Okay, so on to the delicious part. You know when you find a cookie recipe on Pinterest and it has 92,385 ingredients and it’s super complicated and ends up either a Pinterest fail or you never end up making them? Well this cookie recipe isn’t like that! This cookie recipe is super easy.
I did all of the measuring, but my kiddos did basically all of the work. That’s how simple it is. The hardest part is remembering to set the butter out an hour or so before you start so that it has time to warm up to room temperature.
And because these are mini chocolate chip cookies, they turn out super tiny and cute.
So here it is…
Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies by Jessica Glaze
Prep time: 20 mins
Bake time: 5 mins
Yields approximately: about 10 dozen
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light or dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking soda
Heaping 1/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, cooking spray, or a silicon baking mat.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together with an electric mixer until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, beating until incorporated, and scraping down the bowl as needed. Beat in salt and baking soda until combined, then add the flour on a low speed until just mixed. The dough will look crumbly at this point. With a spatula, fold/stir in the mini chocolate chips.
Scoop dough out with a slight heaping 1/2 tsp at a time and drop onto baking sheet. Leave about an inch between each ball of dough.
When over is heated to 350°F, bake in cookies for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet several minutes. They should still feel soft and slightly under-baked when you remove them from the oven. They will continue to cook slightly once removed from oven, so be careful not to over-bake and do not remove them from the hot cookie sheet.
And that’s it! Easy, peasy. Now go get started and don’t forget to share your pictures on Instagram with #CreativeGlazeChallenge.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
