Giant Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe makes six giant cookies. I only make them using gram measurements so volume measurements (at least for the major ingredients) are just estimates.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups bleached AP flour (unbleached okay too) (260 grams)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg (52 grams)
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 15 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into chunks (210 grams)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed (100 grams)
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar (80 grams)
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips (1 bag) Guittard

Instructions

  • Mix flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the butter until it starts to become creamy, then and sugars and continue beating until well blended. Add the egg and beat just until blended, scraping sides of bowl often.
  • Add flour mixture gradually and stir with a heavy duty scraper until blended. If using a stand mixer, you can stir the flour on low with the paddle. If using a hand held mixer, it's probably best to do this part by hand as the hand held can be a little tough on the gluten.
  • Add the chips and stir them in the best you can, then empty onto a pastry mat and gently knead in any stray ones. Update: Start adding the chips before the flour is fully dissolved. I'm not sure if this will change much, but it is a tip from Crumbl.
  • Squeeze dough together into one compact log. Cut or just break into 6 equal pieces and squeeze them as tightly as possible, then press down slightly so you have 1 1/2 thick disks instead of balls. Chill for at least an hour or until the dough is very firm.
  • There are several ways you can bake these. I recommend baking one cookie first to nail down the correct time in your oven. The most basic way is 375 degrees F for about 18 minutes (check at 16, though it may take 20.). If your oven runs hot, bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes. And finally, if you have convection you can bake at 350 for 18 to 22 minutes. Time will vary depending on how cold your dough is.
  • Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet.

Notes

Small Batch -- Makes Two, Use Weight Rather Than Volume If Possible
  • 90 grams bleached all-purpose flour (2/3 cup)
  • 1/4 scant teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 17 grams beaten egg (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 70 grams unsalted butter (5 tablespoons)
  • 36 grams light brown sugar (3 tablespoons) 
  • 25 grams granulated sugar (2 tablespoons grams)
  • 114 grams milk chocolate chips, Guittard (2/3 cup)
Note about baking.  I use one of the bake times listed above or I bake at 400 for 10 minutes then turn down the heat to 330 for 3 to 5 minutes.  Sue tested the recipe and 400 got the cookies too brown around the edges in her oven, so try 375 first or 350 convection.
