Cookie Recipe of the Week: Giant Birthday Cookie - More Fun Than Birthday Cake and Easier, Too!

Make a Giant Birthday Cookie and make your birthday girl or birthday boy (or any age) happy!

Let’s be honest: homemade is more personal than store-bought. A giant cookie is easier to make than a birthday cake. And who doesn’t like cookies? So says The Cookie Elf. GRIN.

And if you’re worried about the time you may need to decorate, worry no more. You can use a tube of prepared cookie icing. Save what you don’t use and pop it in the freezer until the next birthday in your family.

Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Bake time: 15-20 minutes
Makes one large pizza-sized cookie
