Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches with Cookie Dough

by The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients (serves 24)
    For Cookies:
    • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips
    For Cookie Dough:
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup heavy cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
    1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugars until no lumps remain, 1-2 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract, scraping the sides of the bowl to make sure all of the ingredients are incorporated. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and mix until smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour or overnight.

    2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll chilled dough into smooth, tablespoon-size balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Flatten balls slightly into 3/4-inch disks. Place disks about 2 inches apart on parchment or Silpat lined baking sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until cookie edges are slightly golden brown. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.

    3. To prepare the cookie dough filling, beat together butter and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in flour, powdered sugar, and salt on low speed until incorporated. Slowly add heavy cream and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stir in mini chocolate chips.

    4. To assemble, sandwich 1 heaping tablespoon of filling between two cookies. Press cookies lightly until filling spreads to the edges. Repeat with remaining cookies.

    1. Goodness gracious... these look decadent! Man, I love cookies. Promises. Bible. <---The Kardashians say that... yes, I watch them. Guilty.

    2. Cookie dough heaven over here!

    3. Love these! My Choc Chip Cookie recipe asks to be chilled in a sausage before slicing and baking. I always eat more raw cookie than cooked cookie! It's brilliant chilled -the chocolate bits are really hard and the dough chewy! Heaven!

      I came to you via your comment on my guest post for CCU. Glad I made you smile. Thank you! :)

    4. Oh, yeah...these would make the family VERY happy! Mmmmmm...

    5. Oh Emily! These look incredible. I don't think I would have been able to take pictures of this.

    6. What a fantastic treat!! My kids would do cartwheels for these (and if I wasn't so old, I would too!). :)
