Pumpkin-stuffed Oreos

pumpkin stuffed oreos

Why have plain old pumpkin pie, when you can have these Oreos- filled with pumpkin and dipped in white chocolate?!?

Admission: I don’t like pumpkin pie. I never have and probably never will. I don’t like pumpkin spice anything either. The best way to ruin a Starbucks drink is to add pumpkin spice. Ew.

So I made these for you. All of you lovers of pumpkin out there! I also distributed these to as many pumpkin-addicted friends as possible, to get their thoughts. They LOVED them. I like that they are cute. Cute is always good.

Like that photo, pumpkin people??? 🙂 I bet you do…. If you love pumpkin pie- you will go crazy over these fun little cookies!

Here is how we made them (printable recipe here)

INGREDIENTS: (makes about 20 cookies- but see notes at end of recipe)

  • 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin
  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 eggs 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1-2 boxes of Oreo Thins in vanilla (see notes)
  • 1-2 bags of Wilton’s Candy Melts in white (see notes)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
  • Place pumpkin, condensed milk, TWO eggs (save one), pumpkin spice, and salt into a medium mixing bowl and blend well using a whisk.
  • Pour into a baking dish (a pie plate works perfectly!)
  • Bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes- until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
  • Remove from oven, spoon into a clean mixing bowl and blend until fairly smooth (it’s pumpkin, so it won’t be creamy smooth- but without big lumps).
  • Freeze for 30 minutes- until chilled through.
  • While baking /freezing pumpkin, make pie crust toppers.
  • Unroll pie crust and use a small cookie cutter to cut shapes out. Place these on a parchment paper-covered cookie sheet.
  • Separate remaining egg and keep just the white. Use a brush to coat top of each pie piece with egg-white. (I added a bit of orange and green food coloring in separate bowls to give them a hint of color- but this is optional!)
  • Bake at 375F for 7-8 minutes. Keep an eye on them! Mine got a little too brown.  I just popped these in while my pumpkin was still baking. Cool on counter.
  • Place 1/2 of Oreo Thins on a small cookie sheet. 
  • Scoop cooled pumpkin on top of each and gently press second Oreo on top.

  • Freeze for at least 30 minutes (until pumpkin in the center is fairly hard).
  • Melt Candy Melts in a bowl the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until smooth.
  • Set a pumpkin-stuffed Oreo into candy melts and spoon over the top and sides. 
  • Remove using a fork. Tap against edge of bowl to drain excess away and gently slide onto parchment paper. 
  • Before candy hardens, place a pie piece on top and sprinkle with a little pumpkin spice seasoning. 
  • Allow candy to fully harden ( a couple of hours).
  • Serve in a pie plate- or bag them up in cute cello bags with ribbon. 
  • Enjoy!

Pumpkin pie oreos

My thoughts: Honestly, these take a little time. You bake a pie and then turn it into cookies. Everyone loved the HUGE amount of pie filling in each cookie- but if you haven’t done much dipping in chocolate before, I highly recommend you get a second box of Oreo Thins and put less in between each cookie. The hardest part of this process was coating such a tall cookie in white chocolate. If I made these again I would use less pumpkin filling to make that easier. If you do this, you will need a second bag of candy melts as well.

See… half that amount would still be enough! Once these were hardened, I placed them in little cello bags and tied them with ribbon. They were still yummy (to my pumpkin loving friends) several days later. Because of the moist pumpkin filling, I recommend you serve these fairly soon after making them though. Within a few days. Enjoy!!!  ~r

Cookie Butter Stuffed Oreos

cookie-butter-oreos3

A creamy layer of chocolate chip cookie butter is a wonderful surprise inside these easy chocolate cookies!

I may be out of the loop on things, but somehow I missed this whole craze over COOKIE BUTTER. When I was in the Czech Republic about a year ago, my friend Angie (the best gift-giver!) sent me home with a collection of European treats. Nestled in with the coffees and chocolates, there was this jar of “stuff” (all the labels were in Czech) and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I know that peanut butter is hard to find in Eastern and Central Europe- so I knew it wasn’t that- but it was close… it was butter- but not made out of peanuts..made out of COOKIES!!!!! Seriously. I fell in love.

Cookie Butter!

Then I found it at Wal Mart. Here. In Indiana. #smile!!!

So, I’ve been stuffing Oreo Thins with all sorts of things over the past few months. Marshmallows….Key Lime Pie…I can’t stop. I have A LOT more ideas. This is just one more. (Prepare yourself…)

Cookie butter stuffed Oreos

These are simply….delicious. I shouldn’t have been surprised that adding cookie butter to Oreos would create such a yummy combination- but I was. The combination is such a unique flavor- and I’m not kidding you- unbelievably good!

