Because sometimes, you just need a cookie. This takes about half an hour and produces cookies.

It's the age-old Nestle Tollhouse recipe, scaled down about as far as you can go (1 egg is hard to split any further). So it makes, like, a dozen cookies or so, depending on how big you make them. Enough cookies to split with your spouse while watching Supernatural or something.

1/2 c butter (one stick)
1 egg
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

1 c flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.

Combine wet ingredients (butter, egg, sugars, vanilla) in a big bowl. Add flour, soda, and salt on top. Stir dry ingredients on top until soda and salt are incorporated into flour; then dig a little deeper to combine wet and dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips (or whatever). Drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet, bake at 375 for 12 minutes.

I love this recipe. I have a batch in the oven right now. They are exactly the right amount of effort when I just crave a cookie.
