Chocolate Chip Cookie Marries Oreo Dough




About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.

The cute Le Creuset Mini Cocottes are a prize in the Power tool contest that I would use often and was the inspiration behind this instructable. You might be asking who would use a shop tool in the kitchen anyway? Well, there have been times I could have used a power tool in the kitchen and several times we did! I was visiting my daughter who at the time did not have a mixer and I wanted to cook something. The other times were when we were helping my son build a small house in the middle of no-where and were limited on how many things we packed for the trip because of all the supplies we took with us. We made Thanksgiving Dinner using a drill. I wanted to make something for the contest that had culinary appeal even though I used a shop drill.

Dominique Ansel is a French Chef living in New York who invented the cookie shot just a few months ago. He got his inspiration because he recently tried his first Oreo cookie dipped in milk and thus the cookie shot was born. This month he was in Austin Texas promoting his new cookbook. This recipe is definitely a keeper and Dominique is a genius!

Let me show you how I combined these two recipes to make a birds nest, cookie shot, and an ice cream cone that is sure to give you a sugar fix. One can have their cookie and dough at the same time! Bring your drill and lets make some cookie dough.


Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

This is what you will need:


For the cookie forms:


1 Cup Shortening
1/3 Cup white sugar
1/2 Cup light brown sugar
1 Large egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract more if you add to the glass of milk
2 Cups all purpose flour sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Cup mini chocolate chips do not substitute
1 Cup Magic Shell or melted chocolate ( I used Hersey's, it worked but I recommend something different)
1 1/2 Cups milk
Sprinkles optional
Candy eggs optional


Cookie filling:


1/2 Cup softened butter
1/3 Cup brown sugar
3/4 Cup powdered sugar
8 Oz Cream cheese softened
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 Cup crushed mini Oreo cookies but regular will work
1/4 Cup mini chocolate chips do not substitute these




Power drill with paint stir attachment or a kitchen mixer

You will also need measuring cups, spoons, bowls, cookie sheet, parchment paper, straws optional, scissors, pencil, shot glass or something to form the cookies into desired shape. I tried shot glasses but they were too small so I tried a small juice glass and a custard dish which worked very nicely. The shot glass worked great for the ice cream cone shape.
 Remember to charge the batteries on the drill if it has batteries.







Step 2: Nest Filling

Measure ingredients:

1/2 Cup softened butter but not too soft
1/3 Cup brown sugar
8 Oz Cream cheese softened again not too soft
3/4 Cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla extract
3/4 Cup crushed Oreos
1/4 Cup mini chocolate chips do not substitute

Step 3: Mix Filling



Combine all the ingredients except the chocolate chips in a mixing bowl.
Mix until well incorporated using a power drill or kitchen mixer.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Chill until later.

Step 4: Cookie Mold Recipe

Measure Ingredients:


1 Cup shortening
1/3 Cup white sugar
1/2 Cup light brown sugar
1 Egg yolk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 Cups flour sifted with the salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Cup mini chocolate chips Do not substitute
1 Cup Magic shell or a chocolate that is suitable for melting and setting up when chilled
1 1/2 Cups milk he added some vanilla to the milk shots but I did not want to.







Step 5: Combine Ingredients for the Nest Cookie



Cream shortening and sugars together
Add yolk and mix thoroughly
Slowly add the salt and sifted flour mixture and mix thoroughly
Fold in chocolate chips
Chill for thirty minutes.


This cookie mixture will be quite crumbly but moist enough to form nicely to the mold.



Step 6: Chocolate

While you are waiting for the dough to chill:

Melt the chocolate if not using the Magic shell.

Step 7: Prep the Molds

The first time I made the molds I did not use parchment paper and they were a little difficult to remove without breaking but I did do it. The dough raised more than I wanted so the second time I made them, I pressed a lot more firmly and the results were much better.

Make the mold pattern as shown:

Make a pattern for the molds using the parchment paper and cut them out.
Spray the molds generously with Pam.
Insert the paper pattern inside the mold and remove any wrinkles.
Press the cookie dough into the molds about 1/4 inch thick pressing the dough firmly making sure there are no weak spots or holes. I believe this is important to help prevent the dough from rising too much.
Chill for 30 minutes.
Then bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes until brown but not over brown.
Allow them to cool, then remove them from the mold carefully by giving the sides a slight tap.

Chill for 30 minutes.

Step 8: Chocolate Coating


Lightly coat the inside of the mold with the Magic shell and chill for 20 minutes.

Step 9: Decorate


I molded the cookie dough in the shape of a nest in my hand and place the nest in the center of the cookie, then I decorated it with sprinkles and candy eggs.

Step 10: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

The drill paint stir thingy worked great but I have to admit that the long shaft on it made it difficult for me to hold and take pictures. But in a pinch this is the way to go. A person may use an electric mixer beater instead but I liked the weirdness of using the paint stir thingy for the fun of it.

This was an enjoyable project. I hope it inspires you to make this recipe for your next party or family cooking day. I sent over a few of these to my neighbor and she called requesting more. We can't eat a lot of sugar so I usually gift my neighbors because I value their opinion. The cookie dough recipe taste exactly like cookie dough. So yummy.
 If you think it is worth your vote please come back and vote for the power tool contest, I would be most grateful.


I wish to thank Instructables, our sponsors, contributors, and all my visitors for making this a great place to share. Thanks for stopping by and do have a safe and happy day!
