Some of the best stuffed cookie recipes are waiting for you to uncover. With this post, you never have to wonder what to have for dessert anymore. These simple cookie recipes are easy to alter depending on the ingredients available in your kitchen.
So don’t just make regular plain flavored cookies, all you have to do is use your imagination to come up with stuffing you like. Commonly, you want to elevate the flavor by using chocolate or caramel.
Whether you’re hungry or not, it’s always an enjoyable experience to munch away on some of the most classic cookies with sweet stuffing. That’s why I want to satisfy your sweet tooth by offering you a wide variety of recipes to test out by yourself at home.
Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes.
Brownie stuffed cookies are something that I can’t decide between a cookie and a brownie. The recipe is a fascinating hybrid of soft cookies with sweet and earthy brownies as the filling. If you’re looking for a brand new dessert to impress your family, then this is the recipe to go for.
To make the brownie, people tend to utilize a combination of flour, cocoa powder, and butter. In addition, you may want to add chocolate chips and dark chocolate to enhance the overall chocolaty flavor.
For the dough, I like a mix of flour with baking soda, cornflour, and butter. Ideally, you want to bake the brownie first, so it has some time to cool down while you’re dealing with the cookie. Then, use the dough to wrap around the brownie.
Bake your delicious treat combination in the oven for around 15 minutes to get a nice golden color on the cookie. Plus, the brownie filling also gets a gooey texture that is addicting for both kids and adults.
Total time: 1 hour (with 30 minutes of chilling).
What is the perfect way to express your love to your family? Mine is by making a delicious spring cookie based on the soft and fluffy strawberry cheesecake. Aside from the beautiful strawberry chunks, the cookies also have a mesmerizing cream cheese filling.
In some cases, people even use frozen strawberries to add to the dough. However, fresh strawberries are always a better choice. It’s mainly because the frozen strawberries contain too much moisture, making it harder to work with the dough.
As for the cookies, they are made by mixing all-purpose flour with baking soda, eggs, and vanilla extract. I suggest throwing in the fresh strawberries after you’re done mixing the dough. Since the strawberries are prone to bruising, make sure to fold the mixture gently.
The cream cheese filling is a simple blend of cream cheese with powdered sugar. I usually whisk the concoction until it has a certain smooth consistency. People often shape the dough around the cream cheese filling and bake until the edge is golden brown.

Nutella alone is already addicting enough, but it’s even better if you can turn it into a delectable filling for a cookie dessert. The moment you bite into these sweet creations, an explosion of chocolate and hazelnut flavor will flood your mouth.
Instead of using warm butter for the cookie, the recipe calls for the cold variety to get a thicker cookie. The rest of the ingredients are relatively similar to the regular cookie recipes above. However, it works even better if you use cold eggs.
I know it’s no easy task to work with Nutella when it’s at room temperature. So I recommend scooping the Nutella into small portions and chilling them for an hour in the freezer. Afterward, it’s so much easier to work the dough around the Nutella before baking.
As a reminder: This recipe produces thicker cookies than conventional soft and fluffy cookies. Therefore, the texture is a little chewier than usual as well.
Total time: 25 minutes.
These cookies are bursting with delicious creamy peanut butter filling. The recipe is an easy non-gluten cookie to make as you can also use store-bought ingredients to cut down your time on some preparation steps.
Let’s start with the dough mixture. My pick of ingredients is gluten-free all-purpose flour with baking soda, Xanthan gum (a thickening agent), and peanut butter. To add to that, people also take a whole peanut butter cup to add to the center of the dough to be the main focus.
After the oven finishes baking the cookie, it’s best to remove your treats while they are warm completely to prevent them from falling apart. Furthermore, I suggest serving the cookies when they are completely cool.
Total time: 45 minutes.
Everyone loves the iconic crumbly chocolate cookie with a white vanilla filling of Oreo. But I have a better way to elevate the flavor of these treats to a whole new level. Stuffing the Oreo chunks between dough will give you a new option to enjoy this dessert.
The base mixture of the dough is similar to regular recipes. However, I like putting a bit more twist by putting in white chocolate chips for an extra sweet and buttery flavor. Furthermore, people even fold in Oreo crumbles before chilling the dough in the refrigerator.
To assemble the cookie, scoop a decent amount of dough and roll it into a small ball. Make sure you keep some space between the cookies on the baking tray. Commonly, the cookies need around 9 – 11 minutes to perfectly bake in the oven.
As a reminder: You should rest the cookie for some time after baking, so its structure has time to become stable.
Total time: 4 hours.
