I saw a BuzzFeed listicle about different grilled cheese sandwich recipes and one of the entries was this link: www.cupcakeproject.com/2012/08/chocolate-chip-cookie-grilled-cheese.html
That looked so cool, but I wanted to put my own twist on it, so I used red velvet cookies in place of chocolate chip cookies because red velvet cookies are colorful and stand out when looking at them from afar. I wasn't in the mood to make red velvet cookies from scratch so I bought some Toll House Cookie copycat that was red velvet cookies. You know, the type where you break and bake.
Over the summer, there was a story on the news about a new state fair food: cookie fries. That looked so cool too, so all I did was cut some of the cookie dough pieces in half.
I realized I forgot to serve these fries with "ketchup"(strawberry jelly), but you can just dip the "fries" into the "ketchup".
The key to getting the cheese melted is to place the slice of cheese immediately after you take the baked cookies out of the oven. But if you just have some room temperature red velvet cookies, you can follow the link in the first paragraph of this blog post.
You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
Nonstick cooking spray
A large baking sheet or cookie tray
A pizza cutter
For the sandwich and "fries":
Enough red velvet cookie dough to make 12 cookies
Slices of American cheese
Strawberry jelly to serve with the "fries"(optional)
1. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Place 9 cookie dough pieces onto the baking sheet.
3. Cut each of the 3 remaining pieces not on the tray in half with a pizza cutter before baking. Place those "fries" onto the baking sheet.
4. Bake the cookie dough pieces and "fries" in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 14-17 minutes.
5. Right after taking the cookies out of the oven, cut 3 of the 9 uncut cookies in half to make "fries".
6. Place 2 cookies onto a plate. Top one of the cookies with a slice of American cheese. Place the other cookie on the plate on top of the cheese.
7. Serve the "fries" with strawberry jelly(optional). Bon appetit!
