These cookies are sure to be a hit with kids! Though there’s no actual “dirt” in these, the coating certainly does look like dirt, hence the name. Not only that, they use store-bought sandwich cookies in both the dough and the coating. Absolute cookie inception.
What you need
- 16 sandwich cookies
- 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup salted butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup & 2 tablespoons white chocolate chips (I used a white chocolate bar that I crushed up)
How you do it
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Taking apart the sandwich cookies, divide the cookies and creme. In a bowl by its self, mash the creme and set aside.
- Crush the cookies as finely as possible (using a food processor helps). Add in the unsweetened cocoa powder and set aside.
- Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
- In stand mixer (or separate bowl), mix together the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
- Add in the eggs and vanilla.
- Alternating with the creme from the sandwich cookies, add in the flour in three batches.
- Stir in the white chocolate chips. By this point, the dough will be the consistency of drop cookies: sticky and difficult to shape. Put dough into fridge for 15 minutes to help it firm up.
- After dough has chilled, roll dough into tablespoon-sized dough the best of your ability. It’s okay if the dough doesn’t completely hold it’s shape. Drop into cookie and cocoa powder mixture, covering completely.
- Put on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 12-15 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown. Let cool for a few minutes, then enjoy!
I love that all of these have different designs–no two are alike!
And the white chocolate adds texture and flavor.
Give these a go, and you’ll find yourself eating several at a time–they’re just that addictive! Until next time,
