My husband loves sweets. Probably the most enjoyable thing about cooking or baking is doing it for someone else besides the fact that one is learning something new.  So, for Valentine´s day I made him the cookie cake.  It was simple. It was beautiful.  It was UNBELIEVABLE.

This is a recipe I found on allrecipes.com.  Here it is:

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Ingredients
Original recipe makes 1 (14″) cookie
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions

  1. In large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well.
  2. Gradually add flour, salt, and baking soda, beating until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. Spread in greased 14 inch round pizza pan. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20-25 minutes. Cool cookie in pan on a cooling rack. Decorate as desired.

That´s it.  Really.  The only change I made was that I didn´t use a pizza dish. I used a glass Pyrex pie dish about 2 inches deep and 12 inches wide.

I made this for a get together at work and I was asked for the recipe numerous times.

You can serve it warm or at room temperature.

Or..if you are really naughty serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

If I were you, I would go for naughty. 😉

Enjoy! xxxxx Natascha
