Recently, I found a recipe I had saved for a “single-serve cookie”. Is this even a thing that people do? I typically make a double batch of chocolate chip cookie dough, so that I’m able to whip up a batch of cookies in 15 minutes, if we’re expecting visitors or workers (roofers, plumber, electrician, the ADT guy… etc). I’d never even considered making a single cookie, but I was intrigued. I was also curious to see if I could make one with a little wine added… because, why not… #amIright?
I have to confess that I was impressed with the final result. It didn’t have quite the same consistency as I’d like for a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but it was certainly easy and tasty. Let me know if you ever decide to try this option. I’d like to add a little scoop of vanilla ice cream, but otherwise, this recipe was one that I’ll definitely keep in my back pocket for time when I just need one cookie. Enjoy!
NOTE: if you don’t want to add wine, just leave it out and increase the vanilla.
1 Tablespoon butter, melted
1 Tablespoon white sugar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla (2 drops)
1/4 teaspoon red wine (2 drops)
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup flour
2 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips (it may sound weird, but I’d actually use less)
- Mix all ingredients together and spoon into a microwave-safe ramekin bowl.
- Microwave 60-90 seconds.
- Top with ice cream or eat straight out of the bowl.
Easy Peasy! Now, you’re never more than 5 minutes from having a fresh chocolate chip cookie… and that’s not a bad thing, right?
