Simple recipe for when you just want a cookie or two, (and don't want a whole batch waiting to get eaten!) It is easily adaptable to most any flavor; and also great to eat as dough (no eggs). I leave out the baking soda and salt because I don't care if my cookie rises, as long as it tastes good.
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon baking soda (optional)
- 2 tablespoons flour
- Preheat toaster oven to 350.
- In a small bowl stir together butter, sugar, vanilla, and 1 tbsp of water with a fork till blended.
- Stir in flour (and salt and baking soda if desired.) You may need to stir in a little more water to get the correct consitency.
- Stir in additonal flavor: chocolate chips, oatmeal and cinnamon, peanut butter (reduce water,) maple flavor and white chocolate chips- the possibilities are endless!
- Drop onto a small pan and bake in your toaster for 10-15 minutes (you have to watch it carefully) till golden around the edges. If you want it chewy, eat it warm, if you want it crunchy, wait till it cools.
I just tried these cookies tonight. I quadrupled the recipe and added 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder and a few drops of mint extract. I used whole wheat flour and Splenda too. They took about 11min to cook in my toaster oven. They were good...perfect for a snack for 2. It made 12 small cookies. Thanks for an easy little snack!
That was the most satisfying after-school snack I've had since grade school. And the single-serving size is perfect since my husband is diabetic and I have no children. Genius!
This is perfect! I never thought of making just one cookie. And I find that using this as a base you can test a new cookie recipe without having to bake the whole dozen. Thanks!
