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. πŸ˜‰

ENJOY!

      Hi Tom!

      I wouldn’t fill the cookies and then put them in the fridge; instead, keep the filling refrigerated and spread it on the cookies when ready to eat.

  1. Kim

    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. Jean (Lemons & Anchovies)

    These Nutella posts are tempting me to skip dinner and dive straight into the Nutella jar. These cookie sandwiches look amazing!

  3. Terra Baltosiewich (@CafeTerraBlog)

    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

  4. Laura Dembowski (@piesandplots)

    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!

  5. Elyse @The Cultural Dish

    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! πŸ˜‰ I’ll have to try out this recipe though too.. especially with that frosting! Yum!

  6. Alexandra

    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. πŸ™ That nutella filling though… oh my goodness!
    And I love that you have so many favorite CC cookies. πŸ™‚

  7. Nancy R

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

  8. Sandra's Easy Cooking

    Oh myyyy….wow! I want to eat all of it! Looks amazing! And…your photography just stunning girl, love your retro styling…very cool!

  9. Paula @ Vintage Kitchen

    The filling is amazing Kate, not just for cookies but for a cake! I do believe toll house are the best still, all other are just a variation of that recipe, with half a cup more or less of flour or sugar.

  10. The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time

    Honestly, I just want a spoon and the container of that Nutella frosting. Wow, that sounds amazing. I’ve not seen Martha’s cookie recipe, but I usually head to my Mrs. Fields cookie book when I’m looking for a fantastic cookie recipe.

  11. Stephanie @ Steph Loves Cake

    Oh my! This is a must do this weekend, but in a tiny batch and I must run before and after making them πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing!

  12. Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen

    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 . . . .

    1. Kate@Diethood

      I’ve tried the Kirkland recipe! It is SO good!!

      I’ll trade freezers, not a problem… we need a cow and some fresh veggies, stat! πŸ˜€

  14. Averie @Averie Cooks

    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.

  15. Valerie

    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. πŸ˜€

    Fab. photos!
