I'm not actually looking for an answer to help me currently (at least I don't think). Ive managed to move past this step with an acceptable result, but as a beginner, I suspect that there are much better and cleaner techniques of achieving the end result.

Here is my model:

enter image description here

My first try, I wireframed my cookie, duplicated the top half, removed the faces surrounding the center crater, and then added a face on top. This produced a model that had weird/unpleasant geometry on that face that was filled. I scrapped this

What I currently have, is a new object that scaled to roughly fit into that center, and then sculpted the object(filling) to get it to 'fit'/fill into the center. While it looks ok to me, I see that there is a lot of geometry overlapping between both objects in wireframe mode. Is this ok? I couldnt figure out how to 'snap' the faces of my surrounding faces of the 'filling' to the faces inside the cookie.

I'm just wondering what are some better approaches to this kind of situation. Thank you in advance

Rather than trying to fit your center to the cookie itself, try using the cookie as the starting point of the base of the center.

Duplicate your mesh. enter image description here

Select what will become the bottom of the center.

enter image description here

Delete the inverse. Select the boundary loop and then relax it with Loop Tools > Relax. enter image description here

enter image description here

Then just extrude up those outer edges, to get your basic shape, Shift + N to invert the normals once your done to get it right-side-out.

enter image description here

enter image description here

Then you can remesh what you've got, sculpt it, etc. enter image description here
