Welcome to the boards, Jessica!!
I've not ever heard of this (thanks for the pic). Can you describe it better? Is it eaten as a dessert? Eaten warm?? It looks filled - with what? It it a breakfast bread?
Now you have me interested.
Editing to add: I've looked at the images more closely, Jessica. It seems to me that it's filled puff pastry. The cookie exterior is perhaps the puff pastry dipped in a glaze (after baking, then filled) and rolled in cookie crumbs??? Sound yummy!

They do look good although I don't know the recipe for them.

Alright, I just had to check these out (after I picked up the drool on my keyboard). They seem very much like pâte à choux or cream puff dough (same base dough for profiteroles and eclairs), filled with custard and somehow, have a cookie crumb layer on the outside.
Since the raw batter doesn't seem to have any texture (does not appear to have cookie crumbs in the batter), my guess is that after baking, the puffs are cooled, filled, then glazed and rolled into cookie crumbs while still wet.
Which reminds me, it's time to make a batch of cream puffs!

A little info on the cookie puff which seems to have its origin in Australia:

It needs some chocolate involved before it would interest me :D But going by this paragraph from the link...
For Asian bakery regulars, the crust is similar to the topping found on polo or pineapple buns. For others, think of a crumbly mixture made from butter, sugar, egg yolk, milk, flour and a touch of baking powder, then baked until it forms a golden crunchy crust.
I wasn't familiar with polo or pineapple buns but apparently they're similar to melonpan, which I have heard of. Melonpan is basically rolls (yeast bread dough) that are wrapped in cookie dough and baked (they can have a filling too). So maybe cream puff dough wrapped in a thin shell of cookie dough and baked? Melonpan can be wrapped just on the top so you could fill from the bottom then.
Google will turn up some melonpan recipes.There's also at least one blog with pictures and step by step directions. If I have time later on today I'll look for links and post them. I know I have several saved because I want to try making melonpan but they must be in my recipe folder at work because I can't find them on this computer.
