Last Sunday, we celebrated Brent’s coming up birthday this week with some of his family. We went out to dinner and then came back to our house for dessert. When I asked him what he would want he asked for like 15 things! One being Creme Brulee HA I told him I could only make one dessert with the baby so he picked a cookie cake.
I am an avid reader of the Pioneer Woman’s blog and last week she posted about a party for her daughter’s birthday and the dessert was a cookie cake ice cream sundae, which I pinned for future use! So I went right to that pin and got the directions for the cake! Here is the pin that inspired me.
Like I said it is from Pioneer Woman. If you love food then you should follow her blog! Plus she takes great pictures. You can also catch her on Food Network, which I watch as well. All her stuff is really easy to make and she doesn’t use anything crazy that you have to go to a specialty store for. Check her out. I followed her recipe for the cake to the T. Well actually I added more chocolate chips.
Here is what I did.
What you will need:
- 2 sticks of Unsalted Butter, softened
- 1 cup of Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup of Sugar
- 2 whole Eggs
- 2 teaspoons of Vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups of Flour
- 1 heaping teaspoon of Instant Coffee Granules
- 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of Salt
- 12 ounces of Chocolate Chips
First thing you do is preheat your oven to 375 degrees and prepare your 9 x 13 baking sheet.Spray a little cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Then cream together your butter, brown sugar and sugar together in your mixer. Make sure your butter is softened or it will be harder to mix this together.
Then add your eggs, one at a time mixing well after each one.
Then add your vanilla and mix until combined.
In a separate bowl, stir together your flour, instant coffee, baking soda and salt.
Then slowly start adding your dry ingredients into your wet. Make sure you don’t have your mixer on too high or your will have your dry ingredients everywhere!
Once all your dry ingredients are incorporated and the batter is mixed, add in your chocolate chips.
Then pour your batter onto the cookie sheet.
Spread it out evenly and flat.
Bake for 16-20 minutes or until done. You want to let it cool so that you can cut and get the cookie out in a piece.
Add your desired toppings and enjoy! This was Brent’s, he wanted just ice cream and caramel sauce. I added the candles!
I hope you give it a try!
Until next time!
