I have a thing with making “recipes for one,” they are so fun when you really just feel like making yourself a darn cookie or even when you need to perk up a friends’ day. Place the cookie in a cellophane bag, wrap in a bow and your good to go!
All you need are a few staple pantry ingredients, one bowl and a saucepan to brown some butter.
Here’s the process of browning butter. Please note, you only need 2 tablespoons for this recipe! This is just a visual 2 tablespoons only take about 3 minutes to brown, it happens very quick.
Place some all-purpose flour into a wide bowl. I love to use Gold Medal Flour for all of my baking, best results for my cookies! Please note you can literally just add all ingredients to the bowl in any order. Use my photos and recipe as a guideline. Any order will do
You’ll need some pure vanilla.
Baking soda, salt and cornstarch. The cornstarch makes the cookies nice and soft.
Add your sugar right to the bowl.
Add your brown butter.
Add your beaten egg.
Mix it all together and feast your eyes on this!
Transfer dough to your baking sheet.
Press evenly and sprinkle with kosher salt. Time to bake!
Golden brown and fabulous!
