Homemade Cookie Cake from Break & Bake
We love to celebrate in this house. And right before Christmas we had several reasons to do just that. You see, III has been in graduate school for the last 2.5 years working on his MBA. It was a long 2.5 years for us both, but especially for him since he was also working full time. And he was working hard. So one week in mid December we were already planning on celebrating his FINAL class, but the Monday before he randomly called me from work to let me know he received a promotion!! His hard work and dedication at his company & his hard work in school was bearing it’s fruit. What an amazing week God blessed us with…and sooo we celebrated….with a fancy pizza dinner and cookie cake!
Now I have tried many chocolate chip cookies from scratch recipes, but in all honesty break and bakes continue to be my favorite. Here is what you need to do:
Preheat the oven according to package instructions and then lay out all the individual break and bake pieces on a baking sheet.
Let them sit at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes (depending on time of year) until they soften and you are able to roll them out into one big cookie. (Hint: put a little flour on your rolling to prevent sticking) If you want a shape you could easily do that too!
Cook according to package directions. I like to take them out about a minute early to create the crisp edge and soft center.
Delicious! Finally, after cooling, decorate…I put some store bought icing in a baggie, and then I cut the corner to be able to spell out CONGRATS and do the dots. Shake on a few sprinkles and call it a day!
I’m getting hungry just thinking about this yummy, gooey, goodness! So, do you have a reason to celebrate? Ah, who am I kidding….do you really even need a reason for a good cookie cake? I think not! How about that it’s Monday and you just need a little pick me up to survive the week…sounds good to me.
