Make Something Monday: Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Make Something Monday
As much as I love to bake, I usually don't have a ton of time with the little ones, so I LOVE this recipe. I can still have chocolate chip cookies without having to drop a bunch of cookies on cookie sheets and then wait for them all to bake. I just whip this up and cut it into squares. It probably takes less than half the time as making individual cookies.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 6 Tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounce package) Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually blend into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12x5/8-inch round pizza pan with foil. Pat dough evenly into prepared pan to within 3/4-inch of edge. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool; cute into wedges. Makes about 8 servings. (I cut them into small squares and get about 30 cookies.)

Well...all that would do for me is guarantee that I would gain those 10 pounds from eating an entire batch of chocolate chip cookies faster *gasp for air* I am the Queen of run-on sentences! LOL

Oh - I just thought - you know what's even faster than this? buying the frozen dough! ;)

Looks good. I have never made a big cookie! I should the kids would love it.

That big cookie looks really good! Every time I try to make chocolate chip cookies they just don't turn out right. My cookies tend to puff up and turn out hard and crunchy instead of chewie. I'd probably mess up this recipe as well.
