Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Cookie for your special Valentine.
Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Cookie for Two
Nothing says I LOVE YOU like a giant heart shaped chocolate chip cookie warm from the oven. We are on a quest for the best chocolate chip cookie, and the recipe we recently shared for the The Best Chocolate Chip Pizookie is pretty dang fantastic and we think it’s a winner! It’s hard to keep cookies in the shape of a heart after baking, so these heart shaped dishes are perfect for that.
Heart Shaped Cookie Cake
The size of this heart shaped chocolate chip cookie is big enough that some may call it a cookie cake! It’s basically 6 balls of cookie dough pressed down into the heart shaped dish baked into one giant cookie! We like to add the chocolate chips after we press the cookie dough down into the dish, and we love Guittard Milk chocolate Chips for this recipe…they are the best!
How do you make a heart shaped chocolate chip cookie?
There are a few ways to make heart shaped chocolate chip cookies, you can either use heart shaped dishes like the kind we are using here, or you can bake one big chocolate chip cookie and use heart shaped cookie cutters to cut out heart shaped chocolate chip cookies. We like using these dishes, because then you can add vanilla ice cream on top.
Can I use cookie cutters on Chocolate Chip Cookies?
Yes…you totally can use cookie cutters on chocolate chip cookies. I think the trick to help them keep their shape is to slightly under bake them so they don’t spread too much and lose their shape.
Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Cookies
Nothing says I LOVE YOU like a giant heart shaped chocolate chip cookie warm from the oven.
- 2 cups butter 4 sticks room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 5 1/2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 small package French Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
- 1 bag Guittard milk chocolate chips they're the best!
Preheat your oven to 350.
In a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream together the butter with the white and brown sugar. Slowly add one egg at a time to this mixture, followed by the vanilla extract and the almond extract.
In a large separate bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients: the flour, vanilla pudding, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, until mixed well together.
As you make each pizookie and press a thin layer of cookie dough into each baking dish, add the chocolate chips at this time. Space the chocolate chips apart, using as many chocolate chips as you'd like, we think less is more with this amazing recipe. Place as many dishes onto a sheet pan that you can fit.
Bake between 10 - 15 minutes depending on how under cooked you prefer your cookie.
Take them out of the oven right when they start to brown. Serve warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, caramel and chocolate sauce on top.
This recipe is doubled. You can easily cut it in half to make a regular batch.
