Today is one of the most aggravating days known to man. The dark, dreary, rainy yet still warm Thursday that suddenly breaks into sunshine. This is after I've officially dressed like the laziest college student ever in my big baggy Rutgers sweats. Ugh.
But I have a treat that will get you through these kind of days, or any day for that matter,' where you crave something cozy, gooey, chewy, and deliciously sweet.
And fear not my college companions! Are you armed with only a microwave? This recipe is dedicated to you:
Meet the Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One
(gasps, ooohs, aaahs)
I know, I KNOW. How could we have not all stumbled upon this sooner? It's so freaking easy I almost didn't include step-by-step photos. Almost.
But I love you all so much, I wanted you to see that this recipe is tried, true, and totally addicting.
Here is all you need in terms of "equipment". You'll also want tablespoonfuls of butter, flour, white sugar, brown sugar, an egg yolk, a few drops of vanilla and a pinch of salt. Oh and a healthy portion of chocolate chips.
Stir in sugars, vanilla, egg yolk and salt.
Stir in flour. Stir or just plain old cover with chocolate chips.
Microwave for 60 seconds.
I think I could get used to weather like this with a cookie like that.
Enjoy plain or with a healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream.
