I made this for my mom's b-day. She is a cookie FreAk! She is going to love this! (i hope! I somehow managed to control my inner beat-licking beast and didn't taste a thing!)
Look at that deliciousness!
Preheat oven to 350°F.
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
-Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 eggs and the 1 tsp baking soda-Gradually beat in 2 1/4 cup flour and 1 teaspoon salt.
-mix in 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips.
-Divide the mixture between 3 greased 9 inch cake pans and spread out. (I used the disposable kind partly because I'm lazy, and partly because right after i made these i packed up half my kitchen!)
-Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes until golden brown
-Let cool completely
-Flip the pans over and hit the bottom to release the giant cookie.
-Put it on a plate or what have you and spread slightly softened vanilla ice cream over it.
-Do the same with the middle layer (but try to be quick so it doesn't get all melty and soggy)
-Slap the remaining chocolate chip cookie and a scoop of ice cream on top, drizzle with chocolate syrup and throw it in the freezer til you are ready to chow down.
