This is one of my best quick and easy recipes for dessert for two reasons: 1. It really is so easy 2. It’s ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. Trust me, you can make this easy homemade cookie cake for a kid’s birthday party, a girl’s night at your house, or an adult BBQ, and everyone will love it. This cookie cake just always does the trick. I know, I know…that’s packaged chocolate chip cookie mix see you in the picture below. No self-respecting cook uses packages right? I mean, if you want to make the cookies from scratch you go right ahead and do that. I have actually made it that way before and it’s delicious. Then one day I needed to make it on the quick so I used the packages and guess what, it was just as yummy. So C.C. is using the packages and the store bought cream cheese frosting and guess what…I have lost zero respect for myself whatsoever. So I would go ahead and use the packages if I were you because who has time to make three batches of homemade cookies from scratch (which is what it takes) when you can just dump some Betty Crocker in the mixer….
Mix all the ingredients. Make sure the butter is just softened, not melted or else you will have a mess on your hands when you go to press the dough out.
Spray the pan then put 1/4 cup of flour on it. Slide the flour around until it coats the whole pan evenly, then discard the rest.
Press the cookie dough evenly throughout the bottom of a jellyroll pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. You want it looking golden brown when you take it out. Do not overcook. I would rather undercook it and have it look a little “jiggly” in the middle than overcook it. Yes I just said jiggly.
Spread two jars of store bought cream cheese icing all over the cookie cake ONCE IT HAS COOLED. See picture below for two acceptable brands of cream cheese frosting you can buy – Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy or Pillsbury Creamy Supreme. Do NOT buy the whipped cream cheese frosting.
Sprinkle GENEROUSLY. I mean, don’t hold back. Really.
Tada. Speaking of jiggly. That is what my thighs are because I can’t lay off these things when I make them. I have a sweet tooth what can I say.
