Instructions Checklist
  • Combine dry ingredients. Mix remaining ingredients until well blended, then gradually add dry mixture. Stir until well blended. Press out on a lightly greased and floured pizza pan. (if you want to add chocolate chips, raisins, or nuts, press them into the dough once it is spread on the pan.)

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Cool 10-15 minutes in the pan on a rack, then loosen carefully with a spatula. You may leave the cookie in the pan, but if you plan to serve it whole (like a birthday cake), slide it out of the pan at this point and continue to cool on a rack.

This cookie cake turned out great for me! I made it for my sisters birthday and read many reviews before doing so. Many reviewers said that the cookie came out bland so i added 1 and a half tsp of cinnamon half a tsp of ground cloves and 1/4 of a teaspoon of nutmeg. (im assuming instead of those 3 allspice would give the same effect as well). I really recommend doing that. I also added some molasses about 1/4-1/2 a tsp. The cookie cake turned out flavorful and soft on the inside yet firm on the outside. PERFECTION! The spices gave it a ginger spice cookie-esk taste but it worked well. I also added chocolate chips and used butter cream frosting. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!:) Read More

ok..a little bland I think it needs a little cinnamon/cloves/nutmeg and salt. I made it with 1/2 light butter and splenda for the white sugar which made it turn out more like a muffin/bread like texture rather than a crispy moist cookie. Still good tho. Read More

This recipe is just great!! I just followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. I added small pieces of dark chocolate to the top. I also used my hands to mix the batter it works much better and floured my hands to spread it on the pan so the batter didn't stick to my hands. You won't be sorry if you try this cookie! Read More

This cookie was very easy and tasted great!! My children and I made it for Daddy for Father's day. It wasn't as big as I thought it would be. I used my 13 inch baking stone and the cookie didn't cover it. Next time I might double the recipe. That's the only thing I would change. Read More

I substituted applesauce for the butter and pressed dark chocolate chips and chopped pecans into the dough before cooking. It was really good and kids and husband loved it. I had tried it with butter the first time I cooked it and have progressively lessened the amount of butter until I completely eliminated it. The family didn't even notice. Read More

Great recipe. I doubled the recipe and spread the batter in a 13 inch (throw away) aluminum foil pizza pan. I decorated it with icing for My daughter's birthday and sent it to school. Young children aren't always fond of cake in school. But they always love chocolate chip cookies! The teacher told me that it was alot less mess for her too. Great recipe. Update this pizza pan cookie isn't really something I'd take to work... it really is just "good kid food." Read More

This recipe is great. I added 2 tsps. of cinnamon. Very easy and quick. I will definitely make it again. If you flour your hands it is easier to pat out the dough in the pan. Read More

I made cookies instead of a cookie cake. They were good and soft! And even better with cinnamon. The recipe only made about 16 cookies which I thought was a much smaller batch than normal. The 1 to 1 ratio of oatmeal and flower really gives it the right consistency. Read More
