Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites (cookie dough center)

Got Cookies? These are little Cookie Dough Bites. My mom used to make cake and cookies all of the time. She would just wake up and decided that day was going to be a cookie or a cake day. On the cookie days she used to take little bits of cookie dough and pop it in her mouth. So I thought what a better combo then to add the cookie dough to the cake. These are inspired by my mom the sweet tooth queen.

How it was made:
I made a regular yellow cake with chocolate chips added, baked as usual. Then I made chocolate chip cookie dough and baked a few cookies. I cut out the middle of the bites and added cookie dough then put the top back on. I added fluffy white frosting and pieces of chocolate chip cookie to the top.

I was worried how the raw cookie dough would taste gluten free. As all of us gluten free victims know allot of the batter taste like bean flour. But these were so good. The taste wasn't anything close to bean flour. When biting into it you taste the vanilla and the lightness of the cake, you get the slightly heavier, sugary, chocolate chip cookie dough in the center, You taste the light fluffy frosting but it doesn't over take the taste of the dough. Then you taste the fresh baked, delicious chocolate chip cookie sitting on top that's waiting for you!

I give this a 9 out of 10. It wasn't over powering you with sugar. All of the textures where great together. The fact that they were bite sized was perfect for the sugar content. made them just right.

Baby cake testers say: They loved it. Want me to make them again.
