Ingredients for this individual chocolate chip cookie

We made this individual chocolate chip cookie recipe with all the same ingredients you’ll find in our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  • Unsalted Butter: Using unsalted butter means that you can fully control the amount of salt going into your cookies and also ensures that it browns evenly. You’ll brown the butter for a nutty, toasty deep flavor as the base for your cookies!
  • Sugar: Chocolate chip cookies should always be made with a mixture of brown and white sugar
  • Eggs: Eggs will bind your cookies together. A single egg yolk will gives these cookies their soft, chewy, not too cakey texture.
  • Vanilla Extract: Do NOT leave out the vanilla.
  • Flour: All purpose flour is our flour of choice for these chewy cookies. It creates a tender but hearty crumb. Make sure when you are measuring your flour you measure it carefully using a spoon to aerate the flour. We recommend adding the first cup in and then adding the remaining 3/4 cup a little at a time. Browned butter evaporates as it browns, meaning that the amount of butter can vary depending on how long you browned it for which can lead to less liquid in your cookie dough. See the directions for more guidance on this!
  • Chocolate Chips: When it comes to chocolate chip cookies, your chocolate can make or break your cookie. Splurge on a high quality semi sweet or dark chocolate. Milk chocolate is child’s play. So are the store brand chocolate chips. Go for a good bar, chocolate disks, or a high quality chunk. Whatever you choose, use 2 cups of it and load up your cookie dough for big, melty pools of chocolate throughout your cookie.
  • Salt: Baked goods NEED salt. Without it they’re just cloyingly sweet. Salt adds that perfectly nuanced salty-sweet flavor that pushes a baked good from good to great.

Tips for making singe serve chocolate chip cookies

Everyone has their own secrets to making the perfect chocolate chip cookies, but I swear by these. Get your notebooks out.

  • Make sure you measure your ingredients carefully: This single serve chocolate chip cookie majorly scales down your normal cookie recipe, so there is not much room for error. If you’re off by a teaspoon in a full recipe it’s not going to make that much of a difference, but in a
  • Only mix until just combined: Repeat after me, “overmixing ruins everything.” I know it can be fun to whisk away and overwork your dough as an excuse to eat more cookie dough, but do not do it.  You will get dry, tough, sad cookies.
  • Under bake them: When in doubt UNDER bake. The cookies will continue to bake as they cool. Plus, no one ever complained about a gooey center 🙂

Enjoy your chocolate chip cookie!

  1. This recipe was perfect! Especially if you’re low on chocolate chips. I did a mix of mini chocolate chips and chopped chocolate, and I just used regular melted butter. They were gooey and crisp, and flaky salt on top make them even better. (:

  2. I consider myself a pretty good baker. I’ve made these twice, followed the recipe & they haven’t turned out right at all. They taste fine but they spread & end up about as big as my face🤦🏻‍♀️ What am I missing!!

    • Hi Meghan! It sounds like maybe you’re underbrowning your butter or under measuring your flour! Some butter will evaporate off when it browns which should leave the cookies the perfect consistency!

  3. I make these weekly when I need something sweet but don’t want a whole batch of cookie dough in my house! So so easy & yummy ❤️

  4. These were easy and fantastic. Much better than crumbl cookies or insomnia. Try these you won’t be disappointed!
