My First Baking Post!


In my last post (here) i included a picture of a giant cookie that i had made recently and mentioned in a comment that i was considering writing a few baking posts to see how they went so since this is something i make quite a lot i figured i would write up the recipe! 


I think i originally made this for the first time about a year ago because of a picture i had seen on pinterest but since then i have lost the original recipe and adapted what i think it was so here is what i use:
( I prefer to measure in cups because i find it a lost faster and easier to remember than measurements!)




2 & 1/2 Cups of plain flour
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Salt
1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
Any toppings you want this time i used
1 Large bag M&Ms
1 bag of milk choc chips
1/2 bag of white choc chips
2 Large spoonfulls of Marshmallow Fluff ( Pictured later)

You can use any toppings you want personally i prefer the chocolate M&Ms but there were no large bags in the shop so i settled on these but smarties, marshmallows, nuts, fruit anything works!

1) Preheat your over to about 180-200 Degrees and grease a baking tin/tray/sheet whatever you want to use. I actually use a pie tin because i've found its the perfect size but i have also tried this on a baking tray and it works the same!


2) Sieve together your dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour,baking powder & salt) and mix with a metal spoon.
3) In a seprate bowl cream together your butter and sugar adding the eggs and vanilla, this will make a very liquidy mixture


4) You then want to combine these two bowls together i like to add the dry ingredients a little at a time to make sure everything combines well. This will form your cookie dough.
5) To the dough add whatever toppings/fillings you want for your cookie and mix together
6) Spoon the mixture into your pie tin/ baking tray/ cake tin whatever your using! 


7) Smooth out your mixture and place on the middle shelf of your pre heated oven for half an hour
8) After half an hour you want to take the cookie from the oven and let it cool for a good fifteen minutes any earlier and it will be too gooey to slice! (This is the hardest part i hate waiting!!)


Ta da! one giant cookie and its really simple (and yummy)! All my family love when i make this, it never lasts very long though!

Let me know if you liked this sort of post and if i should do a few more!

Much Love,
Abby xx
