There’s something about cookie cake. The thick dough and gooey chocolate has this intensely comforting effect, especially when it’s warm from the oven.
Even better, this recipe is quick to whip up for a dinner or movie night or hostess gift!
Always, the start: cream the butter.
Add the sugars and vanilla. Beat well.
Beat in eggs, one a time, until well combined.
With the mixer on low, add in your sifted dry ingredients.
When the dry ingredients are almost fully incorporated, add the chocolate chips.
I always load mine up with chocolate chips. More on top for good measure!
Bake for 18-20 minutes at 350°F, until it’s a beautiful golden brown on top and a toothpick stuck in comes out clean.
LOADED with chocolate, and right on the verge of being undercooked.
Gooey and warm and perfect for a crowd.
Recipe based on one I found on So Festive.
