Friends, I need help.

Let me tell you what all happened while I was trying to come up with these Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches with Nutella Cream Cheese Filling

The attack of the “Let’s find the best chocolate chip cookie recipe” has begun, and it is taking place in my own kitchen. I made 3 versions last week on top of the 2 that I made two weeks prior. They are all in the freezer.

I have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes. About 25 recipes total. Only 5 of those are my own creation; pudding, no pudding, brown sugar, no brown sugar… spice, nut, yay, nay… oh the pain!

Can I tell you that my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is in fact the Nestle Tollhouse recipe? Is that wrong?

Every time I prep to make a new CC Cookie, I end up going back to the Tollhouse ones. But, I think all that might have changed last Tuesday.

The skies opened, the sun shined, and the light led me to … Martha Stewart. As always.

I lost over an hour browsing her cookie recipes, drooling, taking in all the inspiration before I finally decided on making these Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I desperately needed a new cookie recipe because I had this wonderful Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting on my mind. I made it and put it away. It sat in my fridge for two days before I finally realized that I wanted to stuff it in between two chocolate chip cookies.

If you can find about 30 minutes, roll up your sleeves and make these cookie sandwiches. One sandwich is enough, if not plenty, to satisfy that sweet tooth and quiet down the craving. And, make sure you get on the treadmill for 2 hours afterwards. ;-)

ENJOY!

    These look absolutely DELICIOUS! I cannot wait to try this recipe! I never would have thought to combine Nutella and cream cheese. PS My “go to” chocolate chip cookie recipe is always the Tollhouse recipe.

  2. says

    The best chocolate chip cookie recipe…..hmmmmm….that is a tough one. I mean how does one choose just one cookie? I do love Nestle Tollhouse just as much as you do! Your ice cream sandwiches look decadent, delicious, and maybe a little dangerous:-) Hugs, Terra

    I totally understand how you like the Nestle recipe. So many people make it all the time because it is a classic that has been perfected. However, I also love Martha Stewart recipes. I’ve been blogging almost a year, and I bet I’ve made 50 of her recipes!

  4. says

    These look amazing! And I completely feel your pain on finding the perfect recipe. I have tried so many, but I also have gone back to nestle tollhouse! ;) I’ll have to try out this recipe though too.. especially with that frosting! Yum!

    These cookie sandwiches sound to-die-for. And yes, I feel like I’d need to step on the treadmill afterwards, but all cookie sandwiches make me feel like that, unfortunately. :( That nutella filling though… oh my goodness!
    And I love that you have so many favorite CC cookies. :)

    There you go again Kate…….another bite of pure indulgence. Sounds dreamy! Oh….and that Nutella cream cheese frosting…….now that’s heaven!

    Here I thought I was the only weirdo still perfecting the All-American Chocolate Chip Cookie to my personal liking! My fave of all time is still Cook’s Illustrated from January 1996…before all others starting using melted butter in their recipes. Anyway, I still see you are still trying scratch that creamy-chocolate itch from your French Silk Pie with your Nutella Cream Cheese Filling LOL! YUM. xoxo

    Wonderful photos. I wish I could reach through the screen. It’s weird to say it, but my new favorite CCC recipe is off the back of the Costco Kirkland Signature chocolate chips. I like it better than Toll House. Must be the addition of a smidge of shortening to the batter.

    I bet my kids would love these cookies–they love Nutella on anything!

    PS–want to trade freezers? I’ve got a cow in one, and a bunch of put up CSA farm share vegetables and fruits in the other. I’d rather have cookies . . . .

    p.s. It’s taken me 3 decades but as of 2 mos ago, I finally have my CCC recipe. I am finally satisfied. And it’s so easy. It’s popular these days, but not as popular as the Cooks Illustrated recipe, which used to be my go to. But it’s been bumped.

    The things we do for the sake of our food blogs. (Chocolate chip cookie recipe hunts are The best…one can never have too many cookies in their freezer.)

    Nutella is, and always will be, my dark and dashing hero of the dessert spread world. Sorry, cookie butter. :D

    Fab. photos!
