Can an escrow officer do a personal deed recording without an escrow?

The answer will almost always be no. Most escrow officers will not risk the liability that "just writing up and recording a deed" outside of an escrow will cause. The escrow officer is liable for any mistakes, liens that they (or you) don't know about. Even if you expect to pay the EO, the service and recording of the document, an error is never worth a career change or a lien for the loss to the title company against her personal home (escrow officers pay for all financial losses out of their own pocket or some tile companies, they will lien an escrow officers home ...regardless of a spouse or not.)

What is a Neutral Third Party?

The escrow officer / title agent and / or the title company are considered a "neutral third party". Independent of buyer and seller and respective agents as well as the Lender.

Simply put, as an example;  if you ask the question "Is this a good deal or am I getting taken to the cleaners by someone?", the title company and / or any of its employees cannot comment or make any reccomendations to you or anyone one way or another in regard to loan quality, commissions, purchase agreements or weather or not your getting a fair price for the property either as the buyer or seller.

We (the neutral third party) would encourage you to consult legal counsel if you have such questions on this topic prior to signing any legal or binding contract.
