I don’t watch a lot of TV but lately, when I do, I have been inspired!!!! They were talking about adding layers of chocolate chip cookies, Oreos and brownies, all in the same cookie bar. Yes, they had my attention! This is my version. They are as good as they look.
Cookie dough ingredients:
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9×13 pan
  • Combine butter, vanilla and brown sugar, until creamy and fluffy.
  • Add eggs to the mixture and add the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. Pour cookies into the greased pan.

Place a layer of Oreo cookies on top of the cookie dough. Last step, whip up the brownie ingredients and make a layer over the Oreos.
