    I make these ALL THE TIME! I am no good at making perfectly round cookies, so I put the batter into 2 round 8" or 9" cake pans. They come out perfectly round! They are even really good if you put them in the freezer (I forget how I figured this out), so next time we have a birthday at my house I am going to cook the two cookies, freeze them, put a layer of vanilla ice cream between them, decorate the top with chocolate icing and ta-dah! I will have a giant ice-cream cookie sandwitch cake! Someone else should try it (since I do not have another birthday for 6 months) and let me know how it goes! When done baking I flip them unside down on a cooling rack and then flip them back over on another so they are right side up. The presentation is great because, as I said earlier, they are perfectly round. You can also half the recipie if you only need one giant cookie... or make two and give one to a neighbor! Have fun!  -  21 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    GREAT RECIPE!!! I dont understand what people are talking about as far as spillage goes. I have made this recipe 4 times and all times this cookie came out wonderful!!! maybe this tip will help - I made the dough, used a 16inch pizza pan from walmart ($4) and lined the bottom with parchment paper - then press the dough into a ball in the center - place parchment paper on top and press slightly with my hands into a circle - then i used my pampered chef rolling pin and simply rolled into a perfect circle - about 1 inch from edges. i peeled off the parchment like a dream and baked - no spillage at all - baked great, tasted great - looked professional!! thanks!!!  -  03 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    With the recommendations from other reviewers, the giant cookie was a BIG sucess at my nephew's B-Day party! I only used the 2 cups of flour and 1/2 tsp. salt recommended, and a little extra vanilla. Everyone thought the cookie was moist and delicious! They also thought the cookie was made by the Great American Cookies company. I imitated the frosting decoration they use on their giant cookies (see attached photo).  -  19 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
