Instead of making regular cookies, or one giant cookie in a pie pan for your next baking project, try these deep-dish cookies baked in individual-sized ramekins. The thick, chocolatey cookies are warm and gooey in the middle, and crispy-crusty around the edges. In short: This cookie makes watching TV in your pajamas an event to look forward to.
I’ve made a lot of cookies, cookie bars, and pie-pan cookies, but somehow it never occurred to me to use a smaller pan to make a personal version of a pie-pan cookie. Ramekins are perfect for that and they can also serve as a bowl if you want to put some ice cream on top of your big, slightly-underbaked cookie. I highly encourage everybody to put ice cream on top of these cookies, if you have it. Why make a hot bowl of freshly baked chocolate chip cookie and then skip the ice cream? The ice cream is what takes this idea to the next level.
The recipe as written makes two deep-dish cookie ramekins, so it’s good for a couple people. Each person gets their own, so you can share the experience without having to worry about someone else’s spoon getting in your ice cream. You need about an eighth of the size of a regular batch of cookie dough for this recipe, so you can make just a little bit of cookie dough whenever you want it, without having to make a big batch of cookies all at once.
