Pinterest Recipe: One-Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookies For Two

Now this isn't a fancy and new recipe or anything today.  This is just your basic chocolate chip cookie but, it's a mini version that makes only four cookies!  "What? Why would someone only need four cookies?" you may ask. Well, if you're a sugar addict and you're afraid that if you make a full batch that in the next twenty-four hours that you're going to devour the entire batch, this recipe is for you!

It's great for Russ and I because even when I halve a recipe we still had too many cookies for the both of us. That's almost why the people in Russ' office get so many baked goodies so I don't end up eating all of them. That and I love baking and hearing about how much they love my stuff.

Anyways, I doubled this recipe to make a few extra cookies to put in Russ' lunch this week (yes, I doubled a mini recipe... I'm goofy). I'm definitely filing this recipe away for later use because it's so convenient. 

One-Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookies!
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
A pinch of salt
A pinch of cinnamon
2 tablespoons shortening
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon beaten egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix together the shortening, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add the tablespoon of beaten egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll dough into four cookie balls and place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet (you can also bake them in two lightly greased tart pans, a muffin top pan, cupcake pan, whatever you desire). Flatten them slightly with your hand.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
