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!
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.
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!
How to make One Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie
Ingredients you’ll need:
- unsalted butter
- caster/granulated sugar
- light brown sugar
- large egg
- vanilla extract
- plain/all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
- chocolate chips
To make this giant cookie, whisk together the butter, and 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. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop the dough onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Make sure the dough is tall and not too flat. Place a few more chocolate chips on top, then bake for 17 – 20 minutes until golden brown around the edges.
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 until it is firm enough to be moved to a wire rack or plate.
TIP: To avoid a big cakey cookie (who wants that??), when folding in the flour, start off with 1/4 cup (30g), then start adding 1 tablespoon of flour at a time, combining after each one, until the dough is not longer runny, but is a very sticky dough.
I needed 3 tablespoons, but you may need more or less.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
This Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie is:
- super quick and easy to make
- deliciously soft and chewy (not cakey!)
- packed FULL of chocolate chips
- big enough to share, but that’s up to you!
How long will this giant cookie last? This cookie will stay fresh, kept in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Can I freeze this giant cookie? Yes, this cookie freezes well for up to 3 months.
I highly recommend freezing the dough instead, so you can have a freshly-baked cookie whenever you want! The dough can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen.
