Cookies ‘n Cream Cookies

notes on trickery + jack-o-lanterns on oreos:

I realized upon waking that I am not the same person. I have lost

the parts of me that fit, back then.

And I would not describe the loss Ideal,

nor would I admit those limbs have not been phantom, but

we are different now + i am able now

and even the cookies we knew as kids have different faces

when the world keeps turning, with or without,

changing colors and not waiting for permission to move on.

Cookies ‘n Cream Cookies
Makes about a dozen cookies

1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp molasses
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
10 Oreos, Halloween-themed or otherwise, broken into chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, soda, and salt. In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, and molasses. Beat in vanilla. Beat in egg, then egg yolk. Stir in chocolate chips until just combined. Gently fold in Oreos until just combined. Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheet, spacing out about 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes, rotating halfway through, until slightly underdone in the middle and golden around the edges. Let cool 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
