Giant Cookie

I came across this recipe a few years ago, and when I was watching my 2 nephews one day, I thought, they would think I was so cool if I let them make a giant cookie. What kid doesn't love something that is extra big or extra tiny!  It was a hit! I let them help me mix the dough and add the chocolate chips. I happened to have some M&M's in my pantry and we topped the giant cookie with those and some sprinkles too! We cut the cookie like a pizza and they each had a few wedges! It was a hit to say the least.  Since then, I've made this Giant Cookie on a few other occasions, and I'm kicking myself that I don't do it more, cause they are so good and are such fun too!  This week I made one for my daughter's friend, it was her birthday, and we wrapped the cookie up and put a cute little birthday tag on it! She thought it was pretty neat (my daughter and her friend)! 

This recipe is extremely adaptable, it's a basic and yummy chocolate chip cookie recipe, but you could add any flavor of chocolate chips or candy pieces [i.e. M&M's, Reese's Pieces, sprinkles, chopped up candy bars, etc.] This recipe yield is 1 giant cookie, but even if you half the recipe the cookies are still giant enough to be cooler than your average sized cookie, I've done it both ways and it turns out great either way!

So what are you waiting for?!?!?! Pin this, bookmark this, and make it for your kids friends for their birthdays, as a congratulations to a graduate or other achievement, for your sweetheart for Valentines Day, etc. The options are endless!

Enjoy a Giant Cookie today! :) Or any day!

Great for gifts!

Printable Version

½ cup white sugar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup butter, melted and cooled
1 egg
½ teaspoon soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cup flour
½ cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium-sized bowl, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar, and butter. Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combined. In a separate bowl, combine soda, salt, and flour and mix well.  Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix to incorporate.  Then stir in the chocolate chips.

Line a large (11x17 inch) cookie sheet with foil. Press the cookie into a circle and place in the center of the cookie sheet. I press my cookie into a 8-inch circle, about ¼ to ½ inch thick. When it bakes, it spreads to about 10 ½ to 11 inches

If desired, top the cookie with M&M’s or any other candies or garnishes. Bake for 12-16 minutes until the cookie is lightly golden brown. When it’s done baking, place the cookie sheet on a wire rack and let the cookie cool completely on the pan - this helps it 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.

Makes one giant cookie!
