Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies are your next favorite thing to make at home. You already order CHIP every week (if you’re from northern Utah), so you’re already aware of the greatness contained in a chocolate chip cookie the size of your head.
These are a recipe all our own making. My wife has worked tirelessly making and eating cookies to get this recipe the way she wants it. She’s taken it to friends and neighbors to test their stunned looks and gauge if she got the size right. If you want to know if you’ve made your cookie big enough, there’s a simple rule of thumb, would someone look at this and say “wow!”. If not, your cookie isn’t big enough.
These cookies are perfect, with a golden crisp outside and a moist chewy center. They keep well for days and just one cookie is enough to last you all night. So grab a fresh cookie, a new Netflix show and a glass of caffeinated Rogue Cocoa for the perfect weekend!
Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookie
This chocolate chip cookie is the perfect answer for your "only one dessert" cheat day. Better than any cookie you'll find in a store and impressive to bring to a party!
Use a handheld mixer to beat the butter, sugar. Then beat in eggs and vanilla.
Slowly add in the flour, powder, soda, and salt. (Be careful- don't burn a stand mixer and beat by hand when necessary)
Stir in chocolate chips
Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup (it's the best way to measure it), scoop out a large chunk of cookie dough and roll it in your hand to form a ball. Ball should be noticeably bigger than your usually comfortable making. If you think it looks pretty average, it isn't big enough. (don't be afraid)
Place ball on baking sheet and don't flatten.
Bake for 8-12 minutes. The cookie will typically be brown along the edges, but look soft in the center. Don't overcook.
Remove from the oven and let cool. This is important as the center of the cookie will still be slightly gooey and needs to set a little. Enjoy warm, cool, and everything in between.
Learn from your first batch and improve your next batch. This recipe works for us at about 2,860 ft above sea level. You may need to adjust you sizes, or temperature to adapt to your area. Experiment to see how big you can make your cookies!
