Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies aka "The Pregnant Cookie"

Chocolate chip cookies stuffed with oreos. I mean, seriously. These cookies and I were meant to be together. Chocolate chip cookies are by far my favorite cookie to bake from scratch (probably my favorite dessert to eat of all time) and Oreo cookies are my favorite store bought cookie. So put them together and I am in heaven. I've been craving both of these cookies in a big way lately, so I figured I'd try these cookies out and see what all the buzz is about!



But there's another reason I thought it would be perfectly appropriate to make these cookies....when I see that Oreo nestled inside the chocolate chip cookie, I can't help but think of the little sweet treat I've got nestled inside my belly. So I thought it would be the perfect way to announce my own big news...

THERE'S A BELLA BAKER BUN IN THE OVEN!!!!


Yep, I am pregnant!!! Evan and I are so thrilled, and aside from the crazy cravings and the constant feeling that I could fall asleep at any time of day (standing up if I had to!), I'm feeling pretty good!


So that's my exciting news! Get ready for lots of sweet recipes as I share my journey to motherhood with each of you! I still can't believe I'm going to be a mom!!
