The Giant Cookie

This is a great cookie to fill in a celebration cookie tray.  Apple Crumbles has a graduation party coming up that needs a whole lotta cookies.  This giant cookie is a super center piece for the entire tray.  It will freeze really well and taste so great.  Make sure you check back on July 18th to see the decorated GIANT COOKIE.  But for now, this is how to make it your self.  You will need a 12″ round pizza pan.   The cookie can be cut into 10 large or 12 smaller slices.

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 3/4 cup Quick cooking Oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Nestle Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, oats, soda, salt.  In a separate bowl, beat the sugars with the softened butter until creamy.  Add the egg and the vanilla and beat really well. 

Stir in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Lightly spray the pizza sheet (I used a foil sheet with holes but you can use a solid pizza pan) with baking spray. Make the dough into a loose ball and put in center of pan.

Wet your hands and begin to press the dough around the pan, almost touching the sides, about 1/2 inch from the side of the pan.  Keep re-wetting your hands to avoid the dough sticking to them.  It should end up about 1/4 ” thick. 

Bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned. Remove and let cool.

Go ahead and decorate as you wish but be sure to check back to see the finished product on July 18th.  Love Cookies!
