Cookies 'n Cream Peanut Butter Cookies are my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe filled with chocolate chips, white chocolate, and crushed Oreo pieces!

Social media never ceases to amaze me. In the span of 5 minutes you can ask a question in a group, plan a family reunion, get a recipe for cookies ‘n cream peanut butter cookies, connect with an old friend, see some funny cat pictures, and realize that humanity, for all those good things, is really going down the drain.

Or is that just me?

I don’t know about y’all but I spend a looooot of time on Facebook. Probably more than I should. Actually, I do spend more time on there than is probably recommended by most doctors. I say it’s for work, and most of the time it is. I’m in approximately 1,234 blogger groups (give or take 10) where I ask/answer questions or drop links and pin, tweet, yum, stumble, comment, share, link every day.

I always tell myself: I’m gonna go drop some links, pin some stuff, schedule my FB page for tomorrow and then I’m going to walk away.

But I never do.

I end up scrolling the home feed. Over and over.

And checking my notifications. Oh, the endless notifications.

It’s a problem.

Cookies 'n Cream Peanut Butter Cookies - an easy cookie recipe filled with peanut butter, chocolate, and Oreos.

You may ask why my faith in humanity is shattered after spending 5 minutes on Facebook. Well, for one, it’s because people have no filter. We’ve talked all about that before.

But it also seems that people on (at least my Facebook page) don’t like it when I post non-food things. I mean, I know I’m a food page but I’m also “baking…with a slice of life.” Plus, I have a brain in my head…at last check anyway. Sometimes asking things like “Cookies or Cake??!!!” every day makes me bored. I like to ask other things and provoke conversation.

{FYI…asking about girls wearing bikinis and allowance vs chores will definitely provoke people.}

Both of those conversations were like this for me.

I never learn though because this afternoon, about approximately 2:55pm pacific time I’m posting another parenting question on my FB page. This one will be about overscheduling tween activities. Be sure to come join in the fun!

And while you’re sitting back in your recliner watching the comments that read like a bad train wreck, maybe you should enjoy some cookies. Peanut butter cookies filled with chocolate, white chocolate, and crushed Oreo cookies.

Yes, I did that.

Cookies 'n Cream Peanut Butter Cookies are my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe filled with chocolate chips, white chocolate, and crushed Oreo pieces!

These Cookies ‘n Cream Peanut Butter Cookies cookies start with my favorite peanut butter cookie base that I’ve made several times. Except this time, instead of just making basic peanut butter cookies I added some of my favorite flavors:

Chocolate Chips.

White Chocolate Chips.

And crushed Oreos.

It’s the trifecta of awesome in a peanut butter cookie. It’s a cookies ‘n cream peanut butter cookie!

These make a few dozen cookies. They keep well on the counter for several days, or you can freeze them for cookie emergencies. I don’t chill the dough, but I like to run a fork over the top to give them that traditional peanut butter cookie look.

Because then they scream peanut butter cookies. And the Oreo chunks scream cookies ‘n cream.

And I scream GET IN MY BELLY.

  1. Although I do love social media for staying connected and looking at pictures, I agree with you about how people will do (or say) anything they please on the web. They can hide behind insecurities and true emotions, by appearing differently on the web. For a few months, I went rogue from social media (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) just for that purpose. I think it’s really important to use the tools we’ve been given in a positive way. On that note, bring on all of the cookies. These look like they’d easily become a new favorite of mine. 😀

  2. You are torturing a girl who is still in the thick of Passover. I need these cookies when it all ends in a three days. They are what is missing in my life!
    I hear ya about the dangerous questions. I used to tell my mom not to ask me questions she didn’t want to hear the answers to, but boy, does the Internet bring that to a whole new level!

  3. Thursdays are definitely better with cookies! These sound AMAZING, Dorothy! Love that you combined my two favorites. Pinned!

  4. I totally hear you with getting sucked into social media, before you know it you’ve been on for hours!! Now I can munch on these cookies while I spend endless amount of time on the computer. Peanut butter, white chocolate and Oreos! What a genius combo!

  5. Dorothy. .  ah yes ..  the time suck that is Facebook. What are you gonna do? I figure as long as no small children are being harmed, it’s ok to spend some time there. .  for me, a lot of my friends live in different states so I love it for seeing photos of their kids and seeing what’s going on etc. .  and as for notifications . .  um yeah, I never have that problem. 😛 yeah right! I hear you sister. .  LOVE these cookies!! you are brilliant! 

  6. Love the flavors in this cookie!! And oh facebook…why you gotta be filled with wackos?

  7. Peanut butter and oreos?! YUM! You are asking for trouble bringing up parenting on facebook 🙂 People sure are opinionated about that subject!

  8. I wouldn’t mind trying to see how many of these I could fit in my mouth at once. <3

  9. Ooooohhhh these look DANGEROUS! Just like Facebook. See what I did there? 😉

  10. Everyday is better with a cookie!Facebook is a total time suck. I know this from personal experience.

  11. Oh man, sometimes I just want to scream “JUST GO AWAY AND STOP BEING JUDGEY” but then I’d get people screaming at me more, so I tend to just sit stewing and getting ever crosser in myself, which probably isn’t too good for my blood pressure. Aghhh people. These cookies though. Amazing, what a fabulous combination! I berate myself everyday for being allergic to nuts. It’s just not fair!!!

