Happy Birthday Cookie

Years ago I used to buy those giant chocolate chip cookies that were sold at the mall. It’s been so long since I went to the mall, I don’t know if they are still in business. Recently my middle son Jonathan celebrated his birthday and he decided on a big cookie instead of cake. It was fun making this big cookie for him.for him.

Ingredients:

1 stick butter, room temperature

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups semi sweet semi sweet chocolate chips

Frosting and sprinkles for decorating

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and combine. Stir in chocolate chips. I used an 11.5 inch Wilton cookie pan that had been sprayed well with nonstick cooking spray with flour. You could free form it on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely before decorating. Cut into slices with a pizza cutter. Enjoy!

A large pizza box is the perfect transportation vessel! Thank you Hungry Howies for giving me a clean pizza box and liner.
