Doughnut Hole Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I did a bad bad thing.

Do I feel guilty about it?

Not in the slightest.

Mr. just got back from a trip to Hawaii for “work”.  Yeah.  I wasn’t fooled either.  Okay, there was some work in between the fire dancers, fireworks show, and sleeping in a hotel suite with 2 bathrooms.  He tried to make me feel better by saying one was only a half bath.

Only a half bath!?  I feel much better.

So, while he was gone {slaying dragons and bringing home bacon} I decided to get a little crazy.

This week is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week.  Does this mean we get a week off from school!?

It should.

So while I was wallowing in the craziness that is my life {and not thinking about the two bathrooms where mr could pee without child interference} I had a crazy idea.

A crazy wonderful, evil genius idea.

You’ve heard of stuffed chocolate chip cookies, right!?  I’m pretty sure we have the genius that is Picky Palate to “blame” for that.

You can blame me for this obscenity that is the Doughnut Hole Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week!

Now go eat a salad

Doughnut Hole Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: about 36 cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 30-36 glazed original doughnut holes


  1. Preheat oven 325°
  2. Cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, and add the vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl sift together the salt, soda, and flour.
  4. Add the flour and stir until completely incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  5. To form the cookies get a heaping tablespoonful of cookie dough. Roll into a ball and flatten. Place the doughnut hole in the middle and wrap the cookie dough around it making sure to seal it completely. Set in on a baking sheet, avoiding the desire to flatten it.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool completely.
