Well I'm not nine years old anymore. I'm nine PLUS twenty. So I can have a frickin' cookie cake anytime feel like it. So I made one. And it was delicious. Soft, chewy and filled with yummy little rainbow sprinkles. And then I made another. For a sweet little girl named Kira.
Oh, and did I mention the cute little fondant monkey face? Kira just loves monkeys so I felt it only appropriate.
XL Sugar Cookie Cake
2 sticks butter, at room temp2 1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon almond extract
4 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup rainbow sprinkles
The How To:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In your mixing bowl first cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time while beating on low.
Next add the almond extract and beat for 1 minute.
Place all dry ingredients into the mixer mixing well until blended. Mix in rainbow sprinkles into the dough. Spread mixture into a lightly greased round cookie/pizza pan (yes. press it and spread it with your hands).
Bake for 18-22 minutes or until center is cooked through and edges are golden brown. Let cool completely before frosting.
I tinted some vanilla buttercream pink and went to town on this cookie cake. Please excuse my warped and slanted handwriting, it was my first attempt at it. I need clearly need practice.
Next time I may just try a chocolate chip cookie cake.
Can you think of any others?
love.love.love & happy baking!
