Chocolate chip chocolate chip cookie dough cookies.

When asked for dessert recommendations, my friend’s 8-year-old son suggested “chocolate chip cookies with chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough in them.” How on earth can I pull off this fantastic treat?

The problem, of course, is that cookie dough bakes and turns into cookie. So adding the cookie dough before baking the cookies would be out of the question, unless there were some sort of magical cookie dough recipe that retains its doughiness in the oven.
Or is freezing little balls of dough a possibility?
Undercooking the cookies to retain a doughy middle, although delicious, so often results in a structurally unsound cookie and a mass of stuck-together cookie glop in the cookie jar. So that’s not really an option either.
The best solution I’ve come up with so far is adding the dough after baking – perhaps plopping little clumps on right as they come out of the oven, or spreading dough on top like frosting, or sandwiching the dough between two cookies.
I’m wondering if anyone more knowledgeable in cookie-chemistry has any better ideas.
Additionally, if anyone has a good recipe for eggless cookie dough that is safe and delicious to eat raw, I’d appreciate that as well!
