Not only is this Peanut Butter Cookie Cake sooooo good, but it’s for an incredible cause…

I’m excited to team up with friends to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and Dixie Crystals, Mediavine and OXO have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3,000 each! I’d love it if you would join us by donating here to advance the development of new, improved, and less toxic treatments for children battling cancer. Every dollar helps, especially when being matched by our brand partners!

The girls and I have decided that we prefer thick, chewy cookie cake over individual cookies.  A pretty heart dish never hurts either! Not only is the consistency great, making each bite like the center of a cookie, but it’s a time saver, too since you’re not dropping cookies on multiple cookie sheets.

This Peanut Butter Cookie Cake is especially delicious with a few cracks of sea salt on top served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. In fact, that’s the secret to my incredible peanut butter cookie recipe…sea salt. If you’re a fan of sweet and salty, you can’t miss this step, it’s a game changer!
