- Keep the dough an inch to 2 inches from the edge of the pan. It will spread!
- I used a 15 inch pan with a slight lip and some dough came up over the lip but didn't spread over the side. I just used a knife to cut it off.
I started this process after 7:00 pm and with only one pizza pan, I was rushing to get the first cookie cake out of the pan and onto 2 cooling racks and this was the result, so please allow it to cool in the pan for at least 15 minutes. Thankfully the second one turned out great and my daughter gave it a thumbs up.
Last night I baked my first and second cookie cake and there's really not much to it. Anyone who can make cookies or bake a pizza can do it. If you are looking for a thick cookie cake you will not like this recipe. This cake is exactly like a giant cookie and as thick as one. Hope you enjoy it!
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar (could possibly be cut to 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (throw in an extra handful)
1/2 cup mini m&m's
Cream together butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Add vanilla. Scrape sides of bowl if using a mixer. Add eggs, mixing well after each one. Gradually add baking soda, salt and flour. Finally, add the chocolate chips and m&m's. Spoon the mixture onto a greased 15" pizza pan. Spread mixture evenly on pan leaving 1 - 2 inches clean around edges. It will spread. Bake for 18 - 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cookie should be lightly browned. Allow to cool, then decorate. Cut and serve.
