Stuffed sugar cookies for Sara’s birthday

I asked my goddaughter Sara what treat I could bring for her 9th birthday party and she said “sugar cookies stuffed with brownies. ”  ask and ye shall receive.  I used a brownie mix (shhhh.  Don’t tell) and  my Swig sugar cookie recipe.  The cookie  dough can be a little soft, so you may want to add a little extra flour to the dough or flour your hands when stuffing the dough with the brownies to make the process easier. 

I always have this issue when I make treats.  I have too much cookie dough, brownies, frosting etc.  This time I had some leftover brownies, so I whipped up a little frosting and made suzy q’s in brownie form. (Pic at end  of blog)

Onto the brownie stuffed sugar cookies!

Ingredients – brownies (either a mix or your favorite recipe), prepared as directed and  cooled. I cut them into 24 squares and cut off any edges. 

Cookies – 1/2 cup butter,  1/4 cup + 1/8 cup oil, 1/2 cup + 1/8 cup sugar, 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup powdered sugar, 1 egg, 2 1/2 tsp water, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 3/4 cups flour, 1/4 tsp baking soda,  1/4 tsp cream of tartar, 1/4 tsp salt.

Directions – mix butter, oil, sugar and powdered sugar.  Add egg, water and vanilla.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Using floured hands, scoop out 3 tbs cookie dough and form around each brownie.  Chill 1 hour.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners, stagger 8 cookies to a sheet.  Bake 10 to 11 minutes (lightly golden on bottom).  Let cool on sheet 5 minutes.  Remove from sheet and cool completely.   Store in covered container.

Here are my suzy q brownies!
