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!

One Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

This giant chocolate chip cookie is thick, chewy, and perfect for when you don't want to bake up a whole batch!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Yields 1 giant cookie

Ingredients

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

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.

  1. Wait, no mixer and I get not one tiny cookie, but one GIANT one? Yes!! So much yes! Marsha, I cannot even tell you how much I’m loving how gigantic this cookie is. 😉 Goodness, Monday just got so much better. Thanks for this, M. 🙂 Pinning!

  2. 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!!

  3. This looks fabulous! And I LOVE that you say it’s “for one.” I mean, first of all, duh… But I feel the title gives me permission to refuse to share. Pinning and adding to my weekend menu!

  4. A giant cookie and I don’t have to make a whole batch of them? Sign me up! I saved this recipe in my phone for the next time I’m having a major craving! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. Perfect thing for when my daughter or mother and I are having a cup of coffee/tea and spending a couple of hours visiting together.
