Perfect Serving Chocolate Chip Cookies

About a month ago when I was sick at home, I spent a while looking through blogs and stumbled across this AMAZING recipe from Melissa at No. 2 Pencil. I was craving chocolate chip cookies but didn't want to make a huge batch, partially so I didn't eat them all. This recipe is genius because it only makes two big cookies...yep, just two. The cookies are perfectly chewy and crunchy and I threw in a few too many chocolate chips so they were a bit richer. This is definitely one to add to the recipe book or Pinterest board...I've already made it three times this month!

Here's what you'll need:

2 tablespoons of butter
2 firmly packed tablespoons of dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
Pinch of kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 egg yolk – discard or set aside egg white for a different use
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
3 heaping tablespoons of semisweet chocolate chips

First, preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a microwave safe bowl, heat butter just until it starts to melt and is softened. Blend softened butter, sugars, salt, and vanilla together by hand. Add egg yolk and stir again. Add baking soda and flour and stir until combined. Then stir in chocolate chips.

Form the cookie dough into two balls and place on baking sheet. The cookies will spread during baking, so make sure they are several inches apart. Bake for about 8 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
Remove baking sheet from oven and give the baking sheet a firm, but careful bang on the counter top. This will deflate the cookie and give it a perfect wrinkly appearance.

  1. Definitely trying these :), I make 'single serving' brownies all of the time with a little mix and water! Sometimes you just need a bite.

    1. Oooh single serving brownies sound delish! Would love to see the recipe! x
