Big Ass Chocolate Chip Cookie For Two (or One)- Baker Bettie

Hello there! Would you like a big ass chocolate chip cookie? Not a cookie with a big ass. And not a cookie that will give you a big ass (though that could definitely be a side effect), but a cookie that is, in and of itself, big ass. Am I saying ass too much? I don’t really care. I feel feisty today!

Big Ass Chocolate Chip Cookie For Two (or One)- Baker BettieSince moving to Philadelphia we don’t have as many people to share my baked goods with. I take them to work with me sometimes but it just feels weird getting on the subway with a cookie carrier filled with cookies. I feel like everyone is staring at them. And I feel guilty not offering one to pretty much everyone. It is so incredibly awkward. But my husband says I feel awkward way more than necessary. Life is just full of awkwardness. And probably too much of my energy is spent trying to avoid it.

Big Ass Chocolate Chip Cookie For Two (or One)- Baker BettieI’ve seen recipes for huge single serving cookies on a few other blogs before. Most notably, Sally’s Baking Addiction. And so I got the idea the other day to cut down my go to quick chocolate chip cookie recipe. I created this single “big ass” cookie perfect for two to share. It’s about the size of 4 large cookies squished together. The size of it makes the perfect texture. Crispy on the edges, puffy and chewy in the middle, and slightly under baked. In my mind, perfect.

Big Ass Chocolate Chip Cookie For Two (or One)- Baker BettieI’m going to go ahead and shamelessly admit that I ate this one all by myself. With a big glass of milk. Mr. Baker Bettie was at work. What else was I supposed to do? Sheesh.

But it feels pretty adorable to share this with someone you love.

    I think the 1/4 cup flour as the last ingredient is supposed to be the chocolate chips? Excited to give the recipe a whirl. Thanks!

    Is it wrong I want to make this for dinner tonight? Do I care? I think I will, anyway… I’m feeling feisty today, too!

    I love that you top your chocolate chip cookies with extra chips. A gal after my own heart!

      That is definitely not wrong at all! I say, do it! You should also spinkle a tiny bit of kosher salt or sea salt on top. A must for sure!

    Hi ! this cookie is soooo good! I was wondering though, if I wanted to use the whole egg, so I don’t waste the other part, how much of the rest of the ingredients should I use? Have you ever made a bigger batch? Thanks!

      Hi Jules, I haven’t ever made it this way, but it would be about double the recipe to use the whole egg. You may need to cut back on the flour a bit. I would add in like 3/4 cup of flour and then a little more at a time as needed to get the right texture. You could make it into 2 huge cookies or into several smaller ones. Let me know if you try and it and how it works out!

        Hi, I made it twice already trying to use the whole egg. The first time I made it as is, but used all the egg and it came out too cakey. The 2nd time I used a whole egg and doubled the other ingredients. It was still a little cakey, but not as bad as the first. Both times they looked Great, but not the same taste as the original recipe. I will try out your suggestion and let you know! Thanks!!!

    I just found this recipe, and my husband and I have made it for dessert two nights in a row now! It’s super yummy! We’ve switched it up a bit and used two kinds of chocolate chips and added walnuts. The possibilities are endless! Thanks.
