I am obsessed with anything that is cake flavoured- birthday cake, cake batter- anything! I especially love the ones with the sprinkles!!! So obviously when I saw Frosting Filled Birthday Cake Cookies from Chips Ahoy on the shelf at the grocery store, I snatched them up before anyone else could steal them away from me.
I don’t think I’ve been more excited to try something than I was to try these cookies- I’ve never seen frosting filled in a cookie before- I took one bite, and was devastated! They were not very good. At all. They didn’t taste like cake batter, and they sure didn’t taste like frosting! Being the devoted sweets fan that I am, I new I couldn’t give up at that point, and I had to try to make my own version.
To make the frosting filling, I ended up using shortening, which I don’t usually like to use. I tried the recipe with butter instead, but the butter melted in the heat of the oven, and the frosting spread out all over the cookies. I also failed when it came to the cookie batter. I went with my go-to chocolate chip cookie batter, and found that it didn’t have enough flour, so the cookies spread out wide. I needed them to keep their bowl shape around the frosting filling. So, I fixed my errors, replaced the butter with the shortening, and added more flour. One more practice batch, and I had it fixed!
I hope you love these as much as I did!
