Ever thought of a giant cookie? I have. My greatest attempt was only a giant pancake…….haha. I’m sure you have done that too. Making a giant cookie is always on my mind. My definition of a giant cookie means it has to be much bigger than my face…….*big grin*. Won’t it be a great idea to make for Father’s Day which falls on 16th June this year, that is, this Sunday? Yay….I’m going to have great fun and adventure in my kitchen.

Dr Oetker's baking products

Baking has been so more fun for me lately because of Dr Oetker’s products. They have so many types of decorative stuff. You can easily transform a plain cake, cupcake or cookie into something gorgeous and celebrative. You save a lot of money baking yourself. And it’s very therapeutic too…*big smiles*.

The icing in tubes make writing or making other pattens so simple. My only problem is how to stabilise my hand so that I can writing steadily….haha. I’m not waiting for your answer. I know you are going to say, ‘Practice makes perfect!’ Just what I need….*big grin*. And if you only need egg white, they even have egg white powder. My gosh…I never knew such a thing exist!…haha. See, it’s always ‘Keep Learning Keep Smiling!’ And I still love all those packets of baking powder, baking soda and cream of tartar. They are so handy to use. I even brought them back with me when I went back to Malaysia for vacation!

Father's Day hearted shaped giant chewy cookie

Father's Day heart shaped giant chewy cookie

I started making the cookies since yesterday. Only managed to complete them with all the decoration early this morning. Got up very early to do it. Feel so pleased. The heart shaped one is for the man in the house and the round ones are to share with friends in church. I’m very pleased with myself and I’m sure everyone who get a piece of this lovely cookie will be pleased too. See, cooking and baking is fun. Told you!….*big grin*. You can easily share love around…..*big smiles*.

Right, here’s the recipe of my Giant Chewy Cookie. It’s actually very simple and easy to do. But mind you, this portion of recipe is VERY big if you are only making for your family. Maybe you can make half the portion.

Ingredients A
500g butter (soften to room temperature)
2C light brown sugar
1C granulated sugar
1 & 1/2t salt

Light butter mixture

Put all ingredients A in a cake mixing bowl and beat until light.

Ingredients B
4 eggs (lightly beaten)
3t vanilla essence

Butter and egg mixture

Butter and egg mixture

Add the vanilla essence into the butter mixture above. Pour in 1/2 of the beaten egg and beat. When it’s well combined, beat in the other 1/2.

Ingredients C
5C flour
2t baking soda

Cookie dough

Cookie dough

Sieve the flour and baking soda into the egg and butter mixture above. Mix well into a dough.

Press into moulds and bake at 200 degrees for about 7-10 minutes. Don’t be alarmed if it still feels soft. It will harden slightly as it cools. The time depends on the thickness of the cookie. I made 2 shapes, heart shape and round shape. The heart shaped ones are thinner which I think is the right thickness to sandwich them with chocolate cream. The round ones are a little too thick so I can only put the chocolate cream on top.

The round ones are much bigger than the heart shaped ones. They are about 11 inches across. I use cake rings to make them. Just put them on a baking tray and press the cookie dough into it. Actually a rather thin layer would do as it will rise.

Ingredients D (chocolate filling)
360g double cream
1T sugar
1t butter
720g dark chocolate

Put the cream, butter and sugar into a pot. Bring it to simmer. Turn off heat and break in the chocolate. Leave it for about 15-20 minutes and then stir until well mixed. Leave it to cool for about 30 minutes or so, until thicker, before using it to top the giant cookie or sandwich the cookies. This is a lot of chocolate cream. You can keep in the fridge and use it another time, just double boil to soften, or you can make half a portion.

I think my cookies are slightly over baked. I should have taken it out when it’s paler. Also I need to make them thinner. Will definitely try it again. You can make smaller cookies too which would be good in lunch boxes. But my giant one looks impressive…..*big smiles*…..giving  a good pat on my own back….hehe

This is my Father’s Day baking adventure and achievement. Now how about yours? Do you just go out for a meal, buy something or make something yourself? Please share. You know I will be thrilled to know. My dad is too far away so I will just give him a call. Miss him!

The weather looks beautiful today….very sunny……yay. I REALLY REALLY LOVE Aberdeen when the weather is SO nice! It’s going to be another busy day but at least it’s much easier to smile when it’s sunny and warm outside……..*big grin*. Hope it’s not too hot or too cold on your side.

Til then, see you in my next post.

That looks like those Scottish shortbread - big piece and you break off the wedges to eat.

There is a very Pleasant Father in your own home.. always smiling and looking very boyish! hahaha.. Happy Father’s Day to all the men! As for me over here, no celebration.. no fathers around except our Heavenly Father! :) Oh by the way, Aaron might be going to Aberdeen to enjoy the nice weather.. if all is fine, he will be there in July.. :)

What a lucky man your husband is! Not only does he get one huge cookie, but he gets another one to share with his friends? Love those heart shaped tins, btw. Not many people know this, but I have a slight heart obsession. Haha. Had a good laugh when I read you don’t consider a cookie big unless it’s bigger than your face. Hahaha! You are just too cute!!! Love chewy cookies! Hope your husband will enjoy a happy Father’s Day. Wonder why Father’s Day is the same as here, but not Mother’s Day. Weird. Hope you both have a very lovely weekend. Maybe another stroll down the riverside eating ice cream? ;) Haha.

Jeannie  on June 15th, 2013

No Dr. Oetker products here :( Your cookies look great! Bet your friends and family will enjoy them very much!:)

@somewhere in singapore - Thanks very much, Sharon! Always love to hear from you :D Hope you have a great weekend, too!

@suituapui - Scottish shortbread is not chewy. Next time I must try with Scottish shortbread. Would be fun when many people share 1 big piece of cookie :D

@claire - Oh…..haha…what an interesting description! :D Aaron coming? That’s wonderful. I hope you can follow along again! Would be more fun as the weather is getting much warmer now. You probably won’t want to come into the house but just to play and have fun outdoor! Maybe for food only….haha. May you and your family be richly blessed as you remember Father’s Day and the love of our Heavenly Father! You are such an inspiration after knowing your story!

@Mistletoe - Not too sure if he is a lucky man. Tomorrow he will know. He gets lots to eat if he is nice to me :D Aha….now I know your little secret! I think I should draw you a LOT of hearts….hehe. Ice cream again? This time I will eat in a heated room….haha

@Angie@Angie’s Recipes - Thanks very much, Angie! :D

@Jeannie - Oh really? I thought it’s available there. Hope one day you can find it there. There are lots of baking products! Really convenient to use. I’m going to have more fun baking :D
