  • "!Cookie Dough:"
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 butter softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • "!for the icing:"
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 7 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • food color or icing gels/dyes


  • In a large bowl mix sugar, brown sugar and softened butter. Blend for 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add in egg and stir.
  • Add in egg yolk and combine.
  • Incorporate cornstarch, salt and baking soda.
  • Next slowly add in flour 1/4 c at a time.
  • Lastly add in morsels.
  • Set cookie dough aside in the refrigerator to let chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Place cookie dough on a large round stone and roll out. Be sure to leave a 1" edge all the way around so that your dough can expand as it bakes.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. The trick is to not overbake.
  • While the cookie is baking make your icing.
  • In a large bowl, beat shortening and butter until smooth and fluffy. Add the vanilla, heavy cream and mix until smooth.
  • Add the powdered sugar 1-2 cups at a time, mixing well before adding more. Beat the frosting for an additional 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • If using multiple colors separate icing into mixing bowls, adding food coloring/dyes until you get the desired color.
  • Refrigerate icing in piping bags for 20-30 minutes before you are ready to use. Ensure the cookie cake is completely cool.
  • Grab the kids if you can and let them help!
