This Chocolate chip cookie ‘lasagna’ makes storebought cookies taste homemade! I remember the first time I ever had this dessert recipe.  My sisters and I were shocked at how good it was because we knew who had brought it to the covered dish dinner- a self proclaimed NON cooker—and the dessert did NOT taste storebought!! If a non cooker can do it then it belongs in the Cooking with Kids-How to series beginner recipes (level 1a)!
