Weekend Baking 1.9

This weekend we're headed out of town (only about an hour out of town, actually) to visit Aaron's grandparents and extended family for Easter. We usually go on Saturday night so that we can attend Easter services with his grandma and grandpa, but seeing as how I can barely sleep comfortably in my own bed, he's decided not to try to make me sleep in a strange bed and then have to spend the day interacting with his whole family. Nice guy; much nicer than I am, because I make him do just that about once a year, and my family is a heck of a lot bigger, louder, and more obnoxious than his.

Anyway, the big event for the day other than going to church is what his grandma calls "Easter Brunch", but what is actually more like "Late Easter Dinner". I always bake something to take, and I was having a hard time deciding what exactly I should take this year. Usually I bake a coffee cake to eat Easter morning, so that's definitely out. I kept pondering what to take until I was driving myself batty, until I ran across a recipe for Carrot Cake at The Pioneer Woman Cooks.

Now, I usually don't take something I've never made before, so I was a bit worried. Then I realized that everything I've ever made from Ree's site has been absolutely delicious, so really I don't have much to worry about. I'm going to make it in bundt form to make it look a bit fancier (that and I'm still a little wary of my pyrex pans, what with the whole explosion incident and all), and I am really looking forward to trying it.

And now for something almost completely different: I have a question for all of you. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, my boss is leaving our place of employment. We're doing a going away lunch for her, and even though she told us not to do anything special, I want to bake something for the occasion. I bake a lot for the people at work, and my boss especially loves it when I bring things in. Since she's leaving this will be, most likely, the last time I bake for her, so I can't not bake, right?

Anyway, I've decided to bake a giant chocolate chip cookie, but I'm not sure where to find a really good recipe. So here's where you all come in. Do you have a good giant chocolate chip cookie recipe, or know where to find one? Please, share or point me in the right direction! I want to make sure that her last homemade treat from me is a great one.

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but awhile ago RA shared a recipe for giant cookies and it's pretty delicious: http://definitelyra.com/2007/08/24/neighborly/
