This delightful cake is a combination of crumbly butter cookie layered with and coated in a chocolate with a texture that feels almost like carmel in your mouth.  The butter cookie is a nice not-too-sweet flavor and it is easy to vary the sweetness of the whole cake by selecting the right kind of chocolate for your desired taste.

It is a lovely snack to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea while reading a good book.

We will begin by making a batch of butter cookies dough, rolling and cutting the cookies to fit in a loaf pan, and then we create the chocolate filling/coating.

You will need:
Loaf Pan
Plastic Wrap
Mixer or Bowl and a strong spoon
Rolling Pin
Cookie Sheet
Parchment Paper
Butter Knife
Sharp Knife

Ingredients will be discussed in the appropriate steps but are also pictured here.

Step 1: Mix the Butter Cookie Dough

I used the recipe from my 1950's Betty Crocker Cook Book:
1 cup butter (I used real butter not margarin)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
3 tsp vanilla flavoring
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Mix the butter, sugar, and egg until mixed thoroughly.  Add the vanilla.  Stir in the flour and baking powder.  Chill the dough before rolling.
Bake temp: 425 degrees for 5-7 mins or until delicately brown.
<p>Love this idea! It reminds me of a cake my mother would make with whipped cream and chocolate graham crackers. I hated the whipped cream, yours sounds so much more pleasant!</p>
<p>i love this picture</p>
i think this is actually a german recipe from the 80's called 'kalter hund'. but who cares, it tastes like heaven haha
What type of pan is that? It looks like a loaf pan only more narrow.
I used a loaf pan from Ikea (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90133053/). The sides are taller on this pan and it is slightly narrower than the older loaf pan I own. The cookie template I made was 2.625&quot;x10&quot; (7cmx25cm).
In New York this goes by 7 layer cake, and it is impossible to find in the Bay Area. At one point, I considered paying $65 to have this cake shipped cross country. This looks really good, but I think I am possibly too busy at the moment to actually commit to making it myself. Maybe in a few months I'll try making this.
Ah. I just realized that you are using cookie sheets. I think this is slightly different. Alas. Looks good nonetheless.
I used butter cookies not cake for this. However, this chocolate coating instead of frosting with cake might be one of the best foods ever...
