Author Notes

Received a call from my mother one day wondering why there isn't a doughnut cookie combo. My first thought was no, no, no there doesn't need to be a doughnut cookie combo. But then my mind would not stop thinking about how this could actually work. Then this turned into me having to try two different doughnut cookie treats in one day. Here are the results of the raised doughnut with chocolate chip cookie in the middle. The raised doughnut recipe I found from
I accidentally added a little extra yeast and sugar to my recipe and it worked out well. I also changed the steps in how they combined the ingredients and changed the icing. The chocolate chip cookie is from the Nestle Toll House cookie recipe with a little less sugar and an egg substitutes as the cookie will be still be doughy after frying. The below cookie dough recipe is a half batch since you will not need the full batch to make the doughkies. Fill free to make a whole batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe so you will have some dough left over to make cookies later in the week. —Amitha's Expression of Creativity
