Mochi Stuffed Chocolate Cookies Recipe!

A couple of friends on IG put mochi stuffed cookies on my radar, so when I had some extra time I looked up recipes on the internet.  I found a recipe on pepper. that I liked.  See it here

One thing to note before starting is that the cookie dough needs to be chilled for an hour.  

For the cookie dough, mix together: 1/2 cup sugar, 3/4 brown sugar, and 1/2 cup melted butter in a bowl.  You'll need to whisk until the mixture comes together and becomes lighter in color.  Add in one egg to the mix.  Sift the following into the mixture:  1 1/4 cups flour, 1/4 dark cocoa powder, and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.  Mix together well with spatula and chill for an hour.

While your dough is chilling, start on your mochi.  Mix 1/2 cup mochiko with 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave for 30 seconds at a time and stir each time.  To get the mochi texture, it took me about 2 minutes total.  Mix in 1 tablespoon softened butter.  Let cool.

As your hour ends, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  The recipe says to portion the cookie dough and mochi into balls, but it didn't say how many so I took a guess and made a dozen each.  Working with the mochi is sticky so I used plastic wrap to roll the balls.  I also had to take a taste.  The mochi is not as sweet as I am used to, but it balances the sweetness of the chocolate cookie.  

Take a cookie dough ball and flatten.  Place the mochi ball in the center and close the cookie dough over the mochi.  Bake for 12 minutes and let cool before serving.  At 12 minutes, the cookies did not look done, but I trusted the process and took them out of the oven.  As they were cooling, they started to harden.  My daughter and I can never wait for cookies to fully cool so we started in on one, but it was way too soft and gooey.  We totally still ate it and it made us excited for how the cookies would be even better when fully cooled.  And they were!  These cookies had a nice crispy edge with a softer texture over the mochi in the middle.  They are our new favorite cookie!
