In the recipe is says: Spread in greased 14 inch round pizza pan.

I don’t have a pizza round…so I got creative…

I put the dough in a big ball and placed it on a baking sheet. Then I took the rim or the outside of a springform pan, (the kind you use for a cheesecake).

I put that on the pan, so when the cookie baked it would spread out and the rim of the other pan would make the cookie round:

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes is what the recipe calls for. My cookie took about an hour to bake. So just bake it for 25 minutes and then check it and insert a toothpick in to test for doneness and if it comes out clean you are good to go.

See the springform pan worked
