Smartie Cookie Pizza

It is simply a giant cookie...also called a cookie pizza or a cookie-cake.  It's a fun dessert for all ages and is easy to transport to a party or picnic or to give as a gift.  Write a message on it with icing and serve it for any occasion.  We took one to a picnic at the lake awhile back and it doubled as a birthday cake for our granddaughter. Have fun with it!

  1. Yum. I remember making these years ago. They are timeless goodies!

  2. I have made these for years but just call the cookie pizzas. I sprinkle coconut, peanuts, rice krispies, extra smarties(M&M's are gluten-free), choc chips on top before baking.

  3. I've never made or tasted these. Thanks for letting me know they exist. The Grandchildren will be over the moon when they set their eyes on this!

  4. Yum, will try this for my kids for sure.

  5. I use a few chocolate chips and nuts on top, and if you sprinkle with mini marshmallows first, they will melt and look a little like Mozza cheese!

  6. This is a really good recipe. I first made it last summer and now my son requests it often.
