    What Do You Bake A Sugar Cookie Cake In?

    You can make this cake in just about any baking dish – a couple pretty pie dishes, a sheet pan, pizza pan, tart pan, brownie pan or even Pyrex. Just reduce baking time for thinner cakes and remember my secret to a really great cookie cake – always under bake. Under baking gives it that melt-in-your-mouth chewy texture that makes it memorable.

    I’ve received so many requests for this heart shaped tart dish, and I’m so thrilled to share that it’s finally available again. You can get this darling heart pie dish here though and half the recipe. Of course you can use any pizza, cake or casserole dish as well.
