I like to make cookies. I like to make cookies that I have never made before. Most of all I like to make cookies that taste and look good.
In my search for cookie recipes to make for the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies....
....I found this fabulous recipe from the Clumbsy Cookie blog called Chocolate Chip Cookie Ravioli. Just from the title it's self of this cookie I was intrigued! What in the world is a cookie that is a "ravioli"? Was it made with pasta? NO it is a cookie made with a simple sugar cookie dough and topped with "chocolate chip cookie dough" (or jam - like I used) and then sandwiched with another layer of sugar cookie dough thus giving the effect of a "ravioli". Brilliant!
In an effort to create my own kind of cookie from this recipe I renamed therecipe to Pillow Cookies - these cookies seem more like a fluffy soft "pillow" rather than a "pasta" kind of cookie. Of course you may think differently...which is fine! Name this cookie recipe whatever you wish.
I chose to go the easy peasy way and use cookie mixes rather than making the cookie dough from scratch. I know, for many of you this is a "sin" but for me these days (I have just entered my 30th week of pregnancy) I need to find anything possible that gives me the quickest way to the end result. Made from scratch or from the help of the lovely Betty Crocker it's your choice for these cookies.
(recipe adapted from the Clumbsy Cookie)
*Sugar Cookie Mix
*Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
*2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
*jam of your choice (I used strawberry and peach)
1. Mix up cookie dough (according to package directions or the recipe of your choice) - Sugar Cookie Dough and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out Sugar Cookie Dough to about a 1/4" thickness....
Using cookie cutters of your choice cut out an even amount of cookies....
....and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
3. Top 1/2 of your cut out cookies with a small tsp. of Chocolate Chip Dough (or jam) and then place another cut out cookie on top of filling. Gently seal cookie with a fork....
4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges and tops of cookies a lightly browned. Carefully slip parchment paper off of cookie sheets with cookies and cool on a wired rack.
HEAVEN in a cookie!
Happiness and yumminess in a cookie!
