Chocolate Chip Creme Pies

I made these the other day to take to our friend's bonfire.  I had seen a couple of ideas on Pinterest and combined a few to come up with these.  Actually, I made one I found but my husband didn't like it and asked me to change it.  He has an exceptional palate, so I did.

Please, try these.  They're simple.  You'll be glad you did.

Chocolate Chip Creme Pies


1 cup of butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
2-1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup toffee bits

Heat the oven to 375*F.

Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.  Set it aside.

In your mixer, combine the butter and sugars.  Mix them until they're fluffy.  Add the eggs, 1 at a time, mixing them well after each one.  Add the vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients, just mixing until they're combined.
Add the chocolate chips and toffee bits and mix them in well.

Scoop them into scant teaspoon sizes onto a cookie sheet covered with a silpat or parchment paper.  Bake them for about 8 minutes or until they're brown on the edges.

Remove them from the oven, let them sit on the cookie sheet for about a minute, then transfer to a cooling rack.

Creme Filling

1 cup of butter, softened
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 jar of marshmallow creme
2 tsp. vanilla

Combine the butter and powdered sugar in your mixer.  Beat them until combined.  Add the marshmallow creme and vanilla.  Taste it, adding more sugar or vanilla if you need to.

Take one of your cookies, spread it with the creme and top it with another cookie.

They store best in the refrigerator, but taste best at room temperature.

Seriously, make these.  Take them somewhere to share.  Prepare to be loved for your yummy treats.
