One-Bowl, No-Mixer, No-Chill, Extra-Large Chocolate Chip Cookie For One

One-Bowl, No-Mixer, No-Chill, Extra-Large Chocolate Chip Cookie For One – An incredibly FAST and EASY recipe that produces ONE extra-large soft and chewy cookie that’s loaded with chocolate!! One bowl to wash, no mixer, and no waiting!!

Recently I made these One-Bowl, No-Mixer, No-Chill Oatmeal Cookies and that recipe is awesome for so many reasons which are self-explanatory given the title.

But it makes a dozen cookies and not that I wouldn’t love a dozen cookies all the time, but my waistline doesn’t need a dozen cookies all the time. Enter this fast and easy recipe with built-in portion control.

There’s only one bowl to wash, no mixer to drag out, and no waiting around for dough to chill.

The buttery extra-large cookie has chewy edges, a soft center, and is loaded with chocolate in every bite.

Cornstarch keeps the cookie softbatch-style soft and tender and I definitely recommend it. However, if you don’t keep it on hand it can be omitted, noting you will compromise a bit of softness.

The mound of unbaked cookie dough should be about 1 1/2-inches thick but because we’re not chilling the dough, the cookie flattens and spreads quite a bit while baking.

I recommend slightly under-baking the cookie because it just tastes better. Then again I am not a crispy cookie person at all.

You can eat the whole the whole thing yourself, handle your chocolate chip cookie craving, and not have another oodles of other cookies staring back at you from your counter, begging to be eaten (especially when you’re watching mindless tv late at night).

The cookie is big enough to share. I put my hand next to it (I have long fingers and a fairly large hand – I’m 5’10”) to show you how big it is.

But let’s be real, you’re not sharing this.

Just like you’re not sharing this One-Minute Microwave Brownie, either.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg yolk from a large egg (discard white or save for another use)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, very soft
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for adding on top before and after baking if desired (recommended)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. To a large bowl, add the egg, butter, sugars, vanilla, and mix with a spoon aggressively for about 90 seconds, or until smooth and slightly fluffed, i.e. your bicep and shoulder should be burning if you’ve mixed well enough.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, cornstarch (keeps cookie extra soft), salt, and stir to combine.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  5. Roll dough in your hands to create a ball. Place ball on prepared baking sheet and flatten about halfway or so that the mound is about 1 1/2 inches thick (because dough it not chilled, cookie will spread and flatten quite a bit while baking). If desired, add additional chocolate chips to the top of cookie (recommended)
  6. Bake for about 12 to 14 minutes (shorter for softer cookies, longer for more well-done cookies), or until edges have set and top is just set, even if slightly undercooked, pale, and glossy in the center; don’t overbake. Cookie firms up it cools.
  7. Remove baking sheet from oven, top cookie with additional chocolate chips as desired (recommended), and allow cookie to cool on baking sheet until serving. Cookie is best warm and fresh.
