Cookie Monster's Surprise cookies




I've been meaning to make these cookies ever since I saw them in this volume of The Sesame Street Library.

We only have two volumes of these old books from the 70s. 



You'll need Cookie Monster's Famous Cookie Dough to make these(which is in Volume 1).

You will also need fillings. Cookie Monster suggests nuts, raisins, jam, jellybeans, chocolate chips, peanut butter and chocolate mint patties.


Cookie Monster's Famous Cookie Dough

3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.
Add flour, salt and baking powder, mix to a soft dough.
Chill dough for an hour.



Cookie Monster's Surprise Cookies

Preheat oven to 200C.

Roll dough out flat(about 5mm thick) on a well floured surface.
Use a 6mm cookie cutter to cut rounds.
Put a little filling(about a teaspoon) on one of your cookies.
Now put another cookie on top.
Pinch edges together to keep filling inside.
Do this with LOTS of cookies, with LOTS of different fillings.

Place cookies on ungreased tray. Put in oven and cook until lightly browned. About 10 minutes.

We used choc chips and some Milky bar 'cookies and cream'.

Peanut butter and choc chips, and strawberry jam.

You get a surprise every time you have a cookie!

    1. I so remember these, but I don't actually remember us having any. Must have had them at the school library or something.
