Chocolate Chip Cookies + Cream Filling
Oh man, the homemade chocolate chip cookie is the best thing ever, hands down, but when you fill it with gooey creamy marshmallow filling….whoooooaaa….look out! Yes it’s very true, homemade chocolate chip cookies are me weakness, in a very BIG way! Don’t give me the hard, fake, bagged cookie found on the grocery store shelf, no way! Only made from scratch, hot from the oven, will do.
Recently I experimented with Jacobsen Sea Salt on these, and found myself in pure bliss. I’ve also turned my recipe into a gluten free cookie that is just as yummy as the real thing too! Oh and how can I forget these bad boys I made specifically for my daughter, Nutella filled chocolate chip cookies, also amaaaaazing! Well, I have one more to add to my chocolate chip cookie craze…filled with marshmallow creme, these are the ultimate sugar fix!
There is just something about the chocolatey cookie sandwich with sweet, gooey, marshmallow cream that will send you into oblivion…um maybe sugar coma is a better word! Seriously, these are so sweet that I could only eat 1! The inner cookie monster in me, had to stop at 1! These are like the little debbie oatmeal cookies you probably grew up on, but 100 times better. I think it’s magic when you combine butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips and you get a yummy cookie as your end result. Does it get any better than that?
Sometimes life happens, and a homemade chocolate chip cookie is just what you need :)
A few helpful tips for making these perfect:
Use a cookie scoop to drop onto your cookie sheet, they will be very close to the same size when baked.
Use a silpat mat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. They brown beautifully on the bottom side and don’t stick at all, I’ve been using this method for years! How did our parents get along without out?
Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool, this allows the cookie to “set” a little so you don’t end up with a gooey mess instead of a cookie :)
