This isn't exactly an original recipe, but I found this treat so easy and impressive, I had to share. If you have gluten-free kids, you've probably felt the tug at your heart strings when they wish aloud that they could have just ONE BITE of a specific glutenous treat.
I have a hard time walking by the GIANT cookie bakeries in the malls without pining for one myself! This was one of the fastest birthday cakes to prepare to date, and one of the most fun to eat. This would make a really fun potluck dessert, too!
Huge Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie "Pizza"
1 package Pamela's Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix
Icing of choice
Decorative candles, candies or sprinkles
Prepare the cookie mix according to package instructions.
Cut parchment paper to line the bottom of a ~16" round pizza pan.
Spread the cookie dough evenly to cover the parchment paper, leaving the dough an inch or so away from the edge of the pan. The cookie will expand a bit while baking.
(This will be gooey! Oil or butter your fingers to make it a little easier.)
Bake at 350 degrees for abut 23 minutes.
Let cool, and carefully remove the parchment paper from the cookie. "Glue" the cookie to the pan with a few small dabs of icing. Decorate to your heart's content and place plenty of candles!
To serve, slice into wedges with a long, sharp knife.
