Bakery Style XXL Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ahhhh, summer is so great isn’t it? The boys and I baked these massive cookies last weekend together and I am so glad we did. My little stinkers were hopped up on the counter still in their PJ’s fighting over who gets to pour what into the mixer. Love these two boys.

Hope you enjoy our gigantic bakery worthy cookies in your home too ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s start with the butter please ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favorite toothless boys helping with the sugar.

Cream your butter and sugar.

My other favorite guy helping add the eggs. Thanks Mase!

Ok, time for the vanilla.

Once the wet ingredients are well combined, time for the flour mix!

Don’t forget to add lots of chocolate chips too ๐Ÿ™‚

Summer baking in the kitchen with these two. My favorite!

I wasn’t messing around when I said XXL cookies. This is a good heaping 1/4 cup of dough per cookie.

Press your dough down evenly before baking.

What you get are these gorgeous buttery cookies! Enjoy!


Bakery Style XXL Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 2 sticks (1 cup) softened unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cup all purpose Gold Medal Flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. In stand mixer, cream your butter and sugars for a good 3 minutes. Will be light and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.
  3. In a large bowl stir together your flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Slowly add to your wet ingredients along with your chocolate chips until just combined. With a giant cookie scoop or a heaping 1/4 cup scoop dough onto your prepared baking sheet fitting only about 5 cookies per sheet. Press each cookie down to about 1/2 inch thick before baking. Bake for 13-16 minutes, until cookies are baked through and edges golden. Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring. Place on cooling rack to finish cooling. Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container.

Makes 10-15 XXL cookies

    Could you make the cookies smaller or do they have to be XXL in order to turn out right?

    There is nothing better than a cookie, unless it’s a massive cookie! My boys also argue who is pouring what into what, I guess it’s universal. They are very cute!

    I loved these pictures! I can’t help but smile at your boys, they remind me of my brother and I when we would bake with my mom. She has always been a baker extraordinaire and is always baking up a storm. I have many fond memories of my brother and I helping her in the kitchen. I think this son is due for a trip to his mom’s for some mother-son baking time! Thanks for sharing!

    AAAH! So cute! I can’t wait for my little monster to help me bake cookies! I love the recipe, I have a similar choc chip recipe but flourless and with loads of peanut butter! Thanx!

  29. 29

    I can’t wait to try these! I’m a sucker for a big chocolate chip cookie from a bakery, they have the best of both worlds because they’re crunch around the edge and softer in the middle. Thanks!

    Good cookies. They are HUGE- I couldn’t put more than 2 to a pan without them running together. I put peanut M&M’s in mine instead of chocolate chips, and had to cut a bit of bake time off.

    Jenny – I have always looked for a recipe for those BIG bakery sized cookies, and have never found one that wasn’t dry and crumbly. Glad I found your blog somehow through and there was this recipe. I think I have the best regular chocolate chip cookie recipe, but this one looks like it is going to be the perfect bakery size cookie recipe. Can’t wait to try them on my daughter and son in law who think my reg. size chocolate chip cookie recipe is the best!!! Thanks for posting this XXL cookie recipe!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love, love your boys!!!!!
