Do you have a special someone in your life with a birthday or celebratory event coming up who prefers cookies over cake? Or perhaps you have a potluck on the calendar and you want to bring a tantalizing dessert that will blow everyone away! Either way, this mega-sized deep dish cookie cake is definitely the way to go. Seriously, this dessert is an absolute show stopper, simply because it is one giant, soft, delicious-looking (and tasting) COOKIE.

Aside from that, I should point out that this deep dish treat is incredibly easy to make AND it serves up to 16 people.  Honestly, does this deep dish cookie cake have “party time” written all over it or what?! (I mean that figuratively not literally… although you could get creative with your frosting if you want!)

Alright then, let’s talk about how to make this mega cookie cake.

1. First, pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees.  Then, lightly grease a 12-inch round deep dish pan with oil or cooking spray.  THIS is the deep dish pan I use and it’s perfect for this cookie cake.  Otherwise, I imagine a 12-inch cast iron skillet would work, as well.

2. Take three Peanut’s Bake Shop Cookie Kits (which you can buy HERE), empty all of the mix into a large mixing bowl, and then add the amount of water and oil stated on the back of the packages.  To clarify, since you’re using three cookie kits, you’ll need to triple the amount of water and oil stated on the back, as well. For instance, if you choose the original Chocolate Chunk flavor for this cake, you’ll need three Chocolate Chunk Cookie Kits,  3/4 cup of oil,  and then 1/2 cup + 1 Tb. water. Then – stir away!

3. Once you’re at the point where you’re staring at a big bowl of cookie dough, resist the temptation to eat it all and instead transfer that dough over to your greased pan.  You’ll then want to smooth over and flatten the surface using your hands or the back of a spatula.

4. Bake your mega cookie cake in your preheated oven for 24 – 26 minutes or until the edges start to turn a golden brown color. Once it’s done, place it on a cooling rack to cool.

5. If you plan on decorating your cake with frosting, wait until it’s completely cool before doing so.

That’s it!  I told ya it was easy.

I should mention two things – when you’re ready to serve, getting that first piece out can be tricky.  I recommend using an off-set spatula or a pie serving spatula for this job.  Also, know that a little goes a long way with this cookie cake since it’s very decadent, therefore, serve small pieces at first and then offer seconds later.

I hope you and yours love this mega deep dish cookie cake as much as we do! YUM.

Notes

Decorating notes: If you choose to decorate your mega cookie with frosting, HERE is my recipe for Vegan Vanilla Frosting; it goes marvelously with this cookie cake!  I cut this frosting recipe in half, which seems to make the perfect amount for decorating the edges and such.  FYI - I do not recommend frosting the entire surface of the cake; you want to be able to see the cookie for that "wow factor," plus it may turn out too sweet if you do.
