Oreo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Hello everyone!
It is officially starting to feel like summer around here.
Ever since I was little one of my favorite movies to watch during the summer time was the Parent Trap.
I have a special place in my heart for both the original and the 1998 version.
Growing up the 1998 version was much more popular with my friends.
We all had to try eating Oreo's with Peanut Butter after watching the movie.
I thought it would be fun to make a twist on the popular Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies and try out Oreo stuffed peanut butter cookies a la the Parent Trap.

You will need: 
1/2 a cup of softened butter
1 cup of peanut butter
1/4 a cup of sugar
3/4 a cup of brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 and 1/2 cups of flour
12 Oreo's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar until well combined.
Add in the egg and vanilla.
In a separate bowl mix together baking soda, salt and flour.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while stirring.
Use a one inch cookie scoop and create two balls with the peanut butter dough.
Place an Oreo between the two cookie dough balls and mold dough around the Oreo.
Seal edges and make sure the Oreo is completely enclosed.
Flatten the top of the cookie with a fork to create design. (Optional)
Repeat until cookie dough is gone. (Mine made 12 cookies, or 24 cookie dough balls)
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes.

These turned out so good!
They are best right out of the oven when the Oreo is nice and soft.
I have to admit that I have not tried Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies but based on our experience with these cookies I can't wait.
I would definitely recommend making these while listening to the Parent Trap soundtrack(It's so good!) or watching the movie.
What are summer of your favorite summer movies?
