Fee Fi Fo Fum!

Giant Birthday Cookie, here we come!

Instead of baking a cake or many little cookies for someone’s birthday, make one giant birthday cookie!

Simply take your favorite cookie recipe, spread the dough evenly in a greased 28 cm/11 inch tart pan (the kind with the low ribbed edges) or a pizza pan, and bake according to the recipe directions.

Decorate as you would a birthday cake, including the candles! If you need a quick frosting to hold the candles, look here or here (soy margarine? oooh!).


This is an old old old idea, older than my college days, when my friends and I gave each other giant chocolate chip cookies for every occasion we could think of. But I had completely forgotten about this idea! Really, if you were born any time after 1900, you need to try this at least 6 times in your life.

Start baking now!
