The Ultimate Giant Cookie

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen all the GIANT cookies I have been posting recently! :) I have had so much fun making these massive cookies. What is better than a cookie the size of your head?? :)  I’ve gotten so many requests for the recipe, so today I am so excited to share it with you!

The best thing about these cookies is that even though they’re giant, they’re still soft and chewy. The edges are perfectly crispy and the middle is soft and chewy.

Giant cookies are great because you can be creative and add any toppings your heart desires. Oreos, M&M’s, pretzels, and peanut butter cups are just a few I have tried!

But for my first giant cookie post, I had to share my ULTIMATE Giant Cookie ~ you know, the cookie, Oreo, brownie combo! You may have seen my Ultimate Brownies and Ultimate Crazy Milkshake floating around the internet. Here’s the next viral sensation… The Ultimate GIANT Cookie!!! :)

Here’s how to make these giant, pizza-sized cookies! :)

Scoop 1/2 cup cookie dough onto a cookie sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper and coated with nonstick cooking spray. Press down to about a 6″ circle.

Then add your grab your toppings and go crazy!! You can add anything your heart desires. Check out my Giant Cookies on Instagram for inspiration. I added Oreos, brownie pieces, and chocolate chips to mine.

When you’re decorating the top of the cookie, the trick is to overstuff the cookie with toppings, because when it bakes the toppings will spread out.

You can even add more toppings right when it comes out of the oven if it needs more.

When it comes out of the oven, if the cookie is not perfectly round, just take a spatula and shape the edges into a circle. Be sure to do this right after it comes out of the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes until the edges just start to turn golden brown. The edges will be crispy and the middle will be soft and chewy. The best of both worlds!

What would you put on YOUR Giant Cookie??

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed

    I have been thinking of monster cookies (remembering a childhood shop in Oregon that specialized in them) and this just makes me want to run to the store for fun toppings! Looks great!
