Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie-for 1

I am in heaven.  I found this DELISH recipe on Pinterest (where the recipe pin links to Angela's Adventures, a fun blog you should spend some time visiting)!
Anyway, back to this awesome cookie recipe...
For all those who know me, there are 2 kinds of cookies that I absolutely adore, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip, and your basic soft Chocolate Chip Cookie.  Love them. Sadly, I'm too lazy to make them. I'm seriously lazy.  So, unless a friend takes pity and drops some off to my needy/greedy self, I don't get to indulge in either cookie very often.
NOW I'VE FOUND THE PERFECT ANSWER TO HALF OF MY COOKIE DILEMMA! Here it is...
Unbelievably easy, and honestly very very delicious, this cookie recipe is now an absolute necessity for my sanity and general attitude about everything. -he-he-he

Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for 1
(don't share)
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 Tbsp. white sugar
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 drops vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 egg yolk
1/4 c. flour
2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
  • In a bowl, combine the melted butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and egg yolk.
  • Stir with a fork until well mixed.
  • Add in the flour & salt.  Mix again.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir until they are evenly distributed in the batter.
Spread into a ramekin, shallow bowl, or coffee mug.
Microwave for 40-60 seconds, or until the cookie no longer appears "doughy" in the center (my cookie take 60 seconds, in our 1100 watt oven).
(Don't over cook, because as the cookie cools it will become drier, and not as soft. This happened once, but hey, I had no qualms about eating it, and it was still fabulous.)
Cool slightly and dig in! 



This would be soooo good served still warm with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
~This takes me about 7 minutes to assemble and  "bake". Less time if I don't clean up behind myself! Ha Ha ~

Note:  I haven't tried to make the cookie in a mug, but I'm guessing that the cooking time may need to be increased because the dough is not spread out as thinly as in a ramekin or bowl.

Here's a solution for your other dilemna, the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Here's my favorite, and very lazy, version:

1 box spice cake mix. 1 small can or half a big can pumpkin. chocolate chips to your hearts desire. Throw all into kitchen aide mixer until combined. Spoon onto cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 15-20 min, depending on size of your cookie. (I just test with a toothpick, like a cake.)

Enjoy!
