Afterschool cookies are a bit of a tradition around here. We make a big batch of cookie batter every couple of weeks and scoop out cookies as needed. It is a great way to welcome kids home, even the neighborhood kids stop by for cookies several days a week!
But, let’s make it fun, make Friday’s cookie more fun! Make a cookie into a memory! Instead of the regular cookies, we made a GIANT cookie recipe – Cause bigger is better!
Levi’s Giant Cookie Recipe
- 4 Cups of Flour
- 3 Cups of Old Fashioned Oats
- 1/2 Tablespoon Baking Soda
- 2 Teaspons of Salt
Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients together.
- 1 1/3 Cup of Shortening
- 2/3 Cup of Butter
- 1/4 Cup of Water
- 3/4 Cup of White Sugar
- 1 Cup of Brown Sugar
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add 1-2 Cups of Walnuts (optional) and 1 Bag of Dark Chocolate Chips.
Store in a big air-tight container in the fridge.
Bigger cookies are better.
When you are ready to bake your cookies, scoop them out onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
If you want to build memories with your kids and bake a giant cookie, spray a cast iron pan with oil liberally. Then press scoopfuls of cookie dough onto your pan.
Stick your cast iron pan into your oven at 350 degrees and let it cook for 10 Minutes. Keep it in the pan until your cookie and the pan have cooled.
It’s a GIANT cookie! Perfect for building memories!
In a group it makes sense to cut the cookie into slices. But half the fun is nibbling from something SO huge! Your kids will LOVE having a giant cookie.
