The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake Recipe

You ask and you shall receive! A couple weeks ago, I received an email from a reader after sending one of my twice weekly newsletters. I love connecting with you all and am always humbled when you take the time to write a comment or email. She asked if I had a cookie cake recipe. Of course I sent her my ever popular Sugar Cookie Cake recipe, but her grandson’s favorite treat is a Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake. I can’t blame him. Nine times out of ten I requested a chocolate chip cookie cake for my birthday growing up. So, I made one for her, that’s really for me!

Mom always made her chocolate chip cookie cake in a pizza pan, which is pretty fantastic, but I can’t help but love a deep dish and needed an excuse to use this pretty heart shaped tart pan {which sadly is no longer available but you can find a similar adorable pie dish here}. So, I made my bakery style chocolate chip cookie recipe which has a yummy little twist and baked myself a cake for my upcoming birthday. Basically, I’m celebrating all month.

The secret to a really great chocolate chip cookie cake {other than my cookie recipe} is to not over bake. I won’t judge if you decide to serve it warm with a scoop of homemade ice cream, either.
