Cookies and Cream Cookies

·

I have always been a fan of chocolate sandwich cookies. I have also always loved a chocolate chip cookie. You know the type: blue container with the two trays of cookies perfectly separated, desperate for a glass of milk and my favorite post-school shows. It's nothing but pure nostalgia when I think of these two cookies, so I thought, why not combine the two?! Sure, it's not the most clever or original recipe, but these soft and chewy cookies are seriously delicious and pack the perfect cookies and cream flavor in EVERY bite. Trust me.

Chocolate sandwich cookies are classic, and are always a fun snack to have. I remember trying to twist them open and if I was able to get all of the cream on the inside stick to just one side of the chocolate cookie, I was considered awesome. I'd like to think I still am awesome but I digress. These cookies and cream cookie are all the rage, and when I made all 22 cookies, they were literally gone in 4 days. I had to bring some to work to save a few and have other friends and colleagues try them. The feedback sounded more like ASMR moments, with a "oooooh" and an "mmmm." Yep, these cookies are a hit. What makes me even more excited about these cookies is that they are incredibly easy to prep ahead of time, chill, and bake at a later date. You can freeze the cookies (either baked already or freeze the dough) for an event, or a wintry cold day with the kiddos at home for a snow day and you are dying to throw something in the oven. PERFECT! When biting into these delicious cookies, the sweetness of the cookie, the crunchiness of the chocolate sandwich, and the buttery texture truly makes me smile from ear to ear. They are just so good.

Cookies and Cream Cookies Ingredients:

  • Chocolate sandwich cookies: the star of the show! Crumble a sleeve (or two) up and throw them in the batter.
  • All-purpose flour: nothing fancy here, just the best all-purpose flour (we love Bob's Red Mill)
  • Baking soda: helps with the rise of the cookie
  • Salt: balances out the sweetness
  • Brown sugar: helps give these delicious cookies and cream cookies the best flavor, and of course sweetness
  • Cane sugar: an essential element to any cookie!
  • Eggs and butter: what else is there to say? These two are the perfect duo for essentially any recipe.

Cookies and Cream Cookies Tips:

  1. You absolutely want to chill the cookie dough before baking. Chilling the cookies helps for all of the ingredients to work together and it will let the dough set. Chilling before baking allows for less spread as they bake.
  2. Cream your butter and sugar WELL. Taken from the cookie maven herself, Tessa from Handle the Heat always talks about the importance of well creamed butter. To really cream butter accurately, it will take around 5 minutes.
  3. Be patient before grabbing a cookie to eat. Cookies actually need more than just 10 minutes to cool. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let cool fully for up to 30 minutes.

Making these cookies and cream cookies will bring you so much joy, and sharing them during the holiday season will be even sweeter. Make them for family, for a cookie swap, for a virtual cookie party, or share the love with your neighbors. These soft and chewy cookies will literally bring a smile to anyone's face. Guaranteed!

Cookies and Cream Cookies

When two cookie worlds collide to create these soft and chewy cookies, you know it's gotta be good. Imagine a cookie within a cookie, not quite chocolate chip, and not quite a chocolate sandwich cookie. A hybrid of childhood nostalgia. All you need is a glass of milk and TRL.
