Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

For Cecily's birthday cake tonight, I decided to do something a little different. She will have a regular cake for her birthday on Sunday during her bowling party, and since she is a huge cookie fan, I made her a giant cookie cake. It was so good.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
Adapted from
Emeril Lagasse


2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 14-inch, light colored, round pizza pan with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, beating well after the addition of each.

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix with a whisk. Add to the butter mixture, mixing to incorporate, and add the vanilla extract. Fold in the dark and white chips and the nuts. Spread across the bottom of the prepared pan and bake until the edges are golden and the cookie is set but the center is still slightly soft, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Decorate with icing and cut into wedges to serve.

I can't take credit for the decoration. I started it and quickly realized that isn't my strong suit. Zach fixed it and made it adorable!!

Cake with her candles. 4 years old and one for good luck
