Cookies and Cream Cookies

Pin It
Well, by the time you read this, my beach getaway will be coming to an end. :(
That's sad for me, but I have good news for you...I have one more cookie recipe to share with you for my Cookie Week mini-extravaganza! 

Cookies and Cream Cookies!
I originally saw this recipe on Cookies and Cups.  (Love!)  I happen to really like this particular post of hers because she writes about letting go...letting go of the "5 pounds from now clothes".  It's funny, and I can relate!  Go check her out.  :)
After you do that, make these cookies!

You can use either Hershey's Cookies and Creme Drops or chopped up Cookies and Creme candy bars (also Hershey's).  Either way, they help create one fabulous cookie!


Cookies and Cream Cookies
Source:  very slightly adapted from Cookies and Cups
(get the printable recipe here )

Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder*
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
12 oz. Hershey's Cookies and Creme Drops or coarsely chopped Cookies and Creme candy bars

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Slowly beat in cocoa powder until well blended.
Mix in the rest of the dry ingredients.
Fold in Cookies and Creme Drops and chocolate chips.
Drop by large tablespoonful onto cookie sheets and bake for about 12 minutes, or until edges are just set.
Let cool on cookies sheets for 2-3 minutes before moving cookies to wire rack to cool completely.

*I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder and it worked out great.  I think regular cocoa powder would work just as well.
