What's better than baking cookies on a Sunday afternoon? Baking these Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies! We know many of you agree with us that sometimes a little cookie doesn't cut it, so today we made these. They made the kitchen smell so yummy, and we could have eaten all of these! Luckily they were made for friends, and not us.
Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1 cup Light Brown Sugar
3 tbsp Granulated Sugar
1 Large Egg
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 300°. Cream the butter with the brown sugar and granulated sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy.
Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract.
In a seperate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then, beat into the butter mixture until combined, and then add the chocolate chips.
Using a large spoon, divide the dough into 10 cookies. Drop the cookies onto a greased cookie sheet, about 2-3 inches apart, then gently press down with the back of a spoon to flatten the tops of the cookies.
Bake the cookies for about 20-22 minutes, depending on your oven, or until nicely browned around the edges. Once cookies are done, cool on a wire rack, and enjoy!
