Buttery Crisp XXL Chocolate Chip Cookie For Santa

If you are looking for the perfect cookie to leave for Santa, look no further! I have developed an XXL buttery crisp yet chewy on the inside chocolate chip cookie that will have Santa (or anyone for that matter) jumping for joy ๐Ÿ™‚

My favorite part…..it’s prepared in one little bowl. No mixer….minimal dishes, YES! If you ever get that craving for a single cookie, this will be your new go to cookie. The dough is done in under 5 minutes. Fabulous.

Take a peek at how simple and how perfect. Happy cookie baking!! xoxo

Santa will be so happy ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is your simple ingredient line up. Pretty sure you will have everything in your pantry to try these out today. I mean, you have to try it out on yourself before you give it to Santa right?!


Let’s get started shall we? Add your sugar to the softened butter.

Don’t forget the brown sugar ๐Ÿ™‚

Break out a spoon and cream your butter and sugars until well combined.

Take one large egg and beat it until completely combined.

Add 2 Tablespoons of your beaten egg to the bowl.

A little shot of vanilla.

Give a good mix with your spoon then time for the dry ingredients.


Mix a couple times around the bowl and….

…add those chocolate chips.

Can I just take a moment to say how incredibly awesome this dough is?!

Take your largest scoop and dump in smack dab in the middle of your baking sheet.

Buttery crisp around the edges and perfectly soft and chewy in the middle. Yes!!

This ginormous cookie looks awesome wrapped in a clear bag with a bow for that special friend too ๐Ÿ™‚

    My cookie was really salty in the edges and the center tasted like a pancake. I’m so sad about it, what happened?

    Really good recipe! I saw it and made it the same day. Took 17 minutes to bake in my oven and came out very tasty!

  3. I made this cookie today, but it did not spread much. It came out uncooked in the center and burnt on the sides. Where could I have possibly gone wrong? Please advice….I really want to make it better.

  4. I just made this cookie tonight and it turned out perfectly! I did cheat and use my hand mixer – I was a little lazy, what can I say! My teenage daughter and I split it and it was delish!! Defintely keeping this recipe handy any time I am craving a cookie, but don’t want an entire batch hanging around the house ๐Ÿ™‚ Merry Christmas to you and your family!! Love your blog!!

  5. I did a “trial run” of this recipe last night with The Teen. We had a handful of M&M’s available so we had milk chocolate chips (I never buy semisweet! blech!) and M&M’s in ours. HEAVEN.

    I am going to pre-make some of this Saturday morning to take to my parents’ house so we can bake it up there for Santa. And, you know, keep the recipe laminated and duct-taped to the front of the fridge so I can make it anytime.

    The hardest part was whipping the egg to the point where it wasn’t so snotty that it wouldn’t scoop properly into my tablespoon. Never though “snotty eggs not cooperating” would be added to my holiday stress list! ๐Ÿ™‚

    this recipe helped me decide! yahooo!!!! Grams is coming for Christmas … we are having 3 generations for a girls night of baking and crafting! Perfect for each of us to make our own, celebrate family and talk about all things wonderful! thanks!

  7. One giant cookie for Santa…brilliant! Plus, there’s no way Santa could eat the whole thing, right? Sooo I guess Dad will have to help out the next morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have to ask..has anyone actually made this? I am also curious about the centre baking without burning edges. And, of course taste.
