What’s shaking readers?
We have had yet another ridiculous snow storm in the Northeast (Splendid!) Which meant another snow day for yours truly sitting around, day drinking in my fleece pants and watching the entire 4th season of Glee before my free trial of amazon prime runs out. No joke I didn’t go outside once yesterday.
With all of this sitting around doing nothing on my plate I was looking for any opportunity to save time (seriously, Glee isn’t going to watch itself you guys). And thus I was deeply excited to find a dessert I could make in the span of a heartwarming rendition of “Teenage Dream”
Single Serving Cookie Pie
1 tbs sugar
1 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs melted butter
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup flour
a few drops vanilla
2 tbs chocolate chips
1. Mix butter, sugars, vanilla and egg yolk in a small bowl until well blended. Mix in flour and salt until dough forms. Mix in Chocolate chips.
2. Place dough in a ramekin (you can also use any kind of microwave safe mug, I like using my small ramekins because it makes me feel fancy and it is more like a cookie shape). Microwave for 60 seconds. Enjoy!
Seriously guys this is the easiest thing ever and you most likely have all the ingredients already in your house. Be careful with the vanilla, I found that it came out really quickly and I ended up with a very vanilla-y cookie. It’s such a negligible amount you can probably skip it if you want. I put a small scoop of butter pecan ice cream on mine which was delicious. AND if you forget to put the salt in you can just let the tears from your emotional response to the break-up episode of Glee Season 4 act as a stand in (I just miss Finnchel so much you guys).
Have a dessert cocktail for me, something that pairs well with chocolate and vicarious heart break.
