Freshly Baked Double Doozies

It wasn’t until my first trip to Florida that Stephen introduced me to the double doozie. It consists of a layer of frosting sandwiched between two giant chocolate chip or M&M cookies. I had never heard of or thought of such a thing. Probably because I’m not a huge fan of frosting… a little goes a long way, people. But after taking a few bites, I began to see just how addicting these things could be! Now it seems like every time we’re near a mall with a Great American Cookies, we have to pick up a few (and some unfrosted cookies for me). Earlier this week I felt like making cookies and wanted to be a little creative, so I made my own version. I’d say these are just as good as the one’s you’d get from the mall, if not a little better. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup mini M&Ms or chocolate chips
filling
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter - room temperature
  • 3-4 Tbsp milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars. Add vanilla and egg, mix until incorporated.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, sift flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix in dry ingredients, one cup at a time, until smooth.
  • Add M&M’s or chocolate chips, gently fold in.
  • Place cookies on sheet using a standard scoop. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. (Since I made giant cookies I used 2 scoops of dough, patted them together, put 6 on a sheet, flattened them, and baked them for 14 minutes).
  • Remove from oven and let cool on sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While cookies are cooling, prepare frosting by beating together butter, milk, salt and extracts until light and fluffy. With mixing speed on low, slowly add the powdered sugar. Beat for 2-3 minutes. Pipe (or spread) onto cookies & sandwich.
