i am thinking about making a cookie the same way you make a puzzle cake, and wondered if anyone has tried this before. For the cake you layer chocolate and vanilla cakes, cut the middle out, flip the whole cake over and put the part you cut out of the bottom into the top. i'm just not sure how i would cut the cookies out so that you can see all the layers, any suggetions?

so you mean, you want to "inlay" a different color of cookie dough?

Not sure if this is what you're talking about, but you'd make 2 different colored cookie doughs. Cut out a shape in one dough. Use a mini cutter to cut out the middle of that cookie. Take the mini cutter and cut that shape out of the other color and then lay it in the middle of the first dough. You can do this with fondant too. HTH

Sorry, i'll try that again. Let's say you want to cut out hearts in regular cookie dough and chocolate cookie dough.

1- Roll out your light cookie dough.
2- Cut out heart shaped cookies and lay on cookie sheets
3- Take a smaller cookie cutter (smaller heart, or circle or whatever) and cut out the centers of each heart. Remove those middles
4- Roll out chocolate cookie dough.
5- Cut cookie shapes using the small cookie cutter that you cut the centers out of the larger hearts.
6- Take those cut-outs and put them into the now empty centers of the light hearts.
7- You now have light cookie dough hearts with chocolate cutout centers.

I don't see how a cookie could be thick enough to make the layers do anything but be a mess.
For those who have never seen one: This is one of the cake slices.

I've never seen one of these cakes. Too bad someone can't make a tutorial!

Wow, that puzzle cake looks really neat. I checked out the instructions, and I'm not sure I get it, but I'm going to try and see what happens. Thanks 7YYRT
