Wee Bit of Chocolate Sweetness

Hello World!

Chocolate is the world’s most perfect food!  That is my story, and I’m sticking to it.  Since this is a fact, when one gets the “I must have chocolate NOW desire,” there is nothing to be done but have some chocolate.  The conundrum is when one knows that if she buys a bag of chocolate chip cookies or bakes a batch, even half a batch, she will be made to eat all of the cookies in short order by forces beyond her control.  What is one to do?

A short time ago, I remember seeing briefly some post or recipe or blog or article – not sure what now – of someone making a cookie for one.  I did a quick web search and, not finding a recipe of such that met with my pantry stores and preferred cooking method, I decided to create my own recipe.

Deep-dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One (or two if you are inclined to share)

Pre-heat oven toe 350 degrees (I don’t like “baked” foods cooked in a microwave)

  • Between one and two tablespoons of melted butter (Mine was salted, and I am not sure of the exact amount as I cut the butter off of a solid block of butter)
  • About 1 1/2 tablespoons each of granulated sugar and brown sugar
  • A few drops of real vanilla flavoring
  • Mostly the yolk from a medium size egg

Mix the above ingredients together in a small, oven-safe cooking bowl (like Pyrex).  Add the following and stir thoroughly.

  • 5 tablespoons of self-rising flour
  • a palm full of chocolate chips
  • a few chopped nuts, if desired

Once mixed well, clean off the upper sides of the bowl with a damp paper towel, and put the bowl into the oven.  Cook for about 2o minutes (depth of bowl dictates time) or until done and lightly brown on top.
