Ingredients

For the sugar cookie cake:

  • 2 cups (250 grams) all-purpose flour (spooned & leveled)
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (45 grams) sprinkles
  • 1/2 cup (85 grams) white chocolate chips

For the vanilla frosting:

  • 1/2 cup (115 grams) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (180 grams) powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

To make the sugar cookie cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 inch springform pan (or cake pan) with nonstick cookie spray and set aside.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for 1-2 minutes or until well combined. Mix in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract until fully combined.
  • Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until just combined, then gently mix in the sprinkles and white chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the cookie dough into the prepared pan and press it down into one even layer. Bake at 350°F for 30-40 minutes or until the top of the cookie cake is set and the edges are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the vanilla frosting:

  • In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, beat the butter until smooth. Mix in the powdered sugar until the mixture starts to come together, then mix in the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract until well combined and smooth.
  • Once the cookie cake has cooled, carefully remove it from the springform pan. Pipe the frosting on the cooled cookie cake as desired.
