I got this idea when I was in the cookies aisle at the grocery store. It just kind of occurred to me, if I can put a milk dud inside a cookie, then why not a cookie inside a cookie. First thing you wanna do is make your cookie dough and place it in the fridge. This will make the dough easier to handle when it's time to rap it around your crumb mixture.
I got one package of these Coconut Dreams cookies, and placed all the cookies into a food processor and processed until there were no large pieces left.
This is what it should look like. Then add 2 tablespoons of melted butter to the cookie crumbs and stirred until butter is well incorporated into the crumb mixture. Now, it's time to get your hands dirty, so take off any rings you might have on. Grab a portion of your crumb mixture, role into balls that are a little larger then a marble, and place on a cookie sheet.
- 1 cup (2 sticks) of softened butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 packages Coconut Dream Cookies
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 cup melted milk chocolate to top cookies if desired
Start making your cookie dough first. Place softened butter and sugars into a mixing bowl and beat together until butter and sugar start to look creamy. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter sugar mixture and mix well. Place dough into refrigerator.
Place Coconut Dream Cookies into food processor and process until not large pieces remain. Transfer crumbs to a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of melted butter and stir. Role crumb mixture into balls that are a little larger then a marble and place on cookie sheet.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cover crumb balls with cookie dough and place 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes and let cool completely. If desired melt 1 cup milk chocolate and drizzle over the top of cookies. Enjoy :)
