We are taking the classic chocolate chip cookie to the next level with this one!
You start with your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and then add a swirl of yummy buttercream frosting to the middle!
This is like an ice cream sandwich that you don’t have to worry about melting!
My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe is the classic Nestle Toll House recipe (below). This is also probably one of the only recipes that I actually know by heart! 🙂
What you’ll need:
For the cookies:
2 1/4 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 t vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
For the frosting:
3 cups confectioners’ (powdered) sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 t vanilla
1 to 2 T milk
What you do:
Preheat oven to 375
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat butter, sugars, and vanilla until combined and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time.
Once fully combined, gradually add dry ingredients to wet. Mix until combined.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Roll dough into about 1 T size balls. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the pan for 1 – 2 minutes and then transfer to cooling rack.
While the cookies bake, prepare the frosting.
Mix together sugar and butter on low speed until well blended.
Add vanilla and milk and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute, add more milk if needed.
Make sure that cookies are fully cooled.
I put my frosting in a piping bag and use a frosting tip just because I think it is easier. If you do not have piping bags or tips you can also use a knife to frost your cookies. Or, you can simply snip off the corner of a plastic baggie and put the frosting in there.
Frost the flat side of the cookie (the side that was on the baking sheet) and add another cookie on top. Repeat until all cookies have been sandwiched.
