Chocolate Chip Doozies

Posted by Lori:
Our children enjoy getting cookies at the mall from time to time.  They especially like the ones with the icing in the middle.  It always makes me think of my Grandpa Gene when I buy them the cookies.  If he was ever with us at the mall, he just couldn't understand how anyone could pay a dollar (or more!) for a cookie.  I don't ever remember him getting one, but if he had, he might have been "hooked" like his great-grandkids are!

Our son, Zachary, decided recently he would duplicate the mall cookies.  He and his big sister already had their favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, but he went online and searched for an icing recipe to go in between.  His "doozies" were quite a success and a new favorite in our household.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter (not margarine), softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 small package (3.5 ounce) instant vanilla pudding mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.  In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.  Add pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix well.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Drop by spoonfuls (or use cookie scoops...Zachary used a 1 inch cookie scoop for the little doozies) onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from cookie sheets and cool on wire racks.  When cool, place in airtight container or make into "Doozies".

Doozie Icing
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter (not margarine), softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk

In a large bowl, cream together butter and shortening.  Add vanilla.  Blend in the powdered sugar - one cup at a time - beating well in between additions.  Add milk and mix until light and fluffy.  Spread bottom of one chocolate chip cookie with the doozie icing.  Top with another chocolate chip cookie (bottom of cookie to the icing side) to form doozie.

that's one of my favorite things to do too...searching the internet for recipes! Although I've learned to try to use ones that have reviews posted!
