Deep Dish Gingerbread Oreo-Stuffed Cookies


Usually, in life, if someone were to ask me to rattle off a list of things I hate, I’d have no problem going on and on for a good 72 hours with a long-running list of loathsome things.

Don’t ever ask me what my pet peeves are unless you’re free for the rest of the week.

However, since I’m human and I forget things because I’m getting older and also, I pulled my knee at Target and had to ask a little boy to “please help me grab that tea on the bottom shelf” and he looked at me weird like you’re not even old. Why do I have to help you, fake old person? which only affirms I’m aging quickly, I often forget about things I actually really loathe but forget about since I don’t deal with them often.

Like flashing Christmas lights. Irks me TO. NO. END.

Or going to the doctor and having to be weighed. Does my weight really matter? I mean, I get that weight is associated with a list of problems but omigawsh I’m only here for an ear ache and HOW DID I GAIN TEN POUNDS?

Or buying cards. Birthday, Christmas, anniversary, Valentine’s, sympathy. I seriously LOATHE buying cards.

And conversely, I loathe making cards. I just kinda sorta wish cards could be abolished from life.

I mean, isn’t the gift enough? I understand the concept of cards and I actually enjoy that; however, I’m far too lazy to make a card and that makes me look like a butt since I don’t want to break out the computer paper and sharpies and draw sentimental stick figures for my sister’s birthday. And I hate buying cards because holy cow, have you seen them? They’re SO dorky and awkward.

It’s like, my choices are weird, generic humor that’s awkward because it’s so stupid that it isn’t even funny, otherwise known as grandmas wearing bikini tops or a picture of someone’s grill with “Happy Birthday” etched on each tooth; OR the really super-uncomfortably mushy cards that leave me gagging.

You know, the ones like Brother. Brother, you’re a true confidant. A true friend. You held me when I cried. You hugged me when I smiled. You touched my heart with your brotherly ways. I honestly would rather ingest bleach than buy my brother some corny card like that.

So basically, I left empty-handed. I figure I’ll try my luck elsewhere, or if it comes down to it, just write on a Post-It and call it a day. Thank god for badass gifts to distract from the lack of card because I just can’t even handle it.

Anyways. Cookies. Specifically, cookies stuffed within cookies. What did you expect, homie? We’ve been through this time and time again.

Girl finds gingerbread Oreos. Girl falls in love with aforementioned Oreos. Girl shoves them Oreos into gingerbread cookies and shoves those cookie-covered-cookies into a deep-dish pan because deep dish is my true love.

Girl eats cookies. And girl loves them. You will, too.

Deep Dish Gingerbread Oreo-Stuffed Cookies

1 pkg gingerbread cookie mix, plus ingredients on back of package
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup cinnamon chips
About 12-15 gingerbread Oreos

1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Liberally grease a deep-dish cookie pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, prepare cookies according to package directions; stir in the half teaspoon of cinnamon + cinnamon chips. Drop a heaping Tablespoonful of dough in the bottom of each cavity; press the Oreo in the center of the dough and top with another heaping Tablespoonful of dough. Press to seal around the Oreo, if possible.
3. Bake for approx. 10-14 minutes or until the tops are set and the edges are lightly browned. Allow to cool in the pan briefly–about 5 minutes–before gently removing with a butter knife and allowing to cool on a wire rack.
4. Cookies are best kept up to 2 days, at room temperature, when stored airtight. This makes approx. 12-15 cookies.

Hoooooly cow. If you’re a gingerbread fan, you’ll love these double-trouble deep-dish cookies! The gingerbread Oreo inside gets slightly soft but still maintains that delicious, buttery crunch and creamy filling when baked inside this plush, spicy cookie. They’re truly incredible!

Happy Monday!

  1. Ugh, I hate getting weighed at the doctor. It’s like.. I’m wearing jeans and just came from lunch. Don’t do that to me! Love the cookies.

  2. I want you to know in my imagination I consider us close friends. Because I think you’re hilarious and awesome and obviously we have a lot in common 😛 So bestie why dontcha make and send me some cookies within cookies, k? 😛

  3. Hahahahahaha – guess what I’m posting next Monday?????? The cookie is different though. 🙂

    And OMG the blinking Christmas lights. They need to be outlawed.

  4. I lovvvve gingerbread. And these look AMAZING. I still can’t find gingerbread Oreos though!!

  5. Bahaha, I feel the same way about cards! And I feel the same way about these cookies – holy moly, they look AMAZING!

  6. ooh these look so good!!

  7. I’m sad cuz I don’t have a deep dish cookie pan but I wanna make these! I just bought Oreos last night, too 🙂
    I’m totally with you on the loathing of cards – they are such a waste of money and just get thrown out! And my hubby would agree with your hatred of blinding lights – he HATESSSSS them

  8. Who invented flashing Christmas lights, anyway? Probably the same person who decided greeting cards should be $4.50 A PIECE. You know, I got muffin top pan awhile back that I need to put to good use…but can you believe I still can’t find the gingerbread oreos here? Life is soooo unfair.

  9. Ok, so I need to move to the USA right now to have gingerbread oreos – yuuum! I agree on the flashing christmas lights, totally gives me a headache. Bit of a blogging question from an ignoramus…how do you get the name of the recipe prettily on the photo like that? Thank you 🙂

  10. Dude, why don’t we have gingerbread Oreos? That’s just wrong! But stuffing them in gingerbread cookie dough.. genius. Can’t even begin to imagine just how good these pupsters taste!

    And don’t even get me started on doctors. They don’t weigh me but last time I went to see the doctor, he complained that I’m too skinny and says I don’t eat enough even though I told him I eat large portions and have cake or sweets everyday! He said “have more cake and sweets then”. For reals?

  11. yep. these cookies have everything I love about life in it. gingerbread, oreos, DEEP DISH ANYTHING, cinnamon, and cinnamon chips. You nailed it – i love oreos stuffed inside cookies! You are the queen of oreos – do you have a partnership with them yet?? you need one!

  12. Wow the LAYERS in these – from the gingerbread to the cinnamon to the Oreos. I need them in my life! The cross-section pics just show off all that goodness so well!

  13. Blinking lights and buying cards are 2 of my biggest pet peeves too:-)…just gets my blood boiling even thinking about those horrible things!!! I’m sure an awesome gingerbread Oreo cookie would totally calm down though! Those Oreos are the bomb…I am in love!!!

  14. Back for Seconds says:

    Deep dish anything rocks. When you come to Chicago we are eating deep dish pizza followed by deep dish cookies. Deal? Good.
    Also, they weighed me when I went to the brain dr. Uh, what’s the point of that? Ew.
    I am obsessed with cinnamon chips of late. These seriously sound incredible!

  15. I can’t find these oreos! I’ve been looking for weeks. So sad! I think I would love them. They’d make great truffles too coated in white chocolate!
