Cookie Monster Cookies

Cookie Monster Cookies

These Cookie Monster Cookies are perfect for Sesame Street themed parties. A blue think and chewy sugar cookie full of chocolate chip cookies pieces and a whole mini chocolate chip cookie on top.

I have to say these might have been the coolest cookies I have ever made. I brought them to a family gathering and I’m pretty sure I am now the coolest Aunt amongst my nephews. The kids loved the cookies and thought they were so fun!

These cookies are also very easy to make! My two young children helped me make a batch and were very impressed with the blue colour. A little trick, if you want to bake with your kids too, have some extra mini chocolate chip cookies out. My kids kept trying to take the cookie chunks out of the dough to eat.

Next, cut your mini chips ahoy chocolate chip cookies into quarters until you have 1 cup worth. Set aside.

In a large bowl or in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment on beat butter and white sugar together until light and fluffy. This usually takes about 3 minutes. Add in the egg, blue food colouring, and vanilla and mix till well incorporated.

In a separate large bowl whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix till combined.

Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Cool on the cookie tray for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

CAN I MAKE THE COOKIES SMALLER?

Yes, you can definitely make these cookies half the original size. Bake them for 7-8 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

Like most cookies, they should be stored in an airtight container or zip lock bag at room temperature. The cookies should stay fresh if stored properly for four days.

    I made 5 batches of them in red for a Pentacost church social this Sunday. I call them Elmo cookies. I did a lot of short term freezing of the dough columns on the baking sheets, added 2 extra spoons of flour to each batch, and still needed to get in and shape up the cookies with a spoon and reposition the chips ahoy mini as they baked. They are cute for kids and are tasty.

    Addendum to above: I make great pies with homemade crusts, biscotti, and pizzelles but not cookies, so I found this process educational. By the 8th and final batch, I feel that I reached perfection. I always use an oven thermometer, and I found that after 12 minutes, these cookies were spread out and uncooked. At this point, I reshaped them with a spoon as you suggested. Only then did I place the center mini chips ahoy. I baked them another 8 minutes and they were perfectly shaped with a centered chip which was not covered by dough. I am sure this method will work for many other cookies.
