Oreo! What a great name it is. The name itself makes us go drooling. I had this wish of baking something special for Oreo lovers. Hence, I came up with Chocolate Oreo overloaded cookies. Because I personally love Oreo at any time of the day.
Let me dive into my childhood memories of Oreo. When I was a kid, I used to go to my neighbors house to play. One fine day, I saw a little girl at their house who has come all the way from Chicago. She was holding this biscuit which looked black outside and white in the inside. As a kid, I thought anything in black tastes awful. But, that little girl seemed to enjoy it really well. She handed me one of those and I tasted it hesitantly. Fell in love with the biscuit instantly. I asked what is it and that is the first time I heard Oreo.
Eagerly went back home and I asked my mom about Oreo. She said only those who stay in United states get those and we do not get it in India. I was pretty disappointed. Then on-wards, whenever someone announces about going to U.S, I would ask them to get Oreo. That is how my love for Oreo started. As I grew up and as the days passed by, Oreo came to India and I still love it sincerely. So, I thought of combining both of my loves – baking and Oreo. Thus, Chocolate Oreo overloaded cookies were born.
