Willowbird Baking’s Challenge #2 is for filled cookie. Think of  a cookie that has a surprise middle or something that isn’t a usual filling, say an oreo like these from Picky Palate. This was Julie’s inspiration for this challenge. I had two ideas in mind. One was for a filled snickerdoodle and the other was to take a cookie that my mom makes at Christmastime and instead of it being a thumbprint type cookie, I turned it into a filled cookie. She makes a Sachertorte cookie, a chocolate butter cookie with cherry preserves and melted chocolate drizzled over the top. They are a family favorite. I prefer them frozen. I know. I’m weird. I chose this one because I found a lot of recipes similar to the filled snickerdoodle one, and I wanted to do something a little different. Although I may do the other one soon. No one has made exactly what I was planning. Yet.

Making these Sachertorte cookies filled was a bit of a challenge since its not normally a solid filling. I had to work in stages of chilling and layering. Chocolate dipping a cherry is one thing, but chocolate dipping cherry preserves is a whole ‘nother animal. ha  Once I had them filled these puppies were BIG. I got a dozen out of my batch of dough. I think my mom’s original recipe makes like 4 dozen ha ha.

I could only fit 6 on my baking sheet at a time. I can normally bake a dozen cookies easily on these sheets. I’m telling you these were BIG.

A lot of the sugar got baked in. I am thinking if I do these again I may roll in turbinado sugar, a more coarse sugar, just because I like the look and the crunch of the coarser sugar.

I was kind of bummed that the filling wasn’t pronounced as I thought it would be. The chocolate didn’t melt into the cookie as it baked, I just was having a hard time getting it to show up on pics. These taste really good, but don’t photograph all that well.

Still a really fun challenge to participate in. Thanks again Julie!! This was a challenging one for sure, can’t wait to see what’s next!
