Cookies and Cream Cookie Pops
Cookie pops! These are a first on the blog. Exciting stuff, I tell you.
Summer is all about popsicles, right? So how about a cookie popsicle, eh?
If you're still wondering what a cookie pop is, it's a cookie that's attached to a popsicle stick, making the cookie way more cute and fun to consume and a great gift idea or perfect addition to any package.
But these are not just any old cookies attached to popsicle sticks. (Although, technically, you could use any old cookie recipe to make cookie dough popsicles.) These cookies are special. These are cookies and cream cookies. Another first on the blog.
Well, I did post a cookies and cream blondies recipe a while back. But this recipe is different. Because those blondies contained butter. And these cookies and cream babies are dairy-free. These cookies use oil instead. Which also means this is a one-bowl recipe, with no machines for creaming butter involved. AW YEAH.
But did I even explain what "cookies and cream" actually means? You probably figured it out, if you've ever had cookies and cream ice cream, or if you've had a look at these photos here.
But in case you didn't. "Cookies and cream" means these cookies are chock-full of crushed Oreo cookies and white chocolate chips.
We all know how delicious Oreo cookies are. And how amazing white chocolate is. But adding the two into a rich cookie dough? FLAVOR EXPLOSION. A unique and addictive flavor explosion.
I mean, it's cookies stuffed into a cookie dough! Double the cookies, double the deliciousness.
Also, these cookies are so soft and chewy with a slight crisp on the edges. And they're so easy and quick to make. And they're so adorable and kid-friendly. And they're perfect when packaged in a cute little box, as depicted in these photos. Best gift ever, amiright?
Soft and chewy. Rich and dense. Dairy-free and easy. Quick and one-bowl. Unique and cute AF. Cookies and cream cookie pops - I like you a lot.
Cookies and Cream Cookie Pops
Yield: about 26 cookies
½ cup oil (canola, vegetable, or melted coconut)
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups packed flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup white chocolate chips
6 Oreo cookies, coarsely crushed
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil and sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix vigorously until smooth.
3. Pour flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt over wet ingredients and stir everything together until just combined. Mix in chocolate chips and Oreos last.
4. Round medium/large pieces of dough between palms and space out onto prepared baking sheets. Insert popsicle sticks into the centers of the cookies.
5. Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes, until bottoms are just golden. Let cookies sit and firm up around popsicle sticks on the baking sheets for about 10 minutes before moving them.
