Your family will love this Super Easy Homemade Cookie Cake recipe. It was a huge hit at a recent birthday celebration and is so simple to make.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1  1/2 cups (about 190g) all-purpose flour
  • ​1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • ​1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Decorator’s icing (I used storebought)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut a round piece of parchment paper to fit in the bottom of a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom (or springform pan); line bottom of the pan with parchment paper round, and set aside.
  2. Add softened butter to mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment (alternatively, use an electric mixer and large mixing bowl); add brown sugar and granulated sugar. Cream butter on low speed to medium speed until creamy and well blended. Add egg and vanilla extract to butter mixture and beat 30 seconds. Add dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt); beat just until blended, stopping to scrape sides of the bowl, as needed. Beat in chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon dough into prepared pan. With a firm rubber spatula or back of a measuring cup, press dough out into pan, pushing to edges of pan. Using another piece of parchment paper or layer of plastic wrap, place over dough and press cookie dough in an even layer in pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 12 to 14 minutes bake time or just until set and barely golden brown. (Do not overbake.) Remove from oven, and place on wire rack. Let cool completely (at least 20-25 minutes).
  5. Remove from cooling rack, and decorate with icing, as desired. Store in an airtight container.
