Giant Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

Two weeks ago, my sister turned 25.

To celebrate her birthday, my family & I surprised her with a giant pumpkin cookie – topped with dark chocolate frosting {I had to try a small cookie just to make sure it was safe.  It was}. 

My sister was super surprised that we made this giant cookie and brought it to the pool where she was coaching her team of synchronized swimmers!

The cookie was fabulous; worked wonderfully as a large cookie.  The girls at the pool loved the cookie too.
