THE RECIPE

Homemade Peanut Butter Filled Oreos

A childhood favorite, reinvented

Whether you’re a twist-and-lick or bite-right-through kind of person, there’s no denying that Oreos were a childhood favorite cookie. Though a package still sneaks its way into the pantry here and there when we’re having a particularly vulnerable day at the grocery store, there’s nothing quite like re-making a nostalgic treat at home. Inspired by a scene in the 1998 movie The Parent Trap where the sisters dip Oreos into peanut butter, Tieghan creates her own Oreo-inspired sandwich cookie. Tender chocolate cookies are baked then topped on one side with a homemade creme filling and on the other side with a dollop of peanut butter. When you put the two together, it’s just like you remembered it as a kid. Biting through the cookies leads to the sweetness of the creme then the addictive stickiness of the peanut butter that you just can’t seem to get off your teeth (that’s a good thing). Just make sure to have a big glass of milk nearby to wash it down.

The greatest part about cooking is seeing people's reactions to food. When they love something I've made it's the best feeling! I love to make healthy foods with tons of veggies, but I am not afraid of some butter either!

There’s really no other word to describe Tieghan other than inspiring. She began cooking at the age of 15, just before her sister was born. Soon, Tieghan took on the challenge of making all of the meals for her family and keeping the fridge and pantry well-stocked. Inspired by other food blogs since the age of 13, Tieghan finally decided to turn her passion and responsibilities at home into a blog of her own, Half Baked Harvest, where she shares her adventures in the kitchen feeding 9 (that’s right, 9) hungry mouths. Through creative sweet and savory recipes, the “Harvest” in Tieghan’s blog name represents her love of wholesome ingredients and food made from scratch. If she’s this talented at such a young age, we can’t wait to see what she’ll do next.

Head over to Half Baked Harvest and say hello to Tieghan on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
