Make your own Giant Cookie Cake

My son LOVES those big decorated chocolate chip cookies you get in the grocery store.  This year, I decided to make him one myself.  Once you buy the 16″ cake pan (I got mine 40% off at Michael’s), the ingredients cost very little.  Now, I can “get my big cookie on” for any occasion with just basic baking ingredients that I usually have in the pantry.  Here’s my version of the recipe.  Including the shortening helps reduce the dreaded cookie spread and not pushing dough all the way to the edge of the pan prevents spill-over and kitchen cursing.
