I. Love. Cookie. Cake.
Did you hear me? I LOVE IT!!!!
I especially love Jewel's cookie cake. I try not to buy it because it's a little pricey, and a lot unhealthy. With that said, recently, I have been craving it like crazy, and the answer to the craving has been NO. So, when Keith requested chocolate chip cookies this weekend, I decided to use half the batter to reinvent the cookie cake I love so much. I changed the recipe up a bit to try and make it more cake-like and it turned out so yummy!
I followed the original Nestle Tollhouse recipe, except I replaced the butter with applesauce. I also cut the recipe in half and it was enough to make a dozen cookies and this cake.
To get the size and shape, I poured it into a round cake pan and filled it up about 3/4 of an inch. I cooked it for 13 minutes (but kept checking it after 10), until a knife came out clean.
