Have you ever craved a chocolate chip cookie, but didn’t want to bake up a whole batch? Well, now you don’t have to! Today, I bring you my recipe for one Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie for One | Marsha's Baking Addiction

This giant chocolate chip cookie is as big as four cookies put together, perfect for when you’re only craving a few. It’s super quick and easy to make, too! All you need is one small bowl and a spoon – no mixer required. Simply combine all the ingredients together in the small bowl, then drop the dough on a baking tray, and bake for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely, and done!

This giant cookie is adapted from my Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I halved the recipe, and then halved again to create the perfect giant cookie that is stuffed full of chocolate chips. Absolutely scrumptious!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons (30g) unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon (10g) caster/granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (20g) light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons beaten egg*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain/all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cornflour/cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (45g) chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/Gas 3, and line a baking tray with parchment paper, or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  2. Microwave the butter until mostly melted. Whisk in the sugars until combined. Add the egg, and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add the flour, cornflour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and mix until just combined. If the mixture is still a little runny, add another tablespoon of flour. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Drop the dough onto the prepared baking tray. Flatten out and shape into a circle. Sprinkle a few more chocolate chips on top, then bake for 15 - 17 minutes. The centre will still be a little under-baked, but it's fine, it will firm up as it cools. Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before cooling completely on a wire rack.

Notes

*In a small bowl, or mug, beat a large egg well. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the beaten egg into the cookie mixture.

    Made this recipe today – doubled it and made 4 big cookies and a scrappy one (for me, cook’s perk). Wanted to give a thoughtful gift to 4 special people and this was just perfect. Flavour was lovely and made in a jiffy!!
