Deep Dish Cookie Bowls! Doesn’t get better than this. Buttery, crisped cookie ridges with a melty chocolate and slightly underdone center, served in bowls with a scoop of ice cream. YUM.



  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix butter and brown sugar. Whisk in egg yolk and vanilla. 
  2. Stir in flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips. Divide between two 8-ounce ramekins and press gently to fill the bottom of each (see notes if you don’t have a ramekin).
  3. Bake for 18-22 minutes (18 for underbaked, 20 for semi-baked, 22 for almost fully baked). Allow to cool for a few minutes so they firm up a bit, but definitely, obviously, of course, eat while warm, ideally with some vanilla ice cream. YUM!

If you do not have ramekins, a few options:

  • Baking in a muffin tin
    Yield: 4 mini bowls
    Cook Time: 8-10 minutes
    Notes: Very similar to the ramekin muffin, just smaller.
  • Baking in a regular small bowl
    Yield: 2 bowls
    Bake Time: 14-18 minutes
    Notes: We used small-ish oven-safe bowls, and they came out like thick cookies.
  • Baking regular cookies on a sheet pan
    Yield: 5 cookies
    Bake Time: 7-9 minutes
    Notes: Great, but came out a little flatter than these.
