I made this recently for my family as we were tending to a loved one with cancer. It was so decadent and rich. I never would have thought to use eggless cookie dough as separation in the place of icing. Oooohhhh it was incredible! Great comfort food.I made with M&M's I had on hand. Yum!
Makes an impressive looking cookie cake! Nice and thick and a perfect soft, but not too soft consistency out of the oven. I hope my customer loves it.
What would you recommend for frosting?
I used this recipe today to make large (1/2 cup scoop) cookies for my family. It was a huge hit, the cookies are soft and cake like and very delicious. I used white chocolate pudding mix instead of vanilla, because that is what I had here. I did make the soda substitution for the BP. It made 14 VERY large cookies.
i live in northern ireland and would like to know what instant french vanilla pudding mix is thanks
jakey- It's just a box of instant pudding you mix with cold milk. You buy it in the grocery store along with the other flavors of instant pudding in a box. Not sure if they sell it in northern ireland, but it's pretty popular here in the US and easy to make! Hope that helps.
I used to work in a bakery that had amazing cookie cakes. While I remember the recipe, I signed a confidentiality statement saying I would not use their recipes. So when my nephew requested a cookie cake, I had to find a new recipe. This one is really good-maybe even better than the bakery's! And I love the cake-like texture!
Hi, quick question on this one - I am thinking about using it to do a 'shaped' cake. i.e. carved. Is it 'strong' enough for this, or is it really light and not so strong please?
This is may be a silly question but I was wondering do you mix the pudding mix with the milk before you put it in or do you put it in there dry?
@karadaigle...The pudding is used in its dry form. Whenever it is specified as "instant pudding MIX" it should be used dry. Hope that helps...
Ok so silly question....this is a CAKE mix with chocolate chips mixed in? Is it cake like or cookie like? Also, how do you use an eggless cookie dough as a filling.....raw??? Has anyone ever baked say a chocolate cake and then used a "chewy" cookie for the filling.....but baked?
Does this cake need an icing? If so, any suggestions?
I've been been making a chocolate chip cookie cake for years...altho my recipe is slightly different. I use the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the Nestle bag. I completely omit the white sugar and just use the instant french vanilla pudding and pie filling in its place. (I just use the small 3.4 oz box if I'm making a single batch). I also cook at high altitude (I live in CO) so I add the 2 tsp of water to my dough. I always double the vanilla extract and sprinkle in cinnamon. When I stack my layers to make the cake, I use cream cheese frosting in the middle. Over the top I drizzle melted chocolate - first i just melt choco chips and use my #3 tip and let it drip down sides. Then I switch to #2 tip and drizzle melted white chocolate over that. Then i switch back to the milk chocolate and #2 tip and drizzle just a little more over just the top to cut down on the stark white. Dip some strawberries in chocolate and place on top for a decadent look. I have done many of these for weddings, bdays, etc. To see pics, pls check out my flickr site at - www.flickr.com/photos/cookiejan
Will this recipe work with regular buttercream and tiered/stacked with decorations and fondant? Thinking about trying it out....possilby for a wedding? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks! I can't wait to try this out! ;)
areinsbach...my friend has done this cake with fondant...everyone picked the fondant off their piece before eating it tho. but she was able to decorate, etc. Recently she made a tiered cake for her daughters bday. 2 stacked layers on the bottom and 2 smaller stacked layers on top (use support dowels). I have never tried using butter cream - not sure how it would taste with the choco chips? My friend and I have done 3 weddings using this cake...but no fondant. If you would like to see pics of those wedding cakes, see my link in the post above yours to my flickr site where I post my photos. Good luck if you decided to do a stacked wedding cake! I think it would make a beautiful wedding cake covered in fondant and decorated. :)
I am making this for a work party that's tomorrow. Can I make this tonight or should I wake up early tomorrow? Also how do I store it if I make it tonight?? Thanks!!
