Monster Cookie

Another easy treat to enjoy or if you are just not much into cakes and a very much a cookie lover here's one you can do and substitute for a cake.  A giant cookie which is often called cookie cake or cookie pizza. This is actually my first time to do this and I am so pleased how it turned out except of course for my poor hand piping of the message. I need to work on that. :)

Anyway, you can turn your favorite cookie recipe to this giant cookie cake. But for this post I am going to share an easy chocolate chip cookie recipe. 

Here's what you need:
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened 
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon 
baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups 
bittersweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup 
white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 14-inch, light colored, round pizza pan with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper.  I only have dark pizza pan, so I lowered the temperature to 350F.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, beating well after the addition of each. You can use hand mixer if you don't have a stand mixer, it will only take longer to cream it together.

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix with a whisk.

Add the mixed dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing to incorporate, and add the vanilla extract.

Fold in the dark and white chips using a spatula.  

Spread across the prepared pan but leave about 2 to 3 inches around the edges.
 Bake until the edges are golden and the cookie is set but the center is still slightly soft
 20 to 25 minutes. 

Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Now, you can decorate your cookie using some royal icing or just plain powdered sugar or some whipped cream.  It's your choice! :)
