When I started making this recipe, I though I was making coconut M&M cookies. Well being the ditz I am, I didn’t notice until I creamed together my sugar and butter that there was no actual coconut in these cookies. The “coconut” was the coconut that was supposed to be in the coconut M&M’s. I pretty much made this recipe before when I made M&M Cookies.
I saw this on Picky Palate. It was such a brilliant idea, yet it seemed so obvious. Like why haven’t we been doing this forever!?
Pretty much what it is, is what it looks like. It’s just regular cookie dough (I used the cookie dough I was making for the cookies I originally thought were going to be coconut cookies!) and then you stick something inside. You can put pretty much anything you want in there. As you can see I used everything, based on the above picture.
I have got to say though, the Oreoone was definitely my favorite. The melty insides were a perfect contrast to the soft chocolate chip cookie.
