Giant Choc Chip Cookie

Every Saturday afternoon, Paul, Faith and I play Dungeons & Dragons. Of course, Saturday afternoons and Dungeons & Dragons require snacks. I usually make scones or we make popcorn, but I few weeks ago, I decided to make choc chip cookies and I came across this recipe for a giant cookie.

I made a few adjustments as per usual. And it was delicious. So delicious that Ive made it at least half a dozen times since.

Recipe Notes

I have made this cookie non dairy with margarine and with oil. The margarine cookie had the same texture as the butter cookie but the taste wasnt as good. The oil cookie had a dryer texture to the butter cookie but tasted better than the margarine cookie. 

They all tasted good but none were as good as the original butter cookie.