Plus they are SUPER easy to make.

Here’s how we did it: (printable recipe available here)

INGREDIENTS: (makes about 25 cookies)

  • One box of Oreo Thins Chocolate cookies
  • One jar of crunchy cookie butter (I’ve loved every brand I have tried, but I used Lotus for these)
  • One cup of mini chocolate chips
  • One and 1/2 bags of Wilton’s Candy melts in dark chocolate
  • A little bit of milk chocolate candy melts to make stripes on top (or any sort of sprinkles you’d like to add to make these for any season!)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Set half of Oreo cookies on a small tray or sheet that will fit in your freezer.
  • Mix jar of cookie butter and mini chips in a small bowl.
  • Scoop or spoon cookie butter on top of each Oreo and press a second Oreo on top to make a sandwich.

  • Freeze for about 30 minutes.
  • Melt Candy Melts in microwave, in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  • Take 3 or 4 cookies at a time out of freezer and carefully dip in melted chocolate, using a fork to tap excess chocolate off and sliding the bottom of the cookie along the edge of the bowl to remove excess from the bottom.

  • Set on parchment paper to harden.
  • Add sprinkles (if desired) before chocolate hardens, or after it hardens, drizzle or pipe a little bit of contrasting chocolate across the top of each cookie.
  • Enjoy!

Oreo Thins dipped in Chocolate

My thoughts: Mmmmmmm! These cookies were eaten up so fast- and I got back so much positive feedback on them- everyone loved them! The only tricky part might be dipping them (if you haven’t dipped things in chocolate before). The trick is to tap off excess chocolate and to remove excess off the bottom. If you aren’t feeling confident in your dipping skills, try just dipping half of the cookie and leaving half of that yummy cookie butter visible! I hope you get a chance to try these!!!  Enjoy!!  ~R

Key Lime Cookies

Layers of cookie, key lime pie filling, and white chocolate make these an irresistibly refreshing summer treat!

So. You know those new “healthier” Oreo Thins cookies? I found a way to make them unhealthy. Still a reasonable indulgence, but not the super-low calorie tiny sliver of a cookie they were created to be.

I present: Key Lime Layer Cookies!!!!

Creamy Key Lime filling sandwiched between two Oreo Thins and dipped in white chocolate. YUM!!! These are incredibly easy to put together and such a delicious, creative, and beautiful treat!

Key Lime Cookies4

Here’s how we made them: (printable recipe)

INGREDIENTS: (makes 20 cookies)

  • 3/4 cup of key lime juice (I squeezed ’em!)
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 package of Oreo Thins in vanilla
  • 1 bag of Wilton’s Candy Melts in white
  • Colored sugar (if desired for decorating)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Combine lime juice, condensed milk and egg together in a small mixing bowl.
  • Pour into a small baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Spoon into a cool bowl and chill in freezer for 30 minutes to cool.
  • While cooling, set 1/2 box of vanilla Oreo Thins out on a baking sheet that will fit into your freezer.
  • After lime filling is chilled, stir and spoon into a large zip-top bag. Clip a corner off and pipe filling on top of each Oreo- not quite going to the edges.
  • Gently set an Oreo Thin on top of the filling. Don’t press too hard or the filling will come out on the edges. Use up all the cookies in the box.

  • Gently slide this baking sheet into the freezer and freeze for 1 hour.
  • Melt Wilton’s Candy Melts in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between until smooth.
  • Take chilled cookie and place it into melted chocolate. Quickly spoon over the top and sides.
  • Lift the cookie with a fork and tap on side of bowl until excess drips away. Slide bottom edge of cookie along side of bowl to get rid of excess on bottom and set on parchment paper to harden.
  • Repeat with remaining cookies. You may want to keep cookies in freezer before dipping, and only take maybe 4 or 5 out at a time to work on.
  • Decorate as desired. If you want sugar sprinkles, add these before the candy melts harden back up. 
  • Enjoy!

Key Lime Cookies2

My thoughts: These are easy and fun to make, and they keep for up to a week in the fridge! You will have a little pie filling left at the end, but you could get a little more white chocolate and a few more cookies to use it up -if you want. I’d guess you would have enough filling for another 8-10 cookies. Another helpful hint- make sure these are cold when you dip them, and don’t linger and let them sit for a long time in that melted chocolate. Sprinkle sugar on top while they are still melted. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!!  ~r
