It’s a cost-effective way to please a crowd, and I mean, who doesn’t love a super-sized version of a classic chocolate chip cookie?

How To Make It

Preheat the oven and grease and flour an 8-9 inch cake or pie dish.

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar together until flufy. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, and then add vanilla, salt, and flour 1 cup at a time. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Butter creamed in the mixing bowl & remaining ingredients added.

Press the cookie batter into a prepared cake or pie dish. Use your hands or a spatula spread it out evenly.

Bake until it’s golden brown or firm to the touch. Remove and let it cool in the pan. Allow cooling completely before decorating with buttercream frosting, then slice and serve!

How to Make the Buttercream Frosting

Beat the butter on medium speed until creamy then turn it to low. Sift in the powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Turn the speed back up to medium and continue mixing for about a minute.

Turn speed to low and add in the cream/milk, salt, and vanilla extract. Beat for 30 seconds before turning speed back up to medium/high for another minute.

What if my buttercream frosting is too thick?

You might find the consistency of your buttercream isn’t exactly what you’re looking for. If it is too thick, then you can add more milk or cream a Tbsp at a time until desired consistency is reached. Otherwise, if it is too thin, you can add 3-4 tablespoons of sifted powdered sugar (or a mix of powdered sugar/cocoa).

Can I change the flavour of the buttercream?

Absolutely! Chocolate is just the beginning. You can opt for vanilla, peanut butter, coconut, strawberry or even a swiss meringue buttercream! This recipe is as simple as you make it or as creative as you want to get.

Topping Options

Piping buttercream frosting around the edge of the cookie really does give it the look of a pie, which is stunning for holidays, and special occasions. Below is a list of other possible topping ideas!

  • A drizzle of chocolate sauce
  • A scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • Caramel sauce
  • Whipped cream
  • Sprinkles

How to store it

Once completely cooled, you can store this giant cookie at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days. If you still have lots leftover and want to stretch it out a bit longer, transfer it to the fridge for a couple of extra days.

How to freeze the pie

You can freeze the whole pie or slices, wrap in plastic then place in a freezer safe bag. It will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer.

Can I make this ahead?

Although this recipe doesn’t require any chill time to make the pie, it can still be done! Once the dough is made, rather than pressing it into the pan, wrap it up in a plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days until you’re ready to use it. It can also be kept frozen for up to 3 months, just make sure to thaw it in the fridge before adding it to the dish for baking.
