There's nothing better than a chocolate chip cookie — unless it's a very large one! Home economist Susan Van Hezewijk created this cookie for kids to bring along to class parties or to give as a gift. It's quick to make, uses only one bowl and will keep youngsters busy writing the message or decorating with purchased icing.
