>Tim Tam Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

We talked about Tim Tams last week when I made Tim Tam chunk cookies.

They were delicious, and I wanted to do more with the Tim Tams, get bigger chunks of them in my cookies, and get some chocolate in there too.

So I made these.

Think: gooey cookie and melted chocolate chip layer, chocolate layer, biscuit layer, chocolate creme layer, another biscuit layer, more chocolate, then another layer of chewy chocolate chip cookie.

How could you possibly resist?

I made a huge batch of these, the majority of which went to my boyfriend. It was our anniversary, so we went out for drinks, then then to dinner at Longrain (DELICIOUS!!!), and then I gave him cookies.

Cookie presents have kind of become a tradition with us.

Isn’t that cute?

It’s only because I’m obsessed with cookies, really.

As if to prove that point, I ate devoured the rest of these cookies for breakfast.

Because I absolutely loooooved these chewy/crunchy/chocolate-y cookies, and just couldn’t resist.

Cookie dough recipe adapted from Picky Palate.

220g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup)
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 packets Tim Tams (16 biscuits) cut in half

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 3 trays with baking paper.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until combined and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla.

Turn the mixer onto a low speed and slowly add the flour, salt and soda, mixing until just incorporated. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.

Using a medium cookie scoop or heaped tablespoon, scoop balls of the dough. Place a ball of dough in the palm of your hand and flatten it well. Place half a Tim Tam in the center and fold the edges of the dough over, using your fingers to pinch them together and shape the dough around the Tim Tam.

Place on baking trays and bake for about 1o minutes, until lightly golden. Makes 32 cookies.

>Tim Tam Chunk Cookies

I made nougat the other day. I made it for my boss to sell in his cafe.

I don’t like nougat. I got so angry at it. It wouldn’t spread into the pan. It refused to be cut into pieces. It just annoyed me so much that by the end I didn’t even want to take photos of it.

So I made you these cookies instead.

Now, this is a Tim Tam.

It is a pretty iconic Australian biscuit, or cookie, in the same way Oreos are iconically American. Except as far as I know, Tim Tams are only sold here.

Tim Tams are pretty awesome. They are a little similar to an Oreo, in that they are two biscuits sandwiched together by a creme layer that’s in the middle. Except the biscuits layers in a Tim  Tam are light and crumbly, and the creme is chocolate flavoured. And then the whole thing is coated in a layer of chocolate.

You can get all sorts of flavours too, but original are the best. Actually, double coated are pretty good too.

Anyway. These Cookies and Cream Cookies were a huge hit in my household, and in my mouth. So I made them with Tim Tams.

Bits of chocolate biscuit, chocolate creme and chocolate all through my cookie. What’s not to love?

Cookie dough adapted from Nestle Toll House.

220g unsalted butter (1 cup, 2 sticks)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1 packet of Tim Tams (11 biscuits)

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line baking trays with parchment paper.

Chop each Tim Tam into 10 pieces and set aside.

Beat the butter and sugars together using an electric mixer until combined. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.

Mix in the flour, salt and baking soda on a low speed until combined. Add the Tim Tam pieces and mix until just combined (eat some raw dough, its amazing!).

Scoop tablespoons of dough onto baking trays and bake for 9-10 minutes. Makes 36 cookies.
