Oreo Cookie Pound Cake

Pound cake + Oreos?  Oh man.  Pure heaven!  And here’s the icing on the cake… it’s a Paula Dean recipe!  That made it a no brainer for us.  We knew it was going to be amazing!
Here is Oregon students have to take the OAKS state assessment tests in certain content areas.  My son exceeded on his math test so I told him I was going to make him any dessert he wanted so we could celebrate.  He didn’t even have to think.  He said “pound cake!”  And guess what his favorite cookie is.  Yep, Oreos.  I went onto Pinterest and pulled up the picture of this Oreo Cookie Pound Cake and the look on his face was hysterical.  Yep, this is what he chose.
Great choice!
Oreo Cookie Pound Cake
* 1 1/4 cups butter, softened
* 3 cups sugar
* 6 large eggs
* 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 cup heavy whipping cream
* 25 Oreo cookies, crushed
* 2 cups powdered sugar
* 3 Tablespoons whole milk
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Spray a 12 or 15 cup fluted pan with nonstick baking spray.  I love the “baking” kind with flour in it.  It works great!
Crush the Oreo cookies.  My son is my official Oreo cookie crusher.  He puts them in a zip lock bag and pounds them =o)
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar at medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour alternately with cream, beginning and ending with flour, beating until just combined after each addition.
Spoon half of batter into prepared pan. Top evenly with half of crushed cookies.
Spoon remaining batter over cookies. Top with remaining crushed cookies.
Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
In a small bowl, whisk powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle glaze over cooled cake and top with cookie crumbs.
It really was delicious.  The pound cake was amazing and with the addition of Oreos – it was quite the treat.  My son said it is his new favorite pound cake.  Which says a lot because he LOVES my other pound cake I make all the time.
Don’t you wish you had a slice?  =o)
