Brownie stuffed chocolate chip cookies

I love to stuff cookies and experiment with different combinations.  I have used candy bars, oreos, small homemade s’mores.  Just about anything works. (A little tip – If you use candy, freeze the bars first.  Easier to stuff the cookies). You can also use whatever cookie recipe you want.  For this particular recipe, I chose chocolate chip cookies and brownies.  Bake the brownies ahead of time, using whatever recipe you want. Let them cool.  You can cut them I to squares (discarding the edges) or roll them into balls.

For the cookies – 1 cup shortening,  cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tbs water, 1 tbs vanilla, 2 eggs,  3 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 cups chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream shortening, sugar and brown sugar about 1 minute.   Add vanilla, water and eggs.  Fold in dry ingredients slowly.  Mix in chips. (You can also add in nuts if you want).  Using an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop to scoop out dough.  Divide piece of dough in half and form around each brownie.  Place on silpat lined cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 for 12 to 18 min. They are lightly browned in spots on top.   I took mine out at 15 minutes.  Let them cool on sheet for 10 minutes.  Move to container to finish cooling.  Store covered up to 4 days. ( For a fresh baked cookie, microwave them for 10 seconds )
