Chocolate Chip Cookie for "One"

Yesterday I had a craving for a chocolate chip cookie so strong I could barely see straight. Does that ever happen to you? Probably not. I had also been cooped up all day in stormy Texas weather and found myself doing a lot of standing around in the kitchen. Reaching for a cheese curd, eating a cracker, looking through the freezer. But nothing was quite doing it for me so I decided to make myself a cookie. You guys, it really improved the overall quality of my day.

Melt the butter in a bowl, then mix in all other ingredients except the chocolate chips.  Set the oven to 350. While it's preheating, place the cookie dough in the freezer to cool it down (otherwise the cookie will turn out really flat since the butter is already warm and will spread in the oven).  Cool for at least 15 minutes. Mix in the chocolate chips, then place in a flattened ball on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 14-15 minutes.
