Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie

There’s just something so cute about a single serving size dessert. Maybe it’s knowing you don’t have to share it, I don’t know, but I have a new single serving size that’s pretty remarkable.

One cookie.

One GIANT cookie that serves one (okay, you might want to share this if you’re feeling generous, but divide it before you take a bite or you may change your mind!

There are times when you don’t need/want to make up a whole batch of cookies, am I right? This recipe makes one large cookie in a matter of minutes! I saw this on Southern Living’s You Tube Channel and knew I had to try it. Here’s all there is to it:

Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie

  • 1 Tbl softened butter
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbl flour
  • 1/8 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 Tbl Chocolate Chips

Mix all ingredients together. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes for soft cookie; 15 for crispy. Sprinkle with coarse salt.

Hot from the oven with a glass of cold milk, this makes an incredible treat! This might be a sweet dessert for your Valentine!

I always under-bake my cookies because I am Team Soft Cookie! Which are you; Team crispy or Team soft?

If you need another single serving dessert, check out this fruit cobbler.

Enjoy!

Individual Berry Cobblers & What We Really Eat

Happy Monday!  First let me start with sharing a new recipe that I made as a special treat for my cobbler-loving husband!  If you need a treat for Fourth of July these would be perfect.  You can make one, or you can multiply the recipe to make as many as you need.  These are Berry Cobblers,  served in individual ramekins, making them a perfect size and also easy to serve!

I found the recipe here on this site. They were so easy to pull together, and with no sugar added to the fruit, I think they’re a really healthy little dessert, well, maybe the ice cream added some fat and calories, but you can’t eat cobbler without ice cream!

Individual Berry Cobblers
Ingredients
  • NOTE: These directions are per each serving so multiply it by how many servings you plan to make.
  • ½ cup berries or fruit of choice
  • 2 tbsp oatmeal
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, slightly packed
  • 1½ tbsp softened butter
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of baking soda
  • a couple drops of vanilla

Instructions –
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place berries/fruit In a ramekin or other small baking dish
In a separate bowl, Mix all other ingredients….oatmeal, flour, sugar, butter, salt, baking soda, and vanilla. Use your hand or a fork to make sure all ingredients are incorporated well.
Sprinkle oatmeal mixture evenly over berries/fruit.
Place ramekin on a baking dish (just in case it boils over a little bit) and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until topping is beginning to brown.

Do you ever look at people’s You Tube videos of their food and wonder if they really eat? I mean, sometimes it’s more about the tableware and presentation than the food.  To me, the most important part of mealtime is the food!  We really enjoy our food over here and I want it to be delicious and pretty – not just pretty!

So, I’m going to close today by giving you a little look at my plates from this past week so you can see what we really ate.
Here’s a real look at our meals:

I don’t just take pictures of pretty food – we eat real meals every day at home.  Presentation is part of that, but also good food, prepared and cooked at home to nourish body and soul! Also the time at the table, sitting and talking as we eat, sip on glasses of tea, or nibble on sweet treats like this berry cobbler!  Meal time is a huge part of family time.  Let’s make dinner delicious, nourishing, pretty and memorable!

What have you made this week that your family loved?
