Cake or ice cream? Tiara or party hat? Big bash or intimate celebration? We all like a birthday (or other festivity) with options. Not only can we gluten free peeps have our cake, but thanks to Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix we have other tasty choices! I was super excited when I (insert modesty here) ingeniously decided to use Betty Crocker’s GF Cookie Mix to create a ginormous and scrumptious cookie cake! I’m sure you’ve all seen cookie cakes in your local grocery store. However, those cakes are loaded with gluten (boo hiss). So I easily made my own gluten free cookie cake and it ended up costing less than the price of a store bought cake! That’s a big ol’ win/win in my book.
Here’s how to make your very own gluten free cookie cake: follow the directions on the Betty Crocker gluten free cookie mix box. When cookie mix is a soft crumbly dough, transfer it to a 10 inch pie pan. Evenly press the cookie dough around the base of the pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes (cookie will be light golden brown). Let cool completely before decorating. To decorate this cookie the size of sputnik, I used Betty Crocker Easy Flow Decorating Icing (it comes with four tips for different style options).
Before you blow out the candles, don’t forget to make a wish!
