Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's an AWESOME cookie idea that my niece, Kristin, brought to me. Chocolate chip cookies with Oreos inside!  Seriously??? Are you kidding me? How brilliant is that?? Why has no one ever thought of this??? Is anyone else thinking "perfect for the cookie swap"?
 I was about to come up with some sort of clever little blurb to write, but seriously, I don't think there's anything else to say except thanx Kristin! And thanx for the picture too!!

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
10 oz bag chocolate chips
1 package Oreo cookies

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars together with a mixer until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl mix the flour, salt and baking soda. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
Using a cookie scoop take one scoop of cookie dough and place on top of an Oreo cookie,take another scoop of dough and place on bottom of Oreo cookie. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until Oreo cookie is enclosed with dough.
Place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet,I'll admit these cookies will expand pretty big so try not to put them too close together, and bake cookies 9-13 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Even though this recipe isn't exactly the same as the Nestle Toll House recipe, I'm guessing you could probably save time and just use the ready made cookie dough. Come to think of it, I wonder what other kinds of cookie dough would work....hmm....I think I might have to try a few!!!
