Many of us are stuck at home due to the smartly implemented stay at home orders, which have unfortunately put many many people temporarily out of work. This really sucks, but here’s a little bit of enjoyment: make yourself (or your significant other) one of these cookies for one.
These are easy to make, and because there are so few ingredients, chances are you could go to the fridge and cupboard and find everything you need. It will still be good, even without the chocolate.
This Food & Wine recipe calls for cooking these in a toaster oven, but cooking it in a regular oven works just fine. Just turn on the convection, if you have it, and move the oven rack to the top-most setting, so heat reflects off the top of the oven down onto the cookie.
These are best enjoyed warm. And with ice cream, if you have it.
Stay safe and healthy.
What you’ll need:
- 1T unsalted butter
- 1T light brown sugar, packed
- 1t granulated sugar
- 0.125t (1/8t) vanilla extract
- 2T all-purpose flour
- 1.5T chocolate chunks or chips
What to do:
Heat your oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees.
In a small, microwave-safe bowl, warm the butter until soft, but not melted. With a fork, mix in the two sugars, the vanilla and a pinch of salt.
Mix in the flour, then the chocolate chunks or chips. Mix it–you’ll probably have to use your hands–and shape it into a cookie and place on a small piece of parchment paper.
Transfer the cookie to the toaster-oven tray or a small baking sheet (for the oven), and bake for 13-15 minutes.
Let it cool slightly before serving (with ice cream!).
