Parent Trap Cookies

Do you remember the move, The Parent Trap, and the introduction they gave us all to the combination of peanut butter and oreos? That movie was a childhood favorite and I forever ate this combo. I decided that these two food items would make a great cookie. These Parent Trap cookies are a peanut butter cookie with crushed oreos, most likely the best combination a cookie could possibly be.

Tips & Tricks to making these the best cookies

  • Can you use a different flour for these cookies?
    • Yes you definitely can. Changing the flour in the recipe may cause the cookie texture to be a bit different. Remember too that certain flours soak up more water. For example, when you cook with coconut flour, you typically need to add more liquid to the batter because coconut flour soaks up a lot of liquid and your batter can come out dry.
  • Can you use any oreos?
    • Yes, you can always use regular oreos if you prefer. I used a gluten free oreo from Goodie Girl Foods and they worked just as well!
  • Can you use a different sugar for these cookies?
    • Yes, you can substitute the coconut sugar out for any sugar you prefer to use. Just remember that some sugars tend to be sweeter than others, so you may want to adjust the amount you put in!
