My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie


Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

I live with a few cookie monsters.  Especially my oldest.  He can sniff out any cookie from a mile away!  One of my goals in life is to train him to make the best chocolate chip cookies on his very own.  Whenever I pull out the ingredients, he is right by my side ready to help.

A few years ago we were at the mall and he saw his very first giant cookie.  You know the ones.  All covered in bright colored (slightly disgusting) frosting.   Being 5 years old at the time, his mind was completely blown that there was such a thing in the world!  He begged and begged that we buy him one, in which he was totally disappointed that we settled for a regular size one.  Seeing his little sad face pulled on my mom heartstrings but, I have a hard time buying things I know I can make myself a thousand times better at home.

His birthday was just a few weeks away after that mall trip and I wow-ed him by making him his very own giant cookie instead of birthday cake.  He's requested every year since!

  1. Yay! Who would not love a giant cookie? :D I need a gallon of milk, please. :D

  2. I'm going to make this with my 2-year-old. I'm sure he'll love to make the biggest cookie in the world. Great idea using the pizza stone to bake it on.

  3. Wow I love this idea! Don't know why I hadn't thought of it, cause I definitely need to try. Yum!

  4. I made this yesterday for my son instead of a birthday cake (he loves cookies and dislikes cake) it was a huge hit! So moist and perfect!

  5. I don't have a stone. Would it be the same amount of time for a pizza pan?

    1. I would think so. Just check it before you take it out to see if the middle is cooked through. It's possible you might need a minute or two longer.
