So let me share the EASIEST and CHEAPEST recipe for a cookie cake. And the best part is it tastes even better than the ones in the mall and a heck of a lot better than store bought ones. I can’t stand those! All you need is 3 things:
1. A roll of TOLLHOUSE cookie dough (large or small)*
2. Icing – I always use chocolate and add white (vanilla) sometimes too
3. A pan of some sort – I’ve used a casserole dish, a round pan, a square pan, and a disposable round/square pan…all work great
*I have tried other brands of cookie dough and will never use anything else but Nestle Tollhouse (and this post is in no way affiliated with them…it just tastes better)
How to Make:
Squish the roll of cookie dough into a greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your cake.
Notes: Of course that is the basic recipe. I like my cakes a little thicker, so I usually buy the bigger roll of cookie dough and use a casserole dish size pan. It’s always easier to save leftover cookie dough than to have a cookie cake too thin. For the following pictures, I used the smaller roll and an 8×8 inch pan.
Bake it at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. I always start with 15 minutes and add to it. I like my cookie cakes gooier than crispier, so I keep a close watch after 15 minutes. This one took about 20 minutes, but would have been just fine with 18 minutes. It may take longer in a bigger pan.
