I had sleepover at my friend’s house and I made some cookies! Since I gave her 3 layers of chocolate cake from my fail topsy turvy cake (Yes, topsy turvy and another freakin baking fail) and I was on the hunt for something “different” kind of cookies. I decided to make these so that we can use some cake leftover.
Have you heard of pillow cookies before? Pillow cookies, is a chocolate chip cookie stuffed with brownie.
1,2,3, pillow cookies!
My friend has a kitchen aid mixer! So cool!
Pillow Cookies from Bakerella
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 oz. bag miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
For the chocolate chip cookie dough, beat butter with a mixer until creamy.
Add brown sugar and beat until smooth.
Add eggs, yolk and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a medium bowl and stir together with a wire whisk.
Add flour to butter mixture and beat until combined. Stir in mini chips.
Let dough chill covered in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare six cookies at a time using a large baking sheet (15 X 20) and bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes. Return the remaining dough to the refrigerator until time to bake the second batch.
Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then cool completely on a wire rack.
