Peppermint Cookie Pizza: enjoy this holiday cookie cake this year! It feeds your family or a crowd!

I pretty much love Cookie Pizza’s. Today’s peppermint version is one of my favorite’s, too!

My son celebrated his 18th birthday last month (I know, it doesn’t seem possible that I am a parent to an 18yr old…you’re all shocked right?).

Anyways, for his “cake” he requested cookie cake (or cookie pizza, whatever you call it).  I have made these many times in the past. You may remember this Thanksgiving Cookie Cake or my Christmas Cookie Cake from a couple years ago?

Well, I’m back today with a no-fuss cake today. No fuss as in, “you don’t have to make a tree or turkey to get this cake cute.” I added some of my favorite Andes Peppermint Crunch
baking chips. I topped the cake with a sweet peppermint buttercream frosting and sprinkled it with crushed candy canes and mini chocolate chips. Easy Peasy.

If you can’t find the Andes Peppermint Crunch (and I know I’ve heard it’s not everywhere) you make a Chocolate Mint Cookie Pizza instead (see the photo below for the “green version”). I used Andes Mint Baking chips and topped it with a mint frosting, green sprinkles, and Andes Mint Candy. YUM!!

Or…if you can’t decide. Make them both! I use this Baking Stone to bake my cookies on. Just be sure to keep the cookie dough at least 1.5-2 inches in from the sides. I also chill my dough, which helps too! ENJOY!

Comments & Reviews

  1. Cookie cakes are my favorite! They’re so much less work than cake, and I think they taste a lot better. What’s more fun than a giant cookie? And this one looks divine.

  2. Yum! I’ll eat the whole thing, then I still get to say that I just had one cookie. That works, right? Hope you have a great, Holiday!

  3. One giant cookie means I get to eat it all myself, right? By the way, you look great for having an 18 year old son! 😀

  4. cookie is way better than cake-I like your son’s taste! And this cookie cake is so delicious and mintyyyy!

  5. Giant cookies are the best – so easy, nothing to roll out individually, no dough to chill, love it – and with the peppermint twist, so fun!

  6. Cookie pizzas are the best, but seriously, throwing peppermint into the mix? Could you ever go wrong!? Swooning over how uber-soft and chewy this looks! My kinda holiday dessert. 🙂

  7. Happy belated birthday to your son!! I had no idea he was that old. You totally don’t look like you could have a kid that old! Cookie cakes were always my favorite because I could keep sneaking little slivers and nobody would noticed as much as when I snuck halves of cookies from the cookie jar. 😉 Pinned!
