,Hi everyone! Over quarantine, I've had a lot of extra time on my hands. I was looking for things to bake, because I didn't really feel like making the classic brownies or sugar cookies. I looked all around the internet for cool recipes, and that's when I started baking more complicated pastries, like macaroons and a chocolate souffle. My friend Olivia also really likes baking, and around the time that school started, I saw how her treats were decorated all cute, and I wanted to try out decorating. My brother asked me to make a "Giant Cookie," as we call it in the Sallaberry household, and I saw that as the perfect opportunity to make a fall-themed decorated cookie. I hope you enjoy the recipe too!
Molly's Cookie Cake
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 can white icing
Gel food coloring
Cream butter and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Add flour and salt and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Dump batter on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Put another piece of parchment on top and roll the cookie dough out until it is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. It won't be a perfect circle, and that's okay! Bake at 350 until just barely browned (it takes about 12-15 minutes in our oven).
When finished, let cool and decorate with icing. An inspirational message is encouraged! XO
