Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake!

Last week, we threw a graduation party for one of the boys in my program.  He's done very well and after a year in our therapeutic program, will be leaving us.  We celebrate completing the program with a party, and the child gets to decide what kind of treat they want.  This boy wanted to have chocolate chip cookies, and my kids get what they want for graduation. I took it upon myself to make him a GIANT cake shaped cookie.  I pressed normal cookie dough into a silicone pan and cooked it for about 20 minutes, till golden.  Turned out beautifully and tasted even better then the regular sized cookies- I may do this more often. (sorry to smudge out the name, but confidentiality, you know)

The boy for whom this was made was so excited when he saw it.  His jaw DROPPED when he saw the cookie and said "is this for me?  I'm going to cry."    I don't know if anyone had ever made him cookies before.  The rest of the kids in the program thought it was awesome too, and tasty.  Just call me Mrs. Fields. 

This cookie was made using the standard Toll House recipe.  Google it.

So cute! That looks delicious and it's very sweet that he appreciated it so much. I especially like the little cookies around the main one.

I remember getting a huge cookie for my birthday one year it was the best cake/present ever. Great idea.

Haha I was wondering what was up with the picture, but then I realized oh she blurred it out. I didn't think you could just use regular cookie dough. I thought maybe it was a special cake recipe. Would a pizza pan work?
