Craving a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie but don’t want an entire batch of cookies tempting you? Or maybe you want a cookie but don’t really feel like baking – OR, heaven forbid – you don’t LIKE to bake!! (it’s tough for me to imagine that one, lol.)
This is the answer. This is all you need to satisfy that craving. In fact, if you eat it warm with a mini-scoop of vanilla ice cream, you may decide this is your new favorite recipe!! I am a cookie lover and will tell you the truth. . . . . . Of course a big batch of cookies baked in the oven is going to rate higher on my scale of 1 – 10. . . . . but making just one cookie is pretty cool and it’s a quick, delicious treat!
Here is all you need:
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter (if you use salted butter, leave out the salt listed below)
1 Tablespoon white sugar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt (delete if using salted butter)
1 egg yolk
3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons chocolate chips (I love the milk chocolate!)
Microwave butter in a small microwave-safe dish until melted – about 30 seconds. With a spoon, mix in sugars, vanilla extract and salt until well-combined. Add egg yolk and mix well. Mix in flour. Fold in chocolate chips.
Place cookie dough in the center of a small plate. Microwave on high for 60 seconds. Serve warm, topped with vanilla ice cream. YUM!
