Giant Chocolate Chip cookie

If you ask me what is my least favorite goodie to bake, I would tell you pie. That is because nobody likes pies at home. Next one is cookies not because people don't like them (in fact they love cookies), but because of scooping the dough into small portions and baking in batches. That is one of the reasons why I prefer to bake bar cookies more than regular drop cookies or rolled cookies. You can bake about four pans of cookies at one shot which can feed a lot of people. When I saw this recipe of  giant chocolate chip cookie which is baked as one big cookie and then cut into wedges, I couldn't resist the urge of baking it. So, here it is. They make huge portions, so next time, I would pat them into a 8" square pan and make 16 cookies out of this. Also, do not over bake them. They get dry since there is not too much fat in them.
One Year Back - Cardamom Biscotti, Italian Supermarket Bread
Two Years Back - Greek Rice
Three Years Back -  Yam and Apple Kofta Curry
Adapted from - here.
Oil - 1/3 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1 large
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Whole Wheat flour - 3/4 cup
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Mini Chocolate Chips - 1/2 cup

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, whisk together both flours, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, mix egg, oil and sugar with a strong wooden spoon. Add vanilla extract and mix. Now add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine. It will be a bit crumbly dough. Stir in chocolate chips. With your hands, Scoop out the dough and place it on the parchment paper. Flatten it to a make a  9"  - 10" circle. Even though the dough looked crumbly while mixing, it will come together and stay together. Place in the oven and bake for 22 - 26 minutes or until pale golden on the top. Remove from the oven and let cool on the cooling rack for 3 - 4 minutes. Then cut them into wedges but don't separate them. Let it cool more before serving. If you forget to cut them when they are warm, it will get crumbly when cut.

You could bake it by patting into a pan of 8" square to get small sized more number of cookies.
