How to make one huge cookie for National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

 Grab a cold glass of milk or a steaming cup of coffee because you'll want something to drink with this cookie! Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie day and I really wanted to whip up some cookies. The problem? I only had 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. I have a son that loves to treat himself to chocolate chips, so if there's some in the cabinet they disappear after a while. 

A quick google search for recipes that make only one big cookie was all I needed. I found a recipe that made one huge bakery style cookie and I got out my ingredients. The amount of chocolate chips I had left was the perfect amount. Before I knew it, I was spooning a large amount of dough onto my parchment paper and putting it into the oven. I baked my cookie for 16 minutes until the outside edges looked a little brown and crispy but the top of the cookie still looked soft. 

After giving my giant cookie a nice photo shoot, I bit into it. Wow! There's no words to describe a fresh and warm cookie out of the oven. My taste buds did a little dance and I just took a few bites. Being the nice mom that I am, I saved the rest for my family to taste. 

This recipe was so fun! I've always wanted to make one big cookie, but never had. This chocolate chip cookie tasted just like the ones I've found at bakeries, but without the expense. The inside was nice and gooey, and the edges were crisp. Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day to you! 

The recipe I used was found here, from BakingMischief.com.
