Well, it was a busy weekend around here, so I didn’t get a whole lot done, creative-wise. I did, however, enjoy quite a nice weekend with my family, which is even better. :)
About the only creative endeavor I did undertake was my first giant cookie. Yes, you read that right: giant cookie.
And yes, that is a dinner plate. I made a 1/2 batch (yield of normally 2 – 2-1/2 dozen regular sized cookies) of chocolate chip cookie dough, and pressed it into a pair of heart-shaped pans I scored in the clearance section at Walmart.
(Valentine’s stuff was 75% off, so I couldn’t walk away from this set for $2.25, and yes, I bought two sets, for that price.) So each pan here contains what would normally be just over a dozen cookies each, to give you an idea.
You can use your family’s favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies – I used the same recipe for drop cookies we have always made. So this is less a recipe share, and more instructions of how to adapt your existing (fabulous!) family recipe from regular cookies to a giant cookies.
I cooked these for 15 minutes instead of my normal 8-1/2 minutes, and I feel like they were a little overdone – definitely not burned or anything, but cooked to crispy instead of chewy (I usually like chewy cookies – though these turned out of the pan really well). My husband actually prefers them more crispy so he was happy all the way around – not only did he get cookies as big as his head but they were exactly how he liked them. ;)
