Pan Banging Chocolate Chip Cookies- Giant chocolate chip cookies that are crispy, thin and filled with chocolate chunks. Their unique look comes from literally banging your pan in the oven while they bake!
Hi Friends! I made gigantic chocolate chip cookies this week! Let’s check them out ↓ ↓
The Ingredients List:
- Flour + Salt + Baking soda
- Egg yolk
- Brown sugar
- Chocolate bar
Chocolate: Do not use chocolate chips for this recipe. They will not work properly. Use an 8 oz semi sweet chocolate bar that is broken into pieces.
- Yes. While they are baking, you literally bang the pan down on to the oven rack every couple of minutes.
- The banging gives the cookies their thin and crispy texture. Each time the cookies start to puff up, bang that pan and flatten them out.
How to Make:
- First, make your cookie dough. Then, line your baking sheets with foil, dull side up.
- Scoop about 1/3 cup of dough ( yes, 1/3 cup!) and roll it into a ball. Place on a baking sheet. Only bake 3 or 4 cookies on one sheet. These spread alot.
- Place those cookie balls in the freezer for 15 minutes and preheat your oven.
- Bake them for 10 minutes. Now, time to start banging your pan.
- Lift your cookie sheet up about 4 inches, then, gently let it fall on to the oven rack. Do this twice.
- Continue baking for an additional 15-18 minutes, while banging the pan twice every two minutes.
- Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes after removing them from the oven. Then, cool completely on a wire rack.
