- Flour- the bulk of our Oreo crumb, it will give it shape and structure.
- Cornstarch- gives our crumb its crumbly texture!

- Salt- salt really brings out the flavor of chocolate.
- Melted butter- the 'glue' to hold everything together!

How to Make Cookies Without A Mixer
No mixer? No problem!
I know those of you out there that don't have a mixer or have one and don't know how to use it. You think you can't make all of the desserts life has to offer but you are so wrong!!! Making cookie dough is completely possible without one, it just takes a little more elbow grease, and following ingredient temperatures for success!
To make these chocolate Oreo cookies, there are few tips and tricks to make the process as easy as possible:
- Get your butter a little bit softer than room temperature- soften the butter in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until the butter is soft. Having softer butter than normal will make it easier to cream it with the sugar.
- Mix the butter and sugar vigorously together to cream them- you want the sugar and butter combined together completely.
- Use a sturdy wooden spoon to do all the mixing- avoid whisks or smaller spoons, the dough will get firm once everything is added!
- Make sure your eggs are warm- a super cool trick to get them up to temperature is to stick the eggs in a bowl or glass and cover them in hot tap water. Let them sit for 5 minutes to get up to temp! If your eggs are too cold it will make it harder to incorporate them into the butter and sugar.

- Bake at 300 degrees F for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool completely.
How to Make the Cookie Dough
- Increase the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and chocolate chips. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, cream together the soft butter and sugar.
- With the mixer running on low, add the room temperature egg and vanilla extract. Mix until fully combined. Scrape down the bowl and mix again to make sure its completely combined.
- Add the dry ingredients and mix until its almost combined, but there are still some flour streaks. Add the oreo crumb and fold with a spatula. Do not mix it too much, you want it to be able to see some of the white dough so that it marbles with the oreo crumb.
- Scoop the cookie dough onto a parchment lined baking tray. Freeze for 12 minutes.
- Bake for 12-13 minutes, or until the edges of the cookie just start to brown. Bake less for a slightly underbaked middle. Remove and cool on a wire rack before moving. Enjoy!
