    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 chocolate chip cookie cake recipe.

    I sent her my ever-popular Sugar Cookie Cake recipe, but she mentioned 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 and am so excited to share it with you today!

    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}. You can use a sheet pan, tart dish, or pie dish to make cookie cakes, whichever you prefer!

    I made my bakery style chocolate chip cookie recipe tweaked for a cookie cake. It has a yummy little twist and baked myself a cake for my upcoming birthday. Basically, I’m celebrating all month.

    Tips to make the best Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake:

    • Have a few extra minutes? Brown the butter to get deeper flavor! You can see how in the video below.
    • Don’t overmix. Blend your butter, sugars, and vanilla first, then add eggs and mix until just incorporated.
    • Don’t overbake. That’s the secret to getting a nice chewy texture in the middle!
    • Serve warm – completely optional, but oh so good!
    • I won’t judge if you decide to serve it warm with a scoop of homemade ice cream, either.

    How long should I cook a Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake?

    The time will vary based on the baking dish or pan you use, but it’s important not to over bake to achieve a chewy texture. In this particular dish, I bake it about 15 minutes.
