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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat toaster oven to 350.
  2. In a small bowl stir together butter, sugar, vanilla, and 1 tbsp of water with a fork till blended.
  3. 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.
  4. Stir in additonal flavor: chocolate chips, oatmeal and cinnamon, peanut butter (reduce water,) maple flavor and white chocolate chips- the possibilities are endless!
  5. 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.
  6. Enjoy!

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!
