Have you ever heard of the Pillsbury Million Dollar Double-Delight Peanut Butter Cookie? Someone won ONE MILLION dollars for this recipe. Click on the link above, you will see that it is fairly basic. I was extremely cynical and skeptical about this cookie - how can it be worth that much prize money?? That was before I made it. Um, make it. It's worth every penny.
It even inspired me to try different variations of a stuffed cookie, and lately I've been craving Snickerdoodles. If I started a band, I think that's what I would name it. I stuffed this cookie with a cream cheese, powdered sugar, cinnamon mixture - it tasted like frosting. Okay, I won't ask for one million dollars for these, but if someone wouldn't mind writing me a check for $10,000... thanks.
(Makes 12-16 cookies)
1 pkg Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough, chilled
1/2 cup softened cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375. In a small bowl, mix sugar and 1/2 tsp of the cinnamon. Save for later. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and the remaining 1 tsp cinnamon. Stir until smooth. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes.
Slice cookie dough log into desired amount of cookies - I did 12. Take one slice and remove a small amount of the dough, set aside. Create a well for cream cheese stuffing. Scoop small amount, about 1/2 tsp, of stuffing into cookie.
Cover stuffing with extra reserved dough and smooth with fingers. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool before removing from baking sheet.
Let me know how much you think these are worth and I'll contact Pillsbury.
