Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie RecipePressed for time when it comes to baking holiday cookies? If so, I’ve got a great time-saving tip for you today. When I’m short on time, but still want to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies, I’ll use one of my daughter’s large baking pans. By only having to put one pan into the oven and letting it bake (as compared to numerous baking sheets in & out of the oven), you’ll have your batch of chocolate chip cookies made in no-time at all.

For this particular batch, I used Shelly’s Wilton Gingerbread Man baking pan. It’s non-stick and holds an entire batch of cookie mix. Once they’ve cooled, I cut them into bars. In addition, I used the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe which is below.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 1 large pan
You'll want to mix up your entire batter and then pour it into one large baking sheet or baking pan.
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⅔ cups Nestle Toll House Morsels
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in by hand the Nestle Toll House morsels until combined.
  3. We used a non-stick baking sheet, so we did not grease the sheet. Pour all of the cookie batter into the pan, use a spoon to make sure the layer is even. Place baking sheet into a preheated oven and bake. It took about 17 minutes for our's to fully bake. Remove and let cool. Once cool, cut into bars and store in an airtight container.

    THe big bake pan would make it very easy to bake the giant cookie recipe. I love that the Shelly’s Wilton Gingerbread Man baking pan comes in that shape and is nonstick.

  2. Many times I find myself not baking cookies because all that shaping and scooping just seems like too much work. I love the idea of baking them in one pan and cutting them into bars, but I really love your clever use of the gingerbread man pan! So cute. I think I’ll be giving that sort of pan another look the next time I’m at Goodwill (I get a lot of my baking pans there). Thanks for the idea!

    I can think of a few people who wouldnt mind that giant cookie all to themselves! I ike te chocolate chip but wondering if it would work with sugar cookies ? I bet this would be super cute if frosted and decorated for a party or get together. I dont know if you remove it from the pan or not.

    Ha, I love it! That’s a great idea & I know my nephews would really enjoy that big cookie!

  5. Wow my grandsons would be so excited to bake, help decorate, and eat this giant cookie!! This would be great to serve to our Christmas Day guests!

  6. Does the cookie get baked all the way through in such a large pan? In the picture it looks a bit overdone on the edges.

  7. I would make brothers–one in chocolate chip and one in gingerbread! Honestly that sounds so good and just need to sub in some gluten free flour. It would be fun to decorate too.

  8. This is such a cute idea and I think these giant cookies would make a cute gift for some friends on mine this year. Thanks for the cute idea and recipe.
