Brownie Swirled Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies

Good Sunday everyone! How fast did summer fly by?!! I can’t believe school is tomorrow morning! Crazy. I can’t picture my little guy eating lunch at school, I wonder if they’ll let me go spy on him to make sure he’s ok! His teacher is awesome, I know this will be a good year.

Ok, are you ready for another Oreo cookie creation? This one is even crazier than the last one and it has that great chocolate/peanut butter combo that we all love! There’s one catch, you have to make brownies too, I know, how horrible!

If you don’t feel like making brownies, you can certainly leave out the brownie swirls, but I wouldn’t! I love the broken Oreo’s in the peanut butter cookies, talk about a treat! Look in your pantry, I bet you’ve got all the ingredients to make them tonight. Happy Baking and good luck with the first day of school tomorrow if your kids start then too!!

Brownie Swirled Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies

1 stick butter
½ Cup peanut butter
½ Cup sugar
½ Cup brown sugar
1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ Cups flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

8 oreos broken into pieces

1 Brownie mix of choice

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream the butter and sugars until well combined. Add in peanut butter until well combined. With mixer on low beat in egg and vanilla until smooth.

2. Sift flour, baking soda and powder, and salt into a large bowl. With mixer on low slowly add in dry ingredients and broken oreos until just combined. Pour cookie dough onto a rimmed cookie sheet and press to about ½ inch thick, doesn’t have to be totally flat or reach edges of cookie sheet, just spread out.

3. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Take 3 tablespoons of brownie batter and drizzle evenly over cookie dough. Take a toothpick and gently swirl brownie batter into cookie dough only a few times. You should be able to see clear brownie swirls.

4. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough with brownie swirls onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies are cooked through but still soft. Let cool for 3 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to cool. Serve and enjoy!

**Save and bake the remaining brownie batter after cookies are done baking at 350 degrees F. according to package directions***

Coming next are some great little pizza’s on one of my favorite quick and easy crusts, See you soon!

    I have been trying your recipes alot this month and my husband is in food heaven! I tried the cookies today and they turned out perfect on the first try.

    Jenny, this is Autumn (Peterson) Prince. I know you from the old
    22nd ward! ( I think you were closer to my sisters, Heidi, age)I came across your blog and your baking looks amazing! Anyone who knows me, knows I love to bake! I know you have a sister named kim and your mom was my young women leader(Although I cannot remember her last name for the life of me!) Anyway, it’s good to see you again and I see you married into the old ward as well. They are a great family! You’re going on my favorites links!

    You never cease to amaze me with your cookies. These are so creative and I am excited to try them out with my family.

  4. Greg C

    Those cookies look great. Around here we are forbidden from simply dropping by the classroom to see what is going on. I guess the teachers need time to put away their whips and chains before a parent shows up. Haha

  5. Cara

    Ok, I’m speechless! These look amazing! You’ve been cranking out some great oreo creations lately! I need to try these for sure.

  6. Mary Ann

    Those look fabulous! I wanted to thank you. After looking at your blog for months, you have inspired me to try and create my own recipes without being afraid. Thanks for always being creative and honest. And thanks for taking the time to check out my blog and comment.

  7. Patsyk

    Boy, those cookies look good! I probably do have everything in my pantry to make those right now. 🙂

  8. Lore

    Well my mom would’ve definitely convince me into drinking more milk if these cookies would’ve waited for me next to the glass. So today is the big day, right? Hope everything went well and can’t wait to reed more about your little guy’s first day at school.

  9. Katherine Aucoin

    Wow your cookies look amazing. Good way to get the children off to a fist day of school with a good attitude!

  10. Clumbsy Cookie

    WOW! How can these not be great? Brownies, peanut butter and oreos? That’s like a sweet tooth’s dream come true! Where’s the other half of that cookie you’re dunking? Can I have it?

  11. hot garlic

    Honestly, how do you stay so thin with all of these DECADENT treats around, seriously! I will have to try these after I am done with my ‘diet’. I’m not really on a diet, just trying {and failing} to be good right now!

    They look so, SO good.

  12. Kim A

    What, I didn’t realize Mason started school tomorrow!! Tell him good luck from his best Aunt Kim!! What are these cookies??? Brownies, choc. chips AND oreos….our New York diet starts in a few weeks right??!!

  13. Laura

    I can not believe how sinful all your desserts are. They are totally over the top. Definitely something to impress. I can wait to see your pizza recipe.

  14. Sara

    Oh my gosh…I just made your other Oreo Chocolate Chip cookies last weekend and now you’re throwing these out there too?! 🙂 They look delicious. BTW I was watching Food Network yesterday and saw you on the Building a Better Burger contest! When I realized it was you, I said to my husband, “I read her blog!!” He wasn’t quite as excited as me, but oh well. Your burgers looked very tasty.

  15. bunny

  19. Jeena

    Jenny your cookies are always so great and I love how unique all of your recipes are. These look so amazinga dn when I read the ‘swirled’ part I thought OH YUM!

  20. Jenny

    Hi Lissel,
    I wish that I knew if that substitute would work in the cookies. I would try it out in a half batch, that way if it doesn’t work, you didn’t waste too much. Let me know if it is a success! Best of luck. That is quite the dillema.

    Hi Deanna,
    Hope you enjoy these cookies!

    Thanks Natalie, Enjoy!

    Thanks Kevin!

    Hi Carol,
    Great to have you here. Hope you’ll find some good recipes for you and your family!! These cookies would be my first place to start! Let me know how everything goes.

  21. carol

    OH MY!!!! Jenny-this is my first time posting here—all I can say is WOW what wonderful looking cookies these are! I ca’t wait until I have time to really go through your blog-I’ll most likely be in recipe heaven!
    I saw you on the Food Network “Build A Better Burger” challenges…..I thought you did great!!!! What pressure that must be!
    I’m thinking I’m gonna have a ton of fun reading here! 🙂

  22. Deanna

    Throwing on a baseball cap and headed to the store to get some Oreos. If they have to go to school then they deserve to have some of these ooey gooey delicious cookies (and me too!) I have major back to school blues. Summer is toooooo short!

  23. lissel

    These cookies look amazing. I was wondering if I can substitute a peanut butter alternative (we use a product called SunButter) for the peanut butter? My daughter is allergic to all things peanut. There are quite a few recipes of yours that I have been wanting to try, but quite a few use peanut butter, and well, you can see my dillema. Thanks!
