Oreo is celebrating 100 years of oreo baking.
I went to the store with every intention
of getting the birthday cake Oreos…
in spite of hearing on Facebook that they really taste like the original.
Where is the cake batter filling???

Well, I can’t tell you what they really taste like because…
I was completely reeled into buying
the Berry Burst Oreos instead.
Hook, line, and sinker.
Why haven’t I ever gotten these before???

The Oreo cookies stayed hidden in the cupboard for a day or two

until my husband saw them hiding there.
He knows me very well,
and wanted to know what I was making with them.
The cookie hiding spot has been compromised….
so quick baking action was needed before they disappeared.

He just can’t get over the fact that I buy junk food to make even junkier food :-)
Now I totally disagree…these scones have 3 of the food groups in them.
Bread, dairy, and fruit.
Sounds like healthy food to me…or at least breakfast food!
I am so glad that the cookies came out of hiding on the very day
we stopped at Starbucks and my hubby downed one of their scones.
The urge to make scones was there.
Plus who in their right mind
would turn down cookies and chocolate in a  breakfast recipe???
I may or may not have eaten my fair share of these “healthy” fruit filled babies.
And the fruit filling in the oreo totally counts as a double dose of fruit.

Sheeeesh!!!!
I need another bag of Oreos
and a new hiding place!
Maybe this time I will get the sprinkle ones:-)

Berry Burst Oreo Scones

Scones made with Berry Oreos and chocolate drizzle will make you smile all day long.

Ingredients

2 c. flour
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. butter, cold
2/3 c. buttermilk
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. Berry Burst Oreos, broken
1/2 c. dried berry mix, sliced
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. shortening

Instructions

  1. Whisk dry ingredients together. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles a small pea. Form a hole in the center and add the milk, vanilla, and beaten egg. Stir until it is all combined. Stir in the cookie chunks and fruit.
  2. The dough will be very sticky. Drop 12 large spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. Carefully press down and pull out, until each scone is about 3 inches wide. Bake 20 minutes at 400*. Cool on a wire rack until fully cooled.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl, stirring often. Dip the bottoms into the melted chocolate. Drizzle the extra chocolate over the tops of the sones and let set up on wax paper. Store in a very loosely sealed container.

    Hahah my cookie hiding spots are changing all the time! I pinned the blueberry and chocolate cheesecake recipe and got so many repins, so I hope it’s gotten you a little more traffic! I still can’t wait to try them!

    They look delicious! I would make these today if I had all the ingredients. I’m missing the cookies and the buttermilk and don’t want to run to the store. I will try them later, though.

    And – I think people put too much emphasis on what goes into their body and too little emphasis on what goes into their spirit. Your body is temporary and what we think is healthy often turns out to be filled with toxins, anyway. Our spirits on the other hand are eternal. What we feed our spirits should be uplifting and encouraging so we follow the right path and spend eternity in a place where we would want to be!
    And if eating a little junk helps us get to heaven just a little bit faster – that’s okay. Who wouldn’t want to be promoted a bit early?

    Yum! Those look so good and so does that strawberry milk, actually! Gosh, I haven’t had that in ages… love me some berry milk!! And what a great way to feature the berry Oreos. I’ve always been intrigued by them but never picked them up. Now I guess I have to! :)

    Oh my gosh, these look phenomenal. And your story IS my story! I only buy Oreos to put in other treats. It really is a bizarre concept. I totally have a cookie hiding stash in my cabinets as well, but for security reasons I better not say where :)
    Guess we are twinsies again!

    I was so disappointed that I couldn’t find the birthday oreos that I didn’t buy any other variety, even though they had the yellow spring version, and this berry pink one. You have definitely sold me on the berry version! Time to head back to the cookie aisle:) Your scones look amazing!
