There are times when all I ever want is a cookie but going through all that pain and baking a batch of 20 just so I can eat 1 doesn’t sound like the best idea. But abandoning the idea of dessert is not my thing, so if I want it, I get creative and I did, with this Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie For One.
A little while back I saw a deep dish cookie on Pinterest somewhere, I didn’t pin the recipe so I could never find it but I decided to give it a shot anyway. What I baked was probably the worst cookie I’ve ever made, I mean it looked good but was the bitter -est (is that a word?) cookie ever. I figured I added excess baking powder so I decided to give it another shot with reduced baking powder. And guess what? In the second attempt I FORGOT to put the baking powder. I mean why is the baking powder playing games? I only want a decent cookies. Give it to me already! The third attempt didn’t happen for days, but when it did I got it right and made this beauty! Only 25 minutes and I had my dessert ready! Finally!
This warm cookie with a crispy top and melted chocolate bits all over is just what you need on lazy day and is PERFECT with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Try this simple recipe and bake this eggless dessert for one.
- • Softened Butter, 1 tablespoon
- • Sugar, 1 ½ tablespoons (I used 1 tbsp caster + ½ tbsp dark brown sugar)
- • Vanilla Essence, ½ teaspoon
- • All Purpose Flour (maida), 3 ½ tablespoons
- • Baking Powder, ¼ teaspoon
- • Milk, 1 tablespoon
- • Chocolate Chips, a handful
- Preheat your oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes.
- In a bowl whisk butter and sugar until properly combined. This should take about a minute or two. The mixture will become a little fluffy and lighter in colour. Add in the vanilla essence and mixed.
- Finally add in the flour, baking powder and milk to form a soft dough. Remember, the dough shouldn't be sticky or too wet. It should form a nice ball and come off the edges of your bowl completely. If it's sticky add a couple teaspoons of flour. Don;t add too much because too much could dry out your final cookie.
- Add in the chocolate chips and mix them well.
- Transfer this cookie dough to a ramekin and spread it evenly. Sprinkle some chocolate chips on the top and bake for 15 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
- Let the cookie cool slightly for about 10 minutes. Top it with some vanilla ice cream once cool and ENJOY!
