Cookie dough Oreo brownies (aka “slutty brownies”) are the most decadent and outrageous bar cookie you’ll ever try: cookies dough on the bottom, brownies on the top, and Oreos in the center. It is the perfect representation of guilty pleasure
FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH LAYER:
7 tablespoons (98g) unsalted butter, room temperature
¾ cup (150g) light brown sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (140g) unbleached all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
FOR THE BROWNIE LAYER:
5 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
6 tablespoons (85g) unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
2 1/4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup (95g) unbleached all-purpose flour
16 regular or double stuff Oreos
TO MAKE THE COOKIE DOUGH LAYER:
Preheat oven to 350°F(177°C). Spray an 8×8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line with tin foil or parchment paper and spray again. Set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer), cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy and light (about 3 minutes).
Beat in the egg and vanilla, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl.
Slowly mix in the flour mixture until combined.
Stir the chocolate chips. Set bowl aside (stick it in the fridge if you like).
TO MAKE THE BROWNIE LAYER:
In a double boiler or microwave, melt semisweet chocolate and butter, stirring often. Once melted, whisk in the cocoa and let cool.
Meanwhile, fit your mixer with a whisk attachment. Whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt, just until combined—about 30 seconds.
Whisk in the warm chocolate mixture. Then, stir in the flour with a rubber spatula. Set aside.
Layer the cookie dough on the bottom of the prepared 9×9 inch baking pan, pressing down to form the bottom of the brownies.
Layer as many Oreos that will fit on top of the cookie dough. No need to overlap.
Slowly pour the brownie batter on top of the Oreo layer and make sure it evenly layers on top.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick insert in the center of the cake comes out clean, if not, let the brownies cook 5 minutes more.
Let the brownies cool before serving!
How to store: Keep cookie dough oreo brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Uncut brownies may be stored in the freezer for up to a month. Defrost in the refrigerator before bringing to room temperature and cutting.
