Here’s the recipe in case you want to bake one for yourself:

  • 12,200 lbs. of unbleached flour
  • 6,525 lbs. of unsalted butter
  • 6,000 lbs. of dark chocolate chunks
  • 5,000 lbs. of granulated sugar

David Huntley, local land surveyor, took the official measurements of our record-breaking cookie. We then loaded Scott in the crane which placed him in the center of the cookie, while Louis Psihoyos, famed National Geographic photographer, took the crane to its highest point to capture the aerial photo above. They  cut and sold cookie slices in a special commemorative box for $10 each to the waiting crowd, who were eager to get a taste of the World’s Biggest Chocolate Chip cookie.They  raised nearly $20,000 towards the museum fund that day!
