Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

I have my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies; the one's I usually make because no other recipe compares.  That is still true; however, I have always wanted to make a really big cookie.  I never thought I could make a cookie like the giant cookies you see in the mall cookie kiosk.  My first thought is that they won't cook through to the middle.

All of my worries were put to rest when I found and made this recipe.  This cookie comes out perfect every time!  My hubby is a huge chocolate chip cookie addict lover, and he even makes them perfectly. 

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie {Recipe}
Adapted from Mel's Kitchen Cafe

1/2 cup Sugar (granulated)
1/2 cup Dark Brown sugar
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 Egg
2 tsp Real Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking soda (without aluminum)
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips (I use Ghirardelli semi-sweet or dark)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Mix in the egg and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and press the cookie dough into a 9-inch circle (approximately). 
This spreads into about 11-inch cookie. 

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until the cookie is golden yet still slightly puffy in the middle.  Remove from oven and let rest in pan for 5 minutes.  Transfer to cooling rack.  Once the cookie is mostly cool, cut cookie into 16 slices with a pizza cutter.  

Of course, you can decorate it or add colorful candies if you'd like!  It is, however, perfectly delicious just like this.
