Awesome recipe! I used a 12" pizza pan, and it overflowed a bit but did not 'spread' like some people reported, maybe because the pan had a 1/2" lip? It was close to an inch thick, and I covered it with cake frosting to celebrate a birthday. Definitely a new tradition in our house, even better than store-bought!
My kids LOVED decorating this with the decorator's icing and fancy tips. I used one of the old pizza pans with the colander style holes lined with parchment. The pan is so big it barely fits in my oven, and this still spread almost to the edge. I'll try it again on a bit lower temp, as it was a little too crunchy on the edges for my tastes. Fun dessert idea, and one I'll do again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I LOVE this recipe and have made it over a dozen times. I follow the recipe exactly except I do bake it in a 16 in. pizza pan, spreading it to within an inch of the edge, and have never had a problem with runoff. I do, however, only bake it 17-19 min (depending on humidity) because we like our cookie consistency like that of ones from 'The Original Cookie Factory'--soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth yummy! I found that cooking to 20 minutes gives you a higher loft cookie that is done all the way through, but tends to be a bit on the hard side---the left-overs dry out faster,too. This is a GREAT crowd pleaser & looks professionally-made once decorated with your favorite decorator frosting. I've made them for potlucks, baby showers, house warmings, and lots of family get togethers---everyone loves them and is surprised how EASY this is to make! Thanks for sharing this Annette1.
