Sometimes I scroll through my Instagram feed and end up feeling as uncreative as I do when I look through Pinterest. Like…those mini raspberry souffles? Did you take the week off to make those? Because they look deliciously time consuming.
Oh, you repainted and rearranged your darling little trailer? That’s nice.
Wait a second…you grew, picked, and ate those tomatoes in that ratatouille you just made? Yeah, uh, me too.
But then these brownies showed up on my feed and I thought, I definitely have a hot second for those.
There is nothing modest about these brownies. They are the brownies of the night. Original name for these brownies is “slutty brownies”, but I felt that was/is a little too grimy. Maybe? Let’s not get out of control, now.
First, a layer of cookie dough. The fun don’t stop here ya’ll.
Then a hefty layer of these. “Milk’s favorite cookie”. Because they’ve obviously asked Milk, whoever he is.
Lord have mercy, we are going to top that cookie dough and oreo layers with some brownie batter! Juuuuuust do it.
It’s so reckless, so right.
Let me tell you…these taste. so good. Possibly the moistest brownie I’ve ever experienced, as well as the most interesting. All the layers are fun, and the Oreo is an especially nice surprise. I’m really excited about adding this to my recipe collection. So excited!
You can also do this with them. Oho! Yes you can.
Get with this brownie. No regrets.
“COOKIE DOUGH MEETS OREO MEETS BROWNIE” BROWNIES
recipe from whatsgabycooking.com
makes 1 9X9 inch pan
For the cookie dough layer:
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
For the Oreo layer:
1 package of Oreo cookies
For the brownie layer:
10 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups white sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9X9 inch pan with foil, and spray the foil with cooking spray. Set aside
Make the cookie dough layer:
In a medium bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract, beating for 1 minute. Add in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt all at once, beating on low until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Set aside.
Make the brownie layer:
In a medium saucepan over medium low heat, melt the butter. Add the sugar and cocoa powder once the butter is melted. Whisk to combine and remove from heat. Add the salt, vanilla, and eggs and continue to whisk until the eggs are combined. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Set aside.
In your pan, spread cookie dough, pressing down to form an even layer. Next, layer as many oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need to overlap oreos, one layer is plenty! Then pour brownie batter over oreos and cookie dough, spreading down evenly with a spatula.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, testing the center with a knife to see if it is done and the knife comes out clean. If the knife still has wet batter attached to it, bake for a few more minutes. A few crumbs is okay, because the brownies will continue to cook once taken out of the oven.
Allow to cool before cutting, or else you will get a gooey mess (unless that’s what you want).
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
