Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Literally the best chocolate chip cookies here!!!  There’s not much more that I love to do than whip up a new batch of cookies. I’ve done recipes for “one” cookie before, but these are a bit tweaked and are my favorite yet! Crispy edges with gooey soft centers. That’s always what I look for in a cookie. Oh and packed with chocolate chips, ha! Hope you enjoy this one!

Bake this baby for a good 15-18 minutes. 15 minutes will leave you with a gooey soft center. 18 minutes will be a little more cooked through if that’s your fancy 🙂

Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

  1. This cookie looks like the best idea. But I don’t think I’ll share (since I don’t have to). : ) Definitely trying this next time I have a night to myself!

  2. Susan

    This looks delicious! Is the pudding mix absolutely necessary or can it be replaced with something else? It’s not something I ever have on hand.

  3. Shari

    this looks amazing. I am wondering about the pudding mix as well. It’s not something I ever buy. Is there a sub?

    Thanks!

  4. jenn

    Thus looked really good but when I made it I followed directions exactly and it turned out horrible more like cake batter than cookie dough

  5. Sonali

    Looks delicious! I like the addition of vanilla pudding mix, I think it adds a little something extra. I do want to caution you, however, against recommending that people eat the whole cookie in one sitting as it amounts to 1,039 calories. That’s half the average adult’s daily allowance
