Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
Chocolate Chip Cookie
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup packed Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 egg yolk

- 2 teaspoons corn starch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Spray a 14-inch, deep dish, aluminum pizza pan, or cake pan with non-stick baking spray.
- Wipe out any excess spray leaving just a thin layer of the spray in the pan.
- Cut two 24-inch long strips of parchment paper and lay them crosswise in pan allowing them to hang over edges.

- Remove pan from oven and set on a cooling rack.
- Run a thin knife around edge of cookie, releasing it from edge of pan.
- Allow cookie to cool completely in pan.
- While cookie cools, prepare chocolate and vanilla marshmallow frosting.
- Once cooled, lift up on parchment paper strips, releasing cookie from pan.
- Slide cookie off parchment paper onto a serving platter or 14-inch cardboard cake round.
