Giant Sugar Cookies are fun to eat when you just NEED a cookie as big as your head! Six inches in diameter, these are delicious, classic, BIG yummy treats!

Some days are like that, right? You just need a cookie as big as your head to make it all right again. Something like a Giant Sugar Cookie, perhaps?  Perhaps.  Yes… I think I would like one right NOW.

I made these jumbo cookies recently as my husband and I were still reeling from the loss of our furry family member, Bailey (our beloved dog), who we lost to cancer two weeks ago. Getting in the kitchen and baking is therapy for me, to be honest! My heart was sad, and I really just wanted to bake something yummy! So I did.

This recipe for giant sugar cookies only makes 6 cookies, but they each come out about 6 inches wide, so trust me when I say, you will only need one.  My husband and I each ate one, then I gave the others away to our 2 sons, one of their girlfriends and one of our friends.

I like to bake, but I LOVE to give goodies to my friends and family even more (I hope you LOVE the giant size… every now and then someone you know might just need a GIANT cookie to help make it all better)!

Here’s How Easy Giant Sugar Cookies Are To Make:

While your oven is preheating, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Once smooth, add egg and mix well, then add other dry ingredients until a soft dough is formed.

Making batter for giant sugar cookies is EASY.

Measure out 1/3 cup of the dough for each cookie (6 total), then roll each one in between your clean hands to form a ball.

Each giant sugar cookie uses 1/3 cup of dough, rolled into ball.

Place the dough balls on two separate cookie sheets (on parchment paper), leaving plenty of space between each one (remember these will end up about 6 inches in diameter, so trust me… leave lots of room in between the cookie dough balls).

Lightly press down each cookie to flatten them out a bit. Lightly sprinkle tops of cookies with coarse sugar.

Time To Bake!

Bake cookies at 350 degrees for about 14-15 minutes. They should be just lightly brown around the edges when done. The cookies will firm up more as they cool.

See? Each cookie is about 6 inches in diameter. THAT is one GIANT sugar cookie!
