I had never tried these candies, but when I saw this recipe on Picky Palate, I thought they looked fun. (Make sure to take the time to stay and visit at Jenny’s site since it is FULL of great recipes.) I only had the time to go to one store before making these and that store only had 3.1-oz. boxes, but Jenny said they had the 6-oz. boxes at Walmart so I’ll look there next time. I gave this cookie to several people (so I didn’t eat them all!) and they all liked it. This recipe would make a good chocolate chip cookie even if you don’t have the candy—soft and sweet.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies
1 c. butter, softened
¾ c. brown sugar
¾ c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 ¾ c. flour
1 t. baking soda
¾ t. salt
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
2 (6-oz) boxes Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
Preheat oven to 375°. Cream the butter and sugars until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well mixed. In a separate bowl sift the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips and cookie dough bites until just combined.
With a cookie scoop, scoop onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
Yield: About 36 cookies
