Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
Cookie cakes are all the rage with kids these days, and are an unexpected twist on a traditional birthday cake. They're even quicker to make than individual cookies, since you don't have to spend any time scooping out batter. Want another surprise? Sweet veggies and flaxseed hide brilliantly in this seemingly sinful chocolate chip cookie.
- Makes 12 servings:
- 1/2 cup Sneaky Chef Orange Puree (see Make-Ahead #2) or baby food carrot puree
- 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 package (about 17 ounces) dry chocolate chip cookie mix or 2 1/4 cups Make-Ahead Instant Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

> Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a pizza pan (about 12 or 14 inch diameter) with parchment paper.
> In a mixing bowl, mix the puree, flax, and oil, then mix in the cookie mix. Press batter evenly into prepared pizza pan and bake for 22 to 24 minutes or until light golden brown. Add sprinkles, if using, immediately when cookie is hot out of the oven. Allow to cool completely before adding frosting or other decorations.
> Cut into wedges to serve.
