This Chocolate Chip Cookie for One is the perfect individual dessert when you’re craving something sweet and don’t want to make a huge batch of cookies!
When your sweet tooth kicks in, this Chocolate Chip Cookie for One recipe is a lifesaver!
Being a new mom, I’m a little short on time (parents, I know you can relate!). And after hectic days, I really find myself in need of some indulgence.
A big thank you to Nellie’s Free Range eggs for helping bring this post to life. This is the first in a four-part series of blog posts to promote timeless recipes.
I am very grateful for @nelliesfreerange support and company mission and hope you enjoy the upcoming content!
When it comes to sweet treats, I’m a sucker for baked goods, especially cookies. But actually taking the time to prepare them—while making a mess in my kitchen—can be a pain.
Thankfully, this deep-dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One is the best of both worlds!
Five minutes of prep and 20 hands-off minutes in the oven are all you need for an ooey, gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie for One.
This is a simple recipe made with a handful of kitchen staples, and it’s so easy, your kids can help.
Just don’t forget that if they do, you’ll have to share.
And as delicious as this dessert is, there are a few tricks to making your deep-dish cookie extra tasty.
How To Make It:
Begin by preheating the oven to 350F and spraying an 8-oz. ramekin with cooking spray.
Then, mix together either softened or melted butter with light brown sugar in a small bowl.
Next, add in the egg yolk and vanilla extract.
Then add in your flour, baking soda, and salt.
And finally, the chocolate chips!
See, wasn’t that quick and easy? Now transfer your dough to the prepared ramekin and bake for about 20 minutes!
High-quality ingredients are always key, and when it comes to the egg, fresh is definitely best!
I admit, before switching brands, I didn’t think there was much difference between one egg brand and another.
But then I switched to Nellie’s Free Range eggs, and it totally changed my mind.
Compared to lower-quality eggs, the shells are thicker, the yolks are richer, and they’re deeper in color—how fresh yolks should be.
Even better, these eggs are Certified Humane free range, meaning that Nellie’s hens have room to roam and are treated with care.
It’s no wonder they taste better!
Needless to say, I use a Nellie’s Free Range egg whenever I make this deep-dish cookie. I figure because the recipe only calls for one yolk, it better be a good one!
I love this Chocolate Chip Cookie for One because I can quickly mix it up before Evie’s bedtime.
Then I pop it in the oven, and Matt and I do our 20-minute routine to get her to sleep.
My late-night treat bakes while I’m reading to her. Then when she’s asleep, I get to enjoy a little “me” time.
Sometimes I even put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and share with Matt …but only when I’m feeling generous. 😉
Yep, chocolate chip cookies are a timeless recipe, but this Chocolate Chip Cookie for One is timeless. This is especially convenient for busy parents!
Try making it tonight, and savor some “me” time, too!
