Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake recipe

This is such an easy recipe to work with. No crazy ingredients and a very straightforward method. It’s got a thick dough, so it takes a little work to spread it out in the pan, but nothing difficult. My kids are crazy about it. I hope you like it.


Cookie Cake
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips OR about 1 cup of chocolate chunks

Vanilla Buttercream
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp water


Cookie Cake
  • Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Dough will be thick.
  • Chill for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place parchment paper into the bottom of your cake pan to help the cookie not stick.
  • Spread the dough out into the cake pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for a couple minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

Vanilla Buttercream
  • Beat the shortening and butter until smooth.
  • Slowly add 3 cups of powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
  • Mix in the vanilla extract and 1 tbsp water.
  • Add the rest of the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add more water to get the right consistency.
