There are so many cookie recipes out there, it’s hard to say I have a favorite. I’m a sucker for a fantastic peanut butter cookie recipe (check mine out here). Then there are oatmeal raisin that are so comforting and make the entire house smell like grandma’s. A classic fallback are good ole chocolate chip cookies, which I tend to make the most.

I have creatively named these godly desserts Oreo Reese’s. I don’t want to brag and say that they’re amazing. But I wouldn’t want to lie to you either.
The basic idea is to take an Oreo cookie, fill it with Reese’s Peanut butter Cup filling (from my Homemade Reese’s Bars post!), and dip the cookies in white chocolate.
