I know I posted the link for this recipe last week, but I just had to post the full thing here!

I thought of this idea while trying to decide what to guest post about for my friend Susan at She’s Becoming Doughmesstic.

Normally, writing a guest post is no big deal. But if you read her blog, you know that she goes all out for all her recipes, so I had to show up and show up big.

I couldn’t have a healthy twist on the recipe this time.

A few weeks ago, I made an awesome cookies’n’cream pound cake, and I wanted the same cookies’n’cream and sweet vanilla flavors in these blondies, but with a lot more chocolate.

And not just pieces of cookies – I wanted whole cookies layered in the middle of the dough.

I have to say – when these came out of the oven last Sunday afternoon, it was hard to let them cool before cutting into them. 

And they may just be the best baked good I’ve made so far! Full of semi-sweet chips and chocolate sandwich cookies baked until soft in the middle of vanilla-speckled cookie dough…they’re hard to resist.

I always know it’s a keeper when my husband keeps going back for more.

By Sunday night, he had already eaten 3. Now that’s a success.

Cookie Stuffed Blondies

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 12 sandwich cookies, like Newman’s O’s or Oreos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.

Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.

Mix in the flour, salt, and baking powder until all the flour is incorporated into the dough.

Fold in your chocolate chips.

Grease an 8×8 baking dish.

Press ½ of the dough into the bottom of the baking dish.

Lay the cookies on the first layer of dough and press down.

Press the remaining dough on top of the cookies, spreading out to cover the tops of the cookies.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool 15 minutes before cutting.
