Is there a general rule for converting cookies into cookie cakes? Can I just bake a regular cookie dough recipe in a cake pan?

I'm guessing the dough won't change, but I was wondering about the baking temperature and time. Would it bake longer since it is essentially one giant cookie that needs to be cooked through instead of many regular-sized cookies?

Yes! On Instagram I follow a woman who lives in the Alaskan bush, off-grid needless to say, who bakes in a wood-burning oven. She ALWAYS bakes her cookies in bulk, so to speak, because she also has three children and did I mention that they live off-grid in the Alaskan bush? I would suggest reducing the baking temperature by 25 degrees, and be prepared to test the center for doneness after about 15 minutes. Add time in 5-minute increments until done.

Incidentally, @food52, she might be an interesting feature for you. Please DM me if you would like her contact information.

Yes to longer bake time.
FYI one example.
Compare giant chocolate chip cookie recipe (made in skillet) calls for 18-20 min at 350F vs. regular choc chip cookie recipe (made on baking sheet) bakes at 10-12 min at 350 to 375F.

Thank you! That's a good point. I completely forgot about skillet cookies. I was totally fixating on just "cookie cakes".
