Chocolate Chip Cookie for One

I get home from rehearsal late at night, tired but wired, and want a little nosh to soothe me into restfulness, enough that I might sleep. A cookie would do it. But I don't have any cookies, and I certainly don't want to make a whole batch so that I can have one or two. That's how these recipes were born. I've been cooking for one for a long time now, and there was't any reason why dessert shouldn't be part of it!

This recipe kicks off a whole week of cookies. You shouldn't have to do without homemade cookies just because you only want one! (Or two.)

         4 TBLSP all-purpose flour

         1 TBLSP granulated sugar

         1 TBLSP brown sugar

          Pinch of salt

          Pinch of baking soda

         1 ½ TBLSP vegan butter

         1 TBLSP water

         1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

         1-2 TBLSP chocolate chips

          ½-1 TBLSP walnut pieces

Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease a cookie sheet or a small piece of aluminum foil. Or bravely use parchment paper.

  1. Measure all the dry ingredients (flour, sugars, salt, and baking soda) into a small bowl.
  2. Add the wet ingredients (butter, water, and vanilla) to it, and mix and mash thoroughly with a fork. It's easier if the butter is slightly softened.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnut pieces.
  4. Plop the mixture into two blops in the center of the cookie sheet. You might flatten it a little, for even baking.
  5. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Bake for an additional 1-2 minutes if the cookie is too soft or gooey. It will be very crumbly while it’s hot.
  6. Let it cool on the pan. It will hold together just fine once it’s mostly cooled off. 
Oh, and the best part? Because they're vegan, you can eat the raw cookie dough!
