A product that would make most kids in the world drool, the world’s biggest cookie, was made by the Immaculate Baking Company located in Flat Rock, North Carolina, United States on May 17, 2003.
This chocolate chip cookie measured a whopping 101 feet (30.7 meters) in diameter, covered the area of 8,120 square feet (754 square meters) and weighted 40,000 pounds (18,000 kg).
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
3,370 lbs. of dark brown sugar
30,000 whole eggs
184 lbs. of salt
79 lbs. baking Soda
10 gallons of pure vanilla
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!
