Hello there! Remember how last week I said I'd be traveling for a bit, but I'd check in and blog once in awhile? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. That was before my almost-one-year-old decided to wake up at 4am every morning. She'd be like, what, woman??! My body is telling me it's 7am, so wake up, and make yourself that hot smelly drink with all of the fatty cream, and play with me!! And so my days started in the wee hours of the morning, and by early afternoon my brain felt like mush. Hence, no blogging. However, that didn't stop me from making cookie dough. Because when you're out of town for a week and your brain is mush, you need to buy basic groceries like bread and milk and brown sugar and chocolate chips. I'm not normal.
One morning last week, at like 5:17am, I decided to make cookies. Did I want to make a large batch? No. Did I want to make a small batch? Not really. Instead, I wanted to make one GIANT treat, for me to eat for breakfast (mushy brains are dangerous). But for reals, what's more fun than a huge cookie... shared amongst friends or eaten alone in the dark before the sun comes up.
Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temp
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup of chocolate chips, or desired amount
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars in a medium sized bowl until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and the egg, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and flatten into a circle (should be about 1-inch thick). Place cookie sheet in the fridge for about 30 minutes, and then bake for 15-20, until cookie has browned slightly.
