mini chocolate chip cookies

It’s approaching mid-afternoon and you really need a snack. Ok it’s 9:45am. It’s fine.

And you totally feel like cookies. Which is totally normal at 9:45am since it’s the holidays and there are treats everywhere.

And you know what better than just cookies? Many mini cookies.

Because things that are mini do not have calories. And when things are mini you can eat 27 of them. And they’re cute.

Cute! Cute! Cute!

Even better, I really think Santa will like these. I mean, flying all over the world must take a lot out of him, but the man also has A LOT of cookies to eat. Make him mini cookies (with butter and sugar) with a mini shot of milk (from a cow) and he’ll only be on a mini sugar-high with some delightful dairy in his tummy.

What you’ll need:
(makes about 50 silver dollar sized cookies)

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups AP flour
1/4 + 1/8 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips (1 cup regular chocolate chips)

How to:
Pre-heat oven to 350°

In large bowl, beat together softened butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla. In medium bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt then add dry ingredients to wet and mix till combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Refrigerate batter 2-24 hours.

Scoop 1/2 teaspoon balls of cold batter onto greased/parchment lined/silpat lined baking sheet.
Bake 6 minutes. Will look slightly under-cooked, but firm up perfectly resting on a cooling rack for a few minutes.

I hope Santa likes crispy edges and soft and gooey insides. Santa? Feel free to use the microwave, heat a handful of mini-cookies for 30 seconds.

 

ps: 2 years ago I made Santa these easy chocolate mint cake mix cookies. He was very happy. I was very happy, too. These cookies are REALLY good.
