i'm doing one of these for hubby's birthday or something soon--it's from her new pretty book "cakes"


i'm sure there's a bride somewhere that will be requesting this before long--peeps--it's gotta 4 hour window of safety to be out of the fridge--so it's possible but handle with care--


♥ best wishes for the best spring sunday

Looks yummy!


I have a similar recipe from Martha, it was posted in a large magazine.   It uses 5 - 6" round cookies instead if little individual cookies. 


It's very similar.  This one looks delish.  It's a keeper.

so i have gathered all the ingredients to make this for hubby's b-day but he grazes through the house at night for sweets and he got into the dang chocolate chips--omg! but i already was injecting some toffee chips in there so it will balance out--


my point here is i didn't want the toffee chips + milk chocolate you can buy at the store get so i de-chocolated six heath bars and harvested the toffee out which was so easy and nearly brilliant heheheh


so if it turns out it will post a pic and i also got some maker's mark and some jack daniels--trying to decide which to wrong choice huh

Can't wait to see the pic.   


Tell the DH if doesn't stop eating the ingredients there will be no birthday cake, LOL!  Just a bag of choc chip and naked heath bars and a swig of whiskey to wash them down.


I think Jack Daniels is very strong in flavor, taste and smell.  So unless you like that I would use a milder one.


Good luck and have fun.

Perhaps you need a better ingredient hiding spot Kate!  I try hiding chocolate chips from myself but that doesn't work either !

AMy DH will eat the chocolate chips if I leave them out too. But he won't eat them if I put the bag in the freezer, haha.

It's a Cookie CAKE, what an interesting idea.  It would probably work with regular Cream Cheese also.

Or cream cheese SMBC...........Oh yummy.  Thanks for Sharing K8Memphis.

i wound up tripling the booze, i used the makers mark and you really can't taste or notice it--the cookies were real crunchy especially with all that toffee overload and this morning wow it's cuts like buttah -- the cream tamed the raging sweetness of the cookie-- it's kinda like banana pudding without fruit


and what i learned-- i always trouble shoot what i make-- 


baking off exactly two inch coookies was a challenge with the toffee chips in there--if i had chilled the dough or baked them in a muffin pan if would have been spot on  and that's what i really liked about the cake was the dimensions--but i tested it and it was close enough for a family cake--and if i had piped the topping onto the outer rim of cookies it would have been more like martha's picture--and i still have the cup of cream left in the fridge to make the topping--i did not need it -- i had plenty with the batch of 3c cream and marscapone that you whip for the assembling--


my husband loves it --
