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 can’t believe school has started there already – I think it starts on the 18th here, but it seems like when I was a kid, it started the end of August/beginning of September!

    This would be a great snack for a school lunch. Or just a great snack for me!

    I cam across your blog and I’m so glad I did! When I first saw this recipe my first reaction was that the cookies sound interesting but not for me. Then I started thinking about it and decided to give it a try. WOW! I am so glad I did, these are my new favorites! I don’t think I will ever make plain old peanut butter cookies again. THANK YOU!!

    Where in the world does school start the first week of August? If I had to go back to school this early, I’d NEED a dozen or so of these cookies, just to get me out the door.

    You come up with the best cookie / dessert ideas! Your kids are quite lucky to have you as a mom 🙂

    Can’t believe that school’s starting already. Where did the summer go?

    I am wanting some of these so bad right now it actually does hurt, lol.

    Wow, I can not believe summer has passed already and I did not think about it until you said it was school time. In TN we never started school until the end of August, woo lucky us.

    OMG! I just gained six pounds looking at these cookies. Mouth-watering.
    And your photos are excellent!
