The Giant Cookie

You've heard of cookie in a cup. Well, this is a thousand times better. It is the recipe for one giant delicious cookie that will take away all sweet cravings with just a few bites and the calories don't linger around the house for days on end tempting their fate to enter your belly and later your waist. James made this for me while I was at the gym tonight (because he loves me). I know it is a little bit counter productive, but at least I went to the gym. We shared the cookie and it was the perfect amount. No leftovers, no over indulging, I would almost call it guilt free,... if it weren't packed with calories... but at least it limits the calories that you can intake all at once. Overall, this is a very delicious recipe, so delicious in fact that we tried it tonight and I had to blog about it tonight. The picture is a link to the original site, and the auther has other giant cookie recipes if double chocolate is not what your craving tonight.

The Giant Cookie

2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp beaten egg (crack an egg, beat it and measure two Tbsp)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips + 1 Tbsp (divided)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or baking mat.
2. In a medium bowl, mix butter and sugars together with a fork until creamed. Mix in egg and vanilla.
3 In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Pour dry ingrediants in the wet and mix to combine. Fold in 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
4. Place the dough in the center of the baking sheet and bold inta tall ball using a spoon. Dot the top of the cookie with 1 Tbsp of chocolate chips. Bake for 14-15 minutes or up to 16 minutes. The cookie will appear very soft but will firm up as it cools. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.
5. You should probably share with someone you love, unless you are having a really bad day. Just a suggestion.
