Recipe Redux: Rainbow Cookies Stuffed With Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Every now and again, it's good to look back at where we've come from, so that we can proceed mindfully and deliciously into the future. #sodeep

What I mean to say is, I recently revisited an old recipe from my first book and am happy to report that it is still delicious, still magical: rainbow cookies stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough.

I mean, what could be better than taking a bite of a magical rainbow cookie and then realizing it's stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough? It's like...your brain will be a confetti cannon, that degree of mind-blowing. 

Realizing that my original recipe, which employed a full batch of Kaleidoscope-cooky (yes, cooky) batter was a bit LARGE, this time I tried a half-batch, and it worked splendidly. So when just a half million cookies as opposed to a full million are in order, give this recipe a try!

Rainbow Cookies Stuffed With Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. 

Here's how you do it. Adapted from CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life

You'll need:

  • 1 batch rainbow cookie dough 
  • 1/2 batch or a little less of chocolate chip cookie dough (bake the rest normally, or use it to stuff cupcakes, you follow your bliss)
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. So, you've got your rainbow cookie dough all ready to go. Now, slice it into fairly thin coins--like, 1/8 inch thick. Lay them on your prepared baking sheet with about 1 inch in between rounds (they won't spread too much).
  3. On the center of each round, place a small dollop of chocolate chip cookie dough.Place a second coin of rainbow cookie dough on top. If it cracks between color segments, use your fingers to smooth it back into place. Gently press the sides down so your chocolate chip cookie dough doesn't ooze out.
  4. Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until rainbow cookies have a dull finish on top. 
  5. Let cool for 5 minutes on the sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
