I think any cookie recipe works as long as you double it if you have to.. Hope this helps..

Just be sure not to over bake it or it will be rock hard. (Ask me how I know... icon_mad.gif ) When it *just* starts to brown, take it out.

Another thing that's nice is to bake it in a cake pan so you get a perfectly round cookie....that way too you can just smoosh the dough in and don't really have to worry if it's perfectly even because if it spreads it can only go so far!

Making the cookie in a pizza pan works well too.

I've baked them in pie pans before and I was too afraid of burning it or making it hard, so I turned down the temp and checked it often.

No special recipe is required.

Good Luck!

If you decide to use a pizza pan, leave at least 1 inch room on the edges for the dough to expand... if you don't sometimes the edges spill over and burn.

I did this last weekend, and I learned three things:

1) definitely make it in a cake pan. No worries about spillage or spreading too thin.

2) any cookie recipe will work. I used the duncan hines cookie mix in the bag. You can get them for 99 cents. It took two bags for a 10" cake pan.

3) As momsandraven said, take it out when it JUST turns brown. I also learned this the hard way. Had to make three cookies before I got it right!

Good luck!

Have I got a great Giant Cookie recipe for you! It has the texture and consistency of the Giant Cookies you would get at a retail establishment and is SO incredibly easy to make. It's made with a white cake mix so if you wanted to change the flavor (say to chocolate, chocolate chip) then you'd just use a chocolate cake mix. I've had fun adding things like M&M's or Reese's Pieces (so yummy in the chocolate, chocolate chip cookie) . . . I just don't add as many chocolate chips if I'm adding candy. Here is the recipe:

1 white cake mix
2 eggs
1 stick of butter (softened)
1 t. vanilla
1 bag of chocolate chips

Mix together, pat onto lightly greased pizza pan (I've used disposable ones for cookies that I'm giving away). Bake 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes.

**if dough is too thick, you can add a few drops of water to thin (but I've made this dozens of times and have NEVER needed to do this so I'd recommend just following the recipe).

Enjoy!

. . . one more thing. This cookie recipe does not tend to overspread as previous messages warned about when you are using chocolate chip cookie dough. I've always flattened it onto the pizza pan pretty much right up to the edge. It does even out when it cooks and you end up with a pretty uniform edge but I've never once had an issue with overflowing the edges. It's pretty much an easy, tasty, almost foolproof recipe!
