Elato’s Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Elato’s Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

This giant chocolate chip cookie is crunchy on the outside but soft in the middle, and just delicious served warm from the oven, with a scoop of Elato vanilla ice cream on top – either one great big scoop in the middle of the cookie still in the pan, or in individual servings. 

The cookie is made in one bowl, and baked in a 10 inch (25cm) cast-iron or stainless steel frying pan with a metal handle. If you want to serve it cold, it can be made in a small cake tin lined with paper and removed and sliced for serving once cool. 

It can also be made gluten and/or sugar free or vegan.
