One of the things I did for several of our teachers for part of their end of the year gifts was to make these GIANT cookies.
They are literally 12+ inches around!
And so very YUMMY!

I have tried to make cake size cookies before..and they NEVER work!
They are usually too cooked on the edges, and undercooked in the middle.
This however is the most perfect cookie cake you could ever want!
It is soft, not too sugary, and you could customize it in any way!

(That is my cell phone for a size comparison.)
I bought 12" cardboard cake rounds from Michaels.
Wrapped them in tinfoil and the cookies fit just perfectly!
Then I wrapped the whole thing in saran wrap... and prettied it up with a bow!

I added a book of quotes on a couple of them; Tyler's current teacher and last years teacher;...and they all got a card as well.

They were loved by everyone.
By the way, it would be really cute to bring this to a party or as a host gift, or to a staff luncheon type thing, with a pizza cutter attached! SOOOOOOO CUTE!

This is the recipe that I found HERE

Recipe makes one Giant Cookie
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (melted and then cooled)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 butterscotch chips (optional)
You could also add nuts, or m&ms, or anything else you wanted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, cream together the sugars and the butter. Add the egg and vanilla and cream again. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Line a large baking pan with foil and press the cookie into about a 9 inch will spread to 12 inches as it bakes.
Bake for 13-16 until the cookie is lightly golden brown. The trick is to NOT overbake.
Let the cookie cool completely on the baking pan so it can have time to stabilize and set up.
Once cool, gently use the foil to lift off of the pan.
