Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1
Author: Adapted from www.cookingclassy.com
  • 2 Tbsp (1oz/30g) butter
  • 3 Tbsp light-brown sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda (this is a ½ of a ¼ tsp)
  • 4 tbsp chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate)
  • (This recipe will yield about 250g of cookie dough, chocolate included)
  1. Preheat oven to 350oF (180oC).
  2. Place butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl and melt
  3. To the melted butter, add brown sugar, salt, 1 tbsp egg, the vanilla, flour and baking soda. Stir with a spoon until well combined, about 20 - 30 seconds.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  5. Shape dough into a 3-inch disk on parchment paper lined baking sheet
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, until cookie is golden. You don’t want to over bake your cookie so it stays soft and doughie in the middle.
  7. Serve warm or allow to cool on a wire rack then store in an airtight container.
Recipe Notes

*To get 1 Tbsp egg, crack egg into a small bowl, whisk until yolk and white are well blended, then measure out 1 Tbsp.
*If you don’t have brown sugar you can use white