Nothing represents a dessert better than a gooey and sticky S’more stuffed cookie. If you’re unfamiliar with S’more, it’s a popular US treat by the campfire. People usually toast the marshmallow over an open fire before placing it over a cracker with chocolate for consumption.
You won’t need an open flame in this recipe to make your S’more. Instead, people only sandwich the marshmallow between the dough pieces. To put it short, you want to wrap the S’more in a layer of cookie dough before popping it into the oven.
I’ll spare you some reading time because you can just use conventional cookie batter recipes to make the dough. In addition, I like throwing in some chocolate chips to make the dessert even more chocolaty.
After wrapping the S’more with the dough, you may think the cookie is way too thick. Don’t worry, because the oven’s high temperature will melt away the marshmallow, reducing the cookie’s thickness.
S’more stuffed cookie is an out-of-this-world dessert to treat your family.
Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes (with 40 minutes of chilling).
I have to admit that regular chocolate cookies taste amazing already, but I always want something more than that to treat my family. Luckily, peanut butter serves as an amazing filling for chocolate cookies.
To make the chocolate cookie, you need to use semi-sweet chocolate to combine with a standard cookie recipe. In addition, you may want to use cocoa powder to make the chocolate flavor the main attention of the cookies.
As for the peanut butter, whisk it well with powdered sugar and ground cinnamon before freezing for an hour. The freezing process makes it easier to incorporate the dough around the filling.
After you’re done combining the dough and peanut butter, give the cookies some minutes of chilling. Bake the cookies and place some chocolate chips over the surface for a final touch.
Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes.
I know everyone loves the flaky and buttery taste of a traditional apple pie, so I just can’t resist incorporating the cake into a cookie recipe. Better yet, the recipe is a perfect Thanksgiving cookie to enjoy the apple pie flavor.
The dough mixture is slightly different as it consists of all-purpose flour with unsalted butter, sugar, and salt. People even use cold water to mix the batter to incorporate the ingredients better.
The apple filling is similar to how you normally make your apple pie: A combination of apple with sugar, lemon juice, and nutmeg. To thicken the filling, I tend to resolve to cornstarch. You need around 10 minutes for the apple slices to get a soft texture.
To assemble the cookie, you need to take a piece of the dough to be the base for the apple filling. Then, cut thin strips of dough to overlay your sweet filling. Sprinkle the cookies with a copious amount of cinnamon and sugar before baking them.
9. Red Velvet Whoopie Pies
Total time: 30 minutes.
The red velvet whoopie pie is an instant banger to anyone trying it for the first time. These tasty cookie sandwiches contain 2 slices of red velvet cookies and a creamy cheese filling. Whoopie pie will surely impress many people with its vivid red color.
Most often, the red velvet batter is a combination of all-purpose flour with cocoa powder, baking soda, and unsalted butter. For the red color of the velvet cake, people mainly use red food gel to mix with the batter. Then, you want to divide the dough into small balls for baking.
To make the filling, you need to grab cream cheese to whip with powdered sugar, unsalted butter, and salt. Keep whisking the mixture until you get a fluffy and light consistency. Finally, take hold of a velvet cookie, pipe the cream filling onto it, and top it off with another.
Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes.
Salted caramel cookies take your regular pantry dessert to a whole new level. No one will ever be able to say no after giving these treats a taste. Individual cookie has a perfect amount of caramel and chocolate in every bite.
The salted caramel cookie is rather unique because it utilizes a variety of sugar like granulated sugar, brown sugar, and muscovado sugar (partially or unrefined sugar). Ideally, you want to melt sugar until no clump remains.
Pour your caramel mixture over a sheet of parchment paper to cool off. Once your caramel sheet is hardened, break it into small pieces to incorporate with the dough later on. You don’t have to break it too finely because the caramel will eventually melt during the baking process.
The flour is a basic combination of all-purpose flour with unsalted butter and baking soda. Commonly, people also sprinkle salt on the batter to complement the caramel later. I like chopping in some chocolate chunks to make the cookie even better.
If the cookies come out a bit out of shape because of the caramel, you can use a cookie cutter to give them a nice circular shape.
Total time: 2 hours 30 minutes.
The Rolo stuffed cookie is an explosion of caramel flavor right in your mouth. However, it’s so much easier to make than regular cookies. The recipe is a fine addition to your simple dessert that you can whip out whenever needed.
To cut some slack, I recommend grabbing chocolate cookie dough from your supermarket. Once you get the dough, break it up to combine with cocoa powder and whipping cream. The ingredients may be hard to mix at first, but you will eventually get them to incorporate.
