Giant cookie

When I first moved to Ohio there was a mall that we often walked when we wanted to get out of the house… with only one baby it was feasible and actually enjoyable.. Now to think about walking the mall with all 15 kids makes my skin crawl and anxiety start in…  

In this mall they had a Kiosk that sold cookies by the dozen.. They always looked so good but price was not in the budget, they also had these giant cookies that I found so mesmerizing. Again at $10 a cookie there was no way I could justify spending that.

I tried many times to make those giant cookies but they never turned out... fell apart while the middle wasn’t done. Tasteless and a waste of ingredients.

When this recipe promised a cookie that not only tasted good but held together I was excited...  oh the possibility’s that could be made with this… Icing, cookie pizza, and ice cream pies I was excited to try it.

So far I have made them a dozen times, they have worked perfectly every time.  Chewy and full of flavor that takes less time to mix together than to bake.

Seven ingredients

Melt butter

Pour in with sugar, mix well

Add egg and vanilla

Mix well

Add flour, baking soda and salt

Add chocolate chips

With tin foil line pan and grease well

Pat out cookie dough to about 9 inches

Bake 13 to 16 minutes

Ask a kid if they want a cookie

Laugh under your breath as they give you the evil eye when they find out not all of it is for their piggish selves.

Giant Cookie:

8 servings or 1 serving for a teenage boy

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, cream together the sugars and butter. Add the egg and vanilla and mix. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Line a large (11X17-inch) baking pan with foil and press the cookie into a circle. Press cookie into a 9-inch circle, about 1/4 to 3/8-inch thick. When it bakes, it spreads to about 11 inches.
If desired, top the cookie with M&M’s or any other garnishes. Bake for 13-16 minutes until the cookie is lightly golden brown. Let the cookie cool completely on the baking pan – this helps the cookie stabilize and set so it can be easily lifted off the pan. Once cool, gently use the foil to lift the cookie off the pan.
