Everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie every now and then, but most recipes bake anywhere between 24-48 cookies, and since most of us are still at home in quarantine with our families, having a few dozen chocolate chip cookies just lying around isn’t a very healthy alternative to a small craving. So, I, Alli Himler, have taken the liberty in searching for and finding a recipe for 2 chocolate chip cookies. I decided to try a recipe found at www.number-2-pencil.com with the title, Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookies.

 

Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. At this time, place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and set aside. 

 

Gather all ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter (mostly melted)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda 
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 3 heaping tablespoons chocolate chips

In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. 

 

Add the egg yolk to the combination.

 

Add the baking soda and mix. 

 

Add flour and mix.

 

The dough should look like this!

 

Add in your chocolate chips and mix ( size of the chips doesn’t matter).

 

Separate the dough into two separate lumps on the parchment paper.

 

Bake for 10-15 minutes. It is a good idea to keep a close eye on the oven and make sure the middle of the cookies begin to brown.

 

The cookies should turn out like this!

 

After making this recipe, I discovered that the time in the oven should be monitored, as I needed to make some adjustments to help them bake completely. This recipe is super simple and I highly recommend baking these cookies if you’re in the mood for a chocolate chip cookie, but don’t want a ton sitting around the house!
