I made this cookie on a 16 in pizza pan, using my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, and Don helped to cut it into a football shape. I am taking this to a Superbowl party tonight. Go Packers! I used a mock "better creme" frosting to decorate with(see recipe at the end of the post)
Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookies
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour ***I use about 1/4 cup more
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Heat oven to 375°F.
Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. ******I placed this on a 16 in pizza pan and baked for 15 minutes. I then cut out a football shape and decorated it.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 5 dozen cookies.
PAN RECIPE: Spread batter in greased 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake at 375°F. 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely; cut into bars. About 4 dozen bars.
Better Creme Frosting
1 small package pudding--vanilla if you want white frosting to tint, or chocolate
1 package Dream Whip(I buy mine in bulk from an Amish store--use 1/2 cup)
1 1/2 cup milk
Beat until soft peaks form---5-8 minutes. Make sure it is stiff enough to use in piping bags.
