cookies & creme cookies.

want to make your man love you even more? sure you do. so, bake him cookies.
i could think of a few more things too, but cookies are definitely up there. and i don't mean box cookies either. i'm talking flour on your nose, brown sugar on your shirt, & egg whites in your hair kinda cookies. from scratch.

 lee's favorite dessert is anything oreo based, so when i felt like getting my baking on, it was oreos that made the cut.

{word to the wise: make sure you put enough flour in these. because it calls for a lot of butter, you need to make sure your dough is dough-y enough. if you don't, they will end up like my first batch which ran all over the pan, ended up spackled buttery mess & in the trash. hey, i never claimed to be a baker. nor did i claime these were healthy cookies.}

2 eggs
tablespoon each of baking soda & baking powder
a small dash of salt
3/4 cup of butter; tablespoon of vanilla
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of sugar
2 & 1/2 to 3 cups of flour (use your judgement. i'm kinda like paula deen with ingredient measurements)
white chocolate chips (i used a whole bag, but would use less next time)
12 smashed oreos
cream together the butter, brown sugar, & sugar together. add in the 2 eggs + vanilla & combine completely. & in a separate bowl, stir together the dry ingredients - the flour, baking soda, baking powder, & salt.

toss in your oreos & white chocolate chips; add flour if it's not a thick dough. 

spoon 1.5 inch balls onto a baking sheet sprayed with anti-stick spray & bake for 7 minutes. you definitely want to take them out before they're completely done so they can finish baking outside of the oven.
