Tim Tam Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

We talked about Tim Tams last week when I made Tim Tam chunk cookies.

They were delicious, and I wanted to do more with the Tim Tams, get bigger chunks of them in my cookies, and get some chocolate in there too.

So I made these.

Think: gooey cookie and melted chocolate chip layer, chocolate layer, biscuit layer, chocolate creme layer, another biscuit layer, more chocolate, then another layer of chewy chocolate chip cookie.

How could you possibly resist?

I made a huge batch of these, the majority of which went to my boyfriend. It was our anniversary, so we went out for drinks, then then to dinner at Longrain (DELICIOUS!!!), and then I gave him cookies.

Cookie presents have kind of become a tradition with us.

Isn’t that cute?

It’s only because I’m obsessed with cookies, really.

As if to prove that point, I ate devoured the rest of these cookies for breakfast.

Because I absolutely loooooved these chewy/crunchy/chocolate-y cookies, and just couldn’t resist.

Cookie dough recipe adapted from Picky Palate.

220g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup)
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 packets Tim Tams (16 biscuits) cut in half

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 3 trays with baking paper.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until combined and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla.

Turn the mixer onto a low speed and slowly add the flour, salt and soda, mixing until just incorporated. Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.

Using a medium cookie scoop or heaped tablespoon, scoop balls of the dough. Place a ball of dough in the palm of your hand and flatten it well. Place half a Tim Tam in the center and fold the edges of the dough over, using your fingers to pinch them together and shape the dough around the Tim Tam.

Place on baking trays and bake for about 1o minutes, until lightly golden. Makes 32 cookies.

  4. My husband loves Tim Tams but they are not available here, so every time a friend or a member of the family goes to Australia, All my brother comes back, we ask for them to bring a packet or two back for him. I would never have thought of baking them into a cookie before, but might just try this for him next time. In the UK, Penguin biscuits are similar, but not as good according to my husband. Thank you for the recipe.

    • Hey, you’re welcome! Well you could always try them out with penguins, considering they’re baked into a cookie, maybe your husband won’t even be able to tell! 😉
