This is such a quick and easy recipe to make, and a huge hit!
Perfect for people who love cookies, or a fast way to celebrate or say thank you.

I made this for the Emergency First Response Team on my university campus, and they loved it.
I've also made it for my housemates... it was gone in a day!

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of butter 
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
  • Icing (optional)


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375°F

Line a pizza pan with parchment paper.
Leave an inch to two inches excess, for the cookie to expand when baking.

Soften the butter, and add the sugar. Use an electric mixer to cream together.
Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
Next,  add the flour, baking soda and salt.
Use an electric mixer until fully combined together.

Add in the chocolate chips.
recommend using 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips, and adding the last 1/2 a little at a time.
This depends on how chocolatey you want it to be!

Spread the batter evenly over the parchment paper, to fill the pizza pan almost completely.

I recommend taking 1/2 cup of dough out before spreading it on the pan.
I find the edges get close to spilling over, while cooking.
If you decide to take 1/2 cup of dough out, cook it on a separate pan lined with parchment paper, for 10-15 minutes.

Bake the big pizza pan cookie for 20-25 minutes.
You want the centre of your cookie to turn golden. If you don't wait long enough, the middle with be very soft and dough-like.

Let the cookie cool fully.


Icing:
If you decide to ice your cookie, you need a thicker icing, that will set in place.
I used a tub of Betty Crocker frosting, plus icing sugar and food colouring.

Start by emptying 3/4 of a tub of Betty Crocker frosting into a bowl.
Add 1/2 cup of icing sugar and use an electric mixer to combine.
Keep adding more icing sugar until the icing seems thicker.
Add the food colouring until reaching the desired colour.

Using a piping bag to pipe on your design.





Enjoy!

UPDATE: I've made these a few times now and it turns out amazing every time. Above are pictures from two different cookie cakes I made!
