Hi! It’s Wednesday again, and I thought this would be the perfect time to share a midweek treat.

So what have you guys been baking lately? I’ve seen so many people baking their own breads with yeast for the first time and making different types of banana breads using overripe bananas. And I’ve received a lot of questions about mochi muffins, which don’t require yeast or flour in case you can’t find either at the store.

But lately, it’s hard to bake a full batch of treats while sheltering in place. We can’t really bring a batch of cookies or a half loaf of banana bread to work to share with coworkers or deliver desserts to family and friends. Things are a little different right now. Some of us don’t have a full oven either. Just a toaster oven. So I decided to make a single serving of walnut chocolate chunk cookie in a mini cast iron skillet baked in a toaster oven. For those dessert cravings.

A single serving would make it so that when we want dessert we can make it at any time without worrying about how much flour or egg we have left or trying to finish all that dessert on our own. I used a 3.5 inch mini cast iron skillet to bake the cookie in, but you can definitely use a piece of parchment paper too.

This cookie is filled with buttery goodness, melted chocolate, and toasted walnuts in every bite. Soo good. And soo perfect for those mid afternoon dessert cravings.

Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 350F. If using the toaster oven, set it to the bake setting.

In a small bowl, mix together room temperature butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until well incorporated. Add all purpose flour and mix until combined.

Fold in chopped walnuts and chocolate chunks or chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into a ball and set it into the mini cast iron skillet or just on a small sheet of parchment paper.

    I’ll substitute pecans for the walnuts–much tastier, in my opinion. I shared this on Facebook. It will save a few waistlines. A friend of mine baked 3 dozen cookies and since she lives alone, she had to eat them all by herself!

      I know! It’s been a problem so I’m trying to share dessert recipes that are smaller in scale. But if your friend does make bigger batches, she can just 1) roll the cookie dough into balls and freeze them on a sheet pan. Once it’s frozen, put the frozen cookie dough balls into ziploc bags and then she can bake them when she has cravings. Just add an extra minute or two to the baking. 2) if she already baked the cookies, she can just place them in a ziploc bag and freeze those. And reheat them a little before eating. Hope that helps!

    I will not be using a skillet and just one type of sugar but this is definitely something I can bake at some point.. Wait I wanted to do macaroons! but I can easily replace the walnuts with the coconut shreds I have. 🙂
