Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake |

My daughter requested a chocolate chip cookie cake for her birthday this past year.  I was a little disappointed when she asked because I LOVE a good bakery cake piled high with butter cream frosting!  However, I am all about spoiling these angels of mine so she got exactly what she wanted!

After her birthday, we all started to crave those darn cookie cakes.  We made quite a few trips to the local cookie company which were not cheap.  I decided that I had to figure out the perfect recipe to make these at home.  I scoured the internet and settled on this one.  I made just a couple very small alterations and it turned out PERFECT!!  We were all so excited!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ dark or light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°.
  2. Spray a 12" disposable aluminum pizza pan and set aside.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed in a large bowl. Mix until light and fluffy.
  4. In another large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt.
  5. While mixing on low speed, add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Keep mixing until the dough comes together well.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Now press the dough into the pizza pan. Bake for 16-20 minutes or until the edges start to brown.
  8. Let the cookie cool completely.
  9. Frost with butter cream, if desired.
  10. Enjoy!
**This makes a thin cookie cake. If you would like to make a thicker cake, double the recipe and use a deeper pizza pan.

** If you use dark brown sugar, your cookie cake will have a deeper flavor. We use light brown and love it. It's personal preference!

*Excuse the photos. They were taken with my phone camera because the kids were already digging into it before I could set it up for better photos!
