My pillow may very well be my favorite place in the world – soft and inviting, it’s a place to rest my head and drift away from the day.
Like my pillow, these cranberry pillow cookies are soft and inviting and are stuffed with something fluffy (maple cream cheese) – but please don’t sleep on them.
These cranberry pillow cookies were universally loved by everyone I served them to, even those who typically prefer crunchy cookies. I think it’s the surprise inside that won them over, but it could also be the winning combination of seasonal flavors.
How Do You Get the Filling Into Pillow Cookies?
Stuffing pillow cookies couldn’t be any easier. Take one circle of cookie dough, put filling on top of it, top with another circle of cookie dough, and use your fingers to seal the edges of the two cookies together. If you don’t like the idea of maple cream cheese, you can stuff pillow cookies with just about anything: more cranberry sauce or jam, nuts, dried fruit, or even pieces of cake or brownies.
