Giant Pizza Cookie
I think this has been my favourite cook along so far on Insta Live. So many lovely people joined in and we all needed a bit of cheering up during lockdown half term.
It’s just the best recipe for children to make, super easy, super fun and super tasty!
It spreads to about 28cm so make sure you have baking tray big enough or divide and make two slightly smaller cookies. Go mad and throw all of your favourite sweets and cake decorations at it. It a great one for raiding the cupboard to see what you have left and perfect for a movie night in front of the telly x
I have put a few pics below from today, look at the space themed one from Annabelle it is just fab!
Makes 12 slices
What you need:
115g butter, softened
50g caster sugar
50g soft brown sugar
1 medium egg
125g self-raising flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
200g chocolate chips, I used a mixture of white and milk.
50g chocolate or chocolate chips, to melt and drizzle, I used both white and milk but you can just use one.
hundreds and thousands, mini marshmallows, smarties, chocolate buttons any sweets or cake decorations you fancy putting on the top, go mad!!!
Equipment: mixing bowl, wooden spoon, (or an electric whisk) spatula, baking parchment, baking tray, sharp knife and chopping board, if you are chopping the chocolate, 2 small saucepans, 2 small bowls to melt chocolate, teaspoon to drizzle.
What to do:
Heat the oven to 180°C/ fan 160°C/gas 4. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
Place the butter in a mixing bowl and beat well so that it is quite soft. Add the caster and soft brown sugar and cream together until light and fluffy.
Crack the egg into a bowl and beat with a fork. Gradually add the egg and beat it into butter and sugar.
Add the bicarb and the flour and stir into the mixture. It will seem quite dry at first but keep stirring until it is all mixed in, it will look like a stiff cake mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the cookie mix into the middle of the baking tray, onto the paper. Wet your hands slightly and press it down to for a 20cm circle. It will spread out to about 28cm during cooking.
Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 mins until golden. If you like a really chewy cookie take it out after 15 mins.
It will be quite soft when it comes out and it hardens as it cool. Make indentations with a knife to mark the slices if you like.
To decorate. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Allow the cookie to cool slightly, then drizzle the chocolate over the top. Sprinkle with decorations.
Steph's top tips
The cookie is about 28cm wide so you need a baking tray wide enough, alternatively you can make 2 smaller ones.
