I'm Kind Of Obsessed With This 10-Minute Cookie Recipe
Single-Serving Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie
MAKES 1 COOKIE
2 tablespoons peanut butter, preferably natural
2 heaping tablespoons quick‑cooking or instant oats
1 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon semisweet chocolate chips
Flaky sea salt, for garnish (optional)
HOW TO develop IT
Stir the peanut butter, oats, sugar, and vanilla together in a small bowl until totally combined. Using your fingers, shape the mixture into a 2½-inch-wide (6‑cm), ½-inch-thick (12‑mm) disk. Press the tines of a fork into the top of the cookie. Chill on a parchment paper–lined plate in the freezer until firm, approximately 5 minutes.
Once the cookie is cold and tough, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 15-moment bursts until stirrable. Spread half the chilled cookie with the chocolate, and sprinkle with a microscopic flaky sea salt, whether you like. The chocolate should set when it hits the cold cookie, but whether it doesn’t, you can return it to the freezer for a minute or two.
