Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake Recipe

cookiecake

One of our go-to desserts for celebrating special occasions is my Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake. This is a great dessert that you can decorate or leave undecorated. I personally like to use store-bought frosting to decorate it. I typically use one can of white frosting and one of chocolate frosting. Use your imagination to bring this cookie to life!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • Shortening or baking spray
  • Frosting

Instructions

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 14-inch round deep dish pizza pan with shortening or baking spray.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy in a large bowl. Add eggs, one at a time. Gradually add flour, salt, and baking soda and beat until well blended. Then add chocolate chips.

Put batter in greased pan and bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely in pan on a cooling rack. Decorate with frosting.
