cookie. cake.

This one has been a long time coming. Who doesn't love warm, soft chocolate chip cookies? Now make it a GIGANTIC chocolate chip cookie and you have a crowd pleaser on your hands.

My friend Katie has made this a few times (several of them after I begged her) and I became obsessed. Making chocolate chip cookies has always been a go-to that makes everyone happy. During our Christmas baking frenzy (where we are overly ambitious with what we can bake in a day), my mom and I always throw a few batches of good old chocolate chip cookies in the oven.

But this, this cookie cake--it's a new challenge and something different. And what is more craveable than a GIANT chocolate chip cookie?

Recipe revised for a less dense and more gooey cake!

cookie cake
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 sticks of butter
2 1/2 tbsp of vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 cups of chocolate chips
  • pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  • combine sugars, add butter and cream together
  • add eggs and vanilla- mix well
  • in a separate bowl combine dry ingredients
  • slowly, add combined dry ingredients
  • add chocolate chips
  • split into two 9 inch cake pans
  • bake for 10-15 minutes
tip: watch this cake like a hawk and check the center with a toothpick. you want the center to be slightly undercooked (pieces of the cookie batter showing up on your toothpick) and the edges a light brown. while it cools it will cook a bit more and you want it gooey on the inside!

You can share, or just keep it all to yourself, but make sure you have plenty of milk on hand!
