A call to all UK and Irish bloggers. I've been getting pretty frustrated recently, due to when I'm pouring over food pictures on the blogs that I follow I suddenly realise most of them are American. So those Cinnamon chip, candy cane oreos and nutter butters are impossible for me too get my hands on (Sad Face) And the price to order a couple of chocolate bars is, well, frankly not worth it, anyone else have the same problem? Well the wonderful Lisa over at Sweet 2 Eat Baking has a really fab idea. Since you can bulk buy these yummy goodies hows about we start up a bloggers co-op!!! She would create a page on her blog where you could decide what you fancied and everyone could group together for the order, sharing the costs. Possibly at the beginning of each month. It's just the beginnings of an idea but if you fancy being involved contact either Lisa or myself via email. Anyways, I digress. Yum, Yum, Yum. I love Oreos, Plain and simple. Being that it is one of the very very few American products available over here in Ireland, I can't get enough of them. So when I waltzed into the local shop yesterday (Yup I don't just walk I waltz) and spotted chocolate cream (or creme as it actually said on the packet) filled oreos (OMG Yes) I knew I had to give them a go. So after sampling a couple (maybe 4) just to make sure they were worthy of baking, I confirmed that they were good enough and started to think of what I could do with them. And then it dawned on me, after my successful stuffing of Snowballs with Bounty I was dying to have a go at seeing what else I could stuff. So I ask you to close your eyes and imagine this. What would happen if a pie and a cookie had a baby?? A pookie of course. And naturally you have to stuff that pookie with more cookie. Now technically a Pookie is a pie covered in cookie, but everything is open to interpretation. Right? I've labelled these little beauties Pookie just because they look like little pies and when you're eating them it feels like you're eating a pie. Makes sense right. These are like mini pies that don't need a fork to be enjoyed. With a lovely crispy top and soft, chewy cookie 'crust', these are pretty fantastic. And then you take another (huge) bite and your suprised by the appearance of a crunchy, all chocolate oreo. Mmmmmmm! Really you have to try these, you have not lived unless you've got your chops round this cinnamon pookie. Now I shall admit they didn't start of as pookies, I baked the first batch as you would a normal cookie but on taking them out of the oven i was greeted with what looked like a fried egg where the cookie had spread so much you could see the shape of the oreo poking through the middle of the cookie. To say I wasn't impressed is a massive understatement. So I used a muffin tray lined with squares of greaseproof paper in an attempt to contain the cookie dough, and it worked. Plus the greaseproof paper made them look very pretty, almost like those tulip cupcake cases you can get. Unfortunately I haven't included a picture of the fried egg version, that's how much I did not like the look of them but if it's the fried egg look you want don't let my lack of a photo stop you. So this is the last thing I shall say regarding these little treats.....Go on, give them a go. No really do it, you won't regret it. Makes 12 - 14 Pookies Ingredients: 225g / 1 Cup Butter (Good Quality) 340g / 1 2/3 Cup Caster Sugar 85g / 1/3 Cup Soft Dark Brown Sugar 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract 1 Egg, Plus an additional Egg Yolk 425g / 3 1/3 Cup Self-Raising Flour 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon 12-14 Chocolate Creme Oreos Method: Preheat your oven to 190c / 375f and line your muffin tin with large squares of greaseproof paper In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, then add the vanilla. Next beat in the egg and the yolk until fully incorporated. Finally sift in your flour and cinnamon, a couple of tablespoons at a time until you have a soft dough. You may have to use your hands towards the end to bring it all together. Now take a generous tablespoon of the dough and wrap it around one of the oreo cookies. The press that into one of the lined muffin holes. Repeat this until you have used all the dough. Then pop into your oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden on the edges. Allow the pookies to cool for 5-10 minutes before moving them out of the tin, and let them cool fully before removing the greaseproof paper.
