One giant snickerdoodle cookie is guaranteed to curb any cookie craving you might have. It’s six inches big and there is enough to share, if you want.
I have made more than my share of Snickerdoodle cookies over the years. It was the favorite cookie of one of my son’s and his group of friends and there was a always a batch or two coming out of the oven when they were hanging out at our house.
I no longer have groups of teenagers hanging out eating cookies at my house but I still enjoy a sugary cinnamon Snickerdoodle now and then.
That’s where this giant snickerdoodle cookie recipe comes in handy.
When that cookie craving hits I don’t want two dozen cookies hanging around. My self control is somewhat lacking. Being able to make one giant, single serve cookie has been life changing!! Within about 20 minutes I can have a fresh baked cookie, right out of the oven that is the perfect amount for myself and enough to share with Jim.
Sometimes I make it and hide half for later, please don’t tell my husband.

How to Make a Giant Cookie
- Cream together butter and sugars.
- Stir in 1 Tbsp beaten egg. Use the instructions in this post to freeze the remaining egg for later.
- Add in extract. I will use either vanilla or almond.
- Mix in dry ingredients.
- Form dough into a ball and roll into cinnamon sugar.
- Press dough into a 4 inch round disc.
- Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet in a 350 degree F oven for 13-14 minutes.
Cookie will be golden brown around edges and soft in the middle.
Can I Make Two Cookies Instead of One?
One cookie measures six inches across and you can definitely divide the dough in half and make two cookies if you prefer.
