This recipe yields one large soft, chewy, buttery single-serving chocolate chip cookie that is ideal for one or two individuals. One dish, no mixer needed, no chilling necessary, and ready in 20 minutes! Try the huge double chocolate chip cookie next time.
I’m having more acute desires for particular sweets than ever before. No, I’m not pregnant. Some nights, I can’t stop thinking about strawberry cheesecake ice cream, funfetti popcorn, or cannoli cupcakes.
But all of those items will need full batches, which will be much too much food for a single night’s hunger. Sure, I can freeze the leftovers, but every now and then I have a desire and want nothing to do with that specific cuisine for a while.
I repeat I am not pregnant.

What is my solution? Desserts made in small batches, such as this single serve, massive, soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie.
They’re fresh out of the oven in 20 minutes after I start creating the dough, they’re simple to prepare, and they’re large enough to share with my spouse. If that’s what I wanted to do.
- You’re wanting cookies and just need one or two to satisfy your urge.
- You’re trying to resist the urge to stress-eat a dozen cookies (no, I’m not speaking from experience, why do you ask?!)
- You don’t have enough ingredients to make a whole batch of cookies.
- The dough doesnt need to be chilled
- It can be made in one bowl
- A whisk and a wooden spoon are all that is required instead of a mixer.
- It’s a fantastic opportunity to utilize a large spatula (affiliate link) like this one.
- Gently push down on the top of the cookie dough mound to ensure consistent depth and an even cooking. If you like a more doughy core, just mound the dough on the baking sheet and toss caution to the wind!
- Before baking, sprinkle a few additional chocolate chunks or chocolate chips on top of the cookie. It’s entirely decorative, but the added benefit is, well, more chocolate.
- For a sweet and salty taste combo, sprinkle flaky sea salt on top of the cookie before baking. It is not essential, but it is strongly suggested!
- If you want to spice things up even more, you might add chopped nuts, M&Ms, or dried fruit like cranberries. I suggest no more than 2 Tablespoons of extra seasonings.
- Use a quarter sheet pan (affiliate link) and a quarter sheet silicone mat (affiliate link) for a small batch recipe like this!
If you like two cookies rather than one large cookie, divide the dough in half and bake them for a little shorter time. You may alternatively divide the dough into three smaller cookies.
Bake for 8-9 minutes, or until the cookies are set on top and golden around the edges, spacing them a few inches apart to allow for spreading.

I want to make additional flavors and variants of one large cookie recipe in the future, so keep a look out for such recipes.
