Gluten Free Cookie Cake Recipe from Easy Green Mom.
If you have been following my blog then you know I am a huge Cookie Cake fan! That might be an understatement! My son has inherited my love for cookie cakes and requested one for his birthday. I wanted to make a Gluten Free version so everyone including my husband could enjoy all the Cookie Cake Greatness! I tried several recipes to find the perfect cookie cake. I wanted it to be similar  to the one bought from the mall! I had so many compliments on it at the party and they couldn’t believe it was Gluten Free. I maybe getting request to make this one at every party now. I won’t mind as long as I’m invited so I can eat it too!

Ingredients:

1 cup Gluten Free flour (I used Pamela’s Artisan)
1/2 teaspoon xantham gum
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick of softend butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons molasses
(If you do not have molasses you can use 3/4 brown sugar)
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
2 cups frosting of your choice (I used milk chocolate and vanilla to be like the one bought from mall.)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Grease 12 inch pizza pan with butter.
  3. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together.
  4. In another bowl mix sugar and molasses together using a fork.
  5. Using a mixer (handheld or stand) mix flour mixture with softened butter. Once mixed well add the following in this order: sugar mixture, egg, and then vanilla extract. Beat until dough forms.
  6. Add chocolate chips and mix well.
  7. Try to make a large ball with cookie dough.  Place ball in the middle of the pan. Spread out evenly, but leave 1 1/2-2  inches from the edge.
  8.  Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Allow to cool then add icing/decorations of your choice.

Notes:

You really need a 12 inch pan or larger. The cake will spread while baking and will spill over if not at least 12 inches.

12 inch pan

Easy to make your own brown sugar and I find it makes my desserts better! It takes a good 2 minutes or more to mix well with a fork.

 My cookie dough spread out on baking pan measured just over 9 inches. This leaves plenty of room and it never spills over.

You can see here how much it spreads while baking.

baked vs unbakedTo decorate I used a star tip and alternated chocolate and vanilla around the edge. I also layered the vanilla on top of chocolate for the message.
