one giant cookie

i saw this recipe and just had to try it.
maybe i tried it 3 times last week, i can't remember...
i was actually surprised when it worked. it seems like giant cookies never work- but we loved this one(all 3 times). i love the idea of transferring the cookie to a cardboard circle or putting it in a pizza box and giving to someone.
here's the recipe again- originally i found it here.
(if you go to the original recipe, read the comments on the post. i thought there were some great helpful hints on it)
One Giant Cookie
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, cream together the sugars and butter. Add the egg and vanilla and mix. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Line a large cookie sheet with foil and press the cookie into a circle. I pressed mine to about 1/4 to 3/8-inch thick. When it bakes, it spread, which filled up my pan pretty well.
Bake for 13-16 minutes until the cookie is lightly golden brown. Let the cookie cool completely on the baking pan – this helps the cookie stabilize and set so it can be easily lifted off the pan. Once cool, gently use the foil to lift the cookie off the pan.

You should probably call this cookie, "Try not to eat the whole thing, I dare you!" because it is that good! It's just a good thing that I felt extra nauseous yesterday or I think I could have eaten the whole thing. This will be perfect to make for Rachel's bake sale. Thanks for the grand idea!

This cookie is just too good. Size factor aside, the recipe is actually one of the best for classic chocolate chip cookies that I've ever tried - hands down.

My personal recommendation is to use tiny, semi-sweet chocolate chips as opposed to bigger ones. Nestle's do the trick.

Thanks for the phenomenal idea!

This was perfect for my son's birthday! The whole family loved it and my husband asked me to make it again for his upcoming birthday.
