Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake


April 24, 2013

Inspired by Half Baked - the Cake Blog, 15 years and many days of chocolate chip cookie baking.

  • Makes: Serves 8-10.


1 cup butter, at room temperature

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 cup mini chocolate chips (or 1 1/2 cups regular)

3-4 cups vanilla, chocolate or cream cheese frosting


1Preheat the oven to 325F.

2In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars for a couple minutes, until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir or beat on low speed until almost combined; add the chocolate chips and stir just until the dough comes together.

3Scoop about 1/3-1/2 cup of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet; you should be able to fit two on one larger sheet, spacing them well apart. Cover with a piece of waxed or parchment paper and press down to flatten them to about 1/2" thick. Peel off the paper.

4Bake for about 14 minutes, until pale golden and just set. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

5Spread cooled cookies generously with frosting, stacking them as you go. Let sit for several hours, then slice into thin wedges, or remove each cookie from the stack to serve.
