Chocolate Chip Cookie (The Single Cookie)




About: Ask me questions. I know the answers.

Have you ever been packing snacks for an outing and thought to yourself, "I really want to pack a cookie, but I don't want to make a whole batch."? Or, "I really want to pack a cookie, but I haven't the time to make 69 of them, like the recipe calls for"?
Well, here's the solution.

One cookie at a time.

Now, you may be wondering why I put this in the pocket-sized group. I mean, who in their right mind puts a cookie in their pocket? It's not the cookie that goes in your pocket, it's the dough! This recipe has no eggs in it, so you can put it in a zip lock bag and carry it around until you find a place to bake it.
A word of caution though... I have not personally tried it, but I'm thinking that airlines would frown upon this idea if you are wanting to transport your unbaked cookie cross-country. Unlabeled blobs of dough can look quite suspicious, if you know what I mean.

All right then, here we go.


Step 1: Ingredients You Will Need

For this cookie you will need:
-1 Tbsp. White granulated sugar
-1 Tbsp. Brown sugar
-1 Tbsp. Butter
-1-2 Tbsp. Chocolate chips
-1 Tbsp. Water
-1/8 tsp. Vanilla
-Pinch of salt
-Pinch of baking soda
-1/4 Cup Flour + 1 Tbsp. Flour

Step 2: Mix It Up

Mix all of the ingredients in a cereal bowl with a fork.

(That was easy, eh?)

Step 3: Bake It!

You have two options here: Bake one largish cookie, or split it up and make a few smaller ones. Personally I like to make one large one, so I'm not obligated to share, but that's just me.

Bake at 350 degrees, for 12-13 minutes.

I bake on parchment paper. Parchment paper is great for baking cookies because you can slide the entire sheet of cookies off of the hot pan, no scooping them off. This allows you to get softer cookies. Some people like their cookies very crunchy, though, in which case you don't need to bother with parchment paper.

Also, if you bake one large cookie, it's wise to mush it down a bit before you bake it, rather than a large ball of dough. It will bake more evenly this way.

Step 4: Enjoy!

Have fun eating your cookie! (or cookies, if you made two)

Step 5: The Pocket-sized Part

Now, like I said in the intro, you can save this dough for a while without worrying.

I put mine in a sandwich bag, but a produce bag would work just as well, maybe better because you can tie it shut.

Now it fits in my pocket, ready to be baked when I feel like eating it. (Or when I have access to an oven next...)

    Do we have to add that much flour? That's because 5 table spoons seems a lot for one cookie, and makes it seem very large. Does anybody recommend a smaller amount to fit the amount of the other ingredients, if so Thank You!

    This is the greatest recipe! I used baking powder instead of baking soda, so my cookies were a lot smaller, and much more delicious! Also I added walnuts. If I want a dozen cookies I just times the ingredients by twelve. Thank you for posting this!

    Best cookies I ever tasted. Try this method, you'll be happy you did
    I just made a batch the second time, partially mixed by hand then stuck them in the blender for a short period until it stopped blending and added another tbsp choc chips(3tbls all together) then mixed by hand again until dough was ready.
    I divided it into 5 balls and squashed them flat, cooked at 350f for 13 min, Wow the best cookies I've ever tasted. the cookies turned out darker because of the blender(magic bullet).

    I messed it up... I added like 1/2 talblespoon of vanilla! This is why I get my mom to cook..I just poured it wrong and now it tastes almost bitter (oh yeah, I'm eating the dough raw)

    This cookie was definitely tasty, but the texture just didn't do it for me. It could have been the fact that my flour was old. I still loved the recipe though, and plan to mess around with it a bit to make something perfect for me. Thanks for sharing!

    So happy I found this recipe! I made this last night, but instead of using chocolate chips (didn't have any) I added 3-5 crushed almonds, added some cinnamon and rolled the dough (made 2 cookies) in powdered sugar :) It was delicious!

    Eating one as I type this! This seems to be a great quick recipe for a small serving, just enough to hit one's cookie fix and go on with your day. I was able to shape 3 smaller ones from this recipe, and the best part is I baked these cookies in my TOASTER OVEN without having to preheat my big ol' oven first! Nice! Thank you for posting!

     tried microwave.

    6/10 - Still tasted amazing

    What I'd do differently: Take it out after 20. It still had its shape. Might had suffered taste wise thoguh.
