Cookies and Cream Cookies

A coworker brought in some cookies and cream cookies. I found them intriguing, putting broken up cookies and cream cookies into another cookie. I asked her for the recipe and she said it was on Pinterest. All the recipes I came across on Pinterest called for pudding mix, in addition to the broken up cookies.

Yet, when I came home and decided to make the cookies, there was no pudding mix in my pantry. Now, I like how soft and chewy the cookies come out when you use a mix but there is an aftertaste that I do not like. Hubs says cookies made with pudding mix taste like plastic and storebought, rather than homemade.

These cookies are made without pudding mix and include coconut oil and brown sugar instead of white sugar. This is because I only had one stick of butter left and no white sugar. A lot of my recipes end up being adapted because I lack an ingredient or two. However, these cookies still came out soft and delicious.

2 3/4 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp milk
1 egg
10 chocolate cream sandwich cookies, rough broken

Makes 3 1/2 dozen

Preheat oven to 350. Cream together sugar, butter and coconut oil. Beat in egg and add vanilla extract and milk. Some people like to whisk the dry ingredients all together and then mix it into the wet mixture. I’m a bit lazy so I dump in the dry ingredients into the wet bowl and then mix.

I scoop out about a 1.5 tbsp of dough and flatten it a bit and put it on a silpat covered baking sheet. It makes for easier clean up.

Bake for 10 min. Let cool for about 30 sec on baking sheet before moving cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Yummy for the tummy!
