in for a treat.  You definitely must get a hold of them.  They have just the right amount of peppermint cream and when mixed in the cookie dough, it turned the most lovely red.  So festive!

Aren’t they pretty?!

You know that I love my chocolate chunks, I found this great bloc chocolate at Trader Joes, but any variety will work.

Now that’s a lovely sight to see

Cream your butter and sugars to start.

Vanilla!

Add your egg.

Time for the dry ingredients!

Add those gorgeous chocolate chunks.

 ….and those fabulous Candy Cane Oreos.

Gorgeous right?!

Try baking these in a muffin top pan, talk about a gorgeous cookie!  They work as a drop cookie too

Perfect for any cookie exchange or for gift giving.  Enjoy!