While you’re at the supermarket, don’t forget to get your hands on a bag of Rolo candy, which is essentially caramel coated with chocolate. The candies serve as the filling as you need to wrap them with the dough.
When you’re done baking, drizzle some melted chocolate over the dessert surface for a final touch. Let the sweet chocolate treat cool completely before serving.
Total time: 2 hours 25 minutes (including 2 hours of chilling).
Snicker alone is already a bar of addicting chocolate and caramel flavor, but what if I tell you there’s a way to make it into yourcookies to serve on the Christmas holiday? The recipe works even better with mini snickers because their size is perfect for a chocolate filling.
I’ll spare you some reading time by using a basic dough recipe, but you may want to add peanut butter to the mix for a fragrant, nutty aroma while baking. In my experience, the dough needs around 2 hours of chilling before you can take the next step.
At this point, it’s rather simple when you just unwrap your mini snicker bar and start encasing it with dough. A small reminder: You want to carefully wrap the snicker because it may leak during the baking process. Before serving, drizzle a bit of melted chocolate for a simple decoration.
13. Homemade Oreo
Total time: 1 hour 25 minutes (with 1 hour of chilling).
When it comes to Oreos, I always love to consume them even if I’m not hungry. However, the idea of a homemade Oreo keeps lingering in my mind, that’s why I’m offering you a method to customize your very own Oreos.
The filling is the easiest blend of cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Remember, the whisking process is always simpler with a stand mixer. Otherwise, you need to work hard with your hands to get a smooth consistency on the cream filling.
To make the Oreos, I want to take you on a shortcut by using chocolate cake mix as the base. Furthermore, people throw in cocoa powder with eggs, vanilla, and melted butter. Commonly, the batter is slightly soft, but it becomes easier to work with after chilling in the refrigerator.
Split the Oreo mixture into small balls to prepare for the baking process. It takes around 12 – 16 minutes to bake the Oreos. After that, you only need to assemble it by placing the cream filling between 2 pieces of Oreos.
Total time: 28 minutes (excluding 30 minutes of chilling).
These little beautiful snowball sweets are known as Mexican wedding cookies, a traditional holiday cookie that usually appears during celebrations or wedding parties. People often lightly dust the dessert with a layer of powdered sugar for a beautiful white coating.
Traditionally, the Mexican make this sweet treat with all-purpose flour, butter, chopped pecan (or walnuts), and vanilla extract. I suggest giving the mixture a good 30 minutes rest in the refrigerator to improve the texture slightly.
However, this is where I like to include my twist to the recipe by adding a melting chocolate filling to the dessert. It’s a mouth-watering combination between nutty pecan and sweet chocolate filling.
For the filling, I use semi-sweet chocolate to place in the middle of the dough ball. Remember to roll the cookie balls a couple of times to give them a round circular shape. Once the dough turns slightly brown, it’s a sign for you to start serving your Mexican snowball dessert.
15. Pumpkin Cheesecake Snickerdoodle
Total time: 1 hour 43 minutes (including 1 hour of chilling).
Prepare to have your mind blasted away with these pumpkin cheesecake snickerdoodles. The taste is out of this world when people use pumpkin puree for the snickerdoodles. Better yet, you will love this treat because it’s a simple fall-themed cookie to make at home.
A little more information about snickerdoodle: It is a simple cookie recipe that utilizes flour, sugar, and salt to make. People often tend to roll the snickerdoodle through a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
You want to combine the pumpkin puree with the already mentioned snickerdoodle mix for this recipe. Typically the pumpkin puree gives the snickerdoodle a nice golden brown color and a certain fluffiness.
Don’t forget the creamy filling. To cut you some slack, just whisk cream cheese with powdered sugar and vanilla extract to make a simple yet smooth filling. Your snickerdoodle is not complete without a coating of sugar and cinnamon, so be sure to include this step.
Total time: 2 hours 30 minutes.
“Expect the unexpected” is a phrase you should say while serving the Dreidel surprise cookies. The recipe is one of the most iconic cookies of the Hanukkah celebration (Festival of Light) from December 18th to the end of December 26th.
These sweet treats are relatively large in terms of size, but they come with a reason. When cut open a Dreidel, it spilled out the inner contents of candies, nuts, or raisins.
The Dreidel batter starts with an all-purpose flour with sugar cookie dough as the base. To add a more nutty flavor, I prefer the addition of vanilla frosting to mix with other icings to spread over the dough mixture. When the dough is set, use your cookie cutter to make beautiful shapes.
