Cake Batter Oreo-Stuffed Funfetti Cookies

Today’s post is super special, guys!

Today, I am celebrating a baby.

*points to self* No, not my baby. Are you kidding me? I become unreasonably snotty if I get less than seven hours of sleep a night AND I can still justify spending an inordinate amount of money on clothes. There’s no way I could raise a child. I meaaaan..

Today, I’m celebrating the future baby to the adorable Mandy at Mandy’s Recipe Box!!

Mandy is about to bring in a special little bun into her life, and the coolest thing of all is she’s waiting to find out the gender until it’s born!

I mean, call me old-fashioned, but a baby’s gender is like, one of the true surprises in life. My parents didn’t know the gender of me and my siblings, and they believe most parents shouldn’t (though I totally understand how OMGSOTEMPTING it’d be to find out). But how cool will it be when she gives birth and it’s a complete surprise?! I’m SO excited for her and her family!

And I’m SO excited that I was asked to participate in a virtual baby shower for Mandy! She is such a sweet mama and awesome friend, and I’m so glad I got to meet her in this crazy world of blogging!

Mandy Baby Shower

So while I don’t really want to compare cookies to baby genders, I thought it’d be cool to stuff some Funfetti flavored cookies with two different types of Oreos … that way, from the outside, you’ll have no idea what flavor lurks inside the plush, cake-y cookie until you take a bite! Will it be stuffed with Cake Batter flavored Oreos, or Cake Batter flavored Golden Oreos? Another true surprise, and a perfect treat for a mommy-to-be and her sparkly, fun baby shower :)

Funfetti-flavored cookies stuffed with more cookies!
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp butter extract/emulsion
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup sprinkles
  • About 12 cookies each Cake Batter flavored Oreos and Cake Batter flavored Golden Oreos
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, soda, cornstarch and salt, and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until creamy, about a minute. Beat in the egg and extracts to combine.
  2. Gradually add flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating well after each addition. Once dough has come together, stir in the sprinkles. Chill the dough for 30 mins-1 hour.
  3. While the dough chills, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with silicone liners or mist lightly with cooking spray. Once dough has chilled, drop rounded Tablespoonfuls of dough on the baking sheets about 1″ apart. Gently press an Oreo in the center of the dough ball and top it with another rounded Tablespoonful of dough. Use your fingers to very carefully enclose the Oreo with dough. Bake for approx. 10-12 minutes, rotating pans halfway through bake-time, or until light golden in color and centers are just about set–they’ll continue cooking on the baking sheet.
  4. Cool the cookies on the sheets about 5-10 minutes before carefully transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Store cookies airtight, at room temperature, for about 5 days.

 

DSC_0239These cookies are SO delicious and SO fun! The combination of the vanilla, butter and almond extract lends an authentic cake battery taste to each bite of these buttery, tender cookies without using a cake mix for that signature flavor. And if you haven’t tried those Cake Batter-flavored Oreos yet, you MUST go to your nearest Target/Walmart ASAP and stock up! They’re INSANELY good, and once stuffed in between these soft, chewy cookies, they make for an awesome, crunchy surprise!

I’m not the only one celebrating Mandy and her new behbeh. Be sure to stop by these other blogs to see their sweet treats for Mandy!! Congratulations, Mandy! We love you and are SO happy for you!! <3 ((hugs))

  1. omg hayley! they look and sound incred!! i’ve seen oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies before all over the internet but never stuffed into cake batter cookies. leave it to you girl. you love baking with oreos!! I need to do it more often!

  2. I love this idea. In a way the big, stuffed cookies look almost like a baby bump even ;) Here in Thailand they have strawberry filled oreos, wouldn’t that be cool to represent a baby girl. For boys I guess the purplish color of blueberry sundae (yes! thats an oreo filling flavor here) would have to do.

  3. Awwww this is so adorbs!!! Love the lil surprise!

    (I totally don’t wanna be surprised when I’m preggers, but Michael and my mom do so I feel all outnumbered, *sigh* lol I JUST WANNA KNOW WHAT STUFF TO BUY! :P)

  4. Hayley you rock! These cookies look BOMB! Thanks for celebrating Mandy’s shower with us!!

  5. This makes me want to eat some of those vanilla oreos. Thanks a lot, Hayley.

  9. Shazam! Those are some little bits of awesomeness right there. So fun to celebrate an amazing woman! Well done – so yummy!

  10. Hayley…you’re a genius! I love those cake batter oreos and I’m sure they are incredible stuffed inside a sprinkle-y cookie!!

  12. Aimee @ ShugarySweets says:

  13. Back for Seconds says:

    This is almost as good a surprise as finding out the gender of your baby, haha! They look awesome, girl. I will take 6 please :)

  14. These are such fun cookies! What a perfect idea for a baby shower!

  18. Omg, these are AWESOME!

  19. These are so festive and I love that they are stuffed with oreos!

  20. holy sweet tooth! looks great – and wow, where have *I been – the blog looks amazing!!! LOVE IT

  21. Those look awesome!! Just a quick question for a newbie, what is butter extract/emulsion? Do I buy it in the baking area?

    • Hi Catherine! Yes, butter extract can be found on the baking aisle near the vanilla extract. It works the same as vanilla extract. However, emulsion is thicker and more concentrated (almost like a syrup consistency) and usually, emulsions can be found at specialty food stores like Sur La Table, Michael’s, even places like World Market. Check ROSS or TJ Maxx–you’d be surprised how many times I’ve found vanilla bean paste and emulsions there for cheap!!

  22. scrappinginontario says:

    Those look amazing! Can you please tell me where to find butter extract/emulsion? Thanks!

  23. I just made these today and dear lord. . .they’re ridiculously good. I used whole wheat flour instead (making it healthy, right. . .?!?!) of white flour and about 73ml of apple sauce instead of an egg a to and Smart Balance butter to make it vegan. It just so happens Oreos are vegan as well. Glorious!

    The batter in these is so soft and chewy. I don’t know if the Oreo was supposed to get all soft as well, but it did. It gives it a nice creamy chocolatey taste in mid-bite. Yesssss.

      Hey Justin! SO smart to make them vegan — how awesome is that?! And I totally didn’t know Oreos were vegan; how awesome! Thanks for the tips — I definitely want to try out your vegan version. Mm!
