Your Cheatin' Cookie-Covered Cookies

Impress your loved ones with this incredibly easy to make cookie for Valentine's. Also, it would be great fun to bake these with the kids!

                                It's What's Inside That Counts!

This rich cookie has a delightful surprise of another cookie tucked inside!

(As adapted from a recipe by Paula Dean as seen on the Food Network)

Approx. 10+ Extra Large Cookies


  • One 16.5 oz. roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • Dark chocolate-coated sponge cookie with raspberry fruit filling (or similar small pre-packaged cookie)*
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • Approx. 1/4 c. sliced almonds (or chopped nuts)


  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ.
  2. Slice cookie dough into approx. 1/4" slices.
  3. For the first layer, on a cookie pan lined with parchment paper, place slices of cookie dough approx. 4" apart.  (The cookies will spread quite a bit).
  4. For the second layer, place the chocolate-coated raspberry cookie on top of the first layer of sliced cookie dough; and for the third layer, cover the raspberry cookie with another slice of cookie dough.
  5. Brush the top layer of dough with the slightly beaten egg.
  6. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with the sliced almonds (or chopped nuts).
  7. Bake approximately 16+ minutes or until the edges are golden brown.  Watch closely! Enjoy sharing the love and have a Happy Valentine's!
*I found this cookie at my "gourmet grocery", Aldi.
