Ultimate Cookies & Cream Confetti Cookies

Cookies & Cream Confetti Cookies | Sprinkles for Breakfast

I have been in Bavaria, Germany for almost three weeks now. The people have been amazing, the food has been great and I have had so many wonderful experiences. But, I am not going to lie, I have had a little difficulty in the kitchen. So many of the ingredients here are different from those in the USA. Some things, like baking soda, don't even exist. When I asked where it was, people were looking at me like I was crazy.

So this means some of the things I am baking have needed a little bit of tweaking. There were some disastrous macarons, some mediocre chocolate chip cookies, and some odd looking Jumbles. One thing I have found that is definitely the same in both Germany and the USA is the Oreo. Nothing beats a good old fashioned Oreo dipped in milk (or my personal favorite, peanut butter).

But for some reason, no one here had ever heard of "Cookies & Cream" - which is arguably one of the best flavors of all time. So I made the Bavarians some Cookies & Cream Cookies. They were skeptical at first, but after one bite, they were hooked.

Cookies & Cream Cookies are usually pretty great, but these have cornstarch in them to make them extra soft and chewy. The marshmallows add a nice surprise and the sprinkles are there for obvious reasons. I am obsessed with these cookies - so if you are a big Oreo fan, make these ASAP.
