Oatmeal cookie pocket pies

(Oatmeal cookie pocket pie)

We are kicking off the new year with a little road trip this morning. It’s only a couple of hours drive but I’m incredibly excited about leaving the city behind to spend a few days in a rented cabin. The first thing I plan to do when we get there is inhale deeply and hopefully not smell or hear civilization.

For the car ride, we have chocolate dipped lebkuchen and a wedge of fruitcake, which I’ve resisted brushing liberally with extra sherry for the sake of the driver. (Certain concessions need to be made, seeing as he is the sole car owner and iPod wrangler in this relationship.)

These pocket pies would have also made for the perfect car snack, if only there were any left. To make them, cut squares or circles of your favourite flaky pastry, stuff with cookie dough and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on the outside. Serve warm, dusted with cinnamon sugar and you may never go back to making fruit-filled versions ever again.

    This is a great idea…actually come to think of it, wrapping the cookie dough in the pastry, other than being delicious, would be one way to slow down cookie crumbs in the car on a trip!

    Oatmeal cookies definitely get the short stick when it comes to cookie dough- Way to elevate them to a more decadent level! I would have never thought of this.

    I’m a sucker for a dough wrapped food: pot pies, calzones, pastries, etc. So, when I saw the title for this one, I got REALLY excited. You did not disappoint! 🙂
