Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies

I usually do all of the cookie baking in our house. Not because Josh never offers to bake cookies, but I usually don’t let him:) The controlling side of me comes out when cookies are involved. If he starts to bake cookies, I usually run into the kitchen and take over. I can’t help myself. I LOVE baking cookies. Josh never gets upset, he just hangouts in the kitchen with me and eats my cookie dough. I try to smack his hands out of the bowl, but he is sneaky! He always manages to eat a few big fingerfuls of cookie dough.

Josh loves cookie dough and I love cookies. These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwich Cookies are the best of both worlds. Two homemade chocolate chip cookies are stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough. Genius! We both get our cookie fix with these delectable sandwich cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sandwiches

Yield: 20-24 sandwiches

Two chocolate chip cookies are stuffed with eggless chocolate chip cookie dough. Cookie and cookie dough lovers will go crazy for these sandwich cookies.


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.

Note: Sandwiches can be stored refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to 3 days. Let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

    Definitely cookie-dough! Whenever we bake cookies I eat more of the dough than the baked cookie.

  2. Rosa — May 30, 2012 @ 3:51 am

    OMG, those look terrific! What an awesome treat.



  3. amy marantino — May 30, 2012 @ 3:52 am

    i like cookie dough better

  4. Mary — May 30, 2012 @ 3:54 am

    That’s a tough one. I’ve been a cookie dough lover since I was a child but I’m beginning to really love baked cookies just as much. What a quandry!

  5. Jamie S — May 30, 2012 @ 4:01 am

    Hands down, raw cookie dough. I have to stop myself from eating the whole bowl so there will be some left to bake!

  6. Priyanka — May 30, 2012 @ 5:04 am

    Yummy….looks perfect.
    Another must try

  7. Kim — May 30, 2012 @ 5:32 am

    Cookie dough is WAYYYYYYYYY better than actually baking the cookies. :)

  8. Heather Bonner — May 30, 2012 @ 5:54 am

    I guess it depends on where in the cooking making process you ask me. If you ask me during the dough stage, then I would say cookie dough. But right after a chocolate chip cookie has come out of the oven and they are all warm and gooey, well, then I would say the cookie. What came first, the chicken or the egg?

  9. Stefanie — May 30, 2012 @ 5:55 am

    Since I am pregnant, baked cookies better!

  10. Blog is the New Black — May 30, 2012 @ 5:58 am

    Straight up cookie dough for sure!

  11. NancyAP — May 30, 2012 @ 6:03 am

    I love cookie dough! It’s my favorite!

  12. Caitlin — May 30, 2012 @ 6:06 am

    While the buttery crunch of a baked cookie can’t be beat, I’d still choose the cookie dough! And all I can think looking at these cookies is that they’d be even better dipped 1/2 way into melted chocolate :-)

  13. Emily @ Life on Food — May 30, 2012 @ 6:07 am

    Oh I think I liked the baked version better. Tough one though!

  14. Lauren — May 30, 2012 @ 6:11 am

    Cookie dough for sure!

  15. Kim — May 30, 2012 @ 6:36 am

    Definitely the cookies… warm out of the oven!

  16. Kiersten — May 30, 2012 @ 6:48 am

    Cookie dough all the way!

  17. Jodi — May 30, 2012 @ 7:11 am

    Cookie dough without a doubt!!!

  18. wow! these look amazing! i am a lover of both so these cookies look perfect for me. but if i had to choose i guess i’d have to pick baked chocolate chip cookies.

  19. Cherry — May 30, 2012 @ 7:18 am

    I love cookie dough better!!!!

  20. 3petitsprinces — May 30, 2012 @ 7:21 am

    I have to say that a warm, oozy, fresh baked cookie with a cold glass of milk can’t be beat! So, make mine baked, please!

  21. Melissa — May 30, 2012 @ 7:24 am

    Well, I WANT to say dough, because it’s ready faster — but I also looooove baked cookies! (Ideally gooey…so it must be dough :)

  22. Gwyn — May 30, 2012 @ 7:25 am

    I love both, but would pick a warm cookie straight from the oven first!!

  23. Marilyn — May 30, 2012 @ 7:34 am

    Mmmm….warm cookies straight from the oven are the clear winner in my book. :-)

  24. Dana — May 30, 2012 @ 7:37 am

    Baked cookies because there is no guilt or worry about eating raw eggs. With this recipe you get the best of both worlds since the filling has no eggs! 😀

  25. Jamie — May 30, 2012 @ 7:41 am

    I believe their is a time and place for both raw dough and baked cookies :)

  26. Jessica H. — May 30, 2012 @ 7:42 am

    baked cookiee girl all the way

  27. Michelle — May 30, 2012 @ 7:44 am

    Is that question even possible to answer?! I’ll say baked cookies but must add that half the cookie dough is usually gone before they reach their finished state!

  28. Mandy W. — May 30, 2012 @ 7:45 am

    Both! I love the baked cookies as much as the cookie dough.

  29. Jen — May 30, 2012 @ 7:45 am

    I love cookies!! It always seems that I can eat more cookies than dough so that’s better in my mind. :)

  30. I’m a baked cookie girl myself!

  31. Rita Tatem — May 30, 2012 @ 7:47 am

    Baked – but there’s something naughty about eating the dough. When you can sneak it, you gotta just go for it! Yum!

  32. Sara — May 30, 2012 @ 7:48 am

    I like them both!! I think my favorite though is slightly underbaked cookies. That way you have the doughy centers, and the baked outsides. YUM!

  33. Hannah — May 30, 2012 @ 7:50 am

    Cookie Dough! Tastes delicious and you don’t have to wait as long.

  34. Allie — May 30, 2012 @ 7:50 am

    baked cookies for sure!

  35. Eileen — May 30, 2012 @ 7:51 am

    I LOVE raw cookie dough. I enjoy baking cookies because I can eat half the dough while the cookies bake.

  36. Tina — May 30, 2012 @ 7:51 am

    Cookie dough of course. Christmas of my 7th grade year I use to sneak down to the basement frige and snack on the choco chip cookie dough. Two fingers full per trip. Then I would wait until my mom was out of the house and I would have to make another batch. I had to replace the batch 4 times that Christmas. I was obsessed. But it was oh so yummy.

  37. Nicole — May 30, 2012 @ 7:52 am

    Always always ALWAYS prefer the cookie dough!!!

  38. Jocelyn — May 30, 2012 @ 7:52 am

    raw cookie dough is the BEST! Love your blog!

  39. Elyssa — May 30, 2012 @ 7:55 am

    definitely dough

  40. Ashley — May 30, 2012 @ 7:56 am

    Definitely COOKIE DOUGH :) The best cookies are the ones that are still fabulously doughy, even after cooking!
