sugar cookie between cake layers - Page 9

post #121 of 206
So kind of feel like I am jumping in to the middle of this post, but was wondering, I always put almond flavoring into my sugar cookies (LOVE IT!) but do you think I should omit it if I put the cookie in between layers of a yellow cake mix or should I add almond flavoring to the cake mix but then buttercream wouldn't taste right would it?

Personally I alwayse use almond in my buttercream. I'd say leave it in the cookie but don't add it to the cake, that will give the cookie a more distinctive flavor. You will know there is something different in there!

I am going to try this for a halloween cake I am baking. I want to do a chocolate cake with a peanut butter cookie. The people that I'm making the cake for aren't big fans of buttercream so I was going to use Bettercreme (or Pastry Pride...whichever I can find). What flavor would you recommend making the bettercreme? I really like caramel flavored, but I'm not sure how that would go with the peanut butter cookie.

What do you think? I'm open to all suggestions.

I'm just going to whip a can of chocolate frosting (because it is more chocolatey than homemade) into peanut butter and see how that turns out.

Otherwise, perhaps add chocolate syrup to Bettercreme - even add peanut butter.

Here is a recipe I love for a peanut butter filling:
1 jar creamy peanut butter (2 c)
2 pkgs cream cheese
2 c powdered sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 c Bettercreme

How thick of a cookie do you use?
post #127 of 206
Forgive me if this has been asked before in here, but does anyone have a guesstimate for how long a cookie will take in an 8in or 10in pan? I bought a betty crocker chocoalte chip pouch to use, thanks!

okay, I may be blind but I went to the link pervided for the cookie inbetween the cakes and I do not see a recipe. Can someone PM me or something??
Thanks.

It's not a recipe really, you bake a cake, and in between layers you add a cookie (baked in your cake pan so it's the same size), you put buttercream on top and bottom of it, there's a great pic of Julie's cake on page 1.

trishalynn - there's no cookie recipe given because the OP said she just uses the Betty Crocker powdered sugar cookie mix that you mix with butter and an egg (so says the package). She uses a full pkg for approx a 12"-14" round and a half pkg for 8"-9" round - something like that. I've never used the mix before and had asked earlier if anyone used the pre-made Pillsbury dough to do the same, but no one said they had. Hope that helps.

Kristin, today/tommorrow, I'm making my daughters birthday cake, devils food cake with a chocolate chip cooke in the middle, she's not a peanut butter fan, otherwise I'd have made peanut butter.

I took a chocolate cake with a peanut butter cookie in the middle into work today for one of the platoons and they loved it! I didn't actually try it because I also took in cupcakes filled with strawberry mousse and I had one of those icon_rolleyes.gif Can't eat it all! Thanks for the great idea!
