Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Then there was the day my youngest son said, "You should make a giant cookie cake".

I used to buy a giant cookie "cake" for one of the boys' birthday every so often, but since they're grown up now, and besides I quit buying/started making cakes myself, we (they) haven't had a giant cookie in a long time.

So, I looked up a recipe and set about making a giant cookie....cake.

If you'll notice in the recipe it says to use a 9-inch cake pan or pie dish. 
And then notice in the photos for the recipe, how the cookie looks to be about 1-inch thick. 

I decided to use my (8 or 10-inch, I'm not sure) cast iron pan, which worked out great! The cookie was delicious!  It was also about 3 inches thick!

I sliced K a regular "cake slice" size of cookie, and it was like feeding him 8-10 regular chocolate chip cookies at once. LOL, but holy moly.
He loved it, but in smaller quantities at a time.

I had some left-over birthday cake frosting in the freezer I set out to let thaw while I was making the cookie-cake and letting it cool.

I used a piece of wax paper and one of my cake-decorating tips to "decorate" the cookie-cake just for fun. 

Next time, I would say I would look for a 12-inch cookie, or pizza pan with an edge, but I'm not about buying a special pan (or other kitchen items) to do a job that something I already have can do. So I think next time I'll divide the recipe in half (or maybe even thirds) to make it not as thick.
