Yesterday, Trump’s administration took it upon themselves to advance a rule that would deny Title X funding to any reproductive health clinic that provides or discusses abortion with their patients, so you know, I did what any red-blooded American feminist homebody would do: woke up, cleaned my kitchen, and made a shitload of these cookies.
I found this recipe from Dinner, Then Dessert (pasted below).
First, dump 12 cookies in the food processer and pulse them, pretending that each cookie is a member of Trump’s administration who told him it was a good idea to start meddling in the relationships doctors have with their patients.
Then, chop up 14 Oreo cookies into little tiny pieces, like you’re a member of HHS and the cookies are the bucket of Title X money that goes to Planned Parenthood for life-saving care like cancer screenings and STI testing.
Now it’s time to cream together 2 full sticks of softened butter and the sugar, because god damn it, the Trump administration is trying to make it almost impossible for low-income people to access life-saving care BECAUSE OF COURSE THEY ARE.
Oreo Chunk Cookie
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 10 Oreos , processed to a very fine crumb
- 1 cup unsalted butter , softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 14 quartered Oreos
Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Add in the Oreo crumbs.
In a medium bowl, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
Beat in the vanilla and eggs until light and creamy.
Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the oreo chunks by hand using a wooden spoon.
Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
Drop cookie dough 1 tablespoon at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted.
Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
