Big Cookie Recipe
Alright, technically this recipe does not fit the usual fare for what I am establishing on this site. However, who doesn’t love those big old cookies we get in the mall? Southerners do, I’m sure!
Since I made one last night, why not post the tutorial?
This is the quick and easy version. You are welcome to draw it out and make it from scratch – but sometimes we all need a bit of a “wow” effect without the work. Forgive my shoddy decorating, ye olde hands aren’t what they used to be!
You need light corn syrup, Pilsbury Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (how many rolls depends on what size big cookie you want to make. I used three rolls on an 11×17 jelly roll pan). Two cans of store bought icing. Duncan Hines Classic Chocolate is right on the money this.
Pat it out to fit the pan with your hand. Wet your hand and this will be a breeze! Keep wetting your hand, don’t worry about getting water on top of the dough as it will evaporate in no time once you stick it in the oven! Bake at 325 for 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of cookie you are making. If a little cooks up onto the sides, I just trim it off with a pizza cutter.
I decorated this entire thing with a small star tip. Start by making your puffs around the sides and then write your letters in white, a little thick. Normally, you make the white letters touch and much thicker than I did here but….I was in a hurry. Out of town guests are on their way to my house as we speak! I’ll post more pics of other cookies I’ve done one of these days but here ya go! You still have time to do this for the fourth!
