The third step of making the perfect chocolate-filled cookies is to chill the dough. This step is critical because it allows the butter time to firm up and helps the dough hold its shape during baking.
To give your dough that extra chill, simply place it in a sealed plastic bag and pop it in the refrigerator. It’s important you let your dough rest for at least 4 hours, this gives all of the wonderful flavors time to blend together. The resting time not only improves the taste but also helps create a crunchy exterior with a chewy interior—the perfect cookie texture.
After four hours have passed, take your cookie dough out of the bag and let it sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before rolling it out and shaping it into balls. Working with warm dough makes it easier to shape into little circles of goodness!
Now it's time to get your hands a bit messy! To roll out the dough, you'll need a rolling pin and a floured surface.
Start by sprinkling your floured surface with some more flour. Place the ball of dough in the middle, then use the rolling pin to roll outward in one direction, then in a circular motion. Keep adding flour to the dough and surface as needed so that it doesn't stick together.
Roll out the dough until it's about 1/8-inch thick—this will help ensure that your cookies are thick enough to hold all that delicious filling! Once the dough is rolled out, cut it into circles and transfer them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
If you're ready for the best part of the chocolate-filled cookies—the part that's going to get all your taste buds singing—it's time to add the chocolate!
To do this, take a small handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and place them in the center of each cookie. Don't be tempted to add too much; each chip should be slightly larger than a dime in size.
Once all your cookies have their chocolate filling, place them back on the baking sheet and then pop them in the oven for 8 minutes. Keep an eye on them as they bake, and take them out when they look golden brown and delicious.
Now comes the hard part: waiting for them to cool down before you dive in!
The last step, and the most satisfying one, is to put your cookies in the oven and watch them turn golden brown. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit before baking.
Place your cookie sheets with the cookie dough balls onto the middle rack of your preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until your cookies are lightly golden brown around the edges. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Once they're done baking, take out the tray and admire your handiwork! Delicious chocolate-filled cookies are now ready to be devoured. Enjoy!
