Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (A Jackie Original)

Okay, so the recipe that makes my husband the happiest man in the whole entire planet (that's not an exaggeration) is my basic Chocolate Chips Cookies.  He could (and does) devour them. I know he loves them, so I do try to make them somewhat regularly...you know, because I love him so.

But...the amount of time it takes to drop each cookie with two 'helpers' makes it a daunting task, sometimes. And entirely too time consuming too.

Thinking back to my college days, for some reason, Cookie Cakes were big in the area I went to school.  Wegmans made a great one. (I miss Wegmans!).  I also decided I miss cookie cakes. 

Mind was a churning...recipes were reviewed...and the baker chemist in me developed what I thought would be a winner.

First time was a charm.  Turned out oh-so-delicious.  So delicious that this husband of mine nearly at the whole thing.

This husband of mine proposed to me only a month after our first date...when I gave him homemade whoopie pies. I wonder if he would have proposed sooner had I given him this recipe?  He does love them so.  Nearly as much as he loves me.  Or maybe more?

Anyway....
 Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (A Jackie Original)

 1 stick of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cream of tarter
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips

-Mix butter and sugars.  Add eggs, mix.  Add baking soda, salt, vanilla and cream of tarter and mix.  Mix in flour.  Add chocolate chips.  Spread in a greased pie plate*. Bake at 350 for ~22 minutes.  Devour. 
* To spread quickly, I use cooking spray to spray the bottom of the measuring cup.  I use that to spread the dough without it sticking.  Quick and easy peasy.



I always think dessert under the dome makes a house a home.  Perhaps you agree?

  1. I'm with your husband, there's nothing quite like a chocolate chip cookie. One of my daughters would love this with a candle in it rather than cake!

  2. This looks so good! My husband is pretty much obsessed with chocolate chip cookies. Every couple weeks he'll ask me to make cookies, and by cookies I know he means chocolate chip. To him, there is no other cookie! I'll have to try this cake out because I think he'd love it. And much easier than spooning out cookies!
