XXL Buttery Soft Sugar Cookie.

XXL Buttery Soft Sugar Cookie

The only thing better than a cookie is a GIANT cookie.  Like, practically-the-size-of-my-head cookie. A big, soft, fluffy sugar cookie stuffed with sprinkles.  A TON of sprinkles.

This XXL cookie is so simple.  Seriously!  Just throw reduced amounts of sugar cookie ingredients into a small bowl, stir, throw in the sprinkles, bake and BOOM!  You’ve got yourself a cookie big enough to share.  Well, maybe.  I certainly did not share mine……..

What I love *most* about this particular cookie is that it is SO soft.  You know those rock hard sugar cookies you practically have to break your teeth to bite into?  Those are the worst, right?! 

This cookie literally melts in your mouth.  It’s fluffy, soft, sweet, thick, chewy, and buttery… pretty much all of my cookie requirements.

Print Recipe

Makes 1 large cookie, perfect for sharing. Or not!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp beaten egg (crack the egg, beat it, and use 2 tbsp)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray or use a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir the butter and sugar together until creamed. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
  3. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, cream of tartar, and sprinkles until just combined. Do NOT overmix.
  4. Place the dough in the center of the prepared cookie sheet into a tall ball (see picture above). Bake for 14-16 minutes until the edges are browned. The center may appear undone but that's what you want. It will firm up. Allow to cool completely ON the baking sheet. Enjoy!

    Thank you for all the awesome recipes. I just made your blue berry French toast casserole which was to die for! All your recipes are dependable, soft, chewy, and simply delicious! I noticed your mixing bowels in this giant cookie recipe. Can you share where you got them?

    I made this for my mom’s birthday a couple days ago, and she loved it! She didn’t like the sprinkles in it (sometimes I just can’t understand her) but she said that she loved the flavour and texture. I tried some of the dough beforehand and it was delicious. I usually never bake with butter, so I never get to have cookie dough, but this satisfied my craving. (To be honest, I probably ate a quarter of the dough which was why the cookie was so small…but my mom doesn’t need to know that). This is an amazing blog with amazing recipes and the most fantabulous cookies recipes that I’ve ever come across. i can’t wait to see what other recipes you have coming! Have a nice day/night! 🙂

    Hi Sally I want a simple but big sugar cookie. Is it okay to leave the sprinkles and cream of tartar out.
