Cookies n Cream

My little guy loves helping me in the kitchen and has been since he was able to stand up. Growing up I had always wished I had one of those moms who let me bake with her, but since I never did, I always told myself that I would do all of those things with my kids that I missed out on. T just turned 7 a month ago and I have to say that he is better in the kitchen than a lot of adults. We always work together and he knows not to touch certain adult tools, but it always makes me smile when I look over at him and see him filling the tablespoon the correct way or holding the bowl while he mixes so it does not spill.

Last month we were talking on to my family on Skype and my cousin was asking me the recipe for those little cookies with a Hershey kiss on top. As soon as T saw them that is all he spoke about about and him and his baba went to the store the other day he bought everything that we would need to make them. However, when he came home he has the cookies ‘n’ cream, candy bars in place of the kisses. He said that he had an idea to use those and he knew it would be much better. I was on board with whatever since they were for him after all.

We do not eat very many sweets so I just made a small batch for him and although I do not like white chocolate I have to admit these cookies were really awesome.

1/2 stick softened butter
2/3 cups all purpose flour
6 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cookies ‘n’ cream bars, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 375F. In a mixing bowl, add butter, sugar, vanilla, baking soda and salt. With a hand mixer, beat until fluffy.

2. Add egg and flour, mix, then fold in candy car pieces. On a nonstick baking mat on a baking sheet, add a heaping tablespoon of dough an inch apart. Bake for 11 minutes. Allow to cool before servings.

Yields: 11 cookies

  • These looks like the perfect little cookies Noor and high five to your little helper! Baarak Allahu Feekum

    • Thank you, dear. They did turn out perfect and what a great little recipe.

  • Those do look delicious. My favorite cookies are the kind with the Hershey’s Kiss on top, and I even substitute the peppermint kisses during the holidays, but these look really creamy and good. I’ll definitely have to try and make a batch of these next time I’m in the mood for cookies.

    • I love those as well and plan to make them. The kisses are a bit expensive here and no one in my house will eat peanut butter cookies or a big chunk of chocolate. I plan to make some small bacth sometime though.

  • I’m not a chocolate fan, but I’ve always had a soft spot for this candy bar. And now I think I need to make these and not share with anyone. lol

    • You know for some reason I thought this was only a Saudi candy bar and I’m realizing it’s everywhere. The candy bars are so different here.

  • I received that chocolate a couple of months ago as a gift. And it is so damn good, so I can imagine how it must have tasted ‘baked’ into glorious cookies. And I never had the experience of helping around in the kitchen either, my mother never baked and cooking is almost always too dangerous for little ‘people’ to be scurrying in the kitchen. But I do hope to establish this trend in my (future) family too In shaa Allah. You’ve done a great job on Talal!

    • I saw your goodies and they looked good. I just love getting new things. Pringles is one of Americas favorite chips and my son loves them. What else was in there? You can really use any sort of candy or chocolate in these. When you only have one kid things are so much easier I doubt I could do all of this with more than one. Thanks sweetie you’re always so kind. You really deserve nothing, but the best.