  12. I can easily see how I could spend countless hours on social media, but my full-time job prevents me from doing that! These cookies look amazing – perfect for cookies and cream and peanut butter lovers everywhere!

  13. Why yes, Thursday is a perfect day for cookies! I could eat about 5 of these right now. 

  14. Everyday is a good day for a cookie! Especially a cookie like these!!  

    I sometimes feel completely overwhelmed and anxious about social media that I have to physically step away from the phone/ipad/laptop because it’s not healthy! But as a blogger sometimes a must. Interacting with readers and other bloggers is what makes a blog! What’s a girl to do? 

    Eat Cookies I suppose!! 

  15. These look incredible! And I feel you on the love/hate relationship with social media! Love to stay connected on it but it can be tough when people use it to shame or guilt others when they don’t agree. And I love it when there’s a mix of food & personal stuff! 

  16. The fact that there’s PB AND Oreos…it’s like two dream flavors merged into one 🙂

    Social Media…biggest timesuck ever, I know !!

  17. It’s hard keeping off of social media…it drives me CRAZY sometimes that I have to spend so much time on it, but that’s the breaks.  And to think I didn’t have a FB account when I started blogging!  Talk about a learning curve. 🙂  These cookies are the best idea ever, but you must know that already!  Love the peanut butter-cookies & cream mash up!

  18. FB scares me!  In fact I don’t have a FB account and I don’t know if it is a good thing or not for my blog.  Pinterest is my time suck, ugh and I am still trying to figure out twitter, double ugh.  I love this flavor combo you have going on in these cookies!!  Yum!!

  19. Every day should involve cookies especially after any FB or social media headaches. These look incredible! Love the PB + Oreos!

  20. Those look SO FUDGY. I need twenty.

  21. I love your non-food stories, so please keep the slice of life. I quit FB a few years ago when I discovered that I liked my friends a little less when I saw their posts. Haven’t missed it at all. 

  22. Wow, these sound terrific! I always enjoy the peanut butter blossom cookies but end up eating the chocolate kiss with one of the bites of cookie and the rest of the cookie plain. What a great idea to use chips and oreos to give every bite some chocolate!!! NEED!!!
    xoxo

  23.  These look really yummy! I just opened a FB recently for my new blog, but I’m not really a fan of it.  

  24. oh my goodness, I read the comments about allowance vs chores yesterday and I was outraged. Some people need to step off!! Or just stuff their pie hole with these cookies and keep their opinions to themselves!!

  25. Yum! Too bad I just used my last package of Oreos the other day, now I have to wait till my next grocery time! Oreos in cookies sound just right!

  26. I honestly think I have better relationships with my friends because I have never done FB (and some of them also don’t do FB).  I am not surprised by what I hear of negativity on it; after all, it was started as a way for socially awkward college guys sitting in their dorm rooms to share ratings they gave the college women. I love this recipe – I can always count on you to create something I have never seen before but looks like a must-have!

  27. Trifecta of awesome indeed! These sound legit!

  28. I totally hear you on the social media thing. I was never active on social media prior to blogging and now it takes this HUGE chunk of time out of my day…it’s addicting. But even more addicting are these cookies n cream cookies….especially the peanut butter part! Pinned! 

  29. I used to be sooo addicted to FB. I never got anything done! Eventually I just had to give it up! I would be so addicted to these cookies, too, but I promise I’ll never give them up 😉

  30. People and their comments on social media never cease to amaze me! You never cease to amaze me either, you come up with the best flavor combos!

  31. These are amazing!  The next batch of cookies made will be these!

  32. Oh man. Social media. Love-hate relationship if there ever was one. You just keep doing what you’re doing. You rock! And these cookies are the bomb. I need these in my life ASAP!

  33. These cookies are absolutely fantastic!!!!  Cookies and cream and peanut butter together are magical!

  34. I love your “controversial” questions! Haha. And these cookies sound great, definitely loving the trifecta going on. I’ve never tried oreos with peanut butter but I definitely want to try these!

  35. I think every day is better with cookies, but especially with these cookies. I mean peanut butter and oreo are one of my favorite combos in the whole world!

  36. Any day that includes a cookie with peanut butter and Oreo is a good day!!  And I will never understand why people are so vocal and mean on social media!  It’s frustrating some days.  I clearly need more cookies…

  37. These look so yum! I love the combo of cookies and cream and pb! Really reminds me of oreos and PB, my fave trashy dessert 🙂

  38. I love this combination!  Cookies and cream and peanut butter in a cookie is just plain awesome!  Pinned!

  39. lol I think we all fall into the FB hole! I love how much engagement you get with those convos on your page-so fun!

    and these cookies are ahhhmazing. I love the pb + oreo combo and they look delicious!
