Zoo feed was running low and Christmas is fast approaching, so we decided it was time for cookies! Chief Zoo Keeper decided that he wanted a Cookie Cake. We tried to convince him he didn’t, but we lost. SO, our first bit of ‘Christmas’ Cookies was a yummy cookie cake!!!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
1 c butter
½ c sugar
2/3 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour + 4 tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
I promised Monkey I’d put this one in because it made her laugh. The butter was frozen
so we softened it in the microwave and we got a leaking butter hole. Yep, my Monkey
is a silly Monkey! She thought it was hilarious!
Beat butter and sugar together.
Add eggs and vanilla.
Mix flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar in a separate bowl.
Add dry ingredients to the batter and mix until well blended.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Spread dough into a 15 ½ inch round pan.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

While waiting, I was picking on the Monkey! She wasn’t very dressed up for the cookie
baking, so we I started taking the pictures for you she threatened me if I put pictures up of
her…. I’m posting the pics, she knows it, nothing will happen! LOL
Ahh, yes, back to that whole baking thing!
*More Jeopardy Music*
I used a silicone cutting mat to slide the cookie off of the pan because the spatula
was causing the cookie to break! 🙁
*It’s stuck in your head, isn’t it???*
Slides right off with the mat!
I know they are supposed to be round, but Monkey likes to be different! You can decorate yours
if you like, Chief Zoo Keeper didn’t want it any sweeter!
(He is a bit of a spoiled sport when it comes to sweets!)
*Enjoy the Jeopardy Music!*
Stop back by tomorrow for a bit of humor. Clearing the kitchen for cookies! Trust me, you’ll wanna laugh at my Monkey! Hope you enjoy your cookies!!! I would love for you to share with me your cookie cake recipe! Any variations from the Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake???
