So I once had an unusually weird internal med rotation where I felt like I couldn't connect with any of the residents or attendings so I decided to use my ultimate weapon to impress- these cookies. They may not know my name when they pass me in the hospital but they all remember me as the girl who brought in "those cookies." I SWEAR by these cookies.

They may look weird but if you seriously want to impress, make these cookies for your preceptor, residents, nurses, or that cutie you've been eyeing (LOL).

I modified this recipe from So here we go:

Mint Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes: A LOT OF COOKIES. Probably around 30ish.

Parchment paper
2 sticks of softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
18 frozen sliced pieces of Mint Oreo Cookies
1.5-2 cups chocolate chips (preferably dark or semi-sweet) depending on your taste

1. Let the butter come to room temperature. I'd suggest taking the butter out of the fridge about an hour before baking. 
2. Put the Oreo cookies in the freezer at least half an hour before baking.

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Take the oreos out of the freezer, and slice them (gently) into sixths. Discard any small crumbs (nom nom!) because crumbs will make your cookie a grayish tint.

2. Cream butter and sugars until well combined in a large bowl. Do not over-beat if using a hand mixer. Add eggs and vanilla until well mixed.

3. Place flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl and stir (preferably with a whisk) to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients (in thirds) and stir in oreos and chocolate chips until just combined careful enough not to break the oreos. 

4. Scoop about half a golfball-size piece of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place dough in freezer for 3-4 minutes. Bake for 9-10 minutes until slightly golden brown on the sides. *The cookies should look and feel like they're underbaked. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack (if you can resist it!).

And that's it! Hope you guys win over some hearts :)
