One Lonesome Cookie

I came across this recipe in an old issue of Food & Wine magazine in a section entitled “How To Not Gorge On Sweets”; it is designed for a person with little to no self-control such as myself. Delicious, easy and oh so satisfying without the option of reaching for a second cookie. A toaster oven is essential- no one wants to turn on the oven for just one cookie. 

1 T unsalted butter
1 T light brown sugar, packed
1 t granulated sugar
a couple drops of vanilla
2 T flour
1 1/2 T dark chocolate chunks or chips
Maldon sea salt

Preheat the toaster oven to 350º. Soften the butter in the microwave and using a fork, blend in both the sugars and the vanilla. Blend in the flour and then work in the chocolate chunks (I had to use my fingers). Scoop the dough onto a parchment lined toaster oven tray and flatten slightly. Sprinkle with Maldon salt and bake for around 13-15 minutes until lightly browned and crisp around the edges. Let cool for 5 minutes or so.
