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 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
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.
