Yes, it's another Oreo recipe. You'd think I live and breathe Oreos in this home, but this one wasn't my fault. You see, it all started when my husband walked in the door with a grocery bag full of Peanut Butter Oreos, and Lemon cookies. Two packaged cookies. What am I, the joyful baker, supposed to think?
Well, what I thought was that I could turn those Oreos into something really good. And I thought I was a genius for tweaking Picky Palate's Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip cookies and making them peanut butter. But then I decided to google it and found that I wasn't as much of a genius as I originally thought. Runs With Spatulas had already made these. Been there, done that. And she even had the most awesome slideshow of a cookie eating an oreo I've ever seen. OK, it might be the only slideshow I've ever seen of a cookie eating an oreo, but still. It was awesome.
Knowing I wasn't a genius didn't stop me from making these cookies. And enjoying them. A lot.

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 package Peanut Butter Oreo cookies
Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time until combined.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix into the wet ingredients slowly until just combined. Put batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
To assemble the cookies, take one tablespoon of cookie dough and place on the top of an Oreo cookie. Take another tablespoon of dough and place on the bottom of the Oreo cookie. Form the dough around the Oreo and seal the edges together. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a criss-cross pattern.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies begin to brown around the edges. Do not over-bake.
