The Inception cookie is a cookie within a cookie. My initial thoughts when I first saw them was UGH, THAT’S EXCESSIVE. Like I could get my fill of dessert just by looking at them. But it’s absolutely hilarious and I think that’s the only reason I made them.
For my Inception cookies, I used the soft chocolate chip cookie recipe on this blog and stuffed them with a bunch of different store-bought cookies. Here’s the cookie dough which has lots of chocolate chips and toasted walnuts. I halved the original recipe and used whole wheat flour because it’s all I had. That was probably a good thing what with the cookie overload that was about to ensue.
Once the cookie dough is ready, have the store-bought cookies unwrapped and ready to go. Go inside the cookie dough, that is.
Bake in an oven preheated to 175 C/350 F until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
Yes, my Inception cookies are ginormous. I gotta admit, biting into these cookies to find out what was inside was pretty fun.
I was slightly worried that this might be too much chocolate but it wasn’t and the strawberry flavor was a nice fresh twist.
Peanut Butter-Stuffed Vanilla Cookie
Aesthetically ho-hum but come on, peanut butter + chocolate is a no-brainer.
Chocolate Mallow Cookie
Fun to look at but waaaay too sweet. And now for a savory twist –
Butter Crackers With Bacon Spread
This one was my favorite. Savory sweet always wins! Makes me wanna do something with real bacon next time. And by next time I mean very far in the future – I felt pretty sick after eating four cookies.
Which is why I’m gonna do a Fun Movie Fact instead: The haunting song in Inception entitled Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien was sung by Edith Piaf, a character that was played by one of the movie’s stars Marion Cotillard. How Inception!
