Me Want Cookie Cake!

Does your mouth water every time you pass by a Mrs. Fields counter and look at the colorful cookie cakes on display?  Do you find it a hassle when you order a birthday cake for your kid and not everybody wants a slice?  I always wanted a cookie cake as a kid because my birthday cakes consisted of overly frosted Filipino cakes with extravagant designs.  Now being older and a mom myself, I always forget that my daughter (turning 4 next month) doesn't really know what cake is unless it's ice cream or cookies.

Same thing can apply to adults- I just made my sister a birthday cookie cake earlier this week and it was a hit.  It wasn't too sweet, not too much frosting and it was easy!  Whether you use an original cookie recipe or straight from the box, this simple cake is great for all ages.

- 1 recipe for cookies (homemade or box)
- 12 inch round cake pan
- Parchment paper
- Color icing tubes and decorating tips

STEP 1: Prepare cookie dough as directed

STEP 2: Take a big sheet of parchment paper and fold it into quarters.  Next, place the tip of the paper at the center of the pan and cut off any excess paper that passes the ridge of the pan.  Open the paper and firmly push the paper into the pan.  Spray an even coat of non-stick spray.

STEP 3: Spread the cookie dough evenly.  Using your hands is the best way to spread as much dough to the edge.  The edge doesn't have to be fully covered since this will be baked.

STEP 4: Bake as directed (roughly 9-12 minutes).  Once done, let it cool completely and decorate with icing.

Serve and enjoy!
