With this recipe, you can! Because it makes one big whoppin 7-inch chocolate chip cookie. Special day for someone? Make this and give it to them. Office birthday? Bring them their very own personal cookie. Wake your kid up with this or hide it in their lunch for school. Boy, would they be surprised. Because they won’t see any other cookies laying around, and then, wham! There it is. Better yet, make it for yourself when you just have to have that little sweetness.
When I saw this floating around the net I knew this was a winner and wanted to share it with you. And this is an easy one for the kids to make themselves.
One Big Chocolate Chip Cookie
2 Tbsp salted butter
3 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1 Tbsp whisked egg (To get 1 Tbsp egg, crack the egg into a small bowl, whisk until yolk and white are well blended, then measure out 1 Tbsp. reserve remainder for another use – (i.e., breakfast next day)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup all-purpose flour (scoop and level)
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup chocolate chips, divided
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place buter in a microwave safe mixing bowl. Heat in microwave until nearly melted (you want it almost all the way melted, remove from microwave just before completely melted and stir to fully melt. You don’t want it too hot or it will cook the egg and melt the chocolate chips when stirring).
2. To the melted butter, add the brown sugar, salt, 1 Tbsp egg, the vanilla, flour and baking soda. Stir with a spoon until until well combined, about 30 seconds. Mix in 3 Tbsp of the chocolate chips (reserving remaining chips). Shape dough into a 3 1/2 inch disk on a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet, gently pressing remaining 1 Tbsp chocolate chips randomly over top and sides of cookie. Bake in preheated oven 12-14 minutes, until cookie is golden. Serve warm or allow to cool on a wire rack. Then enjoy!
This would be so cute packaged up and given to someone on their special day. Or just to cheer them up. Have fun with this recipe.
