Chocolate Chip Cookies For Two

Do you ever just wish for one warm, ooey gooey chocolate chip cookie, but don't want to make a whole batch? Well, if that is you then I have the perfect recipe for you! You don't even need a mixer - just a bowl and a strong arm. Or a Ryan. Ryan's are strong! This chocolate chip cookie recipe makes just two chocolate chip cookies. Wait, that's two huge chocolate chip cookies. Like big as your head chocolate chip cookies. Cookies that are perfect for dunking in milk or sandwiching ice cream. Or just eat them straight out of the oven. If you choose to do the latter, just don't burn your tongue.

These two cookies are the perfect chocolate chip cookies - slightly gooey and a little bit crunchy. You know, brown and crunchy around the edges and soft and gooey in the middle. Ya, I went there. This cookie recipe is perfect for when you get that chocolate chip cookie craving, but don't want to have an entire batch temping you on the counter. At least they tempt me. In fact, I'm pretty sure they whisper to me, "eat meeeeeee, eat meeeeee!". Some people say they can resist the extra cookies. If you are one of those people, I don't understand you. Or maybe it's the fact that I wish I had your willpower. Ya, that's probably it. How can you resist a chocolate chip cookie?

start creaming the butter and sugar

who needs a stand mixer when you have a Ryan!

Add the chocolate chips

adding a few extra chocolate chips to the top makes the cookies better. ps. I doubled the recipe to make four cookies.

BIG cookies!

Chocolate Chip Cookies For Two (slightly adapted from Melissa at No. 2 Pencil)

Makes just two very large chocolate chip cookies!

2 tablespoons of butter
2 firmly packed tablespoons of dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
Pinch of kosher salt
¼ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
¼ teaspoon of baking soda
¼ cup of all-purpose flour
3 heaping tablespoons of semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

In a microwave safe bowl, heat butter just until it starts to melt and is softened. Blend softened butter, sugars, salt, and vanilla together by hand. Add egg yolk and stir again. Add baking soda and flour and stir until combined. Then stir in chocolate chips.

Form cookie dough into two balls and place on baking sheet. The cookies will spread during baking, so make sure they are several inches apart. Bake for about 10 (mine took 16-18 minutes!) minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Enjoy!