In some cookie pieces, you want to remove the dough in the middle to make room for your M&M candy filling. People often whip up a concoction of blue frosting to decorate the Dreidel with their favorite patterns.
Total time: 30 minutes.
Don’t you just love a healthy dessert recipe with a tasty blackberry cream filling? I have just the answer for you in the form of an oatmeal sandwich cookie. The best thing about this recipe is that you can make it a vegan-friendly cookie recipe by using plant-based ingredients.
Let’s start by making the oatmeal batter first, you need to use gluten-free flour to combine with plant-based milk, vegan butter, and oat. Divide the dough into small balls and flatten them to prepare for baking.
A little secret for baking a soft cookie: the perfect baking time should be around 10 minutes. If you’re going for 12 minutes, the cookie will get a firm texture.
To make the blackberry cream, throw your frozen blackberries in a heated saucepan and stir until they get soft. The cream part is made by beating vegan shortening (plant oil) with vanilla, powdered sugar, and butter.
Before adding the blackberries to the mix, ensure the concoction is well mixed. Adding more powdered sugar helps adjust the texture to your desire.
Finally, assemble the oatmeal sandwich by piping the blackberry cream to one side of the cookie. Use another cookie to top it off, and you’ve got yourself an oatmeal sandwich.
Total time: 34 minutes.
The chocolate cookie is a variation of the popular molten chocolate lava cake. If you don’t know what a lava cake is, it’s a dessert with melted chocolate filling on the inside. Once cut, the chocolate will ooze out, making for a delectable and fancy treat.
The concept of oozy filling also works well on cookies. To make the dough, you first need to combine the basic ingredients like cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, and baking soda. Ideally, you want the batter to be soft.
People often use their fingers to create a pocket on the dough to fill in the chocolate fudge (thick chocolate sauce). Remember the fudge should be in a solid state, so it’s easier to work with. Bake your chocolate lava treat until the outer layer begins to crinkle and crack.
To get the best lava effect on the cookie, I recommend serving it warm with a layer of dusted powdered sugar on top.
Total time: 30 minutes.
Dulce de Leche is a popular choice of Latin Americans as a sweetener, especially in many iconic Mexican dessert dishes. In English, people refer to it as milk jam or caramelized milk, characterized by a brown color.
Although there are ways of making Dulce de Leche at home, since it takes a lot of effort and time, it’s best to just grab one from the store. To make the batter, you can reuse the recipes above but with the addition of chocolate chips.
Once you divide the batter into small balls, use your finger to press down in the middle to form an indentation for the Dulce de Leche to go in. At room temperature, the Dulce de Leche is rather sticky, so make sure you don’t make a mess around your kitchen.
Seal your cookie tightly because you don’t want the Dulce de Leche to escape during the baking process. The result is a soft chocolate cookie with a heavy caramel-flavored filling.
Total time: 30 minutes.
Are you tired of regular size cookies? Then let’s scale up a recipe to make the Big Blue Monster stuffed cookies. These oversized treats surely leave a good impression on anyone when you serve them.
To get that signature blue color, you need to mix the violet color with blue dye since solely using blue results in your cookie being too greenish. You should whisk the egg with butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until they are well combined.
Then, add your dye color with all-purpose flour, vanilla, and baking soda and mix until the ingredients come together. Since the cookies are rather large, I suggest dividing the dough into decent size balls and placing them on the baking tray with some space between.
For garnish on top, place a couple of chunks of broken Oreo for a random decoration pattern. A perfect blue monster cookie needs to have a doughy and slightly underbaked inner. Commonly, you only have to bake for around 12 – 14 minutes before cooling the cookies for serving.
Total time: 2 hours 12 minutes (excluding 2 hours of chilling dough in the refrigerator).
Ganache has something so special that I can’t forget to include it as a filling for a cookie recipe. The thick consistency of Ganache is similar to icing or sauce, which is a huge hit for anyone tasting it for the first time.
Although Ganache has a reputation as a fancy treat, it’s surprisingly simple to make with only dark chocolate and heavy cream. However, the hardest part is in the whisking phase because it takes some time to incorporate the two ingredients into a peanut butter-like consistency.
For the cookies, use your basic dough recipe with a sprinkle of chocolate chips. After resting the dough for around 2 hours in the refrigerator, divide it into small balls and flatten them out. Scoop a dollop of your Ganache to go between two pieces of flattened cookies.
As a piece of helpful advice: Once the cookies puff up and lose the shininess on the surface, they’re ready to serve. These treats can last up to a week in an airtight container for later consumption.
