Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made chocolate chip cookies for my students last Friday and gave them two cookies each. They love cookies. I mean who doesn’t like cookies? My students were begging me for more cookies. They even asked for another half a cookie. This week I made each student their own giant cookie. They had it in their own ziplock bag, didn’t have to share with anyone and could eat as much of it as they wanted. It was a hit! They loved it!!

The recipe numbers will look weird because I adapted a single serve cookie recipe and times-ed it by 15. The following recipe has been adapted from







  • 30 Ts unsalted butter, softened
  • 30 T granulated sugar
  • 30 T packed brown sugar
  • 30 T beaten egg (crack an egg, beat it, I added egg whites mixed with regular eggs)
  • 7 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 9 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 30 T quick oats
  • 3 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used white and chocolate)
  • 3 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray or line with a silpat baking mat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Add egg and vanilla until well combined.
  4. Add flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well incorporated.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Using your hands make a softball sized ball that is tall and round.
  7. Bake for 17-19 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. The center may appear undone, but it will set and finish baking as the cookie cools on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.
  8. Cool cookies on a cooling rack.
