Cookie Cake

wrecklesswords wrecklesswords
I've been looking around for some cookie cake recipes. My girlfriend wants a giant cookie cake for her birthday and I would like to make it for her.

I have tried to make a cookie cake in the past by just spreading the dough out on a pizza pan and baking, but it came out burned and crunchy. I want to get it as close to a cookie cake from The Great American Cookie as possible. If you've had their cookie cakes, you know what I mean; soft, thick, never hard or crunchy. Perfect, really.

So, does anyone have any good advice, recipes, or anything else to add?

I think you could use cookie dough but try using some foil and make sure you don't spread your cookie dough to thin cause it will burn quicker. If you really want a big cookie you might need more cookie dough.

I have used a pizza tray to make a cookie cake. The tray with holes in the bottom? That works out really well. The dough should be like than half and inch and presto! It will be perfect : )

Hmmm... I've always had excellent luck just spreading it in a pan. It's never burnt and always perfectly gooey. It must be our different recipes. The one I usually use it what I can sans chocolate chip cookies. It's basically brown sugar cookies.

I use glass baking pans, the round layer cake size and shape, and make sure the dough is about 1/2-3/4" thick. I love making two huge cookies and layering them with flavored cream cheese frosting.

That sounds delicious!!

Also, I've never used any recipe. I've honestly just used pre-made cookie dough when trying to make a cookie cake.

However, when I did make cookies from scratch, I used the recipe on the back of I want to say it's Tollhouse chocolate chips.

maybe instead of making a chocolate chip cookie cake you could make a giant sugar cookie with a icing on the top with fruit.
I just make a batch of sugar cookies and spread it out on a 13*9 baking dish or something similar that is rectangular. Bake it, but I usually bake it so it's still nice and gooey lol. Then you beat together confectionery sugar and cream cheese...sounds weird but is sooo good. That will be your icing. Then put that on the top and add fruit. I've addded peaches, kiwi, strawberries and blueberries.
It turns out so good!

i'd use a small cake pan and pill up to the sides to make it like 1/2 deep. then watch it like a halk when its cooking.

I've done it. Use a standard Tollhouse cookie recipe (use something other than Nestle though. I don't like the company or their practices.) I like Ghiardelli chocolate chips. I gave myself a migraine yesterday, eating them right out of the bag. MMMM

I put a well greased pizza pan with edges ON an Air Bake cookie sheet. If you don't have an Air Bake sheet (this is a cookie sheet with two sheets of steel, with about 1/4 inch of air between them to prevent burning.) then you'll have to use two cookie sheet on top of each other, one slightly larger (the larger one on the top, so you have a cushion of air, then put the pizza pan with the dough on it on top of that. Then spread the dough a little thicker in the middle than on the edges. You'll have to guess at the time to cook it. But, when you touch the cookie near the middle and it doesn't "deflate" and it feels firm but not too brown, it is done. Usually with something like this, you take it out a little before you think it's done.

It may take a few tries. You must use a moist cookie dough, like Tollhouse cookies. Cake batter is actually too moist and will burn before you cook it all the way.
