Giant cookie recipe


To celebrate reaching 12000 views today, we made a giant chocolate chip cookie.

I love baking with The Sweetpeas especially Alyssa as she likes to do as much as she can by herself with me just watching her.

Ingredients

225g butter
325g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
280g plain flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
100g chocolate chips

1. Cream together the butter,sugar and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.

2 Add in one egg and beat. Add in the other and beat again.

3. Add in the flour,salt and baking powder and whisk up again until combined.





4. Stir in the chocolate chips.





5. Line a pizza baking tray with greaseproof paper.

6. Dollop (I love that word!) the dough mixture into the pan and push out to the edges to form a large cookie.







7. Bake at 190C for about 20 minutes.

8. Take out and allow to cool in the tray.



9. Now for the fun bit of decorating. (As you can see, Chunky decided to help for this bit.)

I let The Sweetpeas decorate it with whatever goodies they could find in the cupboards. I melted some white chocolate and they used this to stick on mini marshmallows and some flying saucers.





They were going to write 12000 but we had to settle for 12K.



10. Eat it as it's pointless leaving these things around the house.

After a comment, I realised that I hadn't even written about how it tasted! It's absolutely gorgeous. You can easily cut it into slices or chunks. It's a kind of moist, chewy consistency with a little crunch to the outside. I was worried that it wouldn't cook evenly but every slice is superb.

Enjoy.

  19. Well done. It's such a lovely feeling when you hit a milestone. I am close to one at the moment but thanks to not blogging for 3 weeks over a flu over Xmas I have been close to it for far far too long. This cookie being chewy on the inside sounds like an American style cookie and I LOVE them like that. The kids must have really enjoyed this. I made cupcakes a couple of weeks ago. You've made me realise I really must do it again. xxx
