Chocolate Chip Cookie Grilled Cheese

Yesterday was our last day of classes! To celebrate Dave and I went out to dinner with some of our friends from grad school to a new restaurant called Nuevo.

Dave and I split this awesome margarita flight which let you customize flavors/rims. From left to right: Cranberry Orange Peel margarita with a sugar/salt rim, a Spicy Mango margarita with a chili rim and a Pomegranate margarita with a sugar rim. Overall everything was delicious and we had a really great time.

As we're nearing the close of Grilled Cheese Month 2014 Dave and I are starting to experiment a little in the kitchen. Can you cook chocolate chip cookies in a skillet? Should cheese be melted between two cookies? Sometimes when you're making decisions about grilled cheese you just need to go for it. At this point, I'm not sure that cheese melted between two carb-based foods is ever truly a bad thing.

This recipe doesn't need to be difficult to make, we cheated and used prepackaged cookie dough.

A Vegetarian & Cooking! original.

-Chocolate chip cookies
-2 slices of cheddar cheese

Bake your cookies.

Melt butter in a skillet.
Lay down a cookie, cover in one slice of cheddar.
Top with another cookie.
Cover the skillet with a lid or another skillet to help the cheese melt.
Flip the cookie sandwich over in a few minutes.

The cookie will become golden brown on the outside.
This wasn't bad overall -- there was nothing wrong with the flavors and the cookie got nice and crispy on the outside. The cheddar cheese didn't really add anything to the sandwich. this would have been better with a cheese which has more flavor -- maybe brie or a sharper cheddar.
