Cookie Monster

Brownie Cookie Dough Sandwiches
I am a true cookie dough addict; I could stand over a bowl full of dough and consume the entire thing. The butter, the sugar, the chocolate, what’s not to love? These little sandwiches bring my love of cookies and cookie dough together by combining a chocolaty brownie bun with a marshmallow cookie dough center. I warn you these are not for the faint of heart, they are sugar madness and oh so good.

Brownie Cookie:

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup white sugar
3/4 packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

Cookie Dough Filling:

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 T brown sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 13 oz container marshmallow crème (Fluff)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

To Make the Brownie Cookie:

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and then the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Combine the salt, cocoa, flour, baking powder and baking soda and gradually stir into the creamed mixture.
3. Shape dough into 1 1/2 T sized balls and place on a baking sheet. Flatten cookies slightly with the bottom of a drinking glass or your palm.

4. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are puffy and the tops are cracked, but still soft. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

To Make The Cookie Dough Filling:
Fluff, what could be better?

1. With an electric mixer, cream butter until fluffy. Add sugar and beat well. Add flour and beat until all the flour is incorporated. Add remaining ingredients and beat until mixture is smooth. (It will be fairly thick). 

To Assemble The Sandwiches:

1. Scoop about 3T of filling onto to bottom of a cooled cookie. Top with another cookie and eat. 

Yield: About 15 large cookie sandwiches.
