Change up the colors to make this easy cookie cake recipe perfect for any celebration or party!
Looking for a last minute red, white, and blue dessert to make for this Fourth of July weekend? I’ve got you covered with this easy cookie dessert.
The other day I was craving cookies something fierce. I have been trying to watch what I’m eating, but lately I have just been watching everything go into my mouth. LOL! Not really, we really do eat healthy most of the time.
But when a cookie craving hits, you just have to bake some dang cookies. Although, I took the easy (aka lazy) route and baked the dough into one large cookie.
Inquiring minds would like to know…would you call this a cookie cake, a cookie pie, or a cookie pizza? I baked the cookie dough in a pie plate and cut the servings into wedges, so I thought cookie pie sounded right.
I had a bag of mini red, white, and blue M&M’s sitting in our pantry, so I could make these Fireworks Cookies and Cream Cookies. I decided the giant chocolate chip cookie needed them instead.
When I was much younger I used to work at our local mall and on my breaks I would walk around. Inevitably, I always ended up walking past the Great American Cookie Company where I would stop and drool at all the decorated cookie cakes.
I’m kind of cheapskate because I do not like to spend money on anything that I know I can make. I never bought any of those cookies because I knew how easy they are to make and decorate.
Cookie cakes are so easy to make for any party. You can customize them with different color sprinkles and M&M’s to match whatever theme or event you are making it for.
How to make a Patriotic Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie:
- Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and beat again. (full recipe at bottom of post)
- Add the dry ingredients and mix until dough forms.
- Add chocolate chips, candies, and sprinkles and stir gently.
- Spread the cookie dough evenly in the bottom of a pie plate and bake.
- Once the cookie pie is cooled completely, add swirls of vanilla frosting and sprinkles around the outside edge.
- Make sure your butter is soft. It is easier to beat everything into a soft dough.
- If you want to remove the entire cookie pie before serving, add a circle of parchment paper to the bottom of the pie plate before adding the dough and baking it.
- You can also bake this cookie pie in a 9 inch springform pan or cake pan.
- Use different colored candies and different flavored chocolate chips to give this cookie cake a fun twist.
