Spend $30 on a giant cookie from the mall or make my own.... it's a no-brainer! This recipe is a hit with everyone.
I actually double the recipe and put it in a 16" pizza pan lined with foil. It only has to be cooked a minute or two longer
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, cream together the sugars and butter. Add the egg
and vanilla and mix. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the
Line a large (11X17-inch) baking pan with foil and press the cookie

If desired, top the cookie with M&M’s or any other garnishes.
Bake for 13-16 minutes until the cookie is lightly golden brown. Let the
cookie cool completely on the baking pan – this helps the cookie
stabilize and set so it can be easily lifted off the pan. Once cool,
gently use the foil to lift the cookie off the pan.
