Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Coffee Cake

While this blog contains a number of recipes that I have taken from cookbooks, magazines or websites and altered or improved upon, this one is, by far, my favorite. One afternoon, I got the idea that coffee cake made with cookie dough would taste amazing. Of course, I assumed someone out there, at some point, had the same idea, so I took to scouring the Interweb for a recipe … and found nothing. So, instead, I found a basic coffee cake recipe and turned it into this. And, yes, I was correct - it tastes amazing.

2 - 16-oz. tubes refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 stick (8 Tbsp.) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips

1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°. Press about 20 ounces of chocolate chip cookie dough into an ungreased 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Set aside and let cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, cream the butter. Add sugar and eggs and mix well. Blend in sour cream, vanilla, flour, baking powder and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour the batter over the cooled cookie dough crust. In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients. Sprinkle over top of coffee cake dough. Break off small pieces of remaining cookie dough and sprinkle over top of the cake (you will have leftover dough). Bake for 30 minutes or until cake passes the toothpick test.
