Big Top Cookie - "Does it Work?"

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Have you ever wanted your favorite cookie to be, well, bigger?  The Big Top Cookie Bake Set may be the answer to your wish, if it works.  The kit comes with two giant red silicone baking molds, an insert for designs, an idea book, and a scribbler for decorating.

In the fast and easy idea guide, I find a bunch of different suggestions from an oatmeal cream cookie to an ice cream cookie sandwich, as well as different styles of cakes.  For this test, we keep it basic.  We're going with the old fashioned chocolate sandwich cookie.

After the molds get a soap and water bath and fully dry, I place them on separate cookie sheets and hit them with cooking spray.  Now, I mix cocoa powder with premade sugar cookie dough.  This took some muscle to mix together.  I separate the dough into two balls, pressing them each into the molds spreading evenly to the sides.

Now they cook in a 350° oven for 20-30 minutes.  A toothpick test assures we're fully baked after only 20 minutes.  I place the giant cookies in the fridge to cool on wire racks.  This ensures the cookies don't break when releasing from the molds.

I allow 40 minutes of cooling before peeling back the molds to extract the cookies.  They come out easily, but with such a large cookie it's tough to support the weight without cracking.

I assemble the pieces with the cream filling in the middle.  Just like that, I have a larger than life chocolate cookie sandwich!  Time for a taste test!

Jamie Holubik says, "It's really good, a little bit cakey and I like it."

"It's pretty good, but just like an Oreo you need milk with it," adds Samuel King.

It passes the taste test, but the cookie crumbles as I make my cuts.  The molds are also a bit tough to clean.  Otherwise, a room full of smiles means the Big Top Cookie gets a YES for this week's "Does it Work?" test.

The Big Top Cookie Bake Set cost us only $5 at a local retailer.
