Heather's Brownies

I have had a few requests for my brownie recipe so I am going to post and hopefully get a picture in later. For several years now these have been my treat of choice. I keep a stash in my freezer in individual bags that I pull out often. Kids joke that they can tell how tough a day it was by the size of the brownie. The original recipe was from but then I tweaked it a bit.

 Cookie layer:
1 c (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 c granualted sugar
3/4 c light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 c (12 oz) chocolate chips

Oreo Layer:
1 pkg double stuffed oreos (family size is slightly too many, original size is slightly too few)

Brownie Layer:

1/2 c plus 2 1/2 Tbsp butter
1/2 c cocoa
1 1/3 c sugar
3 eggs
1 1/3 c flour
1/2 c chocolate chips

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 in dish with foil and spray with Pam.
2. Make the cookie layer: Beat the butter and sugars together till creamy. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Flatten the cookie dough in the bottom of the dish.
3. Top with a layer of Oreos.
4. Make the brownie layer: Melt the butter and cocoa together on the stove. Remove from heat. Stir in the sugar and flour. When mixture has cooled slightly stir in the eggs and chocolate chips.
5. Pour the brownie mixture on top of the oreos.
6. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 25 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting.
