I am a huge fan of this recipe for a Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie on AllRecipes.com
I have made this countless times in the past few years and this is the lastest one I made back In June for my sister's graduation party.
I start using a cheap Chefmate pan from Target that sells for less than $4. It is 15 inches across in size and I bought this pan solely for giant chocolate chip cookie making. After greasing your pan, add cookie dough to your pan. In the photo above, I am showing you how I use a cookie scoop to arrange the dough around the pan to make spreading it out easier.
One tip I would like to share with you all is when making a giant cookie, leave 2-3 inches of room around the sides for expansion. If you fail to leave enough room, your cookie will run over the sides as it baked and make a burnt mess in the bottom of your oven.
To ensure the side don't become crispy or brown as the dough expands, I add extra dough around the sides before baking so there is more dough to move outward thus eliminating a crispy sides.
Make it into an M&M giant chocolate chip cookie by arranging M&M's around the cookie dough before baking.
Baked to a beautiful golden color.
Many people wonder how to make a "mall cookie" at home. I figured out the best way to achieve the mall cookie taste is to frost your cookie using 1.) Homemade Buttercream & 2.) Store-bought chocolate frosting such as Duncan Hines Rich Chocolate. You do not want the whipped versions of store-bought icing.
Once the cookie has cooled, pipe icing onto the cookie to decorate! I have taken these to a variety of parties and both kids and adults alike gobble this down right away. For some reason no one can resist these giant cookies!
