This fantastical deep dish cookie cake packs a seriously sweet cake battery punch.
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 & ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 & ¼ cups Funfetti cake mix (the powdered mix)
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • ⅔ cup rainbow jimmies (the tube-shaped sprinkles)
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips, optional
  • Vanilla Frosting (homemade, or canned--I used canned)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 9" pie plate with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar & sugar with the paddle attachment, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and both extracts. Lastly, add in the cake mix, flour, baking soda and salt and beat until a soft dough has formed. Stir in the sprinkles and white chocolate chips, if using (I didn't here, only because I forgot! But I think they'll add nice texture and a pop of sweetness).
  3. Spread the cookie dough into the prepared pie plate, smoothing out the top to even it. Bake for approx. 24-26 minutes or until the top is golden, the center is set, and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with light, moist crumbs. Do NOT overbake, as the cookie will continue to cook as it cools. The center may crack and/or deflate a little as it cools; this is normal and okay!
  4. Once the cake has cooled, pipe icing around the edges of the cookie cake using a star tip; top with sprinkles. Alternately, you could also frost the entire top surface of the cake and coat it with sprinkles if you'd like, or leave the cake bare and top with ice cream.
