As an online business I find describing a cookie rather hard. Displaying a cookie so a person understands that it's bigger than a normal size cookie - okay whats normal size you ask? Recipes have certain standards.
Normal size cookies are to me about 1 1/2" to 3" inches. This would cover say a Swedish Tea Cake (round) to a chocolate chip cookie (flat) Standard drop by teaspoon on to cookie sheet.
Big size cookies to me go 2 1/2" to 4". Standard drop by tablespoon/two tablespoons onto cookie sheet.
Then monster size cookies anything over 4". Most of my monster cookies are about 5"-6" inches. Standard drop by ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup onto cookie sheet.
Then each size will also vary a tad in cooking time.
Bar cookies also have different sizes.
Just about any baked good can come in all shapes and sizes. Cakes, candy, pastries, bread now days can come in a single serving size to a size that 30 folks can enjoy at one time.
Personally; I love baking monster cookies. Two baking pans, 20 minutes of prep, just a little over 30 minutes of cooking time, and then I'm done for the day with lots of time left to read and explore more recipes.
Then dunk a cookie in milk as a special treat after dinner for several nights.
