Making the Cookie Dough

The goal of this recipe is to be as EASY as possible! It is for those nights when you want a cookie and you need it now. So I had to make sure it could be whipped up in 5 minutes and in one bowl. Here are all the ingredients you need:

  • unsalted butter, melted
  • brown sugar
  • white sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • salt
  • baking soda
  • whisked egg
  • all-purpose flour

My go to butter whenever baking is Challenge Unsalted Butter. It adds a beautiful rich taste that is just a must in any baked good. Their butter is made the old-fashioned way from happy cows at family-owned dairies and you can really taste that difference in these ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies.

Now obivously you know most recipes for cookies call for a whole egg but when you’re only making one cookie, it’s not like you can cut an egg the same way you can divide up one cup of flour. BUT I finally figured out how to do it! Just take one whole egg and whisk it together very well until homogenous. Set aside 1/2 a tablespoon. You can use the remaining egg to make scrambled eggs in the morning!

Start by adding melted butter to a bowl along with brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla extract, salt, baking soda, and a bit of whisked egg. Combine together well until smooth. Then fold in all purpose flour with a rubber spatula until a dough forms.

Finally, I like to add a mix of semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips to the dough. Cover and let it chill for 15 minutes in the fridge.

Baking the Cookie

The secret to chocolate chip cookies is more in the baking than the dough, at least in my opinion! You can have the most perfect dough but if you overbake it, the cookie is no good.

For this single serving cookie, 8 minutes at 350°F was the perfect time for me. Just keep in mind every oven will be different so you might you need a minute less or maybe even a minute more. The cookie should have golden edges while still being soft and almost underdone in the center. The reason for this is that when the cookie is taken out of the oven, it continues cooking on the sheet pan. That’s why it rests for

Variations to Try

For even more flavor, brown the butter on the stove to give the cookies a deeper more nutty flavor. To do this, just add the butter to a pan over medium heat and melt it down. After melting, it will start to bubble. After a few minutes, the milk solids in the butter will turn a golden color. Take it off the heat and now you have brown butter! This step is completely optional.

Instead of chocolate chips, you could make a cookies-n-creme cookie by adding Oreo chunks along with white chocolate chips.

For a winter theme cookie, add white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Have fun with it! You can also in chopped nuts of your choice.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Challenge Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon whisked egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, additional tablespoon as needed

  • flakey sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, add the melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, whisked egg, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt. Combine together until smooth.
  3. Add the all-purpose flour and fold in with a rubber spatula until you have a cookie dough consistency. If the dough is a bit too wet, add 1/2 a tablespoon to 1 tablespoon of flour as needed.
  4. Mix in the milk chocolate and dark chocolate and let the dough rest for 15 minutes in the fridge.
  5. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

  8. Pop in the oven to bake for about 8 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the center is still a bit soft. Do not overbake - the cookies will continue baking out of the oven on the hot pan.
  9. Leave them on the pan for about 10 minutes or until firm before transferring them to a cooling rack to finish cooling and enjoy!
