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.

  • 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
  5. 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.

  1. I cannot wait to try these! I usually but cookie dough and never make the cookies! Cookie dough is definitely better!

  2. Wow….. Tough decision between cookie dough
    & the finished product….. But I am going
    to go with my fave being the cookies ! 😉

  3. Cookie dough for sure. My roommate limits the amount we can eat, so we don’t get sick of salmonella. We just tried these cookies and they are so good! Pretzels taste really good dipped into the middle layer!

  4. Baked is better because their is nothing like the smell of baking goodies in a house. Raw cookie dough can’t match that!

  5. I prefer the baked cookie especially when still warm and gooey from the oven. However, my two children prefer cookie dough. I make cookie dough truffles that do not contain raw eggs that they just adore. I can’t wait to try this recipe out on them. It does seem to be the best of both worlds.

  6. Absolutely LOVE cookie dough better then baked cookies—probably why I have to make a large batch so by the time I bake them I actually still have a dozen cookies that come out of the oven!!!

  7. Cookie dough is delicious..but then you take that deliciousness and put it in the oven and BAM something else delicious comes out!

  8. I would have to say both!! They are like two different desserts!! Love cookie dough in icecream!! But fresh warm cookies are great too…..and of course good in icecream!! What a fun cookbook!! Thanks for such great recipes! I will be trying this one soon!

  9. i prefer raw cookie dough over baked cookies. i love the flavor!

  10. I live at high altitude (4955 ft), and I made these cookies–didn’t even get to the filling part (which was the initial reason why I wanted to make this), and these cookies are PERFECT for high altitude! This is the FIRST time I have made chocolate chip cookies from scratch that did not turn into runny melted puddle-things! Thank you!

  11. I LOVE then before they are baked. I used to always get in trouble as a kid for eating my Mom’s sugar cookie dough when she left it in the fridge overnight!

  12. These cookie dough sandwiches were delicious! I made them about a week and a half ago and have been thinking about them ever since! My husband and I refrigerated them and then ate them chilled – I have always been a fan of cold chocolate! 🙂

    I do wish the consistency of the cookie dough was more dough-like, but I am assuming it’s because the eggs are missing. Unless I whipped mine too much, my filling turned out more like a cream/frosting. But it definitely had the cookie dough taste, so that was perfect! Also, I only ended up with 17 sandwiches, so I must have been making my cookies too large. Next time I will scale them down a bit!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! 🙂

  13. I made these for our 4th of July party! They were a hit and didn’t last very long. They are on the list to make again SOON!

  14. I am a cookie dough junkie but my daughter (who also shares my love of cookie dough) likes to make the dough and the cookies, so this recipe is perfect. I can’t wait to make them with my daughter!

  15. Cookie dough is so addictive! I always end up eating the all of it before I can make even a dozen cookies! And my cookies never turn out quite right, hopefully this book can help 😉

    So, I guess the verdict is that cookie dough wins!
