Recipe by PrimQuilter
I finally found this recipe after looking for it for years! I used to make this for my boys on their birthdays but switched to cinnamon rolls after I misplaced the recipe. I top it with re-whipped store bought frosting and mini m&m's. Printed in the winter 1998 issue of Mr. Food's Easycooking and posted here so I won't lose it again!

I made this today as a trial run for my daughter's upcoming 9th birthday party. It worked great. We have a milk and soy allergy so I made it with Tenderflake shortening instead of butter. I baked it on convection at 335 degrees for 12 minutes and it was a perfect consistency with a golden color. We plan to ice the actual birthday one with white frosting and let the kids decorate their piece with gummy bears and jelly beans themselves. The party is at a glow in the dark mini put so the white icing will really shine and the cookie will be a great base for the toppings Thanks for the recipe.

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, beat together brown & white sugars, butter, egg and vanilla until creamy.
- Add flour and baking soda, mixing well. The dough will be stiff.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Spread evenly on a 12 inch pizza pan.
- Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. (I made this yesterday and mine took 20 minutes in a deep dish pan). It looked a bit undercooked, but after cooling, it made a nice chewy cookie.
- Cool completely.
- Spread frosting over top of cookie, leaving a 1/4 inch border around the edges.
- Sprinkle with optional ingredients if desired.
- Cut into 16 wedges.
