Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2012

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies are to die for! Rich, decadent, amazing! I reblogged this amazing cookie last summer and finally got around to making it for the holidays. I took it last night to our church’s holiday fine arts and music gala as I had 2 dessert tables loaded down with assorted Christmas cookies for folks to enjoy during intermission. I had several people rave about this cookie and others wanted to take them home to eat.

This wonderful chocolate cookie has a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie dough filling, but the great thing about this chocolate chip cookie dough filling is it has no eggs so there’s no chance of salmonella poisoning. The icing is extremely rich and I applied it about a half-inch thick. This whoopie pie was spectacular and one we will make many times in the future. I think you will really enjoy these amazing whoopie pies. Give them a try soon and watch your company swoon.

I originally made this recipe back in December of 2012. My pictures were not only deplorable, they were embarrassing….too much Christmas stuff in the background and the cookies looked awful. I recently remade these cookies, this time going back to the original source and they turned out SO much better. My original cookies were too flat in appearance. I still added additional flour to this batch because after feeling the texture of the dough I wanted to make sure they would puff up correctly. That extra addition of flour made these glorious whoopie pies turn out spectacularly! I also decided to pipe the cookie dough onto the cookies and that made for a lot neater, smoother appearance than my original batch in 2012.

In retaking the pictures I believe I’ve more adequately captured what these lovely cookies should actually look like! All I can say is these cookies are awesome! They are like a meal unto themselves! I used a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop to measure the dough, but if you don’t want your cookies so large, a 1/8 cup ice cream scoop will do just as well. Using the ice cream scoop allows the cookies to come out more uniform in appearance and not misshapen from just dropping dough onto a cookie sheet (my least favorite way to make cookies!)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies are the real deal. I can’t recommend them enough for your holiday baking list, potlucks, backyard barbecues, office parties, or anytime you want a dose of chocolate! 🙂 You and all your friends will fall in LOVE with this outrageous cookie!

If you’re looking for a wonderful chocolate cookie with chocolate chip cookie dough icing in the middle, this cookie is the BEST!

 

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients for the chocolate whoopie pies.

Soften butter and place in mixing bowl. Add Crisco shortening. Don’t use cheap substitutes. Add brown sugar, eggs, baking soda, salt and vanilla.

Mix ingredients with an electric mixer and cream well.

Add cocoa and heavy whipping cream.

Mix all the ingredients together with an electric mixer until well combined.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods.

Stir flour into other ingredients with a wooden spoon and combine again.

Using either a one-eighth cup or one-quarter cup ice cream scoop, scoop dough and place on greased baking sheets about 2-3 inches apart. I leveled off the cookie dough with a knife.

Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or when whoopie pie springs back lightly when touched with the finger tip. These were whoopers but they were done by that time.

I added additional flour and that’s why the whoopie pies puffed up so nicely.

Meanwhile, make icing ingredients: Soften butter. Add brown sugar, white sugar, milk and vanilla. Mix all the ingredients together with an electric mixer.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add miniature chocolate chips.

Stir flour and chocolate chips into batter with a wooden spoon. Don’t use an electric mixer as that will toughen the dough. Because this recipe does not have eggs in the cookie dough batter, you won’t have to worry about salmonella poisoning.

Scoop all of the chocolate chip cookie dough into a plastic bag and press the dough into one corner. Cut off the tip so you can pipe the cookie dough over top of the whoopie pies.

Swirl the chocolate chip cookie dough onto the bottom of the whoopie pies. I used more cookie dough on my subsequent whoopie pies.

Place another whoopie pie on top of the cookie dough filling.

    Is there a typo in the cookie dough recipe is it 2 sticks of butter? Or is it actually 2 whole cups of butter like the recipe says?

      Teresa March 13, 2016 (1:38 pm)

      Hi Brittany. What I had done is double the icing ingredients without doubling the cookie dough ingredients. I changed the icing ingredients back to a half batch. The original recipe only makes 8 cookies. So if you only want 8 cookies you will only need 1 cup (2 sticks butter) for the icing. If you want 16 cookies you will really need 2 cups (4 sticks butter) for the icing ingredients alone. Hope this helps.

      They were SO fabulous. Words can’t even describe how wonderful they tasted. You can pipe the frosting on if you want them to look prettier. Everyone who came by my dessert table and had one of these cookies brought other people to the table to get one! LOL!

      These are SO rich! You probably shouldn’t eat more than a quarter of one at any given time to prevent sugar-induced coma! Yes, when I bake a bunch of these I share them and don’t leave them here for me to eat all by myself!

      They are amazing! I recommend you make them for a party or company or something where you can save out a couple for yourself and give the rest away! 🙂 They are so rich if you ate more than one or two you probably would go into a diabetic coma!

      Thanks. They aren’t as pretty as they would be if I piped the filling but I did slather on the icing pretty thick. Everyone who tasted one last night just loved them!
