Giant decorated cookie Q? - Page 2

post #16 of 46
Depending on the size you want, and I usually make 12-14", I would use about 1/2 batch or a little more of dough. I put a parchment circle on my stone (but you can use a pizza pan or your cake pans) and spread the dough until it's about 3/4" thick. It is about 2 inches from the edges of the parchment when I'm done. I bake mine at 350 for about 30 min-but it depends on the size. You can test doneness just like you would test your normal cookies at that point. I don't like mine hard at all.

Then, let it cool slightly, and pull the parchment onto a rack until it cools completely. Slide to a covered board and decorate. My stepdaughter always requests a giant choc chip cookie for her birthday cake. I decorate with BC.

Decorated CC Cookie cakes are a marvelous break from the same old same old! Before I got into making them I would get one every great once in a while at the place at the mall... but I would make them frost the whole top...none of this chinzy little piped design... cover that baby! Then you can pipe whatever the heck you want on it! icon_wink.gif

I worked at The Great American Cookie Co. for 4 years and this is what we did for our giant cookies: take a cardboard circle, square, heart, whatever shape you want- place a larger piece of parchment paper on top. spread/roll your cookie dough on top of the parchment, using the cardboard underneath as the guide to your shape. Your dough should be at least 1/4 inch thick. Lift up the paper to the light and you'll be able to see if the dough is evenlly spread or to thin in spots. place the parchment on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 20min. keep checking depending on thickness you might need more or less time. Let cool completely; flip baked cookie upside down on cutting board, peel off paper. Take the cardboard you used for shape, place on top of cookie to cut around edge. While holding onto cardboard, cookie and cutting board, flip back over, remove cutting board and you have your cookie on a board ready to decorate! icon_biggrin.gif HTH

Mmm, I love big cookies. icon_smile.gif

I find the already shaped cookie sheets to be quite small, actually. I've baked it in a sheet cake pan, and I always cut the edges (I don't like the edges). The GT heart shaped on is one that I cut out. I just use my regular CC cookie dough recipe and spread it out. I learned the hard way that it spreads (LOL), so I don't go all the way to the edge. I batch was plenty to fill my sheet pan, I think I actually had a little extra dough left (oh darn). icon_smile.gif

Definitely don't overbake. I bake mine at 350 for about 20 minutes (but I definitely watch it). It comes out PEFECT! icon_smile.gif

anglescakesmom - What kind of icing did they use at the cookie company?
post #24 of 46
I've done cookie cakes with sugar dough in my character pans, then just outlined with BC and pipe a border. They also spread a little so I don't spread the dough quite to the edge.

The icing used at the cookie co. was shipped in buckets from the company. It was basically a white, fluffy buttercream. I used to thimk it was the best frosting before I made my own! icon_wink.gif

My favorite dessert is the cookie companys cookie with their icing on it. Would you care to give me the recipe you use on your cookies?

By the way. I am new to this board so this will be a really dumb question. But suppose I see a thread I would like to refer to later, but not necessairly reply to. I see some type in the word save, I understand the concept but where do you go on this website to see things you have posted?

I cannot tell a lie... if I were irresponsible I would be mainlining that stuff. If you want to win me over... a double chocolate double doozie is your best bet if you're too cheap (or broke) to buy me diamonds! icon_wink.gif

But you're right... since I grew up and started making all this stuff the stuff in the store has lost some of it's appeal. Now it's more about ease and convenience. I cannot make my own cookies and icing while walking through the mall, so every great once in a while, I bow to her siren song and get one. Like once every 2 years. It stinks because the whole time I'm attempting to enjoy it I am thinking, "You know, mine are much better!" It's never as good as when you were a kid!

I just realized what you were saying there... that doesn't actually do anything. They are just telling all of us that they are saving that information so that they can try that tip, or recipe, or whatever we were talking about when they get a chance. It's like saying "note to self!" icon_lol.gif
