Cookie Dough Filled Cookie Cups


This post is not for the faint of heart.

So if you’ve ever been known to utter the phrase, “that’s much too rich” or “oh, that’s too sweet”,  you have no business being here right now.
Go on.  Go.


Ok.  Now that the riff-raff is gone let’s get down to dirty talk.

Those of you who love cookie dough, you’re welcome here.
Those of you who love chocolate chip cookies are also welcome here.


Because I made a Chocolate Chip Cookie Cup filled with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

I did.

I made that.

It’s dirty.

And rich.

Be prepared to get your socks rocked.


Cookie Dough Filled Cookie Cups.
Photobucket All you have to do is make some regular cookie dough…
Photobucket Bake it in some muffin tins.
Photobucket When they’re done-ish pull them out and squish the center down.
Your filling needs a nice place to sit.
Photobucket Then make some MORE cookies dough.
BUT leave out them eggs.
Pipe it into the cookie couch you made…
Photobucket Mmm-hmm.
Photobucket Dude. That’s it.
Now eat.
Photobucket And don’t you dare say that they’re too rich.
I’ll find you and it won’t be pretty.
Photobucket If that’s not enough cookie dough for you…

Fortunately (or unfortunately?) nothing is ever too rich for me, I’d love these!

May 15, 2012 8:16 am

Holy moly!!! These look to. die. for. P.S. I love your ‘new’ picture on the side bar! (New, because I don’t know if it’s new or if I just hadn’t looked over there in a while.) 😀

May 15, 2012 8:18 am

No such thing as too rich or too sweet. These are genius, I love it!

May 15, 2012 8:21 am

How many marriage proposals do you receive per day based on these treats?!

I must try these ASAP.

May 15, 2012 9:29 am

“COOKIE COUCH?” This is a phrase I need to hear more often.

May 15, 2012 9:35 am

I hate when people say stuff is too rich. Honestly, it’s basically an insult. They’re saying your dessert is unedible.

I would eat these any day. No complaints.

May 15, 2012 9:45 am

Cookie dough is my love language. I will be trying these asap. Genius!

May 15, 2012 9:55 am

This is EVIL and AMAZING. All I want is cookie dough for the rest of my meals, yessirree.

May 15, 2012 10:13 am

Ya right!!!! This is insane…

May 15, 2012 10:15 am

Oh yum!! There would be no problem over here eating a few of those rich and yummy cookie cups!!! Gone in no time I tell you!! Love me some cookie dough!!!

May 15, 2012 10:47 am

Wow, cookie dough galore! Great idea!!

May 15, 2012 10:52 am

I want. Really bad. Grabbing the milk, pop some in the oven and I’ll be there soon.

May 15, 2012 11:06 am

Shelly, fabulous! Ive been reading Lindsay/Love & Olive Oil’s new cookbook and she has sooo many amazing cookie dough recipes in it, and now I see this. I need to get crackin’ on cookie dough making!

Wow! This looks so yummy! I will surely try this when I get home. Do you think adding colors to it would be nice? I hope so!

Thanks for asking!


May 15, 2012 1:05 pm

I definetly cannot let my husband see this post. He will divorve me immediately and try to look you up!

May 15, 2012 1:56 pm

I want to just eat that filling with a spoon. I am in trouble (in a good way!) with these, Shelly! You rock.

May 15, 2012 1:58 pm

Ooohhhhhh!!!!! I love to take two warm chocolate chip cookies and put cookie dough between them. This sounds like a similar idea, but less messy!

May 15, 2012 2:15 pm

Wonderfully wicked. You are my hero!

May 15, 2012 2:41 pm

I have never and WILL never utter the phrase, “that is too sweet.” Who are those people?!?

Shelly…these make me very, very happy. I think this recipe is going to propel me into “best mom ever” status with the kiddo.

May 15, 2012 2:54 pm

There’s so much I want to saaaaaaaay!

Firstly: This here recipe is genius. This is it!
Secondly: I will have to remember your disclaimer – it is also genius. I will use it the next time someone whines about buttercream being “too buttery” – get outta here!
Thirdly (is that a word? Yes I think?) you are gorgeous in your new pic! Love it!

May 15, 2012 3:02 pm

Holy Cow! I am fixing to make these NOW! My daughter just said we HAVE to a make these for a snack tonight! If I make them now, they will be my snack and supper too! It is healthy right? I mean it does have milk in it:-)

looks so yummy!!! Any tips for making cupcakes have a pretty dome shape?

May 15, 2012 3:14 pm

Nice! Our standard family chocolate chip cookie recipe has mint instead of vanilla, which kindof hides any richness that one might have a problem with… not that I would! 😉 NOM!

May 15, 2012 3:19 pm

Ahhhhh-mazing! I don’t think there’s such a thing as too much cookie dough. Ever!

You had me at: Dude. Thats it. Ha ha. These look delicious and I WILL be making them soon!


These look SO good! I am definitely making these…you are crazy talented!


Amazing!! I did this with brownies as the base, but cookies?! Even better!

May 15, 2012 4:05 pm

Oh my, I think these are better than the cookie dough stuffed cupcakes!

May 15, 2012 4:58 pm

These look fabulous! My daughter wants me to make them right away.

I do have a couple questions: what tip did you use to pipe the filling? and do these need to be refrigerated? thanks!

May 15, 2012 6:33 pm

all I can say is OMG!!!! I am trying to think of a way to make them even more sinful. icing???

May 15, 2012 6:46 pm

The first time I heard my mother say, “Oh! This is just too rich!” I was 15 and almost certain I was adopted.

I think she would say that these were too rich…

thankfully…my father would LOVE them!

May 15, 2012 8:17 pm

Perfect for National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!!! Love it!!!

May 15, 2012 8:21 pm

You’re killin’ me with this. Just killing me! I’m in love.

May 15, 2012 8:45 pm

I’ve never understood this “too rich” or “too sweet” business. My father and brother try to use it on me all the time. But I just won’t have it!
